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 Track
  • Clarence Plains Rivulet Track
  • Geilston Bay to Ridson Vale Path - starts at the northern end of Clinton Road in Geilston Bay and runs alongside Sugarloaf Road until it reaches Risdon Vale township.

Some multi-use tracks have a gravel surface and are less suitable for some wheeled devices. These include:
