New FB Group....Mountain Bike Touring Adelaide

HelloThis group is dedicated to Off Road Mountain bike touring in Adelaide. While other groups focus more on Downhill and technical MTBing, this group is more for those who want to take things a bit slower to take in the surrounding scenery. For those that like "Gravel Grinding" , there's hundreds of great off road trails, tracks, and paths to explore. Dedicated to MTB, Hybrids and Cyclecross.Of course, it doesnt mean all the routes are easy.  Some are dirt roads, fire tracks, single tracks. …See More

Mountain bike ride Barossa Valley backroads Lyndoch - Tanunda - Lyndoch

Hi AllGreat little bike ride taking in the backroads doing a loop between Lyndoch and Tanunda.Including Rowland Flat, Krondorf and Bethany  Perfect weather and great to see the vines havent lost all their leaves yet. The colours were amazing.  Attached is the route map which was using approx 80% gravel roads. Shorter loop option of 23km is good for more casual riders by turning left on the Barossa rd and heading back to Lyndoch form end of Tweedie Gully rdSurface was excellent in most parts.…See More

Great mountain bike ride few weekends ago. starting from Mt Crawford Forest HQ. Rode around Mt Crawford from the south and, perhaps illegally, crossed some land to get to Police Paddock rd which takes you thru the Gap. Council Maps web page shows a public access route, but couldnt find a visible track.  Onto Mount Rd and up the lovely fire tracks in Wirra Wirra peaks. Lucky to have my map to find the less steep parts. Onto Blockers rd for a hard slog on the Heysen trail linking up to Ross…
