Biking in Brisbane

 

Thanks Brisbane's City Council for the construction of more than 500 kilometers of bikeways across the city that have attracted biking enthusiasts to promote a more healthy way of traveling across Brisbane, but also a more fun way to discover more about the Brisbane River, the Moreton Bay and of course, the Brisbane suburbs.

Engulf the Brisbane River experience and follow the flowing water via the Bicentennial Bikeway, which was built in 1988. Enjoy the tracks as you traverse from the Central Business District along Coronation Drive to Toowong. At times, you may choose to stop for a while and take a cup of coffee at Park Road while simply enjoying the sight of the river.
Biking at Moreton Bay brings adventurers to a number of options.

One of these is the picturesque Sandgate Foreshores which provide access to the bay from Decker Park at Brighton to Cabbage Tree Creek

at Shorncliffe. Explore the bay with the sights of birds playing in the horizon and crabs being swept away and to the shorelines.

The Wynnun Manly Esplanade, located along Elanora Park and Fig Tree Point, on the other hand, serves as path door to southern Moreton Bay.

These bike lanes serve bikers with an ultimate view of the coastal area, giving them the freedom to take an easy bike ride while enjoying the sea breezes. You can also choose to take the Boondall Wetlands and enjoy the northern part of Brisbane and the edge of Moreton Bay. This is equivalent to 1000 hectares of mangroves, woodlands, wetlands, grasslands and open forests along your directions. Transform your Boondall experience in a two-in-one activity and include bird watching in your itinerary as well, as the land is blessed with hundreds of bird species alongside with a healthy sprout of flora

and fauna.

You may also choose to explore Brisbane's prestigious academic institutions and bike around the campus. The Nathan Campus in Griffith University is a bike-friendly campus located just ten kilometers south of the Central Business District. Commuting in the university via bicycles has actually been one of the best ways to travel around the campus. University of Queensland’s St. Lucia campus's 114-hectare site and Queensland University of Technology's Gardens Point campus have also attracted bikers. The relaxing academic ambiance of these campuses, adorned with historic buildings, gardens and

parks have made these campuses a haven for bike riders.

If you want to explore Brisbane's suburbs by bicycle, you make consider the following routes. Stones Corner, famous for its shopping bargains, is located

in two most frequently used bikeways in Brisbane: the South East Freeway Bikeway and Norman Creek Bikeway. Carindale, where you can enjoy a

different treat of entertainment and shopping, is situated in Bulimba Creek Bikeway. Another important bike route is the Sandgate Road Bike Lane, providing access to Nundah Village Center.
