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!…

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…


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…
