I'm looking forward to the TDF this year - what about you?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Terry C Jul 13, 2013. 63 Replies

Last year I thought the tour was quite dull with Team Sky dominating all over. This year, for some reason I'm really looking forward to watching (even though Sky might dominate all over again). Maybe…Continue

Is it just me or is this year's TDF boring?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Dstone Jul 24, 2012. 83 Replies

Just can't seem to summon much interest with Wiggins leading for most of the three weeks and most of the contenders from past years not even there. Or am I just suffering sour grapes on behalf of…Continue

Do cycling parents have cycling children?

Posted on April 14, 2012 at 11:23 9 Comments

The Age have been running a series of articles about cycling (presumably reflecting the interests of its readership). Last week was an article about getting into cycling in adulthood (dare I say it in middle age?). One of the comments suggested that one of the reasons people have to take up cycling in middle age is because its so hard these days to get kids into cycling. But I thought to myself – that’s not true on Adelaide Cyclists! I would say instead that we all go out of our way to…

My new cycling challenge (you're going to laugh...)

Posted on January 6, 2012 at 7:45 7 Comments

In October I walked 178km in 8 days (part of the Camino de Santiago that crosses across northern Spain, the part we walked was mainly through Galicia). Part of the walk included a 8km climb up to 1000m at 7.5%. We walked every day from around 7am to 5pm, with stops it was 6 hours of walking. Even though it was October and should have been autumn the weather was really hot and we didn't see a cloud for 6 of the days let alone any rain. The walking was not really that hard, although carrying…

The best of 2011 on AC

Posted on December 17, 2011 at 7:39 22 Comments

 At this time of year newspapers are full of list of the best…TV shows, movies of the summer, gourmet hamburgers, whatever….

So I thought what about an AC list? I don’t pretend to know everything about everyone on AC, so I’ll start and I call on others for nominations and suggestions for categories. So here’s a chance to highlight great contributions or contributors and show them a bit of love. Remember we are trying to be nice (and maybe a bit humourous) here.

PS I don’t think…

A few random observations on how they "do cycling" elsewhere

Posted on November 1, 2011 at 21:00 1 Comment

We have just spent 6 weeks overseas (mostly in the UK but with 2 weeks in Spain in the middle).  While we were there we drove all over the country from the Peak District south including Wales, Cornwall & Devon, the home counties and Norfolk. We also visited  or passed through a few middle sized cities (like Cambridge & Manchester), and stayed a few days in London. We noticed a few things that interested us (and I am not saying this was in any way a comprehensive or accurate survey –…
