FOR RIDER SAFETY THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE EXTREME WEATHER.
It is intended to try again sometime in the next few months. My apologies for any inconvenience caused.
There are times in your life you will always remember and one of those is your first time... up Old Willunga Hill.
This will be a social group ride with the express intention of getting as many people up this hill as possible who have not previously done so.
The start will be from the McLaren Vale Visitors Centre on Main Road (known to many as the finish to Amy's Ride), which will be open from 10am so there should be plenty of car parking available when we are starting.
We will gather for a ride briefing at 8.15am for a 8.30am start. The ride will be around 24km in length and as for the hill itself, its not actually that hard, especially after the first third.
I have attached an example ride that someone else has put together. It is indicative of the ride route only and may change slightly on the day (ie using the road instead of the bike paths).
As always, a Tail End Charlie will be assigned to ensure that no one is left behind on their own.
The availability of bakeries on the day will be determined in due course!
