Cycling Tips

On-road cycling

The Georges River region has a network of on-road cycle paths which are identified by logos painted on the left-hand side of the road, as well as the presence of signage, warning motorists and pedestrians to ‘Watch for Cyclists.’

Off-road cycling

Off-road cycle routes in the local area enable cyclists to ride on a paved surface without interference from vehicles.

Shared paths

Shared paths are a popular choice for people who are looking for a motor-vehicle free route.

Pedestrians have priority on shared paths, and cyclists are required by law to ride to the left of the path. It is suggested that you ring your bicycle bell to warn pedestrians of your approach, especially if you are behind them.
