This map has been created to show Melbourne’s main bicycle routes in a different light. Existing maps concentrate on geographical accuracy rather than useability or visual design. This can make it difficult to plan routes strategically or see how parts of the network fit together (or don’t).
It serves three purposes:
- Strategic route planning, especially for long distances
- Highlight gaps in the network
- Provide a more legible and graphical representation of Melbourne’s major bicycle routes.
