ABC Wednesdays - Q for a Quiet Rural Ride

A quiet ride in the country - that is how I spent last Sunday. This shot was taken atop a hill; quite a steep uphill climb but followed by a rewarding quick descent.

We caught a train to Gawler (about 40 kms north of Adelaide), then rode to Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley along mainly unsealed roads and returned to Gawler via a minor sealed road; in all about 36kms.

The ABC Wednesday meme was initiated by Denise Nesbitt. To find out more about ABC Wednesdays and see other participants' contributions click here.

A perfect way to spend a Sunday. Love the reward of the Quick descent after the uphill ride.

I've been to Gawler but not by bike, cannot ride, so find it quicker by car!

It does seems like a very joyful ride. I have not been on the bike for a while, should get back on someday.
