Day 2 – Port Vincent to Edithburgh

This is undoubtedly this most cosmopolitan part of the Southern Yorke Peninsula Tour. We start at Port Vincent and visit the towns of Stansbury, Wool Bay, Coobowie and Edithburgh.

The morning segment of the ride did have some lovely cliff top views, but also involved some riding along the Highway. Fortunately only a very small part of it was on the Highway. Other parts were on a gravel track next to the highway,

The morning segment finished at Stansbury where we ate at the excellent Dalrymple Hotel. I would highly recommend a stop here.

The PM part of the ride involved a ride on good quality dirt roads that connect to the Klein Point mine, good quality bitumen into Wools Bay and next to Port Giles. You can ride on the track next to the road near Port Giles it is a bit hit and miss. The road seems to be pretty quiet. But this wouldn’t be guaranteed during harvest.

If you need some retail therapy there is Barachel Alpacas.

The final part from Coobowie to Edithburgh is nice off-road path through the scrub with good views across to Port Giles. We arrived in time still with the sun on our side.
