Jacana shimmy route 
A shimmy bike route is a signposted route that makes its way through quiet streets. In addition to signage, shimmy routes have bike symbols and arrows on the road surface that tell you which way to go. Hume's first shimmy route weaves its way through the back streets of Jacana to link Broadmeadows Town Centre to the Moonee Ponds Creek Trail and Western Ring Road Trail.

Criterium  Cycling Facility Feasibility Study

Hume City Council has prepared a Cycling Facility Feasibility Study. The study recommends the establishment of a dedicated off-road cycling facility in Hume City based on the research and consultation that has been undertaken, subject to a suitable site being available. Due to the regional nature of the facility, it is recommended that the project should only be further pursued when external funding can be secured.
