A bike trail could link four of South Australia’s premiere wine regions under a plan to help aid the recovery of the state’s regions out of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The proposed new Adelaide Wine Capital Cycle Train would begin in the Clare Valley, then winding through the Barossa and Adelaide Hills down to McLaren Vale.

The 250km trail would make its way through 22 towns and six different councils, all of which have signed a memorandum of understanding to develop the project.

Barossa Council mayor Bim Lange told the ABC that the construction of the trail would help the regions recover from the downturn currently being experienced.

“This is something that will be there for many generations … There’s nothing like this to this degree in Australia, and there’s only a few in the world that have something like this,” Lange said.
