Tuesday Treadlers – November 12, 2019

No horse race this week, only a mountain top challenge for coffee break.

Slovenia road sign - Steep hill downward

NO! Not this road, but a much easier rise to Mount Lofty Summit Cafe for coffee break somewhere around 11.00 am.


Our usual meeting place in Balhannah Oval for the 9.30 am start. Two suggested routes as shown on the sketch map:   TT NOV.12, 2019

Our pre-Christmas lunch ride will be at the Stanley Bridge Tavern in Verdun once again on Tuesday, December 3rd.  The outdoor settings under the umbrellas proved very popular, so will be repeated.  We usually book for 30, but around 40 always come along to enjoy the pleasant company.  More details to follow.

BYO nibbles and drinks for lunch and if practical a chair or two.  BBQ and fridge space available.  An optional $2 coin contribution could win you this year’s small fortune. Dress code completely optional: whether the morning’s cycling wear, ordinary garb or something quite fashionable if you wish. Lovely garden setting under the trees and plenty of undercover if necessary.   The popular WOODSIDE FARM EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL available for sampling.
