Kapunda Come’n’Try Touring Weekend

Saturday & Sunday 27th & 28th April

Catch the train to Gawler (or meet us at the railway station) and ride 50 km of back roads to Kapunda on the Saturday. Camp or hire a cabin in the Caravan Park on Saturday night and return to Gawler on Sunday. Less than 45 km on both days on a mixture of dirt, gravel and bitumen roads. Sunday features a glorious gentle 30 km downhill roll to the Gawler Railway station. The full details are not yet finalised but it is expected to leave Gawler after a train arrival about 10:17 AM.

Less than 45 Km each day.

Catch the 9:21 Train from Adelaide arriving at Gawler Central at 10:17 (or meet at Gawler Central Railway Station at 10:17)

Return via train on Sunday. Bikes are free on the weekend.

I will be riding from Golden Grove to Gawler via Snake Gully (leaving at 7:30 AM) if anyone wants to join me (Cars can be left at my place).

Spare tents are available if you don’t have one (or you can stay in a cabin)

I intend to cook in the Caravan Park in front of the camp fire but takeaway or pub meals are available.

On Saturday bring lunch or buy at Freeling. Sunday bring lunch and morning tea.

Please ring on 0448 364 138 if you are coming (or email pdharrison (at) esc.net.au).

The idea of a Come’n’Try ride is to beg, borrow or steal any equipment you don’t have. An excellent introduction to cycle touring for the beginner but also an interesting weekend camp for the experienced  tourist.
