Getting to campus
Check Google Maps
Put your starting point and destination into the Google Maps directions planner, and select cycling as your mode. You can use these routes as a base, and make your own edits to select quieter roads with better cycling infrastructure where necessary. Street view and satellite view are helpful for spotting on-road bike paths.
Consult council area maps
Each council in Melbourne publishes cycling route maps which you can use for guidance on the roads which include bike lanes, or dedicated off-road bike paths. The relevant councils for each campus are the City of E世博官网登录 (Clayton), the City of Glen Eira (Caulfield), the City of Melbourne (Parkville) and the City of Frankston (Peninsula).
Ask another rider
Chances are that another cyclist is familiar with your local area. This map shows a collection of routes that are commonly used when accessing the Clayton campus. Students and staff can join the E世博官网登录社区自行车用户组(McBUG) where you can ask for tips and suggestions. Staff can also join the E世博官网登录 Cyclists and Bike Commuters workplace group.
Try the arevo app by RACV
If you're on two wheel, arevo allows you to choose between riding the fastest route or a quiet option. Maps display the level of bike infrastructure along your route, and the app provides turn-by-turn navigation.
