Hello Adelaide Cyclists.
I started this online community nearly 12 months ago. At the time, after the buzz of the 2009 TDU, I considered starting a blog with possibly a podcast as a part of that but reconsidered the idea of community and started Adelaide Cyclists as a social network (inspired by Melbourne and Sydney Cyclist).
