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. After proceeding north along the Main North Road for a short distance, the climbing starts with a right turn onto Black Top Rd followed by another right turn onto Williams Rd which eventually links back onto Black Top Rd, leading to the township of One Tree Hill.
The visit to One Tree Hill is only fleeting as a left 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.
