Rider Testimonial – Bruce Bailey

2019 was my first year as a Mercer SuperCycle (MSC) rider. I use charity rides to motivate me to “keep peddling” and challenge myself. I’d done a 1-day ride and a three-day ride, so I was looking for a charity ride with 1,000kms in front of it. For me, MSC was a personal challenge to […]

Support Crew Testimonial – Gina Somers

This was my first year participating as Support Crew in the Mercer SuperCycle. The best thing about Mercer SuperCycle is the comradery!

Rider Testimonial – Andrew Walsh

This was my first year taking part as a rider in Mercer SuperCycle. Mercer SuperCycle is connected to the community and has a visible real impact to lives in South Australia. Many other charity rides are disconnected from the cause or fund recipients. The ride made safety a priority and the ride leadership stood out from […]

Day 2 Blog – Mercer SuperCycle 2019

My apologies for the typos in yesterday’s blog. Not up to the usual standard. Especially egregious was the misspelling of Traralgon, so a special sorry to Max and Madge. We spent the night at the New Terry Hotel (known to many South Australians as Wirrina Resort). We had a good feed, a couple of drinks […]


Day 1 Blog – Mercer SuperCycle 2019

So here we are for the 8th year of SuperCycle, with some old faces and some eager new recruits who are about to find out exactly what they signed up for. (Before I go any further, a shout out to Max and Madge of Taralgon, and Judith of Gawler, who have been avid supporters of […]
