This page is under construction! It will (eventually) provide a brief outline & maps of each of the Port Adelaide/Enfield Council Area’s main cycling routes with links to more detailed information.
1. The Outer Harbour Greenway:
Port Adelaide/Enfield’s Proposed Bicycle Network.
Ride the 21km between the Le Fevre Penninsula and the Adelaide CBD safely and easily! Most of the route is on off-road pathways or traffic-calmed local roads and railway boulevards. All
main road crossings are either light-controlled
or are provided with underpasses or bike bridges! The OHG connects to local cycling networks along the way. The PortBUG’s printable A4 map can be found here
. DPTI Greenway page and directions here
. The OHG is best understood as two sections:
- The ‘Port Connector’ – Adelaide CBD to the Port Adelaide Waterfront (approx 13km)
- The ‘Peninsula Pedaler’ – The Port’s Waterfront to Outer Harbour (approx 8km).
1.1. The OHG – ‘Port Connector’:
The Port Connector Pathway at Woodville. (pic, DPTI).
This is the main Greenway between the Adelaide CBD and Parklands and the Port Adelaide Waterfront. In many ways it is Adelaide’s pre-eminent cycleway. It’s a secure route that we reckon is suitable for a wide range of ages and abilities. Very young children should be accompanied by adults but older children (perhaps 8-10) should have no problems once they are familiar with the route and with community bicycle use (when to take to the footpath, crossing at lights etc). It’s a picturesque and interesting ride, pleasant and well lit with controlled crossings or bridges/underpasses at all main roads.
There are several parks along the way as well as some coffee/food stops. Eventually we hope to see lots of signposts to local routes, shops & services as well! The Port Connector links to a number of local bike networks and pathways and passes close to all of the rail stations between the City and Port Adelaide (so you can always catch the train home!)
1.2. The OHG – ‘Penninsula Pedaler’:
Follow the Sharrows!
Port Waterfront to the Outer Harbour Recreation Park Lookouts – about 8km, mostly on quiet local roads with some shared-use pathways and several off-road connectors between adjacent streets. The route is signposted (blue and white ‘Greenway’ signs) with most of the road surface marked with sharrows
. There are some uncontrolled road crossings involved and primary-age children should be accompanied by adults until they are quite familiar with the route.
We believe that the ‘Pedaler’ has been developed mainly
as a practical and secure route for residents and workers traveling to The Port’s shops & services – see the route here
. For a change, those using this route to ride to Outer Harbor can return to Semaphore and/or Port Adelaide via the scenic Coast Park Bikeway (remember – it’s a shared-use path and often heavily used!) Catching the train
home is also easy as the route travels close to the Outer Harbour Rail Line and several rail stations.
