SA Dept of Transport release online cycle route mapping tool.

Join the conversation on the main page.. or give it a go!

Department for Transport, Energy and Infrastructure (DTEI) is pleased to unveil the Cycle Instead Journey Planner, an online tool that will enable Adelaide cyclists, both novice and experienced, to plot their journey between suburbs, incorporating bike paths and off-road paths from the Bikedirect Network. The Cycle Instead Journey Planner will suggest routes based upon preferences such as getting from A to B as quickly as possible, travelling along interconnected backstreets or detouring to enjoy some of Adelaide’s premier cycling facilities like the River Torrens Linear Park. This also means that users will be able to select preferences to avoid hills and busy roads where possible, which may be ideal for those considering getting on their bike for the first time (or the first in quite a while). The Cycle Instead Journey Planner can also show the locations of traffic signals, bicycle parking at public transport interchanges and even bike shops.

The Cycle Instead Journey Planner can be found at

We hope that you enjoy the Cycle Instead Journey Planner, and if you have any questions please contact the travel behaviour team at

Kind regards,
The Travel Behaviour Team at DTEI

".....I often ride with young kids along the Torrens and elsewhere and it is difficult to impress upon them the necessity to always keep left, particularly if they're struggling on a climb...."

Unfortunately, while *your* kids might be well instructed and well behaved, that won't help much in the ( infrequent but ocassional) event that *someone * else does the wrong thing on the Torrens path. Hey, it's happened to me last winter, when a Sunday cyclist took a blind bend too fast, and crashed into me on MY side of the great harm done that time, but quite a scare; and as I DON'T cycle on the Torrens path very often , that incident must represent a fairly HIGH risk exposure (!). Moral of the story : Torrens Path = popular, picturesque, but often harardous.
