The GreenWay is an urban green corridor in Sydney's Inner West. It is a bush corridor and a hub for community arts and groups, bushcare, walking and cycling. The GreenWay Community is maintaining a campaign to build an off-road shared path from the Cooks River to Iron Cove. This trail was to be built as part of the Inner West Light Rail Extension but was deferred by the state government. As an interim measure we have marked out an alternative route to help people travel along the corridor.

On Super Sunday 9 November 2014, volunteers from local bike clubs were stationed at 8 sites along the GreenWay from 9am to 1pm counting recreational use of the GreenWay. This was part of a national day of counting across Australia, organised by Victoria-based Bicycle Network. Unlike last year, when the counts were rained off for two consecutive weekends, Sunday's weather was perfect for being outside. Several thousand cyclists, walkers, joggers, dog walkers, scooterers, pram walkers were recorded out and about along the GreenWay over the four hours.
