South Australian road cycling clubs???

Postby Camac Attack » Sun Oct 14, 2012 7:56 pm

Hey guys,

Currently I'm looking for a club in SA dedicated to road racing- but all I can find is clubs for Track cycling.

I have found a few clubs dedicated to road cycling- but they are way out the other side of Adelaide- and I was looking for something a bit closer :wink:

If you have any info I'd love to hear from you

Cheers

Vets clubs are

All have a good road race program with combined events usually once a month.

norwood, port adelaide, central districs, south coast are all pretty active in road racing. It doesn't really make a huge difference what club you join if you just want to race.

Thanks guys, I had actually found some of them, but most are track related - not so much road racing :?

Hi Camac,

The clubs I posted do NO track racing so look at those.

Thanks Daccordi Rider, and I know the clubs you posted have no track- but they are a group of veterans- whereas I'm only 15 :wink:

It may help if you let us know which part of Adelaide you are from.

Have a chat with Noel at Bike Station, Brighton Rd, Hove. I reckon he could point you in the right direction, he does a fair bit of work with junior cyclists. i know Port Adelaide have junior riders, I suspect most clubs do.
Or wait 20 years and join the vets clubs, we're a friendly bunch :wink:
Kuota Kharma, Fuji Altamira and an MTB thingy.

Any particular reason you want a "dedicated" road cycling club? It really doesn't matter, as all clubs do all races. I'm a bit confused as to why you think that all the clubs listed only do track - track is tiny in comparison to road in Adelaide. Norwood organises the crit series, most of the clubs will organise a few road races during winter.

these days joining a club is just something you have to do to get a CA license

it doesnt matter which club you join at all, go with the cheapest
if i get killed while out on my bike i dont want a 'memorial ride' by random punters i have never met.
