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
