It’s official, Adelaide Free Bikes is the Best Free Fun in Adelaide according to City newspaper readers and the judging panel for the inaugural City Awards announced this week at a ceremony hosted by The Advertiser.

The awards, sponsored by Adelaide City Council, recognised the best performers across a range of businesses and activities. Bike SA was delighted to accept the award for Best Free Fun, recognising the special nature of the programme, which provides free bikes all day, every day from a range of locations around the city. 25,000 residents, workers and visitors have used the bikes over the past twelve months, demonstrating the strong demand for easy access to bikes for trips to meetings and the markets, for exercise and of course for fun. It just goes to show cycling is some of the Best Free Fun you can enjoy anywhere in the world.

The City award is also testament to the hard work of Bike SA’s volunteers who give their time and skills to keep the Adelaide Free Bikes running.
