Some thoughts on Thursday's cyclist incident at Brighton.

Posted by Muddies on August 30, 2014 at 14:30 4 Comments

I haven't posted much on here recently because the site seems full of negativity around cycling infrastructure and all the reasons you can think of NOT to ride a bike.

The rider involved in the serious crash on Thursday is lucky to be alive, he probably owes his life to the fact his cycling club (and mine) take safety very seriously. There were a number of first aiders on the ride, the club paid for many of us to be trained last year. Cycling can be dangerous, but so can walking to the shop.

This morning I rode with several riders who know the rider and are affected by this incident, we ran into one of the ill fated Thursday group riders at our coffee stop, and I note from Strava that at least 15 club members were out riding this morning. In fact the Thursday ride continued on, albeit very somberly, after the injured rider was in the ambulance.

There has been lots of well wishes for the injured rider and his family on various websites and forms of social media…

Three Year Anniversary (cycling as an adult)

Posted by Steven Ellison on August 12, 2014 at 10:30 9 Comments

Well, the 11th of August slipped by without me noticing, that is the day in 2011 that I rode a bike for the first time as an adult. Since then I have cycled, on average, just short of 1,000 km's each month to clock up 35,385 km's to date.

My blog posts, this year, have dropped of a lot as I lost some enthusiasm for posting when I lost my earlier posts due to hardware failure and lack of foresight, read insufficient backup! Besides that, I feel I have little to offer new riders anymore as it was all about the journey of a new rider. I am now in inbetweenland, not a new rider but not a seasoned rider either!   

So, what do I have to blog about that is of interest to others, not much that I can think of really!

Several things have happened in my third year. Overall, I have ridden far less, I have ridden my longest ride, I have slept much more and have ridden far more with my dear wife, Lynn, who took my first bike from me 2 years ago and last but not least I have…

Jannette Sadik-Kahn: All hail the queen of New York City

Posted by Gus K on July 23, 2014 at 23:53 2 Comments

This originally appeared in the Bicycle Institute, SA's quarterly journal Pedal Update. Read the whole issue here or join the Bicycle Institute to help improve cycling for all in SA, it's now free.

Her transformation of New York from gridlock to a walkable and cycle-able city is legendary. Velo-City guest speaker Jannette Sadik-Kahn was New York City’s Commissioner of Transportation and oversaw its dramatic transformation to a cycling and pedestrian mecca, and her presentation impressed Bicycle Institute's Gus Kingston.

A Volcanic Ride - Mount Haleakala

Posted by Justin V on June 4, 2014 at 17:30 6 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…

An Adelaide Cyclist in Copenhagen

Posted by Peter Hill on May 4, 2014 at 23:25 9 Comments

Earlier in this year (in March) I embarked on a big tour of Norway and Finland to go chasing the Aurora Borealis (aka ‘The Northern Lights’)

 I had a couple of days in Stockholm (Sweden) and a couple more in Copenhagen (Denmark) and for the benefit of some cycling friends here in Adelaide I have collated a few photos to help de-mystify the Scandinavian bike thing.

Unlike my great trip a few years ago where I hired a bike and rode around Manhattan my experiences of this trip were limited to being an observer as foot traffic and occasional taxi rides.  Sounds like a cop out but considering my grand stuff up from Feb 2013 (I broke my leg slipping on ice in St Petersburg on day 2 of a 6 week holiday!), my notion of risk was highly elevated and jumping on a bike was ruled…

Steve Cunningham: Scody 3 Peaks challenge success requires dedication

Posted by Gus K on April 11, 2014 at 18:00 5 Comments

Adelaide's Stephen Cunningham crossed the line first in the 2013 3 Peaks Challenge and returned in last month to do it again. The former European based pro, now training coach and European tour guide, who divides his time between the Adelaide Hills and France, wrote this exclusive post about what it takes to successfully ride arguably one of the toughest sportifs in the world and, despite his critics, do it back to back.

Well it's been a few weeks since participating in the …
