Ride Details
A flat ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.

After leaving Gawler, the ride takes in the full 23 km Stuart O'Grady Bikeway (SOB) alongside the Northern Expressway.

The ride exits the southern end of the SOB and takes a combination of back roads including Mill Rd, Greyhound Rd and Mumford Rd until a left turn onto Heaslip Rd. Heaslip Rd is only ridden for a short distance before a right turn onto Edinburgh Rd takes the route through the Edinburgh Precinct, passing DSTO and the Edinburgh RAAF Base.

A right turn at Bellchambers Rd leads to Peachey Rd which is ridden until its intersection with Curtis Rd. Proceeding straight ahead at the traffic lights, a right turn is then made onto Newton Blvd leading to Coventry Rd which returns to Gawler.

Special Note

  • The Café will not be open at the conclusion of the group ride, so the coffee stop will be En Route at the 24HR 'On The Run' along Peachey Rd.

  • This is a night ride and as such your bike will need to be equipped with both front and rear lights. Appropriate night riding attire, such as reflective/fluoro vests, is also highly recommended.

IMPORTANT

The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.
