Beautiful Bike Ride
Capital City Trail7
Why locals love it
Melbourne is just about the only city in Australia where the locals have taken up cycling. We're a pretty flat city, and not too hot, which makes it easy to commute on two wheels. But when you'd rather go for a leisurely bike ride, the Capital City Trail is a great way to circumnavigate the city.
Why you should visit it
Running a ring around the city that takes in North Fitzroy, Brunswick, the Zoo, the Yarra, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Richmond, this bike trail captures some of Melbourne's most picturesque sights. Stop off a few times along the way for coffee and sight-seeing, or do the whole loop in one go!
If you won't be staying long in town, get one of Melbourne's blue bikes - you can borrow them out of stands all around the city.
