Joondalup to Perth best route

Postby The JPs » Fri May 31, 2013 1:48 am

Hi all,

I am thinking about cycling to work in East Perth from Joondalup. Can anyone suggest the best route for a novice rider.

Also, how long do you think it will take?

Thanks

Hi,

The cycle path runs along side the freeway into the city from Joondalup most of the way, with some detours through suburban streets.

It would be worth doing the ride on a day you aren't time pressured the first as it isn't as straight forward as you would think.

The path is not the fastest route into the city, but by far the safest - you are also close to stations along this route so it is easy to hop on to a train if you want to.

I found Wanneroo road to be a little faster than the bike path, but like most main roads it is not the most cycling friendly environment in peak hour.

Hope that helps
Cheers

Oh, and it will take an hour - hour 1/2 (depending on your level of fitness, which will improve a lot if you do this regularly!)

Yup freeway bike path is the best, if not quickest, bet. My preference is ocean reef/gnangara/alexander dve/Fitzgerald for speed but its nit the safest route. Better than Wanneroo in my experience.
