Mount Lofty to Willunga

Postby ab012 » Mon Dec 08, 2014 4:41 pm

Hi everyone

Coming down to Adelaide next week with a friend and we are thinking about doing a ride from the Adelaide up to Mount Lofty (with perhaps some detours) then follow the ridge line(?) to Willunga (and then back via to the city via the Veloway.)

We are aiming to do this midweek - so the question is - any thoughts/suggestions on whether traffic is ok on the section from Mount Lofty to Willunga? Exploring this route on Strava came up with plenty of rides like this (e.g. http://www.strava.com/activities/38679776) although they were mostly done around TDU so car considerations is perhaps quite different. I will hate to find out its too dangerous half way through the ride :(

Any thoughts welcome! (other suggestions would be great too!)

I would get off Kangarilla Rd and do Bakers Gully/Blewitt Springs Rd. The Veloway is a bit tricky to navigate with diversions around Beach Rd but do-able with care.
