This ride has been on the bucket list for several years now & after our rained out attempt in February 2012 where we were forced to change direction & head east to Morgan for drier tracks, my fourth attempt of this ride is finally becoming a reality despite more unseasonal midweek downpours in the clay soiled area. After "tweeking the route" due to recent heavy rain mid week, these are things you're unlikely to now see .................. My plan is to ride NW of Gawler, zig zagging up through Stockyard Creek & easterly to the Grasshopper Roadhouse in Tarlee to catch up with a couple of riders at 9am. Then north west towards Salter Springs, Port Henry Hotel historical site & Halbury over some more "interesting tracks" . With PeasantFarmer's generous offer of guidance from Halbury over some "TDM friendly" lesser known & private tracks en route to Hoyleton/Spring Gully, with a special tour of the old stone goods shed at Hoyleton, before heading into Sevenhill around 11.30am for brunch/lunch at The Little Red Grape Bakery adjacent the Sevenhill Pub. After lunch I will be refueling at the Caltex just north up the road towards Clare and heading east through Dodgey's "Cow Country" to the Tothill Ranges & zig zagging the gaps in the ranges in a southerly direction & past Stockport and back into Gawler. For you lot who have decided to follow me, your cornermen are gunna be busy ............................... and about 350+ kms under the belt, plus another 50+ for the southerners.
