Started this discussion. Last reply by Mark Mar 22. 6 Replies

Not sure how long these signs have been up for in Pirie Street. I noticed about three yesterday, all as below. I appreciate the intention, but I'm baffled by their placement ie well above my 188cm…Continue

On the same day in Italy the famous L'Eroica ride is being held that take on the dirt roads of Tuscany through the wine region of Chianti. Logically the Adelaide Hills are an…See More
