I have a Surly Cross Check which comes out of the box with a 700 x 32 tyre. Whilst it is a reasonable tyre I am looking to upgrade to a Schwalbe tyre which I have only been able to find in 35mm. The LBS sales guy said it would be fine on the rim but I would like to have some confirmation of that as they are certainly not cheap.
I would appreciate the advice from those in the group
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). But podcasting was always on the agenda and now after a year, as a co-production with the Bicycle Institute of…Continue

When night turns to day.. a busy nightspot, common for alcohol fuelled revelry and violence has been forced to close and in its vacant state taken over the the Sydney City Council and is to be turned into a cycling hub.
The area is to have lock-ups, showering facilities, bike hire, it will over cycling tours and have a bike shop and repair service.
It sounds a bit like what Adelaide City Council and BicycleSA have been polling… Continue

The first stage of the Amy Gillett Bikeway was opened opened on 23/1/10 - the initial stage is from Oakbank - Woodside, but will eventually run to Mt Pleasant
There doesn't seem to be much detail available yet, but I wonder if anyone has yet ridden it.
Happy new cycling year to you all! January again has seen Adelaide host the Australian Cycling Conference. BISA was one of the conference sponsors, and two of our members attended both days. The Tour Down Under was in full swing, and I was again struck by what a great cycling destination South Australia is. As we enter the Adelaide festival season, many people will choose to ride a bicycle to various venues instead of driving a car. Adelaide’s summer nights become alive with bicycles, a measure… Continue

From Pedal Pushers Club (US)
The money from these US stickers goes to fund to help raise better awareness of cycling.
Perhaps something like this is Adelaide might work well to show that many cyclists actually drive cars and pay rego like all road users. This is always the argument raised when mainstream media does a cycling safety… Continue
No photo....well not until tonights news, but the TV crews were out fliming Lance along the Esplanade at Semaphore. If I had known he was down my way I would have invited him over for a good home cooked meal.

My Mum has been going through the archives of the local Ballarat Courier newspapers' christmas supplement as part of her research, and is coming across interesting ads for all sorts of things. We liked this one for an early Australian made motorcycle:
I also like the suite that's a "Marvel of Cheapness" next to it as well… Continue
Two and a half years ago I moved to Adelaide from Sydney. I knew it was a good cycling city, I rode the linear park to work and into the CBD but in February this year when the Tour Down Under and Lance fever gripped town it was cycling a cycling obsessed city - so I created this Adelaide Cyclists social network. (I wrote in April on 'How this site came…Continue
Just thought I'd post a quick message here about having returned to my family home in the little hamlet of Clarendon, about 20km from Ballarat, Victoria and 100km from Melbourne. While I really liked being in and cycling through Adelaide for 2 years, I've come here to pursue the next step in my interest into research in Urban and Regional Planning.
Veer is an indie documentary looking at the fast growing bicycle culture in the US. It follows five bicycle nuts and the bike sub groups they belong to as well as what it means to be a part of a community and how such movements are formed.
I cannot see any international dates on its release schedule but the DVD can be bought online from Indieflix.com and would…
I recently had a mate over from Victoria for a few days of holidays, and was determined to add a bit of rural cycling to the program! Originally planning to check out some cycling in the Barossa, logistics meant we had to choose somewhere in the Fleurieu instead. However this turned out well, as our choice of the “Encounter Bikeway” from Victor Harbor to Goolwa turned out a nice addition to our holiday.
The City of Victor Harbor have put a bit of an effort into this track – we didn't… Continue
I recently joined a biking club. The sign-up requires proof of medical insurance or at least short term health insurance. Just wondering if that is a pretty standard deal or not. Seems to make sense on one level while on another it could cause many folks to be unable to join. I'm fairly new to this… Continue
