Can I still ride my bike outdoors?

Last updated: Wednesday 16 June 2021.

While we live in an unpredictable world where coronavirus restrictions and lockdowns can be snapped in place, we are lucky that we are still able to go outside and ride a bike for exercise and transport.

This page has the latest advice for bike riding in Victoria and the rest of Australia, including where and how long you can ride for. 

Remember keep your distance, stay safe and stop the spread of COVID-19. Get tested even if you have the mildest of symptoms.

Guidelines for Victoria

Restrictions in Victoria will ease from 11:59pm Thursday 17 June 2021.

There will be no restrictions on when or why you leave your home, so you can ride your bike outside for as long as you like.

You will not need to wear a mask while outside, but you still do need to carry one in case you go inside or cannot keep 1.5 metres from other people.

People who live in metropolitan Melbourne can ride in groups of up to 20 people, while people in regional Victoria can ride in groups of up to 50.

Bike riders are being asked not to ride to the Dandenongs while the area recovers from recent storms.

Rest of Australia

While you are currently free to ride a bike as much as you like in states other than Victoria, it is still important to monitor your health and not go for a ride if you are experiencing coronavirus symptoms.

See your state's website for the latest local information about coronavirus.
