Ride Details
The route is predominantly a beginner hill climber's ride starting in Gawler and finishing in Gawler.

After leaving Gawler, the ride follows the Barossa Valley Way passing through Sandy Creek and Lyndoch. The ride continues on to picturesque Williamstown, via Lyndoch Valley Rd, where it will be possible to have a short break.

The ride continues with a left turn onto Mount Crawford Rd, from Williamstown's main street, which soon becomes Warren Rd, climbing gradually upwards towards Warren Reservoir. Once the peak is reached the route is reversed, with a fast downhill run back to Williamstown's main street.

Leaving Williamstown via Yettie Rd, the route then continues onto Balmoral Rd and Calton Rd before the final downhill run to Gawler.


The Gawler Wheelers Group Ride Guidelines and Group Ride Recommendations must be read prior to attending a Group Ride Event.

Hi all. The Gawler weather forecast for Saturday morning is below fyi.

NB: In view of the forecast temp it is highly likely that the scheduled GW rides will be cancelled in line with our established GW Hot Weather Policy. The policy was put in place in the interests of riders health/safety, after wide member consultation...and research.

As per the policy (below) a final decision will be made tomorrow (Friday) after the BOM updates the forecast at 4.00pm. Members will be officially notified on this event page and via group email if the rides are cancelled. You will appreciate that in consideration of the well-being of all of our members we do not deviate from the Hot Weather Policy..
