Strategic cycling links
Our cycling network is an important feature of our City, linking the community to important destinations within our City and to the wider Metropolitan area.
We have a target to increase cycling trips in our City from the current level of 3% of all trips to 6% by 2031. We have recently developed a Bike Network Action Plan to assist in achieving this target.

Along the Gawler rail line.
Along our coastline.
We’re building the next section with the aim to offer our residents genuine travel alternatives and recreational opportunities that can improve their health and lifestyle as well as reduce traffic congestion.
We have developed a strategic walking and riding corridor along the Grange Railway Line with a new path on Tapleys Hill Road.
From the city to the sea.
A safe bike riding corridor along the Outer Harbor Railway Line, linking bike riders to cafes, shops and playgrounds like MJ McInerney Reserve and the Croydon Train Park.
In collaboration with the City of Port Adelaide Enfield, we have been working to improve riding conditions, wayfinding and infrastructure along this corridor. The State Government has recently finished construction of new bridges and underpasses, enabling bike riders to get from the Adelaide Parklands to Kilkenny without crossing any major roads. The route then continues along quiet streets and off-road paths all the way along the railway line.
Over the last 12 months there has been a rapid increase of bike riders using the Outer Harbor Greenway in Woodville, increasing from 3,700 to over 4,600 a month.
What is a greenway?
A Greenway is a cycling route made up of local streets and paths next to the railway line. It is signed with different painted logos called sharrows. A sharrow is a bicycle logo with two chevrons or arrows above it. These are placed closer to the centre of the street, unlike the standard bicycle logos which are placed next to the kerb. The sharrows are intended to position cyclists away from parked cars (away from the ‘door zone’).
