Riding a bike is one of the best ways to enjoy the outdoors in Clarence. Cycling is a sociable activity enjoyed by people of all ages which enhances health and well-being and is environmentally-friendly.
Bike riders have the choice of a number of multi-use paths that offer scenic and comfortable cycling opportunities.
The Clarence Foreshore Trail is the most popular cycling trail in Clarence. Several sections between Geilston Bay and Tranmere have a hard, sealed surface and are suitable for all types of bicycles.
There are several shorter pathways dotted around the municipality which are suitable for short bike rides. See Multi-use Paths & Cycleways for a list and description.
When using paths, keep left and give way to pedestrians. Ring your bell or call out 'passing' to alert walkers to your presence when overtaking.
In 2007 Clarence City Council approved the Clarence Bicycle Strategy Action Plan (2016 kb) to enhance cycling infrastructure in Clarence. This includes on-road commuter routes.
