**Active Travel…

Welcome to the Port Adelaide Bicycle User Group. We are local residents and volunteers working to improve conditions across the Port Adelaide/Enfield Council Area for ‘Utility’ bicycle use & secure and healthy Active Mobility for all.

Our goals: To ensure…

  • a better deal for bicycle, wheelchair & mobility device users & all aspects of Active Mobility & Active Travel across the PA/E Council Area 
  • that Active Transport is considered in all planning & investment initiatives
  • provision of more Greenways, off-road bike paths, shared-use pathways, bike lanes, local linkages & Active Travel connectivity
  • lower traffic speeds, safer roads & a bike & walking-friendly community
  • a Better Bicycle Future!

Our approach: Voluntary & cooperative community action, working with Council, Government & fellow members of the community:

  • to identify potential bicycle & Active Transport routes & destinations
  • to build strong support for bicycle use & all forms of Active Transport 
  • to promote new initiatives & opportunities for improved infrastructure
  • to provide a voice for ‘practical’ bicycle use, walking, use of mobility devices & all other forms of Active Transport.

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.
