Learning to Ride a Bike in Brisbane

by Sally Foster (follow)
Here are some of the best places to practice bike skills

Brisbane is an outdoor city and part of being outside and active, is riding a bike. Not everyone in Brisbane lives in a street or suburb where there is ample opportunity to teach your kids to ride a bike and practice in a 'wheely' friendly environment.

So here are some places where your kids can learn to ride a bike in Brisbane, as recommended by the other Brisbane Mums. If you know of any others, please let us know!

Kedron Brook Trail

Stretching for almost 20kms from Nundah to Mitchelton, the trail lets you ride passed creeks, parks and picnic facilities. The trail is perfectly designed to be shared by both pedestrians and cyclists, with carefully signposted paths and safe from traffic. You can find out more about the path here.

Clontarf to Redcliffe

Park the car at Pelican Park at Clontarf and ride along the seaside and take in the bay breezes. It is a 13km path with cafes and playgrounds along the way.

If you are looking for more options along the bay, you can also park at Decker Park at Brighton and ride along the path all the way to the Shorncliffe Pier.

Wynnum and Manly Foreshore

A 6km ride along the foreshore, taking in the pristine views with ample opportunities for stops along the way. You can even pack your swimmers and go for a dip in the lagoon. You can find out more about this path here.

Boondal Wetlands

This is where I learned to ride my bike as a kid! Between Nudgee and Shorncliffe, the wetlands is quiet, with flat paths and beautiful scenery. You can find out more about this trail here.

Other Options

If you are looking for a beginner mountain bike expedition, then try out the Fernvale to Ipswich section of the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. As well as being scenic, this approx. 25km section of the trail is a bit easier than the rest and is completely off road.

If you are looking for a great BMX Track to practice on then head to the Bracken Ridge BMX Track. It is a professional BMX bike track at Bracken Ridge, featuring competition grade facilities which are suitable for all ages and abilities. You can find out more here.
