All you need to know

Adelaide FREE Bikes is a FREE bike hire scheme available to everyone...every day. Operating since 2005 and unique in Australia, it is just one part of the Adelaide City Council's strategy to achieve a cleaner and greener City.

The scheme is constantly expanding and Adelaide FREE Bikes are now available from locations in Adelaide City, Unley and Charles Sturt areas, thanks to the support of local councils. Bicycle SA is partnering with these councils to grow this innovative programme across metropolitan Adelaide, creating a city-wide bike share network.

As it is a requirement of the law to ride with a helmet, you will be provided with one (available in a range of sizes) as well as a bike lock, which means you can hop off your bike to shop or go for lunch confident that your bike will be where you left it when you return.

Bicycle SA's mission is to get more people cycling more often in safer, healthier communities.

For more information about how you can join and the great benefits of Bicycle SA membership!
