What We Offer Councils

Bike SA delivers quality services and has achieved excellent outcomes across a broad range of council objectives including those relating to health and well being, community development, environment and community spaces, traffic management/congestion, and green active transport.

Some of our recent/current Council projects include:

  • Cycle Friendly Community plan and services with Port Pirie Regional Council
  • Adelaide by Bike with Adelaide City Council
  • Cycle Salisbury with Salisbury Council
  • New Arrivals/Refugee CycleSafe with City of Charles Sturt
  • CycleSafe Essentials, Bike Skills and School Holiday Bike Education Programs with Onkaparinga Council

The funding arrangements for our projects vary considerably, including through state departments like DPTI, Commonwealth schemes such as the Healthy Communities Initiative, OPAL, Travelsmart and Councils.

Bicycle SA currently offers over 15 different services to Councils, and their communities, including an extensive range of practical education, recreational cycling events, online support and information, bicycle planning and major initiative consulting. All of these services have been developed through a consultative process and designed to be 'fit for purpose'. They are strongly linked to achieving particular interventions or objectives and for delivery to identified market segments.

Cycle Safe Essentials

CycleSafe Essentials is an exciting 2.5 hour course aimed at encouraging and supporting adults into commuter and recreational cycling. It seeks to find solutions to common barriers that often stop people from considering cycling like a lack of skills and confidence to negotiate traffic, safer routes, rules and awareness.

What makes these sessions easy to attend is that all bikes and helmets are provided, the groups are small (up to 5 people), convenient short time frames, and Bike SA can deliver training at a location that suits the community or organisation that books it.

A combination of theory and practical sessions*:

  • Bike fit and how to do your own bicycle safety check
  • Helmet, safety checks and fitting
  • Safe methods to negotiate common traffic situations e.g. lefts, rights, hook turns, passing parked cars scanning and signalling
  • Commuter and route planning scenarios
  • Practical advice on equipment, clothing and accessories
  • Basic bike handling (off road) instruction - improving balance and control skills, emergency braking, scanning etc.
  • Road rules specific to cycling
  • A practical sessions through local streets
