Flemington Road bike path is finished

The off-road bike path bypassing Mitchell on the Flemington Road has now been completed and opened. It is worth celebrating. The new path closes a missing link and opens interesting possibilities in the north. More about that in the next post. Flemington Road was introduced here.

History of the Flemington Road bike path

There was an off-road bike path bypassing Mitchell on the Flemington Road. It was bulldozed to widen Flemington Road for the light rail. Unfortunately, the ACT Government forgot to replace it. After complaints, the ACT Government pledged to rebuild this missing link. It is still under construction.

Dickson Majura Gungahlin loop

A very pretty ride from Belconnen to Majura Pines, returning via Gungahlin.

Figure 1: Horse Park Drive bike path, heading towards Gungahlin

Route: This is probably the most direct route from Belconnen to Majura Pines. To keep things interesting, the return is via Majura Parkway and Horse Park Drive bike paths, which has everything going for it except for the hill. Return from Horse Park Drive past Well Station, Well Station Drive and Gungahlin Drive bike paths.
