H Cove to McLaren Vale via the Veloway/ S. Exy for coffee/brekky , up Willunga Hill along The Range and descend Wickhams. continue on to Meadows, Mylor, Aldgate Valley Rd, work my way through Upper Sturt back home, or descend the Freeway to the Bay for coffee and a beach ride home. Something along those lines, route varies a little depending on who I'm riding with.
Kuota Kharma, Fuji Altamira and an MTB thingy.

Too many to mention, but a low traffic one I like is :

Belair Rd (early morning), down through Blackwood and Craigburn (?), up Acland Hill, down to Clarendon and back. Eraly on a Sat/Sun morning - BUGGER all traffic, and nice hills.

Starting in Flagstaff Hill, Main Rd up and then down into Clarendon. Out to Meadows, Ashbourne down Bull Creek. Up to the Goolwa road. Left or right depending on the distance I am looking for. Back through Strath, Macclesfield, Meadows, Clarendon, Main Road.

It's a good ride out to Meadows, Echunga, Macclesfield and back. Or Echunga, Hahndorf, Crafers, Sturt Valley.

Plenty of hills, some good flat sections. Excellent all round. Not to busy if you start at 7am. Often ride out to Mac Vale as well.

Gavin

PS Doing Meadows, Ashbourne, Strath and back in the morning, comes out at just over 100k. All welcome, PM me for the meeting point No one gets left behind, just like the Marines..... :mrgreen:

http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/27448254 up to crafers via Eagle park.

http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/27448590 Crafers to Strath.

It's 50k from the start of the Freeway. I think that's well doable in a day even going really steady. Lots is downhill saving your legs a fair bit.
