Change the way you move. Ride a bicycle to your next destination for fun, fitness and smart transport.

The Gold Coast has approximately 1000 kilometres of bikeways that link neighbourhoods, schools and parks, and interconnect with major transit routes. Cycling is becoming increasingly popular for commuting and recreation. It is cheaper than driving, causes less pollution and can be quicker for short trips, especially in peak hour.

Benefits of cycling

Cycling is a cost effective and healthy way to get around our city. Improve your fitness and help reduce congestion on our roads.

Free cycling workshops

The City offers a series of free workshops to help you get on your bike and enjoy the many benefits that cycling provides. These workshops will also cover tips to make you a safer road user. The City is also hosting cycling workshops in preparation for the GC2018 Commonwealth Games, Get Set to cycle during the Games.

Cycling events

City of Gold Coast holds many great cycling events throughout the year, including Get Set to cycle during the Games, the annual Bike Week, and Ride 2 Work Day.

Cycling safety

Beginners and experienced cyclists alike can feel exposed or vulnerable in the road environment. Riding confidently, courteously, and proactively scanning and sharing the road will improve your safety.

Bike sheds

There are a number of bike sheds available for you to use along the light rail (G:link). They provide a protected place to park your bike while you make the most of Gold Coast public transport on your way to work, school, shopping or just getting out and about.
