A hill climbers ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the ride follows the Main North Rd south before making a left turn onto Medlow Rd with its long steep climb. From the top of Medlow Rd, the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd provides a few fast/slow undulations before the downhill run to the Humbug Scrub crossroads.
The long steady climb of the One Tree Hill-Kersbrook Rd takes the rider up and over the 500m peak above Mt Crawford Forest followed by the fast descent into Kersbrook. From Kersbrook to Williamstown the road undulates just enough to keep the legs pushing and spinning, making the scheduled break in Williamstown all the more deserved.
Leaving Williamstown via Yettie Rd, the route then continues onto Balmoral Rd and Calton Rd before the final downhill run to Gawler.
The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.
