Saturday 6th February First Ride from Goolwa

Saturday 6th March: Saturday Soar!
Yep, we’re soaring over Hindmarsh Bridge … there’s so much to see – first stop the Marina, with views over the Goolwa Channel, then it’s klonking over the boardwalks of Coorong Quays before heading out to the Murray Mouth for good coffee!  We’ll check out the tranquil and scenic northern section before heading back to Goolwa for lunch.  An optional side trip to the Goolwa Barrage (only an extra 5kms return) brings into focus the fascinating network of control mechanisms in place to separate salty ocean waters from the fresh-waters of the Murray!

Moderate gradients – bring lunch or BYO (Goolwa cafes have great food)

Helpful tips: Allow an hour-and-half’s drive if coming from central Adelaide

The Southern Expressway is quickest, with turn-off left to Goolwa just after passing through Mt Compass. Meet 10am at the carpark near Goolwa Wharf on Pub Corner Road (turn left at the end of Cutting Road) under Hindmarsh Bridge, Goolwa.
