Parramatta River Cycleway
The Parramatta Valley Cycleway is a 15 kilometre long path shared by cyclists and pedestrians that follows the Parramatta River.
Cyclists can ride the relatively flat route from Morrison Bay Park in Ryde through the Ermington Nature Reserve and along the River foreshore to the Parramatta CBD.
The Cycleway follows the River providing some pleasant outlooks, heritage buildings, and nature reserves.
From Morrison Bay Park in Ryde, the path heads west along a combination of dedicated bike paths, quiet streets, and the river foreshore.
Riders can continue to Parramatta CBD or Parramatta Park or explore the connection to Sydney Olympic Park via the Silverwater Bridge.
The cycle route is constantly being improved. Recently opened is the Escarpment Boardwalk, a river-level pedestrian and cyclist connection that delivers a missing link in the Parramatta Valley Cycleway. Riders can now stay on the northern banks of the river near the Parramatta CBD.
