Ride Details
An extreme hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.

After leaving Gawler, the climbing starts almost immediately with the steady rise of Sunnyside Drive followed by Alexander Ave with its multiple steep gradients. From the top of Alexander Ave, the Gawler-One Tree Hill Rd provides a few fast/slow undulations before the downhill run to the Humbug Scrub cross roads.

The long steady climb of the One Tree Hill-Kersbrook Rd takes the rider up and over the 500m peak above Mt Crawford Forest followed by the fast descent into Kersbrook. The ride continues on towards Williamstown via South Para Rd for a short distance before the climbing starts again at Hill Rd, eventually reaching Forreston Rd. Exiting Forreston via the infamous Checker Hill Rd provides another climb before the downhill run to South Para Rd and Kersbrook.

The return ride to Gawler starts in Kersbrook with more climbing to overcome the peak above Mt Crawford, for the second time, followed by the long fast descent to the familiar Humbug Scrub cross roads. Only one section of climbing remains until Kentish Rd is reached and the start of the final downhill run into Gawler which completes the ride.


The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.
