H'eroica 2012 is back and might even be bigger and better than 2011.
The Adelaide Hills has so many hidden unsealed roads and ever-opening expanses of hills, and car-less roads provide a sublime experience, that need to be shared. Logically it seems like the ideal region to have it's own L'Eroica on these mostly unsealed roads.
This event's aim is to be fun, inspiring, eye opening, a bit of a challenge as well as including our non riding family and friends in a get together. Like the Italian event is help on the strade bianchi roads of the Chianti region we are riding the unsealed roads of the 'Little Italy' region of the Adelaide hills - Norton Summit to Lenswood like you've never ridden before.
Like L'eroica we encourage you to dress, or ride, in some vintage cycling gear. We leave Noton Summit at 9am (Magill 8am) and arrive at the Yangoora Estate winery, Lenswood, at around 11am where they will be offering pizza from their wood fired oven as well as cheese platters and home-made cakes and coffee. Families are welcome to join us too.
Sunday September 16th meeting at the Natural Resource Centre carpark, Norton Summit, at 9am.
If you are riding up meet at Magill at 8am
The road surfaces will be a mix of bitumen & compacted gravel roads - "strada giallo". Accordingly your carbon fibre racer should not be used, but mountain bikes, cross-bikes, touring bikes, single-speeds, and whatever else deemed fit for purpose.
You should have your own insurance, be a good bike handler, have spare tubes, food, water, mobile phone. this website and ride creators accept no responsibility for any property damage, personal injury or death inured during this event. This is a BikeSA registered event.
