Where we cycle to from home

The destinations we cycle to, not surprisingly, depends on where we live. The 2017 ACT Household Travel Survey breaks down the trips depending on the “region” of origin (district). The most likely destination is always the same district (locally). Beyond that, the charts below tell the story.

The 2017 ACT Household Travel Survey has been introduced and key facts discussed elsewhere on canberra.bike.

North Canberra

Those living in North Canberra cycle to Belconnen and South Canberra mostly, but Gungahlin and Weston Creek as well.

Weston Creek

Those living in Weston Creek cycle to “outside the study area”, and north to North Canberra and Belconnen mostly. This is the only group that cycle “outside the study area”, whatever that might mean.

South Canberra

Those living in South Canberra cycle to North Canberra and, to a lesser extent, Tuggeranong or Belconnen. That North Canberra is a popular destination is no surprise, but that cycling to Tuggeranong is more common than Belconnen or Woden Valley is.

Queanbeyan

Those living in Queanbeyan cycle only in Queanbeyan. The implication here is that those living in Queanbeyan take public transport or drive to the ACT.
