Making it safer and easier to ride a bike – St Peters to Tempe (Local Route 7)

Riding a bicycle is a fantastic way to get around, keep fit and save money. It also helps reduce car use and benefits the environment. Council is improving bicycle routes across the inner west to encourage more people to make everyday trips by bike. These improvements will make it safer, more convenient and enjoyable for people of all ages and abilities to ride a bike.

With support from the NSW Government, Council is proposing to improve the route between St Peters station and the Cooks River at Tempe. This would connect people to:

  • local destinations, such as shops, schools, parks and train stations
  • other bicycle routes for further away destinations including Newtown and Sydney CBD.
