In what turned out to be a pretty devastating crash this morning, Alf and Aldo both came down hard at the back of the bunch just after Outer Harbour.

Aldo came off second worst with plenty of lost bark and some bleeding and bruising, but Alf has managed to come off worst with an undisplaced fracture of the pelvis.

No weight bearing and an 8 week recovery for Alf, with 1-2 weeks out for Aldo.

It's a terrible start to the Christmas break for both of them and on behalf of the BG we wish them both a speedy recovery.

On this note, we wish all the BG riders a very safe Christmas break, as many are upping the km's ahead of the TDU ride and we hope that there are no more injuries.

Alf and Aldo, on behalf of all the BG guys we hope that you manage to salvage a good Christmas despite today's crash and we look forward to catching up with you both either on or off the bike soon.

If you've ever watched one of those Rapha videos and thought I'd love to ride there......well now you can.....and you probably already do every weekend.

Small cameo from club captain Frank at the 2:00 mark, and again Frank is climbing at 2:47.

The credits list Bastardi Gruppetto at 5th place with a time of 6 hours 17 minutes, which should be enough to let you know this was no easy day out. Well done to the guys that rode it....there's no way I could have done that sort of time.



Yep, it's that time of the year when Brian leads the BG crew on some reconnaissance riding following the BUPA challenge route.

Full map here

Follows the old freeway, down to meadows, echunga, and onto the KOM at Myponga. Here we will leave the rest of the route and head back to Adelaide via South Road to Aldinga, Old Coach Road to Seaford,  Take the bikeway along side the southern expressway to Darlington, then South Road to Daws Road, Winston Avenue, Grange Road, and Unley Road back in to the city.

Usual theme for these rides is to stick together as a group. Depending on numbers we may split in to two groups. However, no-one will be left by themselves.

Hindmarsh Square - 7:30am
Toll Gate - 8am
Bollards - 8:40am

Regroup. Leave Bollards at 8:45am
Further regroups at the top of the biggest hills (after Meadows, Mt. Compass & Myponga KOM)
Coffee/Chat at somewhere suitable after the myponga KOM.
