Tuesday Morning Mount Lofty Madness


Tuesday Morning Mount Lofty Madness

We ride to Mt Lofty via the Old Freeway every Tuesday morning. We meet at the corner of Portrush Rd and Mt Barker Rd (aka the Freeway) next to the big gum tree (NOT at the Tollgates) at 5:50am and aim to be back at the start by 7:00 am.

Location: Old Freeway to Mt Lofty and return

TMMLM Ride Info

The ride takes place each week all year round. About the only time we won't be riding is if its raining, the rain radar shows rain on Mt Lofty or we are out of town.

Numbers currently vary from 2-6 riders.

Pace is moderate (i.e. will suit riders who can ride from the traffic lights to the bollards in 27-35 minutes).

We regroup at Eagle on the Hill and the Bollards and continue on to Mt Lofty, although some people choose to head home at the Bollards.

Coffee and bakery treats on offer around once a month.

Good lights essential during the winter months.


The group Discussion Forum and Comment wall frequently gets off-topic and we some-times engage in a bit of trash talk. But that's OK cos that's what cycling is all about, right?


Don't be put off by our grandiose ride reports...its amazing how you can turn a pootle up a hill into a major UCI bike race with the right words.

Zosim, this group has dwindled away and seems to have very few participants lately.  You might turn up on a Tuesday morning and be the only one there. 

Having said that, many many cyclists go up Mt Lofty every day, especially in fine weather.   You will have no trouble finding a group to ride with, either up to Lofty or another route through the Adelaide Hills.    If you can't see a convenient group ride already listed, start your own discussion thread (perhaps closer to Xmas) and you'll find some riding buddies from among the thousands of riders on this site.  Cheers

Hi - I'm visiting Adelaide for a few days over Christmas and saw mount Lofty as a possible ride and would love to do it with people rather than alone. I assume you don't mind a stranger pitching up to join in?

@wujim - if you don't like reading it, don't. If you feel the need to comment, don't. No-one is forcing you to be a member of this group, no-one is forcing you to read or comment about my comments. Save yourself the worry, leave the group, that is unless you are deliberately trying to bait me like your gutless bully mate?

A cold one this morning. I gave snap snr & jnr a bit of a head start (at home making sure my kit matched - you never know who you'll meet?), but rounded them up by the kennels. I kicked on, Lofty Summit bound, but thought it not nearly cold enough, and wondered how cold it is in the Piccadilly Valley? I didn't have long to wait, as the descent to Crafers gave me a humdinger of an ice-cream headache, so everything felt balmy/barmy after that.

Not tomorrow JV. I will be riding a little later 6:30 am from RBE.

I'll be riding tomorrow if anyone wants to join me at 5.50. I will be riding up and continuing on to Greenhill from the gates ie not going to the summit.

It is a pity that this group has dwindled almost into non-existence because it was a beautiful Tuesday morning for a group-hug at Mt Lofty looking at the sunrise, and out over the Gulf. There was hardly anyone riding up the freeway, and only a handful descending, in complete contrast to Norton Summit where there were literally thousands making the ascent.

2.6% of members attended. 25% cold, 50% fog, 0% rain, 60% wet roads, 99% enjoyment.

Well done boys - I am still trying to shake off the last vestiges of a cold, so I had to leave you to it. I know it is hard during winter, but it would be good to get 2, 3 or more regulars.

You must have ridden past when I was at the Summit I was there from 6:35 am to 6:40 am. I then rode down to Crafers hoping to see you but I saw no one climbing towards Lofty.
