This is a decent length ride that you can bring your kids on.
Kids are welcome to ride either on their own bike, in a trailer or even on a tag-along bike.
The ride starts from the park on Aldinga Road in Willunga (the one with the old water tower)There is enough car parking for around 30 cars and a playground for the kids to play on whilst the adults make sure the bikes, trailers and tag alongs are in good working order for the ride. There are also toilets available at this start point.
Arrive at the park anytime after 9.00am for an 9.20am ride briefing and a 9.30am departure
The ride follows the Shiraz Trail to McLaren Vale. The actual route will be added in the next two weeks and may include some of the quieter backstreets to add a little distance
The track is undulating (ie. NOT flat) and will prove a good workout for most kids and for those adults who tow, so a reasonable level of fitness will be assumed.
The halfway point is the McLaren Vale visitors centre, which is able to provide refreshments and also had a playground for the kids. The halfway point is reached at approximately (to be advised). It is anticipated that there will be no longer than an hour spent at the Visitors Centre to recover.
We will return via the same route.
The expected time of return back at the start point is 12.00pm
All riders with a mechanically sound road or flat bar type bike (including mountain bike) and an approved helmet are welcome. It is advised that you ensure that your bikes and/or trailers, tag-alongs are in good working order prior to the day of the ride.
All adult riders ride at their own risk and are deemed responsible for any and all of the children they bring to the ride. It is advised to have public liability insurance, and to carry emergency contact details.
This will be my last organising of a group ride for a while, hope to see you there.
