Do you like to ride in Banyule?

Did you know that Banyule has an extensive network of 40kms of cycling routes both on and off road across the municipality?

The off road trails run through beautiful open space parks and reserves in and around Banyule and the on-road routes are on quiet local roads for maximum cyclist safety. Overall the local bicycle network is made up of 12 of these on-road bicycle routes.

Our local routes also connect to a wider network of cycling routes, across neighbouring areas, to allow cyclists to access areas outside of Banyule.

We are committed to maintaining, developing and encouraging usage of our cycling network and our work in this area is guided by the Banyule Bicycle Strategy.

Banyule Bicycle Route Review

We developed the current Banyule Bicycle Strategy back in 2009. It’s time to revisit the Strategy to make sure we are doing all we can to ensure Banyule cyclists have plenty of safe usable route options to get to where they need to be or just to get out and about.

As a first step we are taking a closer look at our local on-road routes and developing on-line cycling maps. Once developed the maps will be available on our website and will be designed to help you find a route to explore.

What we are doing

We have completed a preliminary audit of our local bicycle routes along with gathering user perspectives. Thank you for submitting your views on cycling in Banyule over the last few months as a part of our local bicycle route review. We have compiled your comments into a summary document : 'What you told us about cycling in Banyule' . This is in the document library to the right.

“If you want to have a cycling culture you have to get women cycling, so ask them what they need, which routes and infrastructure. ”

“Better bike tracks = more cyclists on them. Priority = usage. Plenty River Trail at Partington's Flat = potential, but low use = no upgrade.”
