Strathalbyn 22 Aug 2010:

Draft route map of Grand Slam #4: 75/150kms

I am doing both loops 158 kms and planning to complete 5 hours 30 mins - 6 hours

with all the great riding in the Adelaide Hills it beggars belief that both the TDU and BikeSA keep sending innocent cyclists anywhere near Milang...its never a nice place to ride a bike. Even on a warm, sunny, windless day it will kill you with boredom.

Unfortunately Me and my friend missed the 2nd left in Milang and continued on through Langhorne Creek without thinking "Geez, where is everyone!"

It added another 17kms to the first lap, so by the time we got back to Strath. we decided to call it a day! Wonderful day for riding tho! Will have to study the map a bit better b4 next time!
