Cycling in Council Parks and Reserves

There are limited opportunities for off-road cycling on Council reserve land. Silverstream Reserve near Clarkville is currently under development.

Efforts are being made to add or improve facilities at suitable sites. Club members or other keen cyclists wishing to express an interest in developing track facilities, and/or organising an event, are welcome to contact the Green Space Unit of the Council
