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!
