Cycling to get around
The City of Stirling has an extensive network of shared paths, on-road bike lanes, and quiet residential streets ideal for cycling, which makes getting around by bike as easy and convenient as getting around by car.
Shared paths have been built to accommodate both cyclists and pedestrians. They are ideal for making short, local trips and for riding at slow speeds. Shared paths which run through parks in the City of Stirling are subject to a 10km/hr speed limit.
Perth Bicycle Network routes are mainly on road (bike lanes and quiet residential streets) and are suitable for faster riding and riding longer distances.
Noticed a hazard or problem as you have been riding around? Let us know and we will try and get it fixed.
No bike parking at your favourite destinations? Let us know and we will try and get some installed.
When riding, please remember that bicycles are treated as vehicles under the law and subject to the same road rules as cars. Please obey all traffic signals, and give way to pedestrians when using shared paths.

Walking for local trips
Nipping down to the deli for some groceries?
Swap your car keys for a re-usuable shopping bag and walk there instead! You will feel happy and re-energised after some gentle exercise in the fresh air.
Walking to make local trips is one of the easiest ways to keep healthy and active without really trying. It often takes just as long to walk to your destination as it does to drive there and hunt for parking, so why not choose to improve your health and leave the car at home?
