three muskateers hit the road at midday and hit it hard (ignorance is bliss - knowledge is power), starting up Education Road (2.7km - peak gradient 16% - average 6.1%) ... pain early followed by a fast descent into Clarendon - drivers yelling "your doing 70" from car windows - Trippo finds cassette bearing trouble - where is the mechanic . Baker's Gully, rolling hills (one 17% descent!), fast flats in tight formation, Chapel Hill Cellar door stop, glorious vineyards and good conversation ... finally McLaren Vale and South Road and a road-side rendevous with the Doc (smokkelette "Fred" drives home) before Old Noarlunga, head winds, banana stories and Lonsdale en route to Hallett Cove - another Skipper short-cut adds 3-4 kms and some hills before the Kidd splits for out-laws birthday at Hallett Cove ...
total distance 60-65km
average speed 22.4 (top speed 70+)
total ride time 2:40
we started together and finished together !!!
