A hill climbers ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the climbing starts almost immediately with the steady rise of Sunnyside Drive followed by Alexander Ave with its multiple steep gradients. From the top of Alexander Ave, 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. The ride continues on towards Williamstown via Little South Para Rd for a short distance before the climbing starts again at Hill Rd.
After Hill Rd the route plateaus along Norsworthy and Forreston Rds before the fast downhill run into Williamstown via Warren Rd, passing Warren Reservoir along the way.
The return ride to Gawler leaves Williamstown and follows Balmoral Rd then Calton Rd before the final downhill run to Gawler.
