Queensland's capital city considers lifting ban on mountain biking

The Brisbane City Council is reviewing outdoor recreation uses in bushland reserves with the possibility of overturning the ban on mountain biking. Currently there is overwhelming support for overturning the ban on mountain biking in bushland reserves, and the council can no longer ignore the growing demand.

Mountain bikers are asked to complete an online survey to answer questions about where riders would like access, how often they ride and their motivations.

Access the survey at www.brisbane.qld.gov.au/BCC:BASE:1631453223:pc=PC_2133. Then go to Outdoor recreation/mountain bike riding and click on the online survey.
