An alternate route on gravel when common routes are unavailable. Our options are getting limited. Butters Bridge and Black Mountain Peninsula are closed. Cycling must go on. Try a Arboretum and Black Mountain gravel ride instead of the LBG CBR Cycle Route.

The Molonglo Valley has stumbled over Federal environment law. Finally, the hard work is done. The Molonglo Valley will be two developments on either side of the Molonglo. Crossing the valley is difficult, not least for the cyclist.
Conservative blood flows through Canberra’s veins, and it is the reason why we have areas to ride recreationally. The story of the National Capital Authority.
Black Mountain forest, close to Civic, is rarely explored. The north and west slopes of the mountain offer excellent cycling on formed vehicle trails. Beautiful walking trails crisscross the mountain.
Aranda hill is a critical cycling link in Canberra. Everything south of Belconnen is best reached over Aranda hill. The official name for this Active Travel Route is “CBR Cycle Route C5 Belconnen – Tuggeranong via Weston Creek”. The vast majority of this route was built before 1988.
