Annual Tour: Stunning KI

This year's Bike SA Annual Tour took in the feast of the senses that is Kangaroo Island - and a great time was had by all.

Over 200 eager participants pedalled (and ate and drank!) their way around 'KI' during the week of October 19 - 26.

Despite a couple of less favourable days weather-wise, the tour generally enjoyed great conditions and the company more than made up for a bit of wind and rain!

When asked for their favourite things about the tour, riders rated the scenery, wildlife and company of fellow cyclists pretty highly. 

The coffee van and delicious food were also mentioned often (no surprises there!!), as was the work of our fabulous staff and volunteers.

"We came away having again met some great people - always amazed at the talents and abilities of the riders in the annual tour," says Rita and Cliff who rode the tour this year coming all the way from Western Australia. 

Even the weather didn't deter these happy cyclists. 

"We could have done without the gale force wind, wet with biting rain, cool mornings, days and nights," laughs Cliff.

"But hey...the "long day" from Parndana to Western KI was the one day we have spoken of the most since and the day that brought out the best in us both. What great fun!"

It seems KI has managed to impress, yet again. We look forward to seeing lots of riders join us again next year - keep an eye out to see where we'll be heading.
