As part of the upcoming TDU the Messenger Newspaper are running a story on "The Typical Adelaide Rider" and as part of the story they would love to have some footage of the Corkskrew Rd Climb.
The Messenger newspaper have asked me to don a Go Pro camera and climb Corkskrew Rd either today or at the latest Mon morn,but Unfortunately due to work constraints I cannot do so !
So I think the next best option is if one of the Adelade Cyclist Forum members step up and be imortalised .
Said rider must contact me ASAP as the Editor of the messenger paper requires the task to be performed NOW !! LOL
Another possibility is if one oy you already have Go pro footage ofthe Corksrew Climb already recorded it could be utilised in the Messenger Story !
If you are interested please ph me ASAP !

Does descending "Corcscrew" help
I remember this...thanks AVO....nice memories....but killed the Giant TCR soon after
Good video , busy day on "The Corker"
I can get you the camera (and mountings) if you come along to Thursday Night Riders tonight to pick it up.
What exactly is the "The Typical Adelaide Rider" there would be al lot of bike riders who would struggle to ride up corkscrew road.
I would be one of them
Maybe they want footage of someone walking there bike up .. :D :P
I can assist there!!
Heres another, maybe better shots of riders riding it
As far as the typical rider, I'm guessing that the majority of "cyclists" probably don't even know where the Corkscrew is!
Thanks for the replies !
The camera will be supplied by the Messenger Newspaper crew !
If YOU would like to do this ride & have it filmed please ph me ASAP the deadline is very close !
ie The ride would neeed to be taking place in the next day or so !
Make sure you get the correct mounts, the standard bicycle mount won't fit a lot of over sized tubes on plastic bikes - you'll need the roll-bar mount instead.
Just looking at that hairpin curve in this youtube thumbnail gets my HR up. ;) Its an awesome Radelaide climb for sure. Ive riden it in the rain, under full moon at 2am and even once after 340k on new years day 2009.
