Cycling is enjoyed by people of all ages. Cycling is becoming increasingly popular for commuting as well as for recreation. It is cheaper than driving, causes less pollution and can be quicker for short trips, especially in peak hour.
Gold Coast City Council has incorporated on road and off road bikeways into the city’s town planning guidelines. More than 600 kilometres of bikeways now link neighbourhoods, schools, parks, and interconnect with major transit routes.
