It was suggested by a friend to go for a mid week ride up to national park.

We initially planed to go Tuesday morning but the weather was grey and I couldn't even see the hills.

For those of you who are geographically challenged Belgium is a long way from Adelaide.

A quick phone call and we rescheduled for Wednesday.

Wednesday came and there was even some sunshine.

We rode to Belair via Flinders University and some side streets.

Eventually we arrived at national park and we stopped by the lake for a comfort stop it seems the ducks have gone on holidays for the winter.

On to Queen's Jubilee Drive and it seems it has had a lot of work done to upgrade it.

It was a peaceful ride along the track and I saw 3 koalas and even another cyclist!

We had some lunch in the park and home via old Belair road to get home just after 2:00pm

With the wisdom on hindsight I think we managed to get the best time for a ride,

Queen's Jubilee Drive is one of my favourite ascents in the Adealide Hills. The last time I rode up, the trucks involved in the upgrade were still on the job at 4.50pm as I came through. The track was officially closed but I wasn't interested in the bitumen climb and hoped the workers had knocked off already! I wonder what 100mm or more of rain has done to the track, it's certainly been wet at Crafers.

The track seems to follow the slope of the hill so very little water should form puddles or run along gutters formed between the track and the hill with the classic way of building tracks.

It will be interesting to see how it holds up.
