Where to ride

Find out where you can ride, with handy maps, shared bike paths and shimmy bike routes in Darebin.

TravelSmart Maps

Our TravelSmart Map shows on-road bike lanes, off-road riding trails and safe bike-riding routes, as well as walking paths, public toilets, water fountains and public transport information, including tram and train maps.

You can collect a printed and folded, pocket-sized copy from one of our Customer Service Centres or Libraries.

If you're after a TravelSmart Map for other parts of Melbourne and Victoria, see the VicRoads website.

Shared Paths

We have multi-user paths for people of all ages and paces including pedestrians, wheelchair users, joggers, children on scooters or roller-skates, families with prams and dog walkers.

Shimmy Bike Routes

With directional signage, road markings and maps, it's easy to shimmy your way through Darebin's back streets and avoid the main roads. We have a map of the new Great Western Shimmy route, as well as a map of our Other Shimmy routes. You can view all of Darebin’s shimmy routes together in this Google map.
