The Tour 'Gonunda'

Posted by BJ on May 3, 2015 at 23:30 1 Comment

Gonunda was the town based on Eudunda that South Australian author Colin Thiele (born and raised there) centered his book The Shadow on the Hills around. Eudunda doesn't come up in talk about ride destinations from Adelaide like Victor Harbor, Clare or (wheels of Clive) Murray Bridge. The Mawson Trail doesn't go that near, although the Lavender Trail (walking) from Murray Bridge now reaches there. What I saw at Eudunda of the Lavender Trail was shared-use, but I didn't get to explore for how far. The next stage is planned to be shared-use at least to begin with.

What did I find? Very quiet scenic rural back roads, many expansive views to a 'sea of hills' to the north, out across the flats to mallee in the east, and to the distinctive hills that flank the Barossa to the south. Eudunda has good accommodation (the Light Hotel is a gem), a well-stocked Foodland, and a bakery. What else does a bike-rider need (sorry, I'm not a coffee drinker, can't help you…

Tales from The Pie Ride - In Aid of MIFSA - 2015

Posted by Andrew Watts on April 1, 2015 at 23:00 0 Comments

The event day preparations started pre-dawn at Home Grain Bakery at Aldinga, with the sound of thousands of galahs which have made the local area home drowning out many an attempt to communicate!

The wonderful folks at the bakery were already up and about and filling the pie warmer with meat pies and the most amazing smelling vegan sausage rolls, straight out of the baker's oven!

Soon enough, riders started arriving to confirm their registration and pay their fee, which included the cost the ride, a donation to MIFSA as well as receiving a pie/vegan sausage roll at the start and a brownie at half way. Not terrible value for $10!



All sorts of riders turned up to support the cause, from the racers to the little kids.…

Altitude training: sea-level performance benefits and preparation for travel to high-altitude environments

Posted by Andrew Vogler on May 31, 2013 at 11:45 3 Comments

The main discussion on the Training and Nutrition forum over the last month has been the Mount Haleakala hill climb in Hawaii, which is a 55 km ride to an altitude of 3050 m (5.5% average grade). The forum discussion briefly mentioned the challenges of exercising at altitude and the possibility of using altitude training to prepare for travel to a high-altitude environment. As an Accredited Sports Scientist and operator of Adelaide Human Performance, I thought I’d provide some background about altitude training.

Any discussion of altitude training needs to start with the metabolic role of oxygen and how oxygen availability decreases at altitude. The oxygen we breathe is used by the aerobic metabolic pathways to synthesize energy for cellular work. So in terms of exercise capacity, the more oxygen we can consume, the more energy that can be produced, and the more work that can be performed. This is why…

Mt Crawford, Wirra Wirra Peaks, loop

Posted by Rob Michaelson on October 17, 2014 at 20:49 0 Comments

Great mountain bike ride few weekends ago. starting from Mt Crawford Forest HQ. Rode around Mt Crawford from the south and, perhaps illegally, crossed some land to get to Police Paddock rd which takes you thru the Gap. Council Maps web page shows a public access route, but couldnt find a visible track.  Onto Mount Rd and up the lovely fire tracks in Wirra Wirra peaks. Lucky to have my map to find the less steep parts. Onto Blockers rd for a hard slog on the Heysen trail linking up to Ross Fire track. Down Old Glen Gillian rd. On the main rd. Turn up Manser rd , into Forest following Fry road leading back to Mt Crawford Forest HQ. Probably avoid the Blockers rd bit next time.
