Shimmy bike routes
Shimmy bike routes follow quiet back streets and are designated by signs and bike symbols, making it 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.
