Debut Test Canberra Routes
Canberra's Best Bike Rides
Lake Burley Griffin Loop + Mt Ainslie
Look no further if you want a nice 50km ride that provides a great introduction to all things Canberra.
This route is mostly flat and takes you through city and bush, past cows and Kangaroos. You will encounter the major National Capital landmarks; National Gallery of Australia, High Court, Australian National University and Yarralumla, the Governor Generals Canberra residence.
If you wish to add some hills, just take a detour up Mt Ainslie for a spectacular view of Walter Burley Griffins organic design for the bush capital.
Mount Stromlo National Park was thrust onto the international cycling scene when it hosted the 2009 Mountain Bike World Championships and is a must do for all cyclists visiting Canberra
Few cities could boast such a spectacular cycling destination so close to the city centre. We've added a nice little spin around the western shores of Lake Burley Griffin as you make your way back to the city.
Lakes George and Burley Griffin
If you feel like seeing some of Canberra's scenic landmarks and then burying your head for for the next 70kms this route is made for you.
Start with a pleasant spin around Lake Burley Griffin, check off the National Gallery, High Court, Governor Generals residence etc and then power down as you ride uninterrupted all the way out to Lake George. We've limited the route to 120km but it is very easy to continue past our point of return. Its flat, its safe, and its very very beautiful riding along the mysterious 'Lake' George (where did all the water go?).
