While the Adelaide Parklands have plenty of bike paths to ride through, if you're looking for a bit more excitement you can't go past the Kurrangga BMX Track. You don't have to be a pro to take to the tracks, anyone can give it a go and test out their skills.



There are varying levels of tracks available, so that people can participate regardless of their skill level. If you are new to BMX riding then try out the beginner track, this is a simple track with small jumps that can help you familiarise yourself with riding. You can then move up to the intermediate track which is for those with a little bit more experience, but it still isn't too difficult. The advanced course should only be taken by those who are very competent with high skill and bicycle control. The advanced track has a range of different jumps for you to experiment on.



While you must wear protective gear on all tracks, it is recommended that you wear a full face helmet and gloves when you try the advanced course. Other gear like knee pads, elbow pads, and a helmet should be worn at all time. Children under 12 using the course must be supervised by an adult at all times, and the track is only to be used during daylight hours.



There are plenty of picnic tables and viewing areas by the different tracks, which mean that friends and family are able to watch anyone riding. The picnic table area is also great if you're looking for somewhere in the parklands to have lunch. There are barbecue facilities so that you can cook up some lunch by the track, or just bring along a picnic to enjoy on the tables. There are no toilet facilities at the track, but you'll find some at the nearby South Terrace Glover Playground.



The track is a great place for both experienced riders, and beginners who want to start out. If you're interested in giving it a go you can take a ride through the Parklands bike path first, and head to the track to try out your skills.
