We had 8 riders today, on this hilly route (5 rated climbs) , and for me it was my first ride since I burnt my hand ( Kitchen accident ), so I was a little unsure how I would fair on this trip.
We started by ascending Alexandra drive, which is a fairy steep climb on cold legs, but then were were soon into rolling hills, and heading towards Kersbrook. We had a few welcome stops at the crests of the hills we encountered to let the tail enders catch up, then we headed round Foreston and headed up the back end of Checker Hill Road, which is tough, but not nearly as tough as the other way.
Home was back the same route, although we took Kentish Road for the final decent.
As always, Coffee was good at Jaspers. and what's more, it was free, as we had got the the magical number of 20+ members riding on the two optioned rides set by Gawler Wheelers.
Good day out today :)
