Riding In Adelaide

Postby DogsBollocks on Sat 10th Mar 9:53pm

Hiya, looks like I’ve got 2 free days in Adelaide with the opportunity to take a bike. Any riding there ? Is it worth the effort to take a bike or can I hire there ? Proximity to town ? Any advice welcome. What say you pilgrims :)

It is a fantastic city for road riding. Bold call but of all the cities I've ridden in, it's my favourite.

Check out this for ideas. https://www.lavelocita.cc/la-velocita-r ... ing-routes

Gorge Road is a beautiful climb, as is anywhere in the Adelaide Hills.


If you're after mountain biking I can't really help you. There must be some decent trails in the hills up around Cleland Park that is reasonably close to the city though.

Can't help with bike hire (I've always taken a bike with me) but there must be places in the city that have hire bikes.

Is it Mt Lofty? I think theres singletrack in there somewhere. Im pretty sure that was a straightforward ride up there though I cant remember which bike I took (probably the roadie, I was there for TdU).

Cheers Trevs. I'm thinking MTB. There's some pretty good info about but it's more about if it's actually worth taking a bike with me. It looks like there a lot of riding quite close to the CBD as well so that helps. Cheers.
