Sunday 30 October The Park Lands RideAbout

Ride around Adelaide’s beautiful Park Lands and use clues to discover treasure at locations on the route.

The Park Lands RideAbout follows the Park Lands Trail and takes in some of Adelaide’s iconic locations such as the Adelaide Zoo, the Botanic Gardens and historic sites such as the Adelaide Gaol and the West Terrace Cemetery. The route will also travel past playgrounds should the kids need a break from riding and kiosks should your family need refreshments. The official start/finish and Bupa RideAbout Village is at Elder Park.

If it is more convenient, feel free to start anywhere on the route but make sure you still collect your picnic at the Village. The total distance of the route is 16km however you can take a short cut from the southern Park Lands back to Elder Park via King William Road.
