Hi All,Grew up in Adelaide but never cycled there. Whats the best route from Crafers to Blackwood to Mitcham?Google Maps is suggesting as follows:Mt Lofty Summit Road, Waverley Ridge Road, Sheoak…Continue
"I'll use the Lynton/Belair track to ascend (ride MTB), it does have a section over 20% or at 20% for 200 to 300 metres or so. To come down, my preferred is through Belair NP and exiting by Sir Edwin Avenue to the bottom of Sheoak Rd. Then use…"

"Jilden, Forest Avenue is nowhere near Blackwood station. Do you East Terrace or Elm Street?
It depends where in Blackwood Chris want to go. If his goal is just to go through the Blackwood/Belair area to get back down to Mitcham, he might as well…"
"The route isn't bad but you can do a couple of detours. When you exit Belair National Park, go across Upper Sturt Rd to Pine Lodge Drive and left on Bermuda Way, a shared trail will take you along Minno Ck to near the eastern side of the…"
