A Few Finished Projects

Posted by mitch jones on June 26, 2015 at 22:13 0 Comments

Over the last few weeks, I've managed to finish off the Contessa, & my shopping bike. The Contessa came up a treat & rides like a charm. It's the first time I've ridden a 3 speed, & the Shimano hub is smooth & quiet. My wife enjoys riding it too which is great!

 

My shopping bike was a success too. I ended up doing about 25km or so around town on it's first ride & it didn't miss a beat. I also picked up a couple of chrome guards in good nick  for it as well for $2:00 each-bargain! I'll definitely be using this one a bit more!…

The Tour 'Gonunda'

Posted by BJ on May 3, 2015 at 23:30 4 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…

A Volcanic Ride - Mount Haleakala

Posted by Justin V on June 4, 2014 at 17:30 8 Comments

So, last week I ended up in Hawaii.

I had known I would be there a few months prior so a few repeats of Norton Summit and Greenhill Road had been included into my routine. I had also tried to extend my regular rides slightly as I knew I'd be in the saddle (an unfamiliar one at that) for an extended time.  

I had done my research on where Mt Haleakala was, where "the" ride starts from, where to stay, where to borrow a bike. Firstly, I organised to book the bike from Maui Cyclery - http://www.gocyclingmaui.com/, accommodation was to be at The Paia Inn - http://paiainn.com/. The rental shop and accommodation were both within 100metres of the start of the climb. Nice!

After flying to Honolulu and then onto Maui, we checked into our room. Very nice, comfortable and recommended with direct beach access which was utilized straight away. After a swim and a lie…

Bikes for the STTARS from the Bike Workshop

Photo (C) STTARS, Adelaide.

STTARS is a small Adelaide not-for-profit, which helps refugee families overcome severe trauma. It's skilled specialied work and STTARS is about the only organisation in Adelaide, which provides this service. 

Every December, STTARS run a camp for children, and  the Bike Workshop contributes bikes. As the above photo shows, the kids love them. Whatever kids have been through - on a bike, they can perhaps forget about their troubles and just have fun riding around with their friends. .

Just to pass on the email Kimberly Nefyn of STTARS sent ...

Hi Mike
