Mishmash Cycling

Friendly group of casual cyclists aged between 11 and 70. We meet at the rear Birdwood Foodland car park  every Saturday at 7.45 am for an 8 am start. Two ride groups. 40 km and 60 km. A different ride each week. All rides are mapped on so put in a search for Birdwood, and check them out.  Coffee afterward at Pomegranate Cottage. All welcome. An email is sent out every Thursday night, with the rides for Saturday morning. Message me if you would like to be put on the email list.. Be warned though. We have some "comedians" amongst us.

On average we have about 12 riders each week and have a shorter and longer distance, snappy jersey too.Continue

Thanks Paul - just wondering where to find out about the planned rides?

Yes still going strong most Saturday mornings and other rides held through the week if there are people interested.  Even Mountain bike rides on long weekends, and some Sundays.

Hi! I have just joined Adelaide Cyclists. Is this group still meeting in Birdwood on Saturday mornings? Claire :-)

With the spring weather we had 18 riders one week and 13 the next.  Speeds are averaging about 20-22k for the 40 k ride and about 25 for the 60 k ride.  Different route each week.

There is a small group, 1-3 that do a 30k ride first from 630am finishing in time to then do the 8am ride.  A good way to build distance without having to go fast.  Contact Michelle for details of the 630 ride

The surrounding area has short gentle hills and low traffic volumes - ideal for cycling

“Short” ride report – 55km!!!

Eleven riders took the shorter ride option heading towards Springton.  The pace was a bit high at the start and with Elaine stopping to do up her helmet it didn’t take long for us to be spread out as we headed into the wind up towards Mt Pleasant.  The sun made a few brief appearances through the growing clouds, at the first stop we were all warmed up so off came the jackets.  At the ATM was Peter who cheered us onwards as to Springton we went.  The downhill was disappointing as the head wind slowed us down but after a snack at the bottom the group split with some heading back & others onward to Eden Valley.  Here the shop was shut so no food for us and after maintenance on a loose bidon carrier it was time to turn back with the gentle downhill from Eden Valley a welcome relief as the entrance is deceptively uphill.

Gary, Lisa & myself worked together to make Springton then I left Lisa who had an ipod malfunction, my offer to sing my version of Meatloaf’s  “" target="_blank">paradise by the dashboard lights” quickly refused as she came to a stop to get the i-pod working.  There must be a cycling rule about stopping at the bottom of a hill just before an even bigger hill so I kept going and was able to spin up Springton hill and then keep it going on the home stretch.

We got back to the bakery about the same time as the other group; they looked rather more tired than we did.  Does that mean we are the more fitter?  Despite the wind it was a good route as riders could adjust their distance to their own preference.
