This event will be run concurrently on the same day at the same time with another Gawler Wheelers event.
A hill climbers ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the climbing starts almost immediately with the steady rise of Potts Rd followed by the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd. The Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd provides a few fast/slow undulations before the downhill run to the Humbug Scrub cross roads.
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 south via South Para Rd to Chain of Ponds and the Millbrook Reservoir.
After a short section of Torrens Valley Rd, a left turn onto Tippett Rd followed by another left turn onto Gorge Rd leads to Cudlee Creek. A right turn onto Cudlee Creek Rd starts the climbing again and continues the route to the township of Lobethal where a break will no doubt be welcome.
Exiting Lobethal via Main St and the Adelaide-Lobethal Rd, directs the route towards Lenswood where a right turn onto Coldstore Rd leads to Fox Creek Rd and an extremely fast descent back to Cudlee Creek Rd.
The route returns to Gawler via the same outbound path, until a left turn onto Alexander Ave from the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd, starts 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.
