Hi All South Aussies.
We are bunch of 5 coming down from Brissie to participate and have a bit of fun at the TDU and the ride. We are staying in a cottage at Norwood which looks to be pretty centrally located and looks great. Got everything pretty well covered except the transport back from VH. There is the option of the bus but as we like to see places we visit we thought we would stay a little longer in VH. So, is there any other way of getting back to Adelaide such as a train service or any other options? I am guessing not as it looks pretty remote.
The ride back through the hills is quite nice.
There is a decent route coming back via Clarendon and Blackwood which will lead you to New Belair Road and straight into Norwood

Veni, Vidi, Vespa -- I Came, I Saw, I Rode Home
if you ride back you would end up doing 250+km
my understanding is that the advertised shuttle service is pretty good
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.
If you decide to stay VH extra day there is a bus service to city 3x daily. Google premier bus lines. Bikes would be excess baggage though.

Hey staying in VH and riding back the next day is a great idea! Guess the only drawback is carrying your undies/change of clothes/ evening gown for Friday night. VH is a seaside town with a few pubs and informal eateries so maybe you could get away with cycling kit st the dinner table
Try the Harbar while in victor harbour... Classy little upstairs tapas/cocktail bar in the Main Street.... Or if u want something I little more relaxed, Ninos is the local pizza & pasta / cyclist cafe opposite the finish... Both run by the same (cyclist) fella....
We are also coming over from Vic, and are chasing a bit of info on that first climb Glen Ormand to Stirling. Anyone know the max gradient and how long it goes for?
2012 Trek Madone 6.9ssl= 6.3kg.
2011 BMC SLR01 Team Machine ... Now 6.4kg and steady.

U will find all of Adelaide's climbs on there... The old freeway climb to crafers is pretty achievable even for once a year riders... Crafers to Stirling is a little up n down (rolling), but pretty easy to get to...
Thinking there may well be a "Couriers Please" type service between VH and ADL that would be able to transport a suitcase full of clothes etc for not too much money such that you have all you need in VH for the overnighter and have your stuff back at the cottage when/after you get back there. And if there is a family owned courier then the service could well be even better. Just a thought......
