Leave the carpark and travel along Rankine Street, turn left into South Terrace then right onto Langhorne Creek Road, travel several kilometres and turn right onto Milang Road and travel to Milang.

As you enter Milang turn left into Luard Street then right into Clayton-Milang Road to Sails at Clayton Bay for a coffee stop and re-group.

 When you leave Clayton, you will along Finniss-Clayton Road, then turn left into Winery Road then turn left and onto Goolwa-Alexandrina Road (main road) and ride into Goolwa.

We will regroup at the Caltex service station in main street, petrol available in Goolwa if required to top up the tanks.

Then we ride to the Goolwa Wharf for their Sunday market. Parking is not organised, it is up to us to find a place as there is nothing arranged for us.

At the Goolwa Markets you will have the chance for a walk about, shop and have your lunch break at the same time or walk up the street to the Corio Hotel for a counter lunch, your call.

The return journeyWe travel  back along the Goolwa-Alexandrina Road (main road), turn right into Winery Road to the junction with Finniss–Clayton Road and turn left towards Finniss to the junction with the Finniss-Milang Road, then you will turn right and travel towards Milang on Finniss—Milang Road to the junction with Nine Mile road, you turn left and travel to Strathalbyn and back to Rankin Street where we started. Total distance to Goolwa and return is approx 115kms.

All roads are bitumen and back roads with minimal traffic. The most important aspect of this ride it that it is flat riding country. There will be no stress on the rider of his motorcycle. You can sit back rest and cruise along at your own pace.

Veteran and Vintage Flat tankers, girder fork bikes and tiddlers riders, this is your chance to bring them out for that spring jaunt.
