Cycling around Rockingham
The Department of Transport has useful resources to help plan your cycling journey between Rockingham and Perth.
We have also developed Your Move maps which are a guide for walking, cycling and using public transport in the City of Rockingham.
Your Move Rockingham
We run the Your Move program with the Department of Transport. Your Move promotes walking, cycling, scooting and public transport to get around Rockingham. The program offers support and advice to help you find other ways to get to and from school, your workplace and around your local area. You can get involved by walking, riding and using public transport whenever possible. It is a great way to increase physical activity, reduce environmental impact and connect with others.
We have a number of local Your Move schools committed to increasing active transport among their students. If you would like to find out more about the Your Move program, visit the Your Move website for ideas, resources and tools to get you and your family moving.
If you would like to hear more about how to get Your Move in your school, contact us on 9528 0333 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Long Term Cycle Network
Over a two-year period starting 2020, the Department of Transport collaborated with 33 local governments in Perth and Peel to agree on routes, including strategic cross-boundary routes, that link parks, schools, community facilities and transport services, to make cycling a convenient and viable option.
The Log Term Cycle Network (LTCN) objective is to provide a blueprint to ensure state and local governments work together towards the delivery of one continuous bicycle network in Perth, providing additional transport options, recreational opportunities, support for tourism and commercial activity, and creating a bicycle network catering for all ages and abilities.
As the City of Rockingham continues to grow and develop, ensuring the network is integrated and continues to connect Rockingham with other suburbs is important to the health and wellbeing of our community.
Visit the Long Term Cycle Network for Perth Map to see the routes. To find a route that caters to your specific requirements, they have been colour coded for your cycle planning convenience.
Primary Routes (Red)
High demand corridors that connect major destinations of regional importance. They form the spine of the cycle network and are often located adjacent to major roads, rail corridors, rivers and ocean foreshores. Primary routes are vital to all sorts of bike riding, including medium or long-distance commuting/utility, recreational training and tourism trips.
Secondary Routes (Blue)
Moderate level of demand, providing connectivity between primary routes and major activity centres such as shopping precincts, industrial areas or major health, education, sporting and civic facilities.
Local Routes (Green)
Lower level of demand providing critical access to higher order routes, local amenities, and recreational spaces. Predominantly located in local residential areas, local routes often support the start or end of each trip, and as such need to cater for the needs of users of all ages and abilities.
