<span class="s1">I used to take this ride route a lot when riding home from the CBD. After climbing up Belair Road, head for Sheoak Road, but don’t climb it - now that’s a brute of a climb and should only be tempted with anger! Instead, enter the National Park on your right, by going through a small gate and over the railway line, then meander your way through the national park, around the lake and then up the guts of the park - feel the stress of day to day life fizzle away and enjoy catching a glimpse of an emu or roo. At the end of the park there’s a short and sharp climb that sees you pop out onto Upper Sturt Road where you will turn left. After 1km, turn right along Sturt Valley Road which along the valley floor has been resurfaced and widened and is one of the nicest roads going around! This then climbs up to behind Stirling where you can then decide to push on to Mount Lofty or head down the Old Freeway.</span>

<span class="s1">So there you have it - 3 great ride routes that are a little outside the norm, but I’m sure you will love. Of course you can ride yourself along the beach front, but hey - you can do that in any city!</span>
