TUESDAY TREADLERS MARCH 28, 2020

ORGANISED TUESDAY TREADLERS RIDES ARE SUSPENDED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

if you do come up on Tuesdays for a small group ride, do not gather in Balhannah Oval if there are more than 10 of you, otherwise it has now become illegal if more than 10 of us are seen together, either in the Oval or elsewhere. An individual on-the-spot fine of $1,000 applies.

May be best to ride on your own.

However, small group rides are still allowed for the time being , so a few of our riders still gather in Balhannah Oval on Tuesdays for a ride ***,   route/s decided on the day.   Most of our favourite coffee break locations are still able to supply take-away coffee, but remember we are not to remain in or immediately outside the cafe.

***    IT IS NOW ILLEGAL FOR MORE THAN 10 OF US TO BE SEEN TOGETHER IN BALHANNAH OVAL OR ANYWHERE ELSE.  INDIVIDUAL ON THE SPOT FINES OF $1,000 WILL APPLY.

Also remember, no groups of more than 10 riders and keep a physical distance of at least 1.5 meters from another rider. Best not to touch any other rider’s bike or cafe door handles and avoid public toilets. Wash or sanitise your hands as appropriate.

LET’S HOPE WE CAN GET BACK TO NORMAL SOON.

TUESDAY TREADLERS – MARCH 24, 2020

The Office for Recreation and Sport encourages us all to remain active as much as possible.  What better way than to continue cycling.

Thank you to the numerous responses from our riders, with almost total support for continuing the Tuesday Treadlers’ rides.

NOW FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT

The  rides for Tuesday show a couple of suggested routes. The difference is that no mid-ride coffee break is planned. If you feel inclined we can enjoy a social coffee back in Balhannah after the ride.  Why not carry your own refreshment, or visit one of the many venues during your ride.  See the important conditions below, along with the usual sketch map on:   T.T. MARCH 24, 2020

TUESDAY TREADLERS – MARCH 17, 2020

It’s our ‘mix and match’ ride to Gumeracha this week.  Some riders ‘mix and match’ the RED and GREEN routes, either on the outward or return ride.  Also the choice of coffee venues, the old favourite Giant Rocking Horse Cafe or the newer Good Pantry on the main road opposite the hotel. The later was the more popular last time and the Giant Rocking Horse people are quite aware of this.

Good Pantry

Coffee break as usual somewhere around 11.00 am. after starting in Balhannah Oval at 9.30 am.  The sketch map of the suggested routes can be found on: T.T. MARCH 17, 2020

The group of cyclists man in road bicycle racing go to the mountain.

Could be the odd hill!

No doubt you have already guessed that the Cottage Bakery at 196 Main Road, McLaren Vale is expecting us around 11.00 am for our mid-ride refreshment break.  The two suggested routes are shown on the sketch map:    TT MAR,3, 2020
