Brisbane has an extensive and growing network of bikeways. Through the Better Bikeways 4 Brisbane program, Brisbane City Council is investing $100 million between July 2016 and 2020 on bikeways to improve access to local destinations and the city centre. The Lord Mayor’s signature bikeway projects include:
Before riding, check the temporary bikeway and shared pathway closures that may affect your journey.
Whether you want to take the kids out, explore a bit of Brisbane or get some training in, there will be a ride to try for you.
Find out about bike parking, end of trip facilities, and how to connect your bike ride with public transport.

There are a number of recently completed bikeway projects across Brisbane’s bikeway network over the 2017/18 financial year.
Council is installing real-time bikeway counters on busy cycle routes and shared pathways around the city. The devices will track the number of cyclists, and in some cases pedestrians, via infrared sensors and an inductive loop in the bikeway or footpath. The counts are displayed on bikeways via electronic display boards and signs. In November 2017, bikeway counters were installed on the Bicentennial Bikeway, Milton (cyclist and pedestrian counter) and on the southern side of the Go Between Bridge (cyclist counter). Further counters will be installed in late 2018 as a part of the Woollongabba Bikeway and Kangaroo Point Bikeway projects.
On 12 October the Bicentennial Bikeway counter hit one million trips for 2018. That’s a million journeys not made by car on Coronation Drive.
Brisbane is part of a global community with these installations, with cities across the world having adopted a similar approach. View bike counts from Brisbane and around the world.
