Wiggle newby!

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Mon, 26/11/2012 - 14:30

Hi Guys,

Just wondering if Wiggle's estimated shipping times are usually correct? I've never used the site before and I'm starting to get more into cycling, so I thought I'd jump on some of the good Christmas specials they have going at the moment. I've snapped up some good bargains (I think), can't wait for them to get here! PS(sorry if this topic has been covered before)



camera GPS problem

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Sun, 25/11/2012 - 19:36

Need help working out GPS in camera.

Last year camera was indicating Brisbane landmark when on the Gold Coast. When the tour coach returned to Brisbane, the camera thought it was on the Gold Coast. Does not help when taking photos of cycling facilities.…

Gully Grinders Sun 25th Hills Ride

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Sun, 25/11/2012 - 17:32

I don't know if it's the hot weather or I just need to get fitter but today’s ride seemed harder than i was expecting.

6 of us pedalled along a different group of roads from our normal Sunday outings. Micheal Smyth showed us a few of "the roads less travelled" and then some.

If i was guessing it seemed like we went bombing down Grove Rd. and then climbed early only to descend so we could go up another steeper climb.

There wasn't much traffic out on these roads so the…

Bike mechanic wanted

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Sun, 25/11/2012 - 14:55

I am time-poor (and also, if I am honest, a little unsure of my own abilities as a bike mechanic).

I have purchased (from Euro BikeParts, USA) a new Dura-Ace compact crankset, bottom bracket, 11-28 cluster and chain, but because I am in the middle of moving house I can't find the time to fit them to my beloved Specialized Roubaix Pro.

Is there a willing bike mechanic - in the inner southern suburbs, preferably, who could do the job for me?  Obviously, I am willing to pay - but…

SSRC P and L Ride Report - Penney's Hill and Aldinga

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Sat, 24/11/2012 - 22:16

The SSRC L and P rides both left from McLaren Vale today, heading for Silver Sands at Aldinga. The L ride took our more usual route and the P ride took a new route (route here) which sent our riders up Penney's Hill, along the Range, down Willunga Hill and out towards the sea - essentially following part of the Tour Down Under route but doing it backwards.

I'm starting to feel like a new teacher at a school, where all…

Cycling on the road and the law - $110 fines!

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Sat, 24/11/2012 - 20:27


I was riding away from Woodside this evening (towards Lobethal) when I was pulled over by a traffic cop.

He asked me why I was riding on the road. He then gave me a 'friendly warning' that it is an offence not to use a bicycle lane when provided. A discussion ensued, whereupon he produced a copy of the road traffic code, stating that a $110 fine applies when a rider fails to use a bicycle lane when one is provided.

Obviously, there is no bicycle lane there, but the…

Moron Motorist

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Thu, 04/10/2012 - 10:09

Just had an email from a good mate. He was out riding with his girlfriend near Mylor  when a couple of bozzos in a Commodore with P plates buzzed them and the passenger leant out and whacked my friends gf on the backside. My friend got a nice photo of the car as it sped off and reported the incident to the Stirling Police Station. Turns out the driver is a known offender and the vehicle is unregistered.

My friend didnt say what colour the car is but Im betting its the same bozzos in…

Broken Glass on Coast to Vines Bike Track - Seaford Heights

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Wed, 03/10/2012 - 19:45

For users of the bike track into Mclaren Vale, I came across a very neat line of broken beer bottle glass this morning at about 9:30. It was laid 

across the entire width of the track (both lanes), adjacent to the bench seats, just south of the Barbados Dr crossing in Seaford Heights. Clearly targeted at cyclists, as it was too well placed to be anything but a mallicious act. I was able to sweep it off the track with some dead bush. Please be…

Ride Like Crazy 2013

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Wed, 03/10/2012 - 16:27

RLC has opened for registrations for 2013. Just visit the website for all the details.

It's good to see that the rumoured changes to the route and start/finish location didn't eventuate.

Why are we so far behind?

Adelaide Cyclists discussions - Wed, 03/10/2012 - 14:41

Great post from NZ showing how utterly primitive road construction/infrastructure in AU/NZ is http://transportblog.co.nz/2012/08/08/why-i-love-the-netherlands/

This morning I was nearly taken out by a car that was flying through the roundabout at Grant Avenue/Prescott Tc (Grant Ave is supposedly a bikefriendly road - pigs arse - one long painted bike lane where I am just waiting for a car door to be flung…
