Council provides an extensive walking and cycling network consisting of on-road bike lanes and off-road shared pathways. Council’s network is continually growing.
Who can use shared pathways?
All of Moreton Bay region’s bikeways and shared pathways may be used by:
- Rollerskaters, rollerbladers, skateboards, foot scooters

Tips for using shared pathways
Shared pathways should be safe and enjoyable to use. When using a shared pathway:
- Be considerate to others
- Keep left where possible
- Ride or walk in a predictable manner
- If the pathway is crowded, walk in single file and cyclists should slow down
- Cyclists need to slow down and use your bell when passing
- Ride at a speed appropriate to the environment
- Be alert so you are ready for the unexpected
