The Mike Turtur Bikeway is a popular multi-use path in South Adelaide, popular as a commuting route for cyclists. Named in 2010 after the local track cycling Olympian Michael Turtur, the paved, flat trail follows the Glenelg tramline for 9.6 km from central Adelaide southwest to Glenelg, on the coast. There are interesting metal sculptures along the trail and the Main South Road overpass provides a nice view. A good option is to run one way and take the tram back!
Notes: There are some busy road crossings, so don’t expect a stop-free run. Additionally, there are sections between Goodwood and Hyde Park that are along footpaths. And keep left!
Add-On: Once in Glenelg, you can follow the Coastal Trail.
- 9.6 km (6 miles) one-way
