Welcome!  …to the Port Adelaide Bicycle User Group. We’re a local community group working to improve our cycling environment and conditions for ‘utility’ bicycle use & health-giving active mobility across the Port Adelaide/Enfield Council Area:

Our goals: we want to ensure…

  • a better deal for Bikes, Bicycle Users & Active Mobility use across the PA/E Council Area 
  • Active Transport is considered in all Council planning & investment
  • more Greenways, off-road bike paths, bike lanes & bike connectivity
  • lower traffic speeds, safer roads & a bike-friendly community
  • a Better Bicycle Future!

Our approach: We are a voluntary community group working with Council, Government & fellow community members to:

  • identify potential bike routes & active transport destinations
  • build support for bicycle use within our community
  • promote new initiatives & opportunities for improvement
  • provide a voice for ‘practical’ bicycle use.

Our Current Focus: Over 2018 we’re concentrating on:

  • the completion & launch of the Outer Harbor Greenway
  • ensuring implementation of the Port’s Local Area Bicycle Plan 2015-2020
  • ensuring the inclusion of cycling facilities in major Government-driven transport & planning projects (such as the Northern Connector, Torrens to Torrens, Torrens Junction, Dock One and Port Dock Rail Station projects and the redevelopment of Hart Street, Semaphore.
