I would like to come along on this ride, but I don't know the area too well.
Could someone please post a map here, or even a street address that I could look up in my directory?
(I mean to the carpark that you are going to meet at)

Thanks, and I will see you there.

The carpark is on the corner of seaview rd & the southern end of the esplanade at Henley beach south.

Hope we see you there.

I'm sure the actual route is probably a bit different, but from the description I made a rough map:

A wee bit different but that's essentially the triangle - very few roads in my route and I'm certainly no fan of playing on main roads :wink:

Pretty much beach front all the way to just past the Glenelg North marina, then turn up to the Pat, across the barrages and some back streets to the very end of the Sturt River path. Skips Anzac Highway and the lunatics in Glenelg itself all together. Similarly, I'm no fan of Port Road in front of Coca-cola so I go through Bonython Park itself. The only sticking point might be the new overpass on Henley Beach Rd - you could get through there on a path when I was there a few weeks back but it is a construction area and things keep changing.

I like my rides relaxed and seeing it's out first time together, we'll keep it that way (the request WAS for a 'casual' ride.

Hmm, I'd better start loading the van. See you all there :D

Damnit. I got held up going through the city and by the time I made it to Henley everyone had left :(

I ended up doing a quick Linear Park run and heading home.

Oh well...I'll be better organised next time.

Yup, we need to do another one. Someone with a good route and a useful day, put it up and we'll be there :D

Do you want to meet in the city & head up the linear trail this time? then maybe do a loop back on the road??

That sounds good.

We could leave from the city, go up one side of the Torrens, to the bottom of Gorge rd. and down the other, or up the O-Bahn to TTP or a combination of both.

We could decide on the day.
