This event will be run concurrently on the same day at the same time with another Gawler Wheelers event.
The route is predominately a hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
The first half of the route, however, is flat and passes through Muno Para, Davoren Park, Elizabeth West, the Edinburgh precinct, Salisbury and eventually Salisbury Heights, where the first long steady climb starts on The Grove Way.
Reaching the top of The Grove Way gives way to a quick downhill, leading to its intersection with Golden Grove Rd which is ridden for a short distance until a right turn onto the One Tree Hill Rd marks the end of suburbia. The route continues gradually upwards and at one point passes over the historic Snake Gully Bridge (1874), then continues onwards through Sampson Flat until a left turn onto Crosshill Rd leads to the township of One Tree Hill.
The visit to One Tree Hill is only fleeting as a right turn onto Cornishmans Hill Rd starts the climbing again, eventually reaching the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd via a short section of Uley Rd. A left turn onto Kentish Rd begins the final downhill run into Gawler which completes the ride.
The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.
