TUESDAY TREADLERS January 8th, 2019

Laratinga Cafe

Another pleasant cycling day forecast for Tuesday, so meet as usual for the 9.30 am start in Balhannah Oval. Off to Mount Barker for mid-ride break in the Laratinga Cafe (just off the bikeway) around 11.00 am.

Two suggested routes once again, approx. 50 kms. or 70 kms. Sketch map reference below.

TT JAN. 8, 2019

Watch out for T.D.U. teams out for a leisurely spin before the big event.

If you are impatient and need to see the New Year in at midnight and into the early hours, you will certainly not feel like joining the others on the Tuesday Treadlers rides.  However,the weather forecast is offering another pleasant day for cycling, so should you feel inclined why not meet the others in Balhannah Oval for the 9.30 am start.  There is no ‘away ride’ planned for January.

It would appear that there will be a couple of venues open for coffee break in Birdwood around 11.00 am, so head in that direction by your favourite route. See sketch map attached showing a couple of suggestions. Best to avoid the road between Mt.Torrens and Tungkillo as it is being realigned and widened to allow the increasing number of B-Double trucks to maintain a high speed on their way to Lobethal Abattoir.

TT JAN.1, 2019

The TOUR DOWN UNDER starts on Tuesday January 15th in Port Adelaide, so no organised Tuesday Treadlers rides on this day.  The four stage Women’s T.D.U starts on Thursday January 10th in Hahndorf.

T.T. December 25th, 2018

What an ideal weather forecast for cycling next Tuesday.  No rain,  max. 30 degrees and only a light breeze.  However, no Tuesday Treadlers rides planned for Christmas Day.

The following Tuesday is New Years Day and a few riders are keen for a ride to be organised for the first day of 2019.  Meet in Balhannah Oval at the usual time.  Details to follow.

See you next year



With no rides planned for Christmas Day, this coming Tuesday will be the final scheduled rides for the year.


The last two attempts to head to Gumeracha were not successful due to rain, so we may be lucky this time. As it’s coming up for Christmas it seems quite appropriate to head to the Toy Factory in Gumeracha for our coffee break somewhere around 11.00 am.  We generally refer to it as the Giant Rock Horse Bistro.  Meet in Balhannah Oval for the 9.30 am start.

Our lunch gathering last week seemed to be enjoyed by all 40 of us. The weather was ideal for dining under the umbrellas in the garden, four tables each with 10 of us was ideal for socialising.  We were particularly delighted to welcome John Pfitzner and his wife Viv.

The Tuesday Treadlers rides coordinator wishes to thank all the riders for their continued support and generosity.  See you at coffee on Tuesday.
