Bike Riding

The City of Port Phillip's geographic location combined with better than average bicycle facilities and low journey-to-work travel distances provides a unique opportunity to further promote this attractive, healthy and environmentally friendly form of transport.

The city contains an extensive on- and off-road bicycle network connecting the majority of areas within the municipality. There are approximately 49km of existing on-road routes and 14.5km of existing off-road routes, not including those at Albert Park Lake reserve.

Port Phillip also has seven Melbourne Bike Share stations and in excess of 300 bicycle racks located in all shopping centres, foreshore areas and railway stations. New racks are installed on an ongoing basis as required or requested. The majority of off-road recreational paths have now been constructed, and we are now concentrating on new on-road lanes and linkages.
