When the sun is out, a great activity to enjoy as a family is a fun bike trail. In Adelaide, there are number of trails that are suitable for different ages and levels.

Eagle Mountain Bike Park

Eagle Mountain Bike Park includes 22km of bike trail and options for children or beginners to adults or the more advanced riders. And for those who like a bit of thrill on a BMX, a park with special over-the-top jumps is waiting to be conquered.

Cudlee Creek Mountain Bike Loop Trails

Cudlee Creek Mountain Loop Trails is a top spot for kids and their parents to get active! Perfect for the whole family, there are different trail options available from beginner to advanced riders.

Encounter Bikeway

The track at Encounter Bikeway is 29.5km one-way. Of course, any trail can be cut short if the little ones run out of steam. But this bikeway is worth the long ride because of unparalleled views of the coast. And if a rider needs a rest along the way, cafes and small parks provide respite.

Shepherds Hill Recreation Park

Shepherds Hill Recreation Park not only has some good bike trails for the whole family, but there are also some pretty awesome activities to soak up on the way through. Take in the panoramic views surrounding the Adelaide plains and coastline before exploring the old railway tunnel.

Linear Park Trail

This trail is safe and sits away from the traffic, making it very child-explorer friendly. Throughout the trail, there are playgrounds where kids can play, parents can rest. There are also little bridges you can ride over or stop to feed the ducks. And for another vehicular experience, trade the bike for a paddleboat.
