1st Gran Fondo – Peninsula Pedallers

IMG_0049Our new riding event was held last Sunday in the popular holiday and fishing destination Tumby Bay, Eyre Peninsula. The event had two options the mini Gran Fondo – 30km and half Gran Fondo 60km.

Our group started riding from the front street heading to Ungarra. The event went well and it was represented by 10 PP members plus 2 Support Crew. The ride itself was dominated by the NW head wind until reach our destination with a table full of refreshments! On the way back a tail wind helped to keep the group together and a final lead out held by Greg gave the riders a good taste of the Tour de France. Overall, it was a good day and everyone enjoyed the day out!



Ungarra is a small agricultural based town located on the Eyre Peninsula, 30km from Tumby Bay and 80km from Port Lincoln. The name ‘Ungarra’ is derived from a nearby waterhole of the same name which is located just to the south of the township. It has a Mediterranean climate and receives on average just over 400mm of rainfall every year.
