Member Don Nairn suggested that as summer comes on it'd be good to have a map of places to refill your bidons and here it is. It's a crowd-sourced map so everyone can add locations to share information for others.
Adelaide Cyclists t-shirts - the logo one and Cat6 Champion - are in stock and make a great Christmas pressie to yourself or an excellent suggestion to someone else to get for you. Also now available are Cat6 Champion messenger bag, coffee mug, iPhone covers and the always popular I Bike ADL t-shirt. If you want these under the tree for Christmas you do need to order now.
Jerseys are now finished for this season. The second round of orders will be arriving as you read this. If you missed out there are a few spares available as well as a very limited number of bib knicks. Check the jerseys page from later today when I've sorted out what stock there is. There are also still a few at The Bike Station, Brighton. Grab 'em now for Christmas and ditch the old event jerseys.
