Ride Details A predominately undulating ride, with one major hill climb, starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the ride joins onto the Gawler Bypass before linking up with the Gawler-Kapunda Rd for the straight run out towards Freeling.
A left turn at Gray St leads to Freeling's town centre where it will be possible to have a short break.
Exiting Freeling along Hanson St leads back to the Gawler-Kapunda Rd for the long haul out to Kapunda where another short break will be mandatory.
Exiting Kapunda via Clare Rd leads to the Tarlee-Kapunda Rd where the one major climb of the route begins before the downhill run into the small township of Tarlee.
The Main North Rd (or Highway 32) takes the route due south to Templers where a right turn onto Wasleys Rd is made.
The ride continues in a westerly direction to Wasleys before returning to Gawler via Kangaroo Flat along Mallala Rd, passing Roseworthy College along the way.
Mallala Rd eventually becomes Redbanks Rd and a right turn at the large roundabout leads back to the Gawler Bypass via a short section of Weyland Rd.
The Two Wells Rd exit from the Gawler Bypass signifies the last section of the ride and the return into Gawler.
The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.
