Lake Macquarie has an extensive and expanding network of off-road shared pathways providing opportunities for recreational cycling, jogging and walking.

Council is committed to improving cycleways across the City and has implemented a cycling strategy to ensure this occurs.

For a full list of shared pathways, cycleways and location maps within Lake Macquarie, have a look at our Shared Pathway Guide.

Cycling Strategy 2021

In 2011, Council started the preparation of a new 10-year strategy to support greater levels of participation in cycling.

The strategy was finalised in 2012 and broken up into nine parts.

The Life Cycle

As the popularity of cycling for transport and pleasure has grown over the past decade in the City, we initiated The Life Cycle campaign and program to make people see the cyclist, the person - not just the bike. Follow our Facebook page for regular updates.
