Great racks

Safe places to lock up you bike is an ongoing issue - at the station, in the city, uni or workplaces by at sometime we all have to secure it to a pole, dedicated bike rack or tree.

Dear Portland, OR - best cycling city in the world?

I romanticise places too easily. Last week I spent a good hour looking at pictures of Iceland, then there is the Alaska from Northern Exposure, New Zealand from in flight magazines gets me interested with pictures of those cosy cafes and the draw of coffee and brownies, Vietnam for, amongst a list if things, a cycling trip. I went to the lake district drawn from memories… Continue

How this site came about.

I've been asked how the Adelaide Cyclists website, or social network if you prefer, came about.

I had seen Sydney and Melbourne cyclist sites built on this same platform with around 700+ members and forums seeing a lot of discussions being had. Having moved from Sydney to Adelaide not quite two years ago and have been impressed with Adelaide as a cycling city (and then events like the TDU take it off the scale!)

I was not a road bike rider (I have just started riding a Giant OCR2). Most of my… Continue

From Parafield Gardens, return trip is just over 200km taking the direct route. I tend to head straight out along South Rd, hook onto the veloway, (a fantastic but underutilised path), which gets you safely to McLaren Vale. Ride from there through to Willunga for a nice leg stretch up Willunga Hill and on to Victor from there. I stop off at Mt Compass for water just so I know I have enough to get me there.

Sometimes I take the extra km options, and explore off onto the other bike tracks that cut into the veloway, and take you out to Hallett Cove etc.

Subway is a prime location where you can rest for a bit at one of their tables watching the world go by, before you hit out for the return trip.
