It’s the final issue of our Riding To Brisbane CBD blog series!
To finish off, we’ll be looking at how those located in Brisbane’s western suburbs can get to the city.
Depending what side of the river you are coming from, you’ll be able to choose the most convenient route for you. And remember, you’re allowed to take your bike on the City Cat Ferries, which is a great way to break up your commute.
Let’s get into it…
Inner West Bikeway
The main western bikeway in Brisbane is the Inner West to City Centre Bikeway.
This goes along the Centenary Highway near Kenmore, follows it along, past Indooroopilly and Toowong before linking up to the bikeway that travels along the Brisbane River, along Coronation Drive and straight to Brisbane CBD.
For those with the stamina to tackle the Mt Coot-tha summit climb by bike, the sunrise views are stunning; or you might like to explore the Mt Coot-tha Botanical gardens for a more relaxed style.
On The Other Side Of The River?
If you are slightly further west from Kenmore, the Darra to Fig Tree Pocket links nicely up to the Inner West Bikeway and has plenty of options for starting points.
Whether you are nearest to Seventeen Mile Rocks, Darra, Mount Ommaney and Jindalee, you can jump on to the bikeway, cruise on across the river and link up to the Inner West Bikeway.
You’ll be in the city in no time!
Close To UQ?
If you are located close to the University of Queensland, you can take the backstreets to ride through the university. From there, cross the Eleanor Schonell Bridge (better known as the Green Bridge) near UQ Lakes to Dutton Park.
From there, you can ride using the bike lane on Annerley Road to either connect up with the Veloway One, Southbank Bikeway or Kangaroo Point Bikeway to get across into the CBD.
For Those On The South-West
Located in Rocklea or Salisbury? Getting to the city has never been easier.
The Salisbury Bikeway includes Granard Road, Riawena Road, and Kessels Road. This links easily up to the Veloway One Bikeway at Upper Mount Gravatt for a smooth ride into the city.
Working In The City?
If you are working in the city, you’ll need somewhere to store your bike.
At cycle2city, our fully-staffed facilities have everything you need to freshen up before work. Regardless of if you are working during the day or starting in the evening, you’ll have access to our facilities 24/7.
Securely store your bike, have a shower and even put your bike in for a service at the onsite workshop… it’ll be safe and good as new for your ride home!
