Best roads in Adelaide & Regions On the basis of another thread, I thought Iâ€™d ask my SA cousins which roads they thought are the best. My top 3 (realised I've actually listed 4, getting greedy...) roads/routes based on my current knowledge of the hills are as follows: 1. Lobethal to Norton Summit, via Ashford â€“ lots of hairpins, s-bends and uphill/downhill sections you can throw your bike around :grin: . Grin from ear-to-ear after that one... even on a smaller bike. :grin: 2. Gorge Road, with detour up the corkscrew. Big sweeping bends on a wide road, high speed jinxes, generally great visibility, but Iâ€™ve seen a lot of bikes on the back of tow trucks up hereâ€¦ and the occasional cop . On a downside, this can also be â€œbusyâ€ with either slow traffic or the odd Porsche Cayenne tailgating you as they think theyâ€™re in a 911 and should be in frontâ€¦. apologies if I've held you up on the NSR by the way! 3. Strathalbyn to Stirling (backroads via Echunga) â€“ sweeping bends on a narrowish road, nice scenery, not a lot of traffic to worry about. Couple of nice places to stop as well, but more importantly, can do a few â€œlapsâ€ in an hour. Heaps good! 4. Another eastern suburbs escape - Montacute road via Cherryville. Nice little twisty section going up the escarpment. Hardly any traffic!! What have I missed? What should I ride? What about further afield? Cape Jervis to Waitpinga is fun too, but a bit far away compared to a blast to the summitâ€¦. The not so good roads? Any city centre road - pedestrians not looking as they cross the road, taxi's doing what taxi's do, busses runnning the red lights like they don't apply to them, everyone stressed trying to get home..... :evil: Anzac highway â€“ parked cars in the inside lane (on a frickinâ€™ main road ), left hand turns at the last minute from the outside lane etc etc. :evil: Any of the suburbs with roundabouts â€“ deemed to be straight roads by most drivers :roll: . Cross at own risk.
