We don't often venture into the laneways and side streets of Adelaide, many people stick to Rundle Mall or Rundle Street, sometimes heading down Gouger, Grote or Hindley. While many of these side streets may be dull and boring, Ebenezer Place is certainly not one of them.
For those in the know Ebenezer Place is one of Adelaide's trendiest streets, you can grab a beer, or sort through some new clothes. The people who run these businesses are really friendly, and at times the street can feel like a little community.
Treadly is where you head when you're looking for a new bike. They can help you out with just about anything bike related. Whether you're after a fixed gear, or just a regular bike these guys will either have it or know something about it. If you are into customising your bike, then you can buy parts here too. Think bright purple pedals, or a gold chain for your bike. Anything you can dream of, and Treadly can probably help you out. They also have a range of toddler bikes, bikes without pedals that are designed to help kids learn balance before they actually learn to ride a bike.
You Can Tell You've Found Treadly By the Bikes Outside
