Woollahra Council supports cycling as a sustainable form of transport and a healthy alternative to travelling by private motor vehicle.
Woollahra's Bike Plan was adopted in 2000 and has been progressively implemented since that date. It provides facilities for cycling throughout the Municipality.
Council has also prepared more detailed transport maps in conjunction with Waverley Council called Cycling in Waverley and Woollahra (PDF). This map is also available in a brochure-style hard-copy format at our libraries and Customer Service Centre.
Council has undertaken a review of the 2000 Bike Plan and has developed the Woollahra Bicycle Strategy 2009 (PDF, 3.4 MB).
The Bicycle Strategy and Route Plan may also be viewed at our Customer Service Centre located in the Council Chambers.
Dockless bike share is a new business model that allows you to access a bike any time of the day through a smartphone app. Bikes can be picked up and dropped off from almost anywhere as they don’t have to be located in a formal docking station and can be used for one-way or return trips.
Dockless bike share services are not owned or implemented by Woollahra Municipal Council.
If you are interested in using these services or would like to report a share bike which is causing a hazard or obstruction, you can contact the dockless bike share companies directly.

Woollahra Council, in partnership with City of Sydney, Inner West, Canada Bay, Randwick, Waverley councils, has developed a standard set of guidelines for bike share operators. These guidelines (PDF, 31.8 KB) set out minimum standards and expectations for dockless bike share operations in Sydney and will be in operation from 22 December 2017. Councils and relevant authorities will review operations every three months.
These guidelines apply across the six municipalities of: Canada Bay, City of Sydney, Inner West, Randwick, Waverley, and Woollahra.
