Explore Adelaide by Bike

Adelaide is easy to explore by bike. Broad, flat streets, beautiful Park Lands and plenty of bike paths and dedicated bike lanes make it friendly for people of all cycling abilities.

You can pick up a hard copy from the Adelaide Visitor Information Centre (James Place) or the City of Adelaide Customer Centre at 25 Pirie Street, Adelaide.

Park Lands Trail

The Park Lands Trail is a fun, safe and easy route to experience Adelaide’s Park Lands.

Make a day of it as exploring the Adelaide Park Lands Trail will take you through the historic West Terrace Cemetery, the stunning Himeji Gardens, and past the Botanic Gardens and National Wine Centre of Australia. It also passes the Adelaide Zoo, Old Adelaide Gaol and a number of BBQ and picnic areas.


For a shorter but just as scenic ride, cycle along the River Torrens Linear Park Trail. The trail takes you from the Adelaide Zoo in the east to the Bonython Park Activity Hub in the west.

It passes through the Riverbank precinct, which includes the Adelaide Festival Centre, Adelaide Oval and Adelaide Convention Centre; over the Riverbank Bridge and past the North Adelaide Par 3 Golf Course.

Wheely Good Fun for the Whole Family!

Bike riding together as a family is a great way to spend time together outdoors. Start planning a day of exploration and adventure in the city and surrounding suburbs by downloading a Wheely Good Fun Map.

Choose either the Wheely Good Fun in  the South-East map or our new Wheely Good Fun in the South-West. Why not do both? Each map provides some suggested rides, and things to do and see along the way.


Cycle Instead

Cycle Instead is an interactive Journey Planner for your bike trip. It shows the Bikedirect network across metropolitan Adelaide so you can quickly choose the most direct and comfortable route for your journey, using secondary roads, bike lanes, shared paths, greenways and bicycle boulevards.

Adelaide City Bike Art Trail

There are plenty of places around the city to park and lock up your bike. Some have been creatively made by South Australian artists as part of the Adelaide City Bike Art Trail. The large-scale sculptural works were commissioned by City of Adelaide, with assistance from the South Australian Government through Arts SA.

Sitting alongside or incorporating a public bike rack, the works can be found at 11 locations and form a unique walking and cycling art trail through the CBD and North Adelaide.
