The Principal Bicycle Network (PBN) in Melbourne is a network of arterial cycling routes in metropolitan Melbourne.

  • The PBN currently consists of approximately 3500 kilometres of existing and proposed on-road and off-road bicycle routes. So far, approximately 1200 kilometres of the network has been completed.
  • VicRoads has primary responsibility for managing the development of the PBN.
  • Bicycle facilities on the PBN are implemented by VicRoads and local councils depending on whether they are on an arterial or local road.
