SuperCycle 2013, Day 2

Day 2 – 2013

And then there were 10 (only four of whom are called Mark). Having waved a sad farewell to the day riders last night, the group felt a lot smaller this morning (probably because it was). We got up to a lovely morning in the Clare valley, with the support crew putting on a great assortment […]

SuperCycle 2013, Day 1

Day 1 (addendum)

Now that I’ve had a bit of sleep, there’s a few impressions from yesterday that I didn’t mention last night. Firstly, we live in a gorgeous part of the world. The ride from Athelstone up Gorge Rd, and on to Kersbrook, Williamstown and Lyndoch is absolutely fabulous. You can’t get much better than the scenery […]

SuperCycle 2013, Day 1

Day 1 – 2013

As the saying goes, what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. This is a load of bollocks. Whoever came up with this obviously hadn’t tried to ride 185kms from Adelaide to Clare in a day.

Cheer Home our SuperCyclists

In 2 weeks time the 2013 Rabobank SuperCyclists will set off on their journey to travel over 1000kms across regional South Australia. Along the way they’ll engage with the local communities, stop in at schools, conquer long days, endure unpredictable weather and defeat hills that just don’t quit! They are doing it all to help […]
