Using Bicycles in Blacktown
Bike paths and Cycleways
Riding a bike is a great way to keep fit, enjoy the great outdoors and see many of the sights around the local area. Blacktown City Council is dedicated to providing a network of off-road cycling tracks and making on-road cycling safer. These cycleways help our residents enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle.
When cycling, remember to wear a helmet, give way to pedestrians and obey the road rules.
For your own safety, your bike should be fitted with a bell or warning device; and white front and red rear end reflectors. At night, you must use a headlight and tail light, and wear reflective clothing.
The Blacktown Bike Plan has been created to help cyclists move around the area. Download a copy here Blacktown Bike Plan 2016
