To continue with all things fitness related, let’s take a look at Canberra’s best bike path for Best of Canberra this week.
This town is the cycling capital of the nation with a great network of cycle paths and off-road trails. Whether it is recreational or used as a mode of transport, Canberrans love their cycling!
You probably have a few favourite trails, but if you’re new to Canberra or to cycling, you may be looking for ideas for where to head.
Pedal Power ACT includes some useful links to bike path maps of Canberra and the region, including the ACT Government’s Canberra and Queanbeyan Cycling and Walking map, here.
You can also find bike trails by scanning through those used regularly by cyclists using apps like Map My Ride (see a selection of most-used routes here).
There’s even a book, Cycling around Canberra by Bruce Ashley, that features suggested routes. It was published in 2011 but Ashley publishes updates on his website here.
Let me know your favourite track to turn the legs over in the comments below. I’ll visit the two most popular bike paths and decide the verdict in next week’s article.
