On yer bike Adelaide!

This week I discovered another cool thing about Adelaide. There’s a scheme called Adelaide City Bikes where anyone can hire a bicycle for FREE! It’s part of the council’s plan to make a cleaner greener city and I think it’s great. There are lots of places where you can collect a bike. All you need is your driving license or passport as a deposit.

Where to Cycle in Adelaide

After finding out about the River Torrens Linear Trail via TripAdvisor, I thought it would be the prefect place for a relaxing ride. I can recommend picking up the bikes from the Zoo, which is right next to the trail and it’s open 7 days a week. The bikes even come with a helmet and a chain for locking up the bike. I really liked my bike as it had a comfy seat (very important!) and a basket at the front.

The Trail is really beautiful, with lots of wildlife to spot along the way. It’s also car-free and mostly flat, which are both wins in my book. I had so much fun riding along with the wind in my hair. We ended up riding for nine miles in a loop, heading down one side of the river and back along the other side. If you fancy giving the bikes a go, check out this handy leaflet for all the details. Next time, I’m keen to rent a bike a head to the beach!

Bye for now…
