Echunga is the last of 5 rides in the Grand Slam Challenge Series
Echunga is the last of five rides from the Gland Slam Challenge Series. Hosted by BikeSA, you will find five recreational challenge rides throughout the Adelaide Hills, Barossa Valley and Fleurieu Peninsula. You can choose to ride in one, two, three, four or all five of the rides, with each consecutive ride gradually becoming more challenging. Each of the rides combines 2 different loops of between 40km and 100km, all starting and finishing in the one location. For those who are looking for something a little less challenging, you can sign up for the Mini Slam in which you complete only the one loop.
The Gland Slam Challenge Series is perfect for cyclists who want to build their fitness and increase their endurance. It’s also a great excuse to get out regularly and to meet up with like-minded people!
The organiser, BikeSA, is a not for profit organisation, independent of government, who promote all types of cycling and is focused on improving riding condition in SA.
The Echunga ride is the last in the Gland Slam Challenge Series. It starts at Echunga, which is located 34km east of Adelaide, in the Adelaide hills.
There are two distances. The route is a 100km loop, and you can choose to do either 1 loop ie 100km or 2 loops ie 200km. Being October, it is starting to warm up, with days up to 20 degrees! You might expect some rain at this time of year.
