Event Description

Time for another group ride Superstars! We've had a number of requests to hit the Southern Veloway, so this is your chance! If you've never ridden the Veloway, you really should join us for this ride!

Depending on numbers and ability, first port of call will be McLaren Vale for coffee. Personally, if I'm heading this far South for a ride, (I live out North), I always get the urge to go to Willunga and climb that hill! We'll see on the day how the group feels about that extra challenge!

We can always have a couple of Angus's buses pick up riders along the way. My route to get to the Southern Veloway is Salisbury Highway to South Road, then just keep on pedalling down South Rd!

I ride rain, hail or shine, so am looking forward to a good stretch of the legs with some great little challenges.

I hacve added the start point of the New India Market, as there may be parking here for those who require it. It is also the real start of the Veloway I believe.

If you want to wait at Seacombe, that's cool, it is only a few minutes up from the Market, and we can pick you up on the way!

Here's hoping for a great ride!

No worries Clive, there were a few bumps along that track. Never fear, we will head back along there again for another ride. It's a fantastic cycleway.

Sorry I had to pull out, front deraillier wasn't working and I couldn't get low gears for those bumps. Good new according to Mr Clark is that their cheap to replace so I should be all set up for my next weekend off

Hi Helen. EPO is what Jim puts in his ANZAC biscuits, which he is so kind to distribute at times on some of these rides. It enables us old guys to get home after attempting to keep up with Jim. But don't tell anybody as the UCI will ban us all, if we are caught. PS I am joking of course.
But Jims ANZACs are superb.

Guys, it looked like a brilliant day out just reading about it / looking at the photo's - I am hoping there will be another Tour planned soon. This time no mishaps......

Oh dear, i can't help myself, but, if you over indulge with these biscuits you are likely to get Elevated Poo Odour
