Park and Pedal - Black Mountain (Caswell Drive) to City

Park and Pedal - Black Mountain (Caswell Drive) to City

One of the most underused carparks on the western side of Black Mountain is located adjacent to Caswell drive. It has numerous carparks and is well located to go to Belconnen, Gunghalin, Woden or the City! The ride into the city is almost solely on dedicated bike paths. From the carpark, you pass under Glenlock interchange, cross Lady Denman Drive and then left onto the dedicated bike path that takes you along the foreshore of Lake Burely Griffin, all the way to the City. This is a very scenic, flat and enjoyable way to work!

Ride Considerations

When riding a bike you should always be aware of the environment around you and the status of the path and route. Caution is required and you should not rely on the information on this web page to protect your safety. Our information is to help guide you on the direction - but it does not contain a comprehensive listing of all the safety issues you may face.

In Canberra, there are animals such as kangaroos that sometimes wander onto the track including kangaroos and branches and loose matter such as sticks, rocks, and soil. Likewise, you should be vigilant at all intersections. If you need to travel on the road, please be aware of all your surroundings including people potentially opening doors in front of you and cars approaching intersections. Defensive riding is recommended at all times.
