Cycling the Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula
South of Adelaide, the sealed 34-kilometre Coast to Vines rail trail goes from Hallett Cove railway station to Willunga, taking in the magnificent cliffs of Hallett Cove, the natural beauty of the Onkaparinga River and the McLaren Vale wine district. Oxygen Cycles at McLaren Vale hires entry-level mountain bikes and is based close to the rail trail. Onya Bike Tours and Hire at The Carriage Cafe in McLaren Vale has bikes, tandems and rickshaws suitable for families.
The 30-kilometre Encounter Bikeway, going from Victor Harbor to Goolwa along some pretty stretches of coastline, is suitable for rollerbladers, cyclists and walkers. It links Port Elliot and Middleton. You can hire bikes from Victor Harbor Cycle. Cycling Tours Australia caters for three-to-five-day, self-guided cycling tours on the Fleurieu Peninsula, staying in four-star hotels and B&Bs. The company provides roadside assistance and luggage transfers each day.
