Walking and cycling get you where you need to go while keeping fit and enjoying the outdoors. Walking is the most popular form of recreational activity for Victorians, and provides environmental, health and social benefits. Cycling is a great way to keep fit, save money and get around without contributing to global warming. Whitehorse is blessed with some fantastic walking tracks and bike routes. Council’s Walking and Wheeling Guide (2.77MB) highlights some of the wonderful parks and walking tracks within the municipality. The guide includes information on required levels of fitness, disability access, general facilities, and lists the location of some of the BMX tracks, mountain bike tracks, skate parks and playgrounds in Whitehorse.

So grab what you need – whether it be walking boots, your bike, your wheelchair or your family, friends or dog – and discover Whitehorse's great outdoors.
National Ride2Work Day is Australia’s largest celebration of commuter riding. Held annually in October, the day celebrates the benefits of riding to work and brings together the communities that support it.
The main objective of the day is to normalise the idea of riding to work. It encourages people who have never ridden to work before to give it a go, and it allows regular riders to stay motivated and encourage their work mates to get involved.
