ACE250

Posted by Robert Thomson on January 15, 2015 at 11:43 3 Comments

A somewhat scary leadup to ACE250.  I'm trianing for the March Melbourne Ironman and thought the ACE250 would be good bike leg training.  But it's become a bit of a beast, what with qualification, lighting rules, weekend leave pass (!) and additional accommodation. 

I am hoping to do ok without any world beating times.  And looking forward to Monday with a possible recovery cycle up Mt Buffalo.

Introducing InFuga Cycling Retreat Normanville for all your training needs

Posted by Gus K on December 5, 2014 at 8:00 0 Comments

It's an undeniable fact that riding more improves your cycling out of sight, but finding the time in a busy life is hard. One way to consolidate that time on the bike and boost your fitness or kickstart your season is to do a training camp. The pros do it in Majorca and you can do right here in Adelaide.

The InFuga Retreat is open for business at Normanville, 75 kms south of Adelaide on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula.

In many ways it aims to be a scaled version of the Australian Institute of Sport’s, European Training Centre.

Located within the quiet township of Normanville, and a short walk to the beautiful sandy swimming beach, it's perfect for small groups who can use the retreat to train, eat, sleep and recover with no…

The Shogun and I

Posted by BJ on November 21, 2014 at 10:26 6 Comments

I bought my Shogun Trailbreaker 3 in the mid 1990's, around the time I bought my Commodore.  I was riding to work in the CBD regularly then.  The car was used for a lot of the other journeys in Adelaide.  There were quite a number of weekend interstate car trips in the late 90's.  On holiday trips, the bike came along on the back.

In 2004 I went on my first group ride of any kind - two weeks with The Silver City Bush Treadlers that included going 'back of Bourke'.  I met Mike Brisco on this ride.  2005 was the first year that I kept reasonably accurate estimates of how far I rode, be it short city commutes or riding back-roads somewhere in the countryside (5,215 kms in that year).  I have estimated over the 10 years prior to that I would have done 30,000 kms on the Shogun.  It was 5 years ago I first went to a Critical Mass ride in Adelaide - that introduced me to people whose concept of 'wheels' is only bikes.

It has been on my mind for a while to add it all up,…

My Riding Coming to an end for 2014

Posted by Steven Ellison on November 16, 2014 at 9:21 0 Comments

A Mixed Year

This years cycling has brought some very mixed emotions along with mixed results. After finishing 2013 with some very big personal achievements that can be see on the post For What Was 2013 in my world of cycling I started the year fresh. To the end of Feb I was already on a roll starting with Day 1 of the Cervo Rosso Grand Brevett, a ride from home, to the city and roundabout to the Barossa with the Curvo Rosso group. The following day I rode home with a friend, Ben, from the Barossa, some several hundred Km's in a couple of days. Four days later doing the Tour Down Under community BUPA Challenge 2014, about 150 km's to Victor Harbor also with Ben.

Another New Bike

After buying the Verite Team S 105 only 12 months before I had a chance to pick up a brand new, full carbon, internal cable routing, full Ultegra bike for a mear $1,400. That makes…
