Welcome Troy,    being a Hybrid there are a few riders that use them every now with GW.   I would start on the beginner rides to see how you go for the first few rides.

there is always a tail end charlie to make sure your ok as well. 

There is even a crazier bloke that has ridden with GW on a dual suspension MTB  so you would have no issues with the Scott. :)

Retirement Ahead Image

GAWLER WHEELERS FOUNDERS
SET TO RETIRE

On 14-Mar-2015 it will be four years since the Gawler Wheelers social cycling group was created and on that fourth anniversary, we the Gawler Wheelers founders (Wilson and Frank), will be attending our last Gawler Wheelers event as Gawler Wheelers organisers.

After volunteering our time/services and organising nearly three hundred group ride events to date, we feel that the time has come to step aside and return to cycling as more of a pastime, rather than having an active involvement.

We are effectively giving just over six months 'notice' until the pending March 2015 retirement.

Naturally we will be seeking expressions of interest from existing Gawler Wheelers members who may wish to take over all aspects of running/organising the Gawler Wheelers social cycling group.

By giving just over six months 'notice' we feel there will be ample time to 'show someone the ropes'.

After three and a half years to date, we believe we have created a sustainable social cycling group framework within the Adelaide Cyclists and Gawler community and our hope is for it to continue, just with someone else at the helm.

Anyone interested in taking on this volunteer role can contact us at one of the remaining upcoming group ride events.

Wilson and Frank
(Gawler Wheelers Founders)

POINT OF CLARIFICATION
THE OVERTAKING MANOEUVRE

Overtaking Maneuver Image

The Gawler Wheelers adopted the Tour de Cure 'Bunch Riding Etiquette' Guide when the group was formed in March 2011.

Section 3.2 of the Guide is entitled, "Overtaking Another Rider", and details the correct method for the overtaking manoeuvre (as shown above).

A number of riders, particularly in the faster section of the Gawler Wheelers peloton (whilst riding in a "train"), have been put into a position of being forced to pass a rider on the inside because the lead rider has pulled out into the centre of the road to allow the other riders to "overtake".

This is considered an incorrect overtaking manoeuvre. The correct method is detailed below :


Comment by Gawler Wheeler on August 17, 2014 at 19:08

When the lead rider has finished "taking their turn at the front" they should indicate with a hand signal or verbal call for the following riders to overtake in a single file formation on the lead rider's right hand side.

The lead rider should not pull out into the centre of the road, "hanging in the breeze", and sit there using this action to signal for the following riders to "overtake".

If the lead rider has not signalled their intention to be overtaken but the following riders "feel like giving the lead rider a break" then they are free to overtake on the right and should call 'Rider Right', 'Overtaking', 'Giving you a break' or 'I'll take a turn' etc. as they pass by. (The first rider to pass will generally make this verbal call.)

The lead rider should continue riding on the left and allow the following riders to overtake on the right. The lead rider can optionally "soft pedal" and in doing so, it will make it easier for the following riders to overtake.

The last rider in the overtaking group should call 'last rider' when passing the previous lead rider to signify that there are no more riders overtaking. This lets the previous lead rider know that they need to follow the wheel of this "last rider" and resume normal pedalling in order to stay with the group and not get left behind.
