Adelaide Classic 2021 - 1 day or 3 day adventure

Our one day or three day cycling tour of some of best that Adelaide has to offer. 
 
Adelaide may have been known as the city of churches but it is fast becoming known as the best city in Australia for cycling. In our one or three day tour you will take in some of the highlights of what has made Adelaide cycling famous. 
 
Riders who experience Adelaide for the first time often come to the realisation that they have never ridden anything quite like Adelaide. Where else can you find so much beauty combined with epic roads – both descents and climbs – so close to the city? Adelaide is simply amazing.
 

What sort of bike do I require?  A road bike is recommended for the Adelaide ride.

Fundraising required? Each one day rider must raise at least $25 which is the fundraising minimum with a goal of $50. For the three day riders the minimum to raise is $225 with a goal of $500. If you do not reach the fundraising min, we ask that riders pay the difference to reach the minimum required.

  • Who should go on this ride?

    The ride caters to all riders from your lets give this a go and experience something amazing (avg speed 18-22km) to your mad keen rider doing 100s of kms per week (avg speed >32km). Each speed group has their own support vehicle so everyone is well catered for. Faster riders will be given additional distance each day to increase the challenge. Each riding group is supported by their own support vehicle.

  • How many can go on the ride?

    The ride is limited to 40 riders. The 25000spins ride is an exclusive ride to support ADRA and World Bicycle Relief.

  • I am a slow or medium rider. Do you cater to me?

    We certainly do. There will be a support vehicle to assist where required.

  • I am a fast rider. Do you cater to me?

    Absolutely. We pride ourselves in providing a challenging course for all rider levels. For faster riders we have a longer more challenging route for you.

  • Preparing for the ride

    Get your bike, body and gear into shape. To get maximum enjoyment from the ride, we recommend all riders make preparations well in advance to ensure their bodies and bikes are ready to roll.

    Cycling fitness:
    It’s important that you prepare your body for the ride. It is also important to realise that riding a tour is quite different from doing a big one day ride. To ensure your body is ready for the ride, we recommend you spend some time riding long climbs or doing hill repeats to get used to riding in a climbing position. We also recommend you try to include some hard consecutive days into your training to prepare your body to back up after a hard day.

    Positioning and bike fit:
    Positioning is also critical when attempting a tour. Small niggles that you get from time to time on the bike can be exacerbated by pushing yourself day after day. A bike fit can be a good investment in your safety and ride enjoyment.

    Cycling skills:
    If most of your riding is done solo or with a few friends, it is important that you get some practice riding in a bunch. Bunch riding is a way of cyclists sharing the workload and helping each other. The tighter the bunch the less effort is expended. However, an inexperienced bunch rider will find this a little awkward so it?best to get used to this by riding with others in the months leading up to the ride.

    Bike maintenance:
    Only a well maintained road bike is suitable for this type of ride. We recommend ensuring you have a suitable gear ratio to give you the best chance of conquering the hardest climbs. It is important that you have your bike serviced in the weeks leading up to the ride and that you have relatively new tyres to avoid punctures.

  • What happens if it rains?

    The 25000spins ride is an outdoor, all weather event which means we will still ride even if it?raining. Only extreme weather may cause cancellation of the day’s riding.

  • What happens if I get sick or injured?

    Safety is always our first priority. We have a number of First Aid certified people on the ride, so in case of emergency you will be in capable hands. If you are unable to ride due to an illness or injury, you can be a passenger in one of the support vehicles until you feel ready to rejoin the ride. If this isn?possible, then alternative arrangements will be made to transport you to a local hospital or medical centre.

  • What happens if my bike breaks?

    Unfortunately mechanical issues are part of bike riding and there is a reasonable chance that there will be some mechanical issues during the trip. You are responsible for ensuring your bike is in excellent condition prior to the ride. You also need to bring your own spare tubes and possibly a puncture repair kit.

    We do have a bike mechanic on tour to support. He will be happy to help you try to get back on the road. For some issues we will carry spare parts such as cables, chains, brake pads and cassettes that you can buy if you need them. For more significant issues, you will most likely need to hop in the sag wagon until we can get to a bike shop.
