Mar 6, 2016 - Tanunda to McLaren Vale

We packed up and left Tanunda. Sandy and Ian drove in one car. Margaret and Stephen took their car. Roman, Helen and I rode our bikes. It was a really nice ride to Gawler. Mostly downhill on bike paths for 30km. Hadn't realised how up hill it must have been on the ride there the other day!!! We got to Gawler and stopped for a coffee. Well I had a gelato.

Feb 7, 2010 - Wine Valley Heaven - McLaren Vale SA

To limber up the legs I went for a run along the Torrens river on a great cycle path close to Helen's house. Once again - fantastic resource to encourage people to cycle or walk. After breakfast what better way to while away a Sunday afternoon than a visit to a number of wineries and linger over a long lunch?? Southern Australia produces the majority of Australian wines.
