Incomplete network for cycling in Adelaide area presents dangers but websites offer links
An Adelaide Hills cycling tour route, among those suggested by the Bicycle Network's website.
During 2011-16, an average of four people have been killed and 69 people seriously injured annually in cyclist-involved road crashes in South Australia.
This is partly the effect of an Adelaide metropolitan area network of bicycle lanes and bikeway that still suffers from gaps.
While some major bike paths, such as the linear park, coast park and Mike Turtur, are free of motor traffic, most bike paths are still marked by lines at the side of roads.
The state government has been working, through its Black Spot program, to link up gaps in the line markings.
Although the metropolitan bike network is not comprehensive, the government website does present a Cycle Instead Journey Planner, which suggests cycle routes based on selected destination point.
It allows cyclists to select between a route that maximises designated bike paths, quiet roads, the fastest route or the flattest route.
A Trail Experience website also allows bike paths in regional areas.
Google Map also had a bike route search in the Get Directions function.
