There are more than 50kms of informal and formal bicycle paths/routes throughout the City of Banyule that connect with major parks, reserves, schools and shopping precincts. Whether you are riding for sport, recreation or just 'to get around', cycling is a fast and efficient mode of transport. Cycling will save you money, help the environment and improve your fitness. It is also much less stressful than sitting in a car!
In recent years, Banyule has improved its bicycle network, predominantly catering for recreational users.
Banyule's major shared trails (Main Yarra, Plenty River and Banyule Trails) all provide great connections into the broader Metropolitan Trails Network (MTU). A fourth trail, the Darebin Creek Trail is currently in the process of also being connect to the MTU.
The challenge now is to develop a combination of appropriate off-road and on-road networks to ensure cycling becomes a realistic travel choice for all residents and visitors to Banyule.
In addition, there are many excellent formal and informal walking routes available throughout the municipality on footpaths and shared trails through our parks and reserves.
Details of the various cycling and walking tracks can be found in the Banyule TravelSmart Map and TravelSmart information brochure which is available to download under Related Information. Please note that the TravelSmart Map is a very large document.
