One of the best ways to explore a city in a short time frame is through a bike ride
. The Capital City Trail, which is just under 30 kms (19mi) start to finish, takes you through much of Melbourne’s sights, on a gentle road for riding. Starting at Princes Bridge near Flinders Street station, you can choose to ride the trail clockwise or anticlockwise, by either heading east or west. Make sure to keep an eye out for famous landmarks such as the Marvel Stadium, Melbourne Zoo, Southbank and Melbourne Cricket Ground en route.
