Edwins Bicycle Tour Downunder
Wednesday, 31 January 2007
Wednesday 31 January. Wednesday Wanderers Ride. Adelaide to Mclaren Vale.

Today weather started overcast but soon cleared by mid-morning to blue skies for the rest of the day and temperatures up to 29C.

We had breakfast round the corner and then brought the bikes down from the rooms in the lifts. We put panniers on at the front of the Hotel. An office worker stopped to chat and was surprised we were cycletouring and staying at such a plush Hotel. We told him we liked to end a days ride in style.

The days ride involved a lot of meandering on coastal bike paths. We started heading SW from the centre on a bike lane on a main road to the coast at Glenelg where we had elevenses at a caf? on the Prom. Then a bike path down the Prom to Brighton where we cycled up the pier which didn't have any no cycling signs. On the pier there was a pram with 2 little dogs wearing hats.

We stopped on Brighton's Beach for a paddle, picnic lunch and sunbathe. The 2 Peters went up the road to the Yacht Club for lunch.

We went on down the coast to Seacliff, Noararlunger and a cyclepath along a clifftop to Seaford. Then a really good cyclepath across country inland direct to our plush motel (again) at Mclaren Vale the centre of a wine area.

In the evening Martin and Peter T had a good local wine called Oomoo together with fish and chips!!

33 miles for the day and 1174ft of climbing .
