Ballina goes European with the recent completion of the Ballina shire bike plan that sets out how bike paths, facilities and safety will be improved throughout the shire.

Ballina Shire is already a top spot to cycle but the implementation of this Bike Plan will help our community be healthier, more active and provide a more liveable neighbourhood,’ said road safety officer, Helen Carpenter.

‘This plan has shown who, where, when and why people are cycling in Ballina shire. But the plan is more than maps and paths; it’s also about improving safety and encouraging everyone to get on their bikes more often.’

The bike plan will help integrate cycling as an active transport option into the existing transport network. It will also provide a coordinated approach to delivering bicycle infrastructure and education across the shire.
