Cycling in Australia - South Australia (Chapter)
This is the South Australia chapter from Lonely Planet's Cycling Australia guidebook.
South Australia might well be the country's cycling heartland. Home to Australia's only Pro Tour event and its finest long-distance mountain biking route, this great state could have been created by a cycling god. How else to explain the pancake-flat plains of Adelaide and its suburbs?
- watch for whales as you cycle past The Bluff
- swap wheels for wines through Seppeltsfield
- transport and accommodation
- whoosh down Gorge Rd as you descend back towards Adelaide from Birdwood
Coverage includes: Planning, Mountain Bike Rides, Getting to/from the Ride, Wines & Climbs, Fleurieu Peninsula, Adelaide, Victor Harbor, McLaren Vale, Towns & Facilities.
