Great bike paths in and around Adelaide
Adelaide is an excellent city for cycling with a great climate and a predominantly flat CBD and surrounds. These great attributes, combined with an ever-increasing number of dedicated cycle paths, means there’s a great incentive to get out on the bike and explore.
Serafina from Cycle Adelaide South Australia has been out exploring these fantastic paths and we’ve got a great selection below for you to choose from.
So be sure to register to Ride for a reason, jump on the bike and enjoy these great routes from Serafina to help you reach your Distance Challenge:
Adelaide City to Glenelg and back
This is a fun and easy cycle from Adelaide City to Glenelg Beach along the Mike Turtur Bikeway, a separated bike path that follows the tram line. It's a great cycle to do with the family, an easy and safe 10 kms or 30mins each way (depending on speed) or a quick ride out for a swim and coffee at the beach!
Adelaide City to the Start of the Coast to Vines Trail
The Coast to Vines Trail is an iconic 37 km bike trail that follows the original steam train line from Adelaide to Willunga. In this video, I show you how to get from Adelaide city to the start of the Coast to Vines Trail by following the Marino Rocks Greenway through the city and suburbs. I share where I used to get lost, giving tips and advice along the ride so you can find your way easily.
Coast to Vines Trail
The Coast to Vines is a 40 km bike path that starts on the coast at Marino Rocks and meanders its way inland through McLaren Vale, finishing in Willunga. There’s plenty to see and do and don't forget to ride up Willunga Hill at the end, often part of the Tour Down Under route—you might be the next QOM or KOM! Getting back to Adelaide, you can jump on the train at Seaford (they run every half hour) or make a round trip and ride back—it's just as good riding and you get a different experience.
