If you’re inspired to ride, the city’s loaded with places to push your pedals.

Adelaide hosts a smorgasbord of brilliant events right through the year and summer certainly sets the scene. From some of the city’s biggest community celebrations, to cultural festivals, live music concerts and world-class sporting events – now’s the time to explore the city - especially on two wheels!

With tree-lined bike trails winding their way throughout the Adelaide Park Lands and a growing network of on-street bikeways offering safe passage across town, Adelaide is a cyclists’ city.

The Park Lands Trail is a relaxed and safe way for families to explore the natural beauty surrounding Adelaide. Start with some playtime at the Pityarilla Activity Hub in the South Park Lands, then cycle 4 kms to Botanic Park and enjoy a picnic under a shady Moreton Bay Fig tree. Or, set off from the Adelaide Gaol in the West Park Lands and ride 3 kms to the Adelaide Aquatic Centre for a dip in the pool. There are options galore.

On-street cycling routes help thousands of riders who make their way into and out of the city every day. Locals are certainly making good use of the latest extension to the Frome Street bikeway – which allows riders to cycle on a path fully separated from traffic. A digital bike counter near the Pirie Street intersection shows that, on sunny days, about 800 bikes use this route daily.
