Up in the Boondocks (2021)

Get out there. Get away from it all. Get a bit of dirt in your tread. Most of the rides in this series could be done with a hybrid/cyclo-cross bike on 35s. But front shockers would be easier on the body, and the bike, and safer for the Rabbit and the Roo.

StartDetailsMax RidersMapCost
07:30 The Dingo (41% dirt) - An easy gravel grinder group ride around greater Elizabeth. A scenic, relaxing experience, exploring three of the creeks running down from the nearby hills, and a few quiet back streets. N/AMap$6.00
07:30 The Rabbit (41% dirt) - The views, the forest tranquillity and the abundant wildlife are worth the huff and puff. If you see a human in the forest then count yourself unlucky. You should have it all to yourself. A special place for sure! N/AMap$6.00
07:30 The Roo (44% dirt) - Once onto the fire tracks, The Roo follows almost the same route as The Rabbit. But after Kersbrook it takes you across some interesting dirt roads to Forreston in the next valley. Bassnet Road a highlight on the way home. N/AMap$6.00
07:30 The Red Fin (41% dirt) – A gravel grinder loop to Tanunda and back. A scenic ride through the heart of the Barossa Valley. Enjoy the Barossa's quiet back roads, away from the noisy highway. The best way to enjoy the Barossa - on your bike, on the dirt! N/AMap$6.00
07:30 The Stumpy Tail (40% dirt) - Follows the same route as the Red Fin, to Tanunda, and then goes on to explore some interesting back roads between Angaston and Truro, and between Truro and Seppeltsfield. N/AMap$6.00
07:30 The Blue Tongue (40% dirt) - Keeps Stumpy Tail company to Truro, then continues to Eudunda. A great 30km long down-hill run back to Ebeneezer. The lights of Adelaide will guide you home, as you pedal over the crests south of Seppeltsfield. N/AMap$6.00
