Our City has many on-road bike lanes and off-road paths for people riding a bicycle for travel or recreation.

\\svrfs\users\jadair cullen\Desktop\MP   Cycling PlanThe most popular and scenic cycling paths are situated along the River Torrens Linear Park. This 35-kilometre sealed cycling and walking trail follows the path of the River Torrens as it makes its way out of the hills at Athelstone, through the Adelaide CBD, to West Beach.

There are also a number of on-road bike lanes that provide an alternative safe method of travelling by bicycle throughout the City.
