Adel to Melb via the coast solo unsupported April 2015

Posted by Tom Ford on May 20, 2015 at 10:30 8 Comments

On Tuesday 14 April I set off from my backyard with the goal of reaching Melbourne on or before Friday 24 April. The ride was solo and unsupported. I’ll cover the ride first, and the gear and setup down below if you’re interested. This write up just got out of hand how long it is, sorry bout it! But decided to leave it long in case anyone is thinking of doing a similar ride. When I was researching prior, I was looking for any and all information. 

Day 1 – set off from home all packed at rolled out from home in North Adelaide at 9am a bit behind schedule, and a puncture on Greenhill Rd just before Devereux Rd… what are the chances. Fixed it and got going but rear mech wasn't shifting cleanly, spent more than an hour trying everything… Turns out I’d put the spring on the quick…

Is cycling a team or individual sport?

Posted by Tom Trewartha on May 7, 2015 at 12:47 4 Comments

Amateur, pro or other...we see them everywhere. From huge groups/trains to individual lycra machines getting aorund on the streets.

There is the weekend warrior who gets on the saddle for their morning planned route, including the local coffee establishment and then there are the 'teams' out their in their all matching lycra attire, humming along at a pace that could possibly mean a present from the local 'boys in blue' in their letter box when they get home.

So why do we do it? Aside from the fun and fitness factor, are we riding with others because we want to feel part of a team to build better relationships with others, or is our motivation to 'get a ride in' or to 'smash it out to prove to myself (and others) how good I am'?

Whatever reason we're out there, there is no question that cycling is great fun and great for well being.

Traditional team sports such as footy, cricket, netball etc. require team work to get the job done. But what about cycling?…

The Tour 'Gonunda'

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

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.…
