Tuesday Treadlers – September 10, 2019

This Tuesday it will be 6 weeks since we last headed to Mount Barker for our mid-ride coffee break, so once again off to the Laratinga Cafe, adjacent to the bikeway.  Riding at a steady pace should get you to coffee by 11.00 am, although if you are particularly desperate for your cafeine fix they open at 8.30 am.


Meet as usual in Balhannah Oval for the 9.30 am start. The two optional suggested routes are on the sketch map.

Tuesday Treadlers – September 3 ,2019

It was far too cold and wet for most of our riders last time we planned to head for coffee break in Meadows, but now Spring is here we ought to enjoy somewhat milder weather for our September ‘away’ ride.


Once again meet in Mylor oval for the 9.30 am start, scheduling to arrive in Meadows around 11.00 am at the Mawson House Cafe on the main road. Sketch Map of the suggested optional routes can be found here:    TT SEP.3, 2019



Getting close to sun cream time




Tuesday Treadlers – Rides August 20, 2019


If you enjoy riding in the rain there is a small possibility of a shower or two this week.  So we will head for coffee break in the Lobethal Bakery at WOODSIDE.


Most of us start from Balhannah Oval at 9.30 am and arrive for mid-morning break around 11.00 am.  The routes suggested last time we headed to Woodside seemed particularly popular, so let’s repeat them.      

The sketch map of the two routes ought to be found on:   TT AUG.20, 2019

Tuesday Treadlers – Rides August 13, 2019


Gumeracha for morning coffee once again. Most riders meet in the Giant Rocking Horse Bistro around 11.00 am.

Starting in Balhannah Oval at 9.30 am. there are two optional routes as usual. The sketch map of the suggested routes can be seen on:   AUGUST 13, 2019



 They are out there watching for us somewhat earlier this year. Spread the word about locations you come across. Halfway down Mappinga Road is a particular favourite.  Wearing a helmet is the best protection. Apparently anything sticking out of the top of the helmet is best avoided as the ears and eyes will then be the target. Oddly enough wearing orange, yellow or purple makes you particularly vulnerable.  Also best to ride in a group.




Tuesday Treadlers – Rides August 6, 2019


Lots of parking space for the start of our August AWAY rides next to the tennis courts in Newnam Road, Charleston.
