"The most common thing to hold up cars is of course, cars. Not that they blame themselves as being part of blocking kilometres of road twice a day."

"+1. early morning, no problems at all, after that...forget it.I hate coming down the road though, if I have to use it downtrack, I will always wait till it clear of cars etc, or pull over.   This is the favourite road for hills people as the…"

"The Ricer boys prefer the route with less speed cameras. If you try to do the speed limit up Greenhill at around 10pm you usually have a gaggle of them inches off your back bumper. When I used to ride to Mt Lofty Summit late on hot summer nights…"

""- Fairly steep gradient (around 10-13% for most of it)." I think it's more like 6-8%, but strava is down now so I can't check. 10-13 would be corkscrew road nightmare-tier."

"The time of day I ride GH (between 5.30-7am) I seldom see more than 2-3 cars, so traffic is a non issue for me. Firstly I ride it for variation from the others, plus it's the best training climb near Adelaide. At a constant 6-7% for around 30…"

why ride up greenhill road?

I know this is going to spark a flaming war but really, why ride up Greenhill road when there are so many other safer, equally beautiful, roads into the hills?We (see I included myself) just hold up the traffic which doesn't do any of us any good.
