Greenhill Road (Uraidla)

Distance: 700m

Metres Climbed: 51

Avg Gradient: 6.9%

Road Quality: Average

Strava: http://app.strava.com/segments/779622

This is really just a connector climb, but if you’ve just climbed up the main Greenhill Road climb or Mt Lofty, it’s a pretty worthy little hill. There is a bit of traffic, but it’s not too bad – nothing to stop you from riding it. For want of a better starting point, you actually get a pretty flat run for the first part of the strava segment, but the climb starts in earnest about 100m after the road turns to the left, and it’s pretty noticeable. This flat bit means that the Avg Gradient is fairly unrepresentative.

The Climb hits about 10% during the first 250m, at an average of about 8%. After that, it gets a little bit easier, and the second half of the climb is more like 7%. It’s all over quickly enough though, and you’re all finished when you get to the intersection with Range Road.

From here you can turn left to go towards Basket Range, right down Parish Road into the Picadilly Valley, or go on a little further towards Deviation Road. Or even just keep following Greenhill Road out to Balhannah.

Thanks to Street View for taking photos whilst I was more interested in riding my bike.
