Bicycles provide an accessible, low cost, non-polluting and healthy mode of travel. The City of South Perth has a network of bicycle routes, recreational paths and resources for cyclists to use.
With the City’s proximity to the river, Perth CBD, Curtin University and major transport hubs we have a natural amenity for an integrated cycle network.
As our population continues to grow, encouraging more people to cycle is an important part of the solution to the transport challenges that the City and wider community face. Creating a functional network through transport planning and engineering is a priority outlined in the City’s Bike Plan. It is the City’s goal to provide an extensive network of bicycle routes to facilitate a viable alternative mode of transport.
Increased use of bicycles in the City can help to reduce road congestion, oil use, air and water pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. Bike use is a great way to improve community health, exercise levels, enhance general mobility and contribute to tourism.
The Department of Transport website has lots of cycling information and useful resources for people who commute by bike or wish to explore Perth on two wheels.
