There’s plenty of bike paths in and around Hume to explore, like:
Enjoy scenic views of this 17km point-to-point bike trail. Perfect for all skill levels, the trail mostly runs parallel to the Hume Freeway and is easy to follow. Start at the corner of Amaroo Road and Hume Highway, Craigieburn (opposite Bunnings Warehouse) and follow the big path towards Thomastown.
Running through many of Melbourne’s northern suburbs is the M80 Trail (also known as the Western Ring Road Trail). As the name suggests, the bike path runs parallel to the Ring Road. If you are in Hume, it’s best to enter from Jack Roper Reserve in Broadmeadows, or near Jacana Train Station. You can head in either direction along the bike path, which branches out in all kinds of paths to explore.
Moonee Ponds Creek Trail
Connecting the M80 trail is Moonee Ponds Creek Trail, a 19km point-to-point path that features a few more hills for those wanting something a bit more challenging. Start the trail in Westmeadows (near the Fawkner Street Bridge) and pedal your way south towards the inner Melbourne suburbs.
Remember: when riding past people on the footpath, leave space and warm before approaching with your bike’s bell.
