The Ginninderry estate development has some of the best active travel infrastructure in Canberra. They did not invent it but rather were the first to implement the ACT Standards. It can be done.
Ride Dunlop for pretty sunset views across the ACT / NSW border and Dunlop Grasslands. Dunlop is in the far west of Belconnen on the ACT/NSW border. Where the houses stop the view over farmland starts. A quiet area with some good paths.
The old bike path through the Ginninderra Creek valley was built long ago but still one of the best rides in the ACT. Ride from the end of the Belconnen Bikeway to the Macgregor along the Ginninderra Creek. This valley is very pretty and highly recommended.
