The Gov map shop on Richmond road at Netly sells the CFS map book for aroung $50-

It has every track between the cape and Eudunda over about 50 pages.
It is an odd size, probably to stop people copying it , and wont fit it to a small tank bag.

The Hema Handy map will , and has most of the unsealed roads on it on too. Around $ 20- from newsagencys or direct from Hema.
The SA Tourist Brochures have good maps in them too , and are free.

I like the RAA maps. They do not last too long after being folded to fit in the map holder, but they are free if you are a member. Seem to have most of the accessible roads on them.

Sucessfull First Decent Ride!!

Hi Guys,

Well we headed out on our first adventure ride on the Australia Day Holiday Monday morning. Managed to turn what is normally a quick trip from Adelaide to Mannum into a 90% Dirt 4 hour adventure.

Amazing how within a few minuets of leaving Adelaide you can be on relativley deserted dirt roads! Some of which can definatly be likened to riding on marbels on a unicycle, however all incidents were averted!!



Then the big change from the leafy trails of the Adelaide Hills as it gradually drys out and flattens out onto the plains of the Malley Country!


We then tackled the access track that follows the old railroad that runs north from Murray Bridge. Now that gets pretty sandy and rocky in a few sections....a few nervous moments were had trying to tame the soft sand that’s for sure!! The brain says lean back and open her up the nerves say no way!!!

After this we headed for Mannum for some refreshments then headed back to Adelaide via the black stuff for a Webber lunch!! All in all a fantasitc first trip out for some newbies!!


A great way to spend a day in the brilliant part of the world…


Still a bit of mist in the hills in the early morning

Welcome BushMatt

Well done 27rich & BushMatt for sharing your enjoyment

I think CharlieW will be getting over excited with the "Domi" domination around at the moment.


I'm another for the "free" RAA maps, not all tracks are on them, but those that are make for some interesting & enjoyable riding & suit the TDM & mid sized bikes just fine.

Hope to catch up for some rides soon.

Currently been doing a recce for another Fleurieu ride within a few weeks if anyone is interested.

Cheers
