I'm thinking of taking 4-5 days off to cycle the Fleurieu.
Had in mind doing about 80-100kms per day, with panniers, but probably staying in B&B rather than camping. Maybe roughly Adelaide to Strath, Goolwa, Normanville, McLaren Vale, Adelaide, avoiding main roads.
To save me the effort of working out a good, relatively quiet route, with overnight stops at good locations, anyone know of a site or book which has recommended cycling routes for such a tour.
Alternatively, any suggestions for good cycling roads and good value cyclist friendly accommodation welcome.
Either Belair, Blackwood or Glenalta station will drop you near the park, it actually makes little difference overall. Belair is easiest to navigate. Then after going through the park you can possibly use Sturt Valley Rd to get to Stirling. Mind you, there's still plenty of hills to go up!
If memory serves me right I was advised to get off the train at Corromandel Valley, make my way via Red Road, right into Main Road, left into Clarendon Road, left into Potter Road, left into Kangarilla Road, just after you've turned into Kangarill Road watch out for the narrow bridge, the supermarket supply trucks will squeeze you here as they are at a high speed, through Kangarilla, left into Dashwood Gully Road, through Meadows, Macclesfield Road then right into Adelaide Goolwa road and left into Paris Creek road, through Paris Creek and on to Strathalbyn. At the time I did this ride I was headed for Murray Bridge via Wellington, the bike was unladen (apart from me) but I found the roads undulating rather than particularly hilly once you are on Clarendon Road
