The idea is that we will have several rides planned out by various members to try to cover the different interests of our riders. Hopefully, there will be some short, all bike trail rides, some more challenging rides on dirt roads and some longer roadie type rides. There may even be a lunch ride to a winery and back. Some of the rides will involve a drive to the start and possibly a car shuffle. The first day’s ride will be pre-arranged. We will have our usual 5pm Happy Hour each afternoon and at this time members can decide what ride they would like to attempt the next day and someone may need to step up and lead it. Several of us on the committee will have prepared a ride or two but if any member has an idea for a ride in these areas please, we would love to hear from you. At this stage we do not have the rides fully prepared only some ideas. Just before the event we will let the participants know more details. Both the Clare Valley and the Fleurieu Peninsula are perfect for cycling adventures.
