H'eroica 2013 is back and might even be bigger and better than its two previous incarnations.
Route to be confirmed.
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 Norton Summit at 8.30 am (Magill 7.45 am).
Unlike previous years we are aiming to add another 30 kms or so (TBC) to the original Norton Summit to Lenswood via Blockers Rd.
We still aim to stopover at Anderson Hill winery (formerly Yangoora), Lenswood, at around 12 am where they will be offering pizza from their wood fired oven as well as cheese platters and home-made cakes and coffee. Spouses, friends and families are welcome to join us there.
Sunday October 20 meeting at the Natural Resource Centre carpark, Norton Summit, at 8.30 am.
If you are riding up meet at Magill at 7.45 am
A note on the course. It is steep. 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.
