Ride Details
The route is predominantly a hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.

After leaving Gawler, the ride joins onto the Gawler Bypass before linking up with the Gawler-Kapunda Rd. A right turn at Roseworthy Rd leads to a short section of the Sturt Hwy before the undulations of Gomersal Rd continue the ride towards Tanunda.

A right turn onto Basedow Rd from Tanunda's main street leads to Light Pass Rd and another right turn onto the steep climb of Menglers Hill Rd, which is ridden until the KOM point is reached.

Retracing the route back to the Barossa Valley Way via Tanunda begins the return journey, passing through Lyndoch and onto Cockatoo Valley via Gilbert St and Pimpala Rd.

A right turn onto Williamstown Rd followed by a quick left turn onto Pink Gum Drv, then another quick left turn onto The Barracks, returns the route to Balmoral Rd.

The route then continues along Balmoral Rd and Calton Rd before the final downhill run to Gawler.


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

Hi to all of my Gawler Wheelers family,

In just over four weeks I roll out on a ride of 350km in three days ... Starts 17 Oct, I have paid my entry fee in full, so all of your donations will go straight to supporting the great work of the Adelaide Crows Children's Foundation.
The 2016 Redline Classic will again head to the Barossa for 3 days and 350 kilometres of cycling bliss.

With two days based in the town of Tanunda our riders will experience the region once again on a course where completion is challenging but achievable.

Donations can be made at:
