This event will be run concurrently on the same day at the same time with another Gawler Wheelers event.
The route is predominately a beginner hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the ride follows the Stuart O'Grady Bikeway (SOB) until the intersection with Curtis Rd.
The route then passes through Muno Para, Blakeview and eventually Craigmore via Adams Rd, where the first long steady climb starts on Yorktown Rd. The climbing continues with a left turn onto Black Top Rd which leads to the township of One Tree Hill.
The visit to One Tree Hill is only fleeting as a left turn onto One Tree Hill Rd followed by another left turn onto the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd starts the climbing again.
A left turn onto Kentish Rd begins the final downhill run into Gawler which completes the ride.
