A flat ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.

After leaving Gawler, the ride takes in the full 23 km Stuart O'Grady Bikeway (SOB) alongside the Northern Expressway.

The ride exits the southern end of the SOB and takes a combination of back roads including Mill Rd, Greyhound Rd and Mumford Rd until a left turn onto Heaslip Rd. Heaslip Rd is only ridden for a short distance before a right turn onto Edinburgh Rd takes the route through the Edinburgh Precinct, passing DSTO and the Edinburgh RAAF Base.

A left turn at Bellchambers Rd leads to Andrews Rd before re-entering the SOB via the Petherton Road gate and returning to Gawler.

Oh I only answered half of your question. 

Take a look at Keith's route map HERE. This should a fine route at 6 am...

@ Dean, 
I have just checked Keith Davies last ride on Strava, and he also lives in Parafield.

He took exactly an hour to get to Jaspers last week.

 Hope that helps...

If i was to ride from Parafield to Gawler what would the best way be and what time shall it take?

Comment by terry heney on March 9, 2012 at 20:58

Probably wont be any head wind at all at 8ish am...on the SOB..

Evening ride if how the weather has been soo far over the past two evenings will be fantastic.. no wind to speak of at all and I live on Peachey Road

What a tailwind on the SOB, you must be joking.  Headwind going out and headwind coming back, some things never change.

Comment by Pete (repeats ?) Roberts on March 9, 2012 at 18:48

Tail wind on the return !

Comment by Mick Adams on March 9, 2012 at 18:35

@ Pat & RD6  will be good to see the Muddies / L / Crabbies whatever out North. Wilson has organised near perfect weather 19-21 deg with SE 11km/h winds.
