"Doing this ride will give you something to brag about. How many people can say they've ridden the two longest hills in SA? Pichi Richi Pass (up to Quorn) and the Germain Gorge Rd are both longer than any hill around Adelaide (and the gradients…"

"Easy to go round on the right side, even on 28mm slick tyres. I even saw a mountainbike go through that side at speed. Or just slow down for the 10m."

"Yeah, I rode the Linear Park to the beach yesterday and found the path open. Still a bit of a construction site with signs asking cyclists to dismount but I was glad to not be forced onto the roads."

Hey Shane, got your message. Hope your ride went well today! Im not sure what my plans are for next weekend as yet, but CVSA ride might be a go :)

Hey Shane, im waiting to hear back from someone re a ride for this Sunday, and was thinking that if that fell through - i could make a debut appearance with your crew...if that was still an option! ...will you be heading out this Sunday?
At 11:26 on April 27, 2011, Sam said…
Sounds great!! I will come along this Sunday (i will be away the following weekend). Re insurance, while i am not a Bicycle SA member, I do have a Cycling Aust Licence, which includes insurance...hope this is sufficient! ;-)

Hi Shane, thanks for adding the post 'what's your excuse for not cycling' to Stumbleupon. I was doing some digging about and looking at the site analytics and that post had a lot of traffic. I dug some more and found the traffic had come from Stumbleupon. I also added the site to Stumble because I know how it can help searchability.

Cheers
Angus

Hi Shane, sorry, not sure what coffee shop we will hit when we get there, guess it will depend on who wants to go where, and how many people are already at the coffee shops!

When I head through this way, it is normally on one of my Victor return rides, & I only really stop at Victor on these for a quick bite before heading home again.
