Ride along the Brisbane River, with the possibilities of riding to Toowong, Kangaroo Point, Southbank and the botanical gardens. There are many parks, barbeque areas and views to make use during a ride on this path. There are plenty of places to lock your bike up in Southbank if it’s a trip with the family or to have coffee onlooking the river.
Red Hill to Newmarket
Follow Ithaca Creek on a possible 7km return journey that is great for kids. As this cycle path follows the creek, expect to see ducks and other animals. You can make stops at playgrounds, barbeques or have a picnic, most of the track is sheltered from traffic noise with trees shading the path.
Brookside to Toombul
This 13km pathway was recently renovated by the Brisbane City Council. This path is quiet and travels along the river inlet, Kedron Brook. Why not have a picnic after or during your ride? Stop at Shaw Park (Kalinga Park), as it is a favourite among cyclists and among kids! The park even has a mini traffic track with street signs for children to cycle on.
Wynnum to Manly
This is a great scenic seafront ride. You can choose to do the 10km return journey or catch the train in one direction. There are multiple options for stops, including cafes, pubs, markets, barbecues and the option to go for a swim!
Moreton Bay cycleway
You can travel from Ted Smout Bridge to Deception Bay for a 26km one way trip. There’s nothing nicer than riding your bike with a great view and on this ride you will have views of Moreton island and the bay. The ride can take you to Redcliffe, where you can go to the local weekend markets.
