  1. It’s the Southerners turn to try hosting a Cogal, after last years successful Adelaide Cogal. Situated south of Adelaide, Victor Harbor and surrounding towns are a popular South Australian tourist destination: boasting the mighty Murray River and surfing beach at Goolwa through to Whale watching at Middleton and picture postcard views over Encounter Bay at Victor Harbor. Riding is a mix of seaside roads and medium hills all the way through to Willunga Hill (featured climb in the TDU). Join us for a Casually deliberate day sampling some fine roads/scenery and great coffee and food along the way.
