Climb summary by PJAMM’s Brad Butterfield.
The Crafers Bikeway climb starts on the main throughway in and out of the city. So, for about a kilometer I rode on the sidewalk as the traffic is constant and there’s no shoulder or bike path. Once on the bike path, you’re cruisin’. The quality of that bike path is a real testament to the cyclist culture in Adelaide. They even had road workers doing repairs on the path the day I rode it. The climb itself never pitches up very aggressively. For most of the way, you’ll parallel the freeway and views are minimal. The last quarter of the climb enters a more residential area, and you even pass some wineries towards the top.
At kilometer 4.4 we turn right and pass under and to the south side of the freeway.
Most of the Bikeway follows Princes Highway and then Mount Baker Road.
View northwest toward Adelaide from kilometer 7.5.
Cleland National Park is to our left (north) for the final 3 kilometers of the climb. The park is named after famed Australian naturalist Sir John Burton Cleland, and includes a Wildlife Park that is a major tourist attraction in the Adelaide area.
Climb finish - intersection of Shurdington Road and Epiphany Place.
