Riding in your local area

The flat surrounds, connected cycle paths and quiet local streets of Greater Parramatta make it the perfect place to get around by bike.  Great local trips include the 20km of connected off road paths along the Parramatta River from Parramatta Park to Olympic Park, or extensive paths to the south-west and north-west of the city. Head to Discover Parramatta for the best of Parramatta and what is on this spring!

Use the RMS Cycleway website to plan your route, and take your bike on a train or River Cat to make your journey even easier. 

Local rides for new cyclists

Ride along dedicated paths out to Prospect Reservoir via the beautiful Prospect Creek Cycleway or Pipeline Cycleway. 

Feeling adventurous? Go on a round trip and do both! Start at either Guildford or Fairfield Train Stations and follow the paths to the west. Type “RMS Cycleway Finder” into your preferred search engine for more detailed maps.


The Parramatta Valley Cycleway contains over 20km of connected paths and boardwalks along the Parramatta River, stretching from Parramatta Park to Sydney Olympic Park. Jump on at any point along the River and explore the natural beauty of the area.  The latest maps can be found at www.cityofparramatta.nsw.gov.au/cycling or at Council’s Heritage Centre.

I already cycle

The T-Way cycleway takes you all the way out to Windsor from Westmead, but many people jump onto the M2/M7 path through Western Sydney Parklands. See the map and learn more at roam.com.au

If you are feeling adventurous, ride from Parramatta to Sydney Airport via the M4 Cycleway, Necropolis Drive in Rookwood and the Cooks River Cycleway. Find more routes here.
