Bupa RideAbout is a series of bicycle rides that aims to bring families together for an active adventure on three Sundays in spring/summer. Each ride takes place on one of Adelaide’s picturesque bicycle routes. You can begin your adventure anywhere on the route or at the official start/finish which will be located at the Bupa RideAbout Village.
During each ride your family will be able to take part in a series of unique challenges that includes a treasure hunt during the Park Lands RideAbout, a scavenger hunt on the Beach RideAbout and an opportunity to test your skills and agility during some exciting games at River RideAbout.
The Bupa RideAbout Village
The Bupa RideAbout Village is the official start/finish of each ride and is located at Elder Park for the Park Lands RideAbout and Beach RideAbout and at Pinky Flats for the River RideAbout where there will be heaps of entertainment and activities. The Village will be open from 9am to 2pm.
Start and Finish
Although the official start/finish is at the Bupa RideAbout Village, you can start and finish your ride anywhere on the route.
You can begin the ride any time between 9am and 1pm but please note that activities will be closed by 2pm so best not to start our any later than 1pm.
