Bike riding

Logan residents are becoming more active, using both riding and walking for short trips and exercise. 

Riding a bike is an important mode of transport that benefits our own personal health and the environmental sustainability of our city. 

Our Integrated Local Transport Plan (ILTP) identifies active transport as an important way to travel in the future. 

The ILTP contains our vision to advance active transport over the next 20 years. For more information, please see Way2Go: Connecting Logan

Several actions have been identified that we will implement to make riding more appealing.

The information can help you change some car trips to walking adventures, bicycle journeys and more!

Overview of bike riding infrastructure

We have incorporated on-road and off-road bikeways into the city’s planning scheme. 

We already have 1260 kilometres of bikeways and pathways linking essential locations like:

  • neighbourhoods
  • schools
  • parks
  • bus and railway stations. 

We deliver infrastructure on a prioritised basis annually and where possible, we make sure new developments have infrastructure for bike riders and pedestrians.

Many residents are already using footpaths, shared paths and on-road bike lanes for fitness and health. Recent studies show that riding a bike is one of the top choices when it comes to exercising.

For more information, please see Active Logan.

Take a look and experience what it’s like to ride the 12km stretch of the Veloway 1 virtual tour (V1) from South Brisbane to MacGregor.

The Veloway 1 provides a safe route for people to ride bikes and personal mobility devices like e-scooters between the Brisbane CBD and Brisbane's southside.

This 20 kilometre, 3 metre wide bikeway runs along the Pacific Motorway from South Brisbane and Slacks Creek.
