Thanks for organising this ride Angus, it was great to be able to bring Chris' grandson along with us on his first ever proper ride. Jaron is quite worn out now - 23km on a bmx is no mean feat, especially at Grandad's pace on the way back at about 17kph!
Bit chilly to start with, but it was lovely by the time we got to Henley Beach. Very much enjoyed the brunch and chat with all the AC'ers.
Sorry I got tonsillitis and couldn't ride.
Tthanks Caroline. Good fun it was great the rain cleared for a nice sunny time at Henley. Kept the crowds away from the cafes too so we could all get a seat.
Thanks all for coming. It is a bit different to a normal Sunday ride for some of you and I appreciate groups like the Gully Grinders making the diversion from regular riding plans. No doubt there will be some photos so thanks to Kathryn and Phil in Advance
Some kids will sleep well tonight. Other parents who towed them will also need a nanna nap before the Paris-Roubaix tonight.
Time to plan an event for the faster riders next. Hills or flat beach sprint?
Sorry I didn't find you guys! I went to Henley Beach, but couldn't see anybody at Cibo's, despite hanging around a bit. So went to Glenelg for coffee and brunch...
Oh well, there's always the fourth birthday!
Hope you all had a good time. Maybe I'll see some of you at the Paris Roubaix. Now, that's at Marion...right? :-)
We were there from about 10.30 Katrina and for at least an hour.
Hey Katrina! Why wait until the 4th Birthday .. come for the sprint or cargo bikes
Yea Cargo bikes should be nice and social, maybe we could borrow a cargo bike and transport Katrina for a couple of circuits around the block
Kathryn, did you miss that Katrina has a broken collarbone and shoulder from a cycling accident? No cycling for her for months. I know because after bike withdrawal symptoms, I got back on my bike in February for short rides. Today was the longest ride I had done since October. After the ride to Henley Beach, I went home the long way for another coffee with a cycling friend.
Katrina could get to the cargo bike picnic by other means.
Sorry Katrina i was not rubbing the salt into your wound so to speak . I was unaware you are out of action for a while and hope you are feeling better soon .
I enjoyed this ride, as my first ac ride.....
Coffee was good also...
Two "firsts" for me today. First ride with the Gully Grinders and also my first Easter Sunday ride - a good combo. Not even a little sprinkle of rain dampened our spirits and it was great to see how well the little 'uns did - good job to all! I've ridden the Linear Park track many times but can't remember enjoying it more than today - even at the gentle pace of this particular run. It was also very nice to meet some of the people behind the "icons" used on AC. Thanks for a fun day out - looking forward to the next one!
Rode with the Gully Grinders from Golden Grove via Nth East Rd and joined the Linear park in Walkerville, nice to see a good group there when we arrived at the brewery. I think the kids surprised all the non parents and maybe one or two parents as we were at Henley by 10.30 and no sign of tiredness at that point.
Returned to Golden Grove via Linear Park with a kind of weird dog leg via Bowden, Medindie and Hackney, this happens when you change ride leaders even more often frequantly than I decide what kind of bike I want next. Alternative routes continued to abound when we got back into Linear park territory but ultimateley we arrived back at Golden Grove. A pleasent morning and early afternoon ride.
