ROAD RIDE: Hills Shire Council Bike Paths Network
Hills Council compiled a comprehensive plan for road cycling in 2009. In 2018, they continue to deliver on it. With major developments like North Kellyville along Cattai Creek, thousands of new homes being built throughout the Hills. Residents and businesses need alternative, efficient transport options to events, shopping centres, schools, work and transit hubs. KELLYVILLE-CASTLE HILL: Safe cycle paths, completely separated from congested Showground and Windsor Roads, have been completed- delivering cycle commuters straight into the heart of Castle Hill, Norwest & Victoria Rd. business parks. (Ironically, the safest, quickest way into Norwest business centre on a bicycle is currently a short cut straight past the front door of Hills Council chambers and out onto Columbia Way).
BELLA VISTA FARM: 10km out & back
For recreation and major community events, Bella Vista Farm can be easily and quickly accessed on a bicycle, via the subway under Norwest Boulevard.
The path to this subway currently goes from the heart of Mac Mansionland in Brighton Drive, up past
Hilltop Park and then down into the subway off Waterfall
Crescent . Around Bella Vista Farm there is a short, but very scenic hilltop path to enjoy, with lovely views west and the historic farm homestead to admire. The farm path takes you to Bella Vista Oval and into labyrinthine, beige suburbia.
SMALLS CREEK TO WINDSOR VIA ROUSE HILL: 24km or 48km
Start at Wrights Road Community Centre and explore the very pretty, shared bushland pathway that runs parallel to Smalls Creek. Unfortunately, it is as yet unmarked for navigation, so
