Biking -- Adelaide's parks and riverbanks are very popular with cyclists. The city bikes scheme allows you free bike hire for use anywhere within the city limits. All you need is either your driver's license, proof of identity card, or passport.

You can get bikes from 9 locations around the city including Bicycle SA at 111 Franklin St. (tel. 08/8168 9999). For other locations, check www.bikesa.asn.au or call the Bicycle SA number above.
