57km
BA
08:00 Over the range and down to the 'road to the outback'. Watch out for the semis! Toast the 'gallant four' randonneurs, who rode SA's first 1200. 600km to the end of the bitumen and back! Audacious for sure. If you’re lucky young Matt might tell you about it. N/A Map $11.00
206km
BRM
06:00 Same route as the long rides to Wilmington. But then turn left for a 'huff and puff' up to Horrocks Pass. Over the top and a little further, to gaze down on the gulf, and the glowing molten salt tower near Port Augusta. A great drive, a better ride! N/A Map $16.00
301km
BRM
06:00 As with the 400s, 600s and 1000 riders to Quorn. Then 'chase' the steam loco through the Pichi Richi pass. Pass the historic rail station on the way to the town wharf in Port Augusta. An 'adventure' and spectacular views along the infamous Spear Creek Road. N/A Map $21.00
402km
BRM
06:00 Almost identical to the 300s and 600s, but a bit less of Port Augusta. Eat, rest at Jamestown, and then the 'night-train' down to Crystal Brook. Watch out for the train! You will be crossing the Indian-Pacific line! N/A Map $26.00
603km
BRM
06:00 Two 300km loops. First loop the same as the 300s. A thrilling night descent (watch out for roos!) through Port Germein Gorge. Visit Port Pirie, but by-pass Crystal Brook and Redhill. An easy cruise back up the valley from Clare to the finish. N/A Map $36.00
1001km
BRM
06:00 Loop 1 Quorn, Port Augusta and Crystal Brook. Loop 2 Port Germein Gorge then south to Clare. Loop 3 The Monster Mine at Burra and quaint little Mintaro. Finally to Peterborough, and sneak through the 'ghost towns' of Terowie and Yarcowie! N/A Map $56.00
