Off-road cycling in Brisbane

children mountain biking

Brisbane City Council is committed to creating a clean and green Brisbane that is liveable and sustainable for future generations. As part of this commitment, Council is creating a city-wide plan to provide off-road* cycling facilities for children, adults, and families within bushland reserves and parks.

The plan will review bushland reserves across the city for off-road cycling facilities with the priority of conserving the natural environment and identifying suitable low impact locations such as existing fire trails and non-vegetated areas.

The Brisbane Off-Road* Cycling Plan will focus on:

  • getting more people outdoors into nature, having fun and getting fit and healthy
  • identifying locations across the city for off-road cycling facilities that better protect the natural habitat
  • providing an accessible network of safe off-road cycling facilities in parks and bushland reserves.

*Off-road cycling refers to cycling facilities other than roads and designated bike paths. This can include a range of mountain bike riding, gravel riding, cyclocross and riding on tracks, pump tracks, skills tracks, and dirt jumps.

Brisbane residents and visitors enjoy using our natural reserves and parks for recreation and leisure. Council is inviting feedback from the community to understand current off-road cycle usage across Brisbane and ideas about planning future facilities.

The community survey and mapping tools are now closed for consultation and results will be analysed.
