Vale Michael (Mick) Adams

To those on this site who may remember him as the ever-reliable Tail-End-Charlie for the Gawler Wheelers back in their first few years, it is with sadness that I report the passing of Mick Adams last week after a short illness. Mick was one of the reasons why the Wheelers took-off the way they did and he showed me the importance of having someone unflappable and helpful at the pack of a group ride in order to encourage new riders to become regular riders. 

He made friends on the…

Montacute Rd conditions

Hi folks,

In the last week I've seen 2 serious crashes involving cyclists descending down Montacute both needing ambulances. The road surface is pretty sketchy with loose gravel 1km before the corkscrew (1st incident) and this morning further down but not sure what the cause was. Take it easy wishing a speedy recovery for those involved.

Ever since I first tried MTB riding, I’ve been addicted to it. Not even after the first fall, which happened after not more than ten minutes of riding, did I feel this wasn’t the right activity for me.
