This event will be run concurrently on the same day at the same time with another Gawler Wheelers event.
The route is predominantly a beginner hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.
After leaving Gawler, the ride follows the Barossa Valley Way passing through Sandy Creek and Lyndoch. The ride continues on to picturesque Williamstown, via Lyndoch Valley Rd, where it will be possible to have a short break.
The ride continues with a left turn onto Mount Crawford Rd, from Williamstown's main street, which soon becomes Warren Rd, climbing gradually upwards towards Warren Reservoir. Once the peak is reached the route is reversed, with a fast downhill run back to Williamstown's main street.
Leaving Williamstown via Yettie Rd, the route then continues onto Balmoral Rd and Calton Rd before the final downhill run to Gawler.
