Our favourite path for cycling & wheelchair cruises
Do you love cycling? Cruising on flat paths in your wheelchair?
If you enjoy cycling then a lovely bike path to take from 100 Hitchcock (red dot on the map below) is along the Barwon River. We normally cut through the park at the top of Hitchcock Avenue, then ride to the bend in Carr street. From there is a reasonable distance of flat, safe riding. Perfectly suited for kids too. The path follows the meandering river, through nature reserve and farmland. Its so peaceful and a hidden treasure mostly only the locals know about
For the more serious cyclists amongst you then the road that follows along the thirteenth beach is the place to ride. A gentle undulating road that has glimpses of the surf. The traffic is expecting cyclists on the road so is usually courteous. Ride to the windmill and back or do the big loop, after getting to the windmill turn right and head up to Bluestone School Road and then back along Barwon Heads Road into town.
