Have a look at Alexander Avenue, Evanston Park, out nearish Gawler.

I used to live on that road, it's about 5km long and has a brutal start...

but the best bit is that coming down, that brutal start is a brilliant finish - one I have cracked 101.3 kmph going down, well back when the speed limit was 100 kph, cough cough.
Keep flexing, spinning, rolling, coasting, pushing, pulling, drafting, sprinting, time trialling, touring, climbing, descending, hot dogging, crit-ing, racing, weaving, dodging, dropping, tanking, chasing... but most of all - just keep f'ing riding!

Hi.
Im really glad that this post is a sticky.
You guys dont know how freaking inspired I get reading this, and I have, over and over. I have sweated and cursed my way up a few of the climbs mentioned here, and even though I may be the slowest going up, I still feel like a KOM when I finally get there.
Thanks to all that have posted here.
