Consider this a call to arm's (wheels)! I'm condemned to the flats for a few months while i build strength in my knee, and i'm looking for some good blokes to ride with (no dickheads policy apply's). And unless there are any complaints  I'm hijacking the ride schedule for the month of February and prescribing beach cruises! Homburg please forward all complaints to

 I'll be doing easy/mild beach rolls, so if you've been planing your 'come back' now is the time, also good  if you want to take your revenge and put me in the box while you can. 

Come for a roll Bitches! FS

BUPA Challenge 2015


Our meeting point for the BUPA Challenge is the corner of Augusta St and Colley Tce as it can be approached by any of the streets off Anzac Highway. 

The Off is at 6:30  am so meet here from 6:00 am 

As usual we will try our best to organise groups to ride together with designated regroups at the top of the climbs.  

If the fast boys can reserve a spot for us at the finish and text to those still on the road it would be appreciated.

I will start an email chain Tuesday for return options and other assistance. If you are riding the shorter distances please reply to the chain so we know you are on the road.

TDU Week is Here.

Okay apologies for the late update, 

Sunday is the start of the TDU and of a number of other Rides are one as well that I know several of our group are participating in 

Given the number of people doing other rides, I will follow the pattern set from previous years and the BG Official rides for this Sunday and the next is the Outer Harbour to Anzac Hwy Beach Ride departing 7:30 am from the City.

For those doing the Ride like Crazy the meeting point as usual is by the entrance of the Unley Shopping Centre and Under the trees in the South Eastern corner of the Oval at the finish.

I will put a Bupa Challenge specific post on the blog next week.  If anyone is planning a Ride associated with the TDU and wants me to post it please drop me a note

Good Luck whatever your Ride is over the next week, say safe and enjoy the TDU.

Sunday Ride the 10th of January

Hi everyone

Sorry for not updating the blog. I have been to busy enjoying myself and riding lots to make up for overeating and general laxness.

Sundays ride is slated for the Hills Ride number 3 to Mylor. However there were weather alerts for the Hills up until this Morning and its still doesn't look pleasant. Hence after conferring with AW yesterday  I thought it best  that we should meet in the city at 7:30 am and a group decision will be made.

Hopefully the rain abates for the morning and we can get a ride in.
