Riders - please speak up.

To get change we need to support change.

There are three important consultations closing very soon. Two at council level, one with the RAA and one excellent survey on road safety from the State Government.

Please have your say today. Together we can help build a better city and world. Read on...


SA Road Safety Strategy - closes 2 November
Please EVERYONE TAKE 5 MINUTES TO ANSWER. We need as many bike riders/walkers to answer as possible.

The Department of Infrastructure and Transport has put together an excellent survey to gather people’s thoughts on what should be in our state’s next road safety strategy.

It is excellent because it features questions that allow people to say how important walking and cycling are to them and to answer that a road safety strategy should prioritise improvements to these networks, highlight the importance of focusing on lowering speed limits and some discussion on alternatives to driving; all as key aspects of improving safety.

Thank you to the Department of Infrastructure and Transport for their thoughtful approach. Now it is our time to step up as the community and have our say. 


Unley Bikeway Consultation - Closes 4 November

We know lots of you ride the Mike Turtur Bikeway. Have your say on the most recent proposed upgrades and support Unley Council to support you.

The King William Road project is located between Mike Turtur Bikeway (which is currently being upgraded) and Greenhill Road and gives us two options. One is a 4m wide shared use path, the other on-road (partly protected) bikeways.

Visit the Yoursay
page for more detail and have your say.

A second project is located along Weller Street (north of Albert Street) and Simpson Parade, and aims to complete the final section of the Wood-Weller Street Bicycle Route. Your feedback is also invited via the page for this project.

RAA Risky Rides Survey - closes 1 November

Last few days to nominate up to 10 cycle lanes and cycle paths that pose a risk to cyclists in the RAA's Risky Rides survey. All responses will remain confidential in line with their privacy policy and published results will be anonymised.

We encourage you all to participate in this survey which represents a significant opportunity to highlight any poor cycle infrastructure. Please complete the survey by Sunday 1 November.

Also remember if you are a RAA member that you can call on roadside assistance if your bike fails you!

McLaren Flat to Vale Trail - closes 9 November

City of Onkaparinga is proposing a McLaren Flat to McLaren Vale Trail encompassing a 2.5m wide off-road shared use path and use of existing road networks between the townships to improve pedestrian/cycling safety and connectivity. The proposed Trial will also connect to the Coast to Vines Trail in McLaren Vale, then providing regional off-road cycling/pedestrians connections to Willunga, Darlington and Hallett Cove. 

The council are seeking
feedback on the proposals, the consultation closes 9 November 2020.
