The BikeDirect cycling network in South Australia designates routes based on road or path type. The image explains how each type of route is represented visually. Local routes are marked blue, they are not part of the BikeDirect network, but cyclists may find ideal conditions on these roads, arterial routes are orange, they carry heavy volumes of traffic ay most times with many having major intersections. Many are signed with an alphanumeric route numbering system which is shown on BikeDirect maps and off road paths are green and white striped they are both sealed and unsealed surfaces and are shared with pedestrians so special care must be taken..

Hazard reporting

Please report any damage or hazard on the road network.

If the hazard is on a Department for Infrastructure and Transport road, phone the Traffic Control Centre on 1800 018 313 (freecall 24-hours).
