Perth Cycling

Perth hotels

With the constant sunny skies and the good network of cycling paths, I found Perth lended itself very well to both the recreational and the more serious cyclist. There are numerous good cycle paths, many of which stretch along the coast so you get a lovely seas view while you're peddling along! There are also plenty of decent café's and pitstops along the way so you can rest for lunch or just a quick refreshment.

The main Perth beach suburbs like Cottesloe are some of the best bits to cycle through and you can pick up a free cycle map which tells you good cycling routes from any good bike shop or hire shop.

If you want to experience a mix of the city and the beach cycle routes then the City to Sea "Greenway" is a joint footpath and cycle route through parks and recreational areas from the central business district and out to the sea. This ride will take about 45 minutes to complete at a leisurely pace and is just over ten kilometres in length .

I wanted to cycle slightly further afield than Perth and I was told about the edge of the Darling Ranges cycle route by the bike hire man. I ended up "wimping" out and just did one section along the Mundaring Weir Rd near to Hacketts Gully. This was a nice route that started off at the Mundaring Weir itself, although I would be inclined to do it in reverse next time and end at the Mundaring Weir.

There are loads of different routes in the hills and it certainly is great exercise, I picked up the leaflet from the bike hire shop and again it was free. What a steal!
