Free rides coming at cycle centre
Published on 12 November 2021
The Road and Cycle Safety Centre, located on Hazel Grove in Ridgehaven, is undergoing a $500,000 makeover to provide free public access.
From January 2022, the centre will be open for free public use each Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday and Public Holiday.
Birthday parties bookings are available on Saturdays.
Private education sessions and programs are available to schools and other community groups each Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The upgrade includes a new 20-space carpark and boundary fencing, creating a safe place for residents to access during daylight hours and at no cost.
“Opening up the centre means that children can gain cycling skills and confidence in a safe and fun environment. And the centre is the only one of its kind catering to families north of Adelaide’s CBD,” said Deputy Major Lucas Jones.
Landscaping works will occur in early 2022.
A grant of $220,000 was received from the Australian Government for this project. Council funded the remaining $280,000 for the works.
