North Brisbane Bikeways. Classic EBike Rides For All.

North Brisbane EBike Rides | Electric Bikes Brisbane

North Brisbane, by which we mean on the northern side of the Brisbane River, has a great network of ever-expanding bikeways.

Here are three rides provided by our Ride.Share.Win entrants that offer easy, fun routes that the whole family can enjoy to longer, more challenging loops that link up numerous bikeways. Plus we have added in an extra, one of our Owners Club 'Adventure' ride routes, for those who like to get some dirt under their tires and enjoy our bushland areas.

A Classic! Kedron Brook Bikeway to Boondall Wetlands via Nudgee Beach

North Brisbane EBike Rides | Electric Bikes Brisbane

Start point: Grinstead Park, Shand St, Alderley

End Point: Grinstead Park (see the full route on Strava here)

Distance: 26km one way

Surface: Paved bikeways

Description (thanks to Tim):  

Grinstead Park in Alderley is a popular starting point with convenient parking. From here head east following Royal Parade to Mornington Street where you enter Kedron Brook Bikeway (KBB) which takes you just about all the way to Nudgee Beach. 

The KBB is a smooth, wide and flat dedicated bike way. It is a fun, safe ride for everyone from soloists, couples to families in cargo bikes or with multiple bikes.

The route gently winds around the natural watercourse with several bridge crossings through picturesque parks and past sports ovals. It is almost entirely without any traffic, a very quiet, safe and scenic ride.

Once past Toombul Shopping Centre then continue onto the Jim Soorley section of KBB. When you get to Nudgee Road turn right. It’s just a short ride to Nudgee Beach. Alternatively if you don’t wish to ride up to Nudgee beach keep an eye out for the turn left off Nudgee Road to the Boondall Wetlands via the boardwalk.

This is a very pretty section that takes you directly to the Wetlands Visitors Centre, the turnaround point. Return the same way, or via the Centenary Bikeway which follows the Gateway Arterial. Alternatively you can also continue onto Sandgate for a much longer ride.

Owners Club 'Adventure' Ride: Bunyaville to Bellbird Grove via Cabbage Tree Creek

North Brisbane EBike Rides | Electric Bikes Brisbane

Start point: Kakowan Koffee, James Drysdale Reserve, 2 Pine Hills Dv, Bunya

End Point: Kakowan Koffee, James Drysdale Reserve, Bunya (see the full route on Strava here)

Distance: 41km (860m climbing)

Surface: Paved bikeways/ road/ gravel, sometimes rough + options for single track

Description: This is a ride for the more adventurous at heart, taking in a mix of terrain and surfaces along the way. We parked at James Drysdale sports ground to take advantage of the nearby Kakowan Koffee shop before (and after!) the ride. 

Starting at the high point with a gravel lap around part of Bunyaville Conservation Park it takes you southwest via Cabbage Tree Creek bikeway. You will cross two ridgelines passing through Samford Conservation Park (Ironbark) bush reserve to Bellbird Grove in D'Aguilar National Park, at the foot of Camp Mountain.

It is a very picturesque ride with stunning views on occasion; also a mix of Ferny Grove and Ferny Hills suburban streets as well as rural roads in Samford Valley.  With the myriad of mountain bike trails in Bunyaville and Ironbark you can make this ride as adventurous as you want.
