Multi-use Paths and Cycleways
Since multi-use paths are utilised by a range of people using bicycles, prams, skateboards, scooters, roller blades and wheelchairs, there are a few rules of etiquette to help you use the paths safely and courteously.
- Keep left unless overtaking (overtake on the right)
- Ride or skate at an appropriate speed - keep it at running pace or below (about 20-25km/h maximum)
- Wheeled traffic gives way to foot traffic
- Ring your bell gently, call 'Passing' and slow when passing others
- Move off the path if stopped.
- Dogs are permitted on multi-use paths and cycleways but must be on a lead and under control at all times.
Pathways which have a hard, sealed surface are suitable for most wheeled devices. These include:
- Clarence Foreshore Trail
- Howrah to Rokeby Cycleway
- Risdon Brook Dam Circuit
- Clarence Plains Rivulet Track
