Recreational cycling & mountain biking

For the recreational cyclist, Toowoomba has over 70 km of pathways, a number of designated mountain bike trails and a network of roads that can be used by the more experienced cyclist. We run a number of bike ride events each year with assistance from local cycling clubs and groups.

 

Suggested cycling routes

While there is an infinite number of options for city, country and even bush riding, below we have highlighted a few cycling routes for riders of various abilities.

Recreational / family rides on roads and paths

These routes are typically on streets with less traffic, shared pathways and through parks. In many locations, you can choose between riding on the road or using paths. Routes may not be desirable for commuter and more experienced cyclists who may prefer more direct routes. If you have a favourite route in your area we'd love to hear from you - contact us by email.
