One day it's freezing at Mt Lofty (today) and a few days later it's going to be 33 degrees for Amy's Ride. Keeps us on our toes (even if they are freezing)
Amy's Ride this Sunday
It's not to late to sign-up to ride with 3000 other cyclists on the Southern Freeway. It's a challenge, it's great day out on the bike and it supports the Amy Gillet Foundation's mission for safer cycling and memory of Amy Gillet.
Have a go and meet up with some other Adelaide Cyclists members -- some even wearing their new AC kit.
Chat room open this Friday night
One suggestion that came to me recently was to have more live chat on the site. I am not a fan of the chat and think it's great for occasional use like the Tour de France but I thought a live chat before events like Amy's Ride might be a good way to share tips, organise meet-ups and generally prepare and build the anticipation.
So join us on Thursday night from 8.30pm - 11 the chat will be on the home page. You can jump in or ignore it.
Capilano Honey have a product called Honey Shotz which are an alternative to energy gels being an all natural product. Some of you may have seen them about with some members already receiving some packs.
Capilano are seeking to find more reviewers of their product and have offered a prize pack to 5 Adelaide Cyclists members made up of a box of 100 7g Honey Shotz, a Honey Shotz sports hat, water bottle, and $30 voucher for their online store. Winners need to write a 100 word review of the Shotz. Have a go and enter here.
The first batch of Adelaide Cyclists jerseys (and knicks) are now being seen out and about and the word is they are comfortable, great quality and do really make you go faster (must be the Cat6 logo on the sleeve. The jersey's are available to order again now with a wide range of sizes (unisex). If you're looking to stop wearing that old TDU ride jersey from 2008 and get in to some new kit this is your opportunity to order and get it before Christmas.
If a jersey is not your thing the Adelaide Cyclists t-shirts are also back in stock. Printed locally on great light quality t-shirts these are good for all the other times you can't wear a jersey
$28 for the Adelaide Cyclists logo or Cat6 Champion t-shirts.
Order here or pick one up from Star Cycles Elizabeth or The Bike Station Brighton.
