Where to ride or walk

Maps and guides for bike-friendly 'Shimmy' routes and shared paths in Darebin.

TravelSmart Maps

Our new TravelSmart Map 2022 shows on-road bike lanes, off-road riding trails and safe bike-riding routes, as well as walking paths, public toilets and public transport information, including tram and train maps.

You can pick up a folded, pocket sized map from one of our customer service centres, libraries or a local bike shop

The best way to view this map is using a hard copy. However, you can also download a copy below. Please note this is a large file that may take a long time to load. For more mobile friendly maps, check out the 'useful resources' section below.

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

  • Darebin Bicycle User Group - a local group that campaigns for better cycling conditions and organises rides to suit cyclists of all abilities.
