heading to Adelaide new week looking for a place close to wilunga to hire bike

Postby archetuthus » Mon May 16, 2016 12:46 pm

Hey All,

I'm heading off to Adelaide next week and staying at the folks place in Wilunga. Now obviously being right next to Old Wilunga Hill Road I would love to get out there and do a few repeats or just ride around this area/McLaren vale/Aldinga. I can't bring my own bike, so wondering if there's a good shop around I can hire a road bike. I can bring my own shoes and my pedals if necessary. Just looking for some recommendations of rides in the area other than this classic hill and good shop to hire from.

Thanks
Archetuthus

Oxygen Cycles in McLaren Vale hire bikes as does the The Carriage Cafe. I have only seen hybrids, tandems or Mtbs but Oxygen may have roadies.
Velo Porte in Adelaide hire road bikes, haven't used them but I believe they are good quality bikes.

Give Keith a call at Velo-porte. He runs mainly Specialized, with a few Fondriest.

Just wanted to say thanks for the recommendations. In the end went with oxygen due to proximity and got a hire of a specialized roubaix sl4 for $80. Customer service at the shop was great really good local knowledge and gave me some good insight and added more ideas into my ride. Definitely recommend the shop and service. Would hire again next visit to Adelaide and try and get more in.
Cheers
