Kadina to Wallaroo

A few weeks ago I was bikepacking / touring and by trying to avoid the main roads came across a nice bike track just on the outskirts of Kadina . It looked like it was heading in the right direction towards Wallaroo so I "jumped " on it and yes it did come out at Wallaroo ..Very nice bike track , very new , no white lines , no signage . Has anyone ridden on it or know if it has a name  ? …See More

Pete, there are different ways of promoting cycling: reporting hazards, bike co-op and organising rides. Yesterday I did the twilight ride of 35km, plus my ride there and back. Currently I do not cycle far or fast.
