Below are a selection of photos taken on the South Australian Recreational Cycling Club’s Tour of the Southern Ports towns of Kingston SE, Cape Jaffa, Robe and Beachport – 12 to 14 March 2019.
This is a test to see how well this layout works. The photos were downsized so that the long edge was 720 pixels long. If you would like to add your photos to this report, please e-mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org
On the way to Kingston SE, we stopped off at Langhorne Creek for a ride to Milang for a late morning coffee/early lunch. We had some other riders, who joined us for this ride. Photo taken by Geoffrey.
The next day (Tuesday), we rode from Kingston SE to Cape Jaffa. Here we are having lunch in the Town Hall after riding into a head wind most of the way. Photo taken by Geoffrey.
Having Battled a headwind to ride from Kingston SE to Cape Jaffa, the ride back was a breeze, with a strong tail wind. Hence the smiles as we re-grouped before hitting the highway back to Kingston. Photo Taken by Geoffrey.
After returning from Cape Jaffa, we inspected the Kingston Analematic Sundial and Sculpture Park. Photo Taken by Paul.
This is one of the many cycle tracks in Kingston SE. Photo Taken by Paul.
The next day (Wednesday) we drove to Robe and after a meandering ride we stopped at Mahalia Coffee for coffee and cake. Photo taken by Geoffrey.
We then rode up to the Robe Obelisk. The fence around the Obelisk is needed as there is the danger of falling off the cliffs. One day the Obelisk might fall off itself! Photo taken by Geoffrey.
All of us. This photo was taken near the Robe Obelisk by a passer by.
We continued along a shared path and had another view of the Robe Obelisk. Photo taken by Paul
Then it was off again, with more coastal scenery. Photo taken by Paul.
After the coastal path, we made our way to the Beacon Hill Reserve Lookout. Here we are about to head for the hill. Photo taken by Paul.
From the lookout, some of us had a go at about 500m of single-track through the bush. Photos taken by Paul.
Back in town, we walked beside paperbark trees next to Lake Fox as the sand was loose. Photo taken by Paul.
The next day (Thursday) we drove to Beachport and rode to the base of the Cape Martin Lighthouse. From here, it was a short walk through the sand-hills to a viewing platform, where another group photo was taken by Geoffrey.
We then headed to the car park of Wooley Lake. Ten of us rode around the lake and walked up to the lookout. Photo taken by Paul.
The other nine who rode around Wooley Lake. Photo taken by Paul
On the way back from Wooley Lake, I jokingly said that there was an option to ride on Lake George. Some took me seriously, so here is a view looking forward and back showing the other six who took up the challenge! Photos taken by Paul.
The next day (Friday), we drove home, after a successful tour.
