Amy’s Ride | Adelaide to McLaren Vale | 6 Nov 2016

Amy's Ride

Help the Amy Gillet Foundation make the roads safer for cyclists.

This event has rides catering for all abilities for the thousands of riders that take part every year. You can challenge yourself to a gruelling 125km, or take part in a leisurely 12km pedal. It’s up to you!

The Grande takes riders up Old Willunga Hill twice. Yes, if you want to test yourself like the professionals, you can double up on the ride’s biggest challenge ever (time limits apply).

If you don’t get out of bed for anything less than 100km and you quite like the idea of riding the Southern Expressway as well as having a crack at the famous Willunga Hill, then you’re in luck, because this ride’s for you. This ride explores the Fleurieu from coast to hills!

If riding the Southern Expressway is thrilling enough and you’re not really a hill-climbing person, then the 70km option is the go. Factor in some picturesque coastal roads – plus a well-earned glass of the local drop and some fine food at the finish – and you have yourself the perfect ride.


Riders young and old can join the masses along the Southern Expressway for the 35km option – including O’Halloran Hill at the beginning of the expressway. Before you know it you’ll finish at McLaren Vale, triumphant in the sun.


The Southern Expressway starts with a challenging hill climb. If you would prefer not to ride it, you may instead start at the top of the hill! You can still ride along the Southern Expressway, but from its intersection with Majors Road, O’Halloran Hill. This cuts out 5km from the total distance, and makes for an easy start.

The Shiraz Trail takes riders from McLaren Vale to Willunga and back along a sealed off-road path, passing vineyards producing world-class McLaren Vale wine. This ride is perfect for families with young children.

The Family Shiraz Trail ride is free for kids and only $15 for adults. Following the ride, there will be live music, wine tastings, food stalls, a bouncing castle, free face painting and more at Serafino Wines, McLaren Vale.
