A very pleasant ride. Great view. Easy and quiet. My son enjoyed it very. We stopped several times to take pictures. We rode all the way from Port Elliot to the Bluff. Going downhill was really cool for my teenager boy.

We rode Victor Harbor to Port Elliott twice and the views were breathtaking. Around a 17k round trip and overall not too hard a ride. Reasonably well signed but a bit confusing at times.
