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
As of midnight Thursday 21 October, those that live in metropolitan Melbourne can ride a bike outdoors for exercise with up to 15 people. There is no limit on distance or duration of exercise but riders must stay within the boundary of metropolitan Melbourne.
You should carry a mask whenever you ride in case you need to put it on when you stop.
If you live in regional Victoria, you can exercise anywhere across regional Victoria with up to 20 people. There is no limit on the amount of time you can exercise for.
Rest of Australia
While you are currently free to ride a bike as much as you like in most states, there are some restrictions on home visitors and mask rules. It is also 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.
