Cycling

With a thriving bike culture and a dizzying mix of bike-friendly terrain, the best way to see Victoria is on two wheels. See the city sights on a Melbourne Bike Share bike, explore the network of trails and tracks linking regional Victorian towns, or take it up a notch with downhill mountain biking and road racing.

City cycling
Designated bike lanes across the city make riding an easy and safe experience for locals and travelers alike. Rent a Bike Share bike to travel around the CBD or cruise the outer suburbs via the Capital City Trail, Williamstown Path or Bay Trail.

Regional riding
Calling all adventure riders! Try a spot of road riding along the Great Ocean Road, get dirty with a mountain bike ride through the Goldfields Track, or tackle the High Country's notorious 'Dirty Dozen'.

Alternatively, take it easy and follow a regional rail trail like the Great Victorian Rail Trail, stopping by cellar doors and farm gates to sample the gourmet local produce. Take a self-guided tour or opt for a fully supported tour to make sure your ride goes smoothly.

Safety first
Be sure to follow the road rules and wear bright clothing when cycling. Helmets are compulsory, and night riders must affix a light to their bikes and wear reflective clothing.
