Kangaroo Island – An Awesome Place to Ride

What island has a really unoriginal name, is really easy to get too, and is absolutely amazing?

Well unfortunately I can’t tell you that because it is a surprisingly well kept secret, but I would strongly recommend looking at the title of this post.

As you’ve probably worked out, I recently spent 2 days riding from Adelaide to Cape Jervis and 8 days riding around Kangaroo Island camping in caravan parks and national parks and council campgrounds. Some of these campgrounds have hot showers, while some are pretty basic without water sources. The roads around Kangaroo Island are a mix of great sealed roads and unsealed roads that range from well made gravel to white limestone and sand constructions which makes the days variable and fun. Anyway that is probably enough of a summary of facts. Here is a list of links to the days of my trip each one will eventually be linked to a full description of the day and a collection of the best photos.

Day 1: Glenelg to Aldinga Beach (58km)

Day 2: Aldinga to Cape Jervis and Penneshaw (64km)

Day 3: Penneshaw to Murray Lagoon (62km)

Day 4: Murray Lagoon to Seal Bay (41km)

Day 5: Seal Bay to West KI Caravan Park (57km)

Day 6: Rest Day (Remarkable Rocks) (51km)

Day 7: West KI to Stokes Bay (85km)

Day 8: Stokes Bay to Kingscote (58km)

Day 9: Kingscote to Brown Beach (57km)

Day 10: Browns Beach to Penneshaw via Cape Willoughby (56km)
