We can't believe it's already been a year since 2016's Swift Campout to Mannum! Last year we rode straight past Mount Crawford Forest and it reminded us how great a place it is - so we're heading back. Our shortest and (hopefully) easiest route to date means this is the perfect opportunity to get into riding your bike for more than one day at a time!
Come on down to Little Bang on Sunday, March 19 from 2-5 to try some of their delicious brews, get your belly full on TacoCat and get your head full of new bike touring knowledge!
Join us on Saturday January 21st for a group ride to the famous Willunga Hill Tour Down Under Stage. MAAP have partnered with local bike shop Treadly to bring you a great ride route and some surprises along the way.
The route will be signposted and we will be riding at an easy pace.
Out: 68KM, 1160m climbing. https://www.strava.com/routes/7376563
Halfway stop at Dawn Patrol Coffee in Kangarilla http://dawnpatrolcoffee.com.au/ to fuel up before continuing on to Willunga Hill.
Back: 58Km, 780m climbing. http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1402327474
We will be departing from Treadly at 9:00am. We suggest you arrive around 8:00am and enjoy a coffee and pastry on us before the roll out.
Friday mornings are for foothills, whether as one last pedal to get you through the last day of the working week, or a great way to warm up the legs and stop for a coffee before a big day out. We do this every week, and we want to take the focus off the hills for 5 minutes and show off some nice suburban roads for a change.
Welcome to Rapha's Thursday Passport Ride during the Tour Down Under 2017.
Today's ride will take you through the Adelaide hills for 95km with local ambassadors sharing their favourite routs. Coffee at the Rapha pop-up from 7am with a roll out at 8am.
The ride will not pass the tour, so head back to the pop-up to enjoy the action on the big screen.
Come down for a beer and pizza on us and a chat with Jack Thompson.
Jack is an ultra endurance cyclist who is currently riding to Adelaide in preperation for the Trans Australian World record ride (Perth to Sydney, approx 520km per day over 7 days) and other upcoming evnts such as the Transcontinental race (Belgium to Turkey).
He will be presenting at the Little Bang brewery to give you some insights into ultra endurance cycling training, nutrition, equipment and tips/tricks.
This wild week in January is the best time to ride a bike in Adelaide and this day's ride takes in a few of our best roads. A teeny bit of gravel and two of our favourite descents (one hairy, one just plain beautiful) make this a great day out on a bike, with some race watching thrown in at the Stirling circuit for a couple of laps.
We'll be taking you through the Adelaide hills for about 75km, and the forecast is hot, so please stock up on water and energy. Meet at Treadly Bike Shop at 8:30am for espresso with a 9am departure.
Thanks to the legends at VCC for leading out this ride. Enjoy the lazy day!
Brompton Bicycle racing returns to #Australia for the first time since 2014!

Registration is open now - https://goo.gl/LRIq4y
International Brompton Race Rules apply: Jacket and tie dress code & Le Mans start - racers must unfold their bike before commencing to ride.
We're very proud to say that the Treadly Bike Hire Brompton Sprint is an Associated Event for the 2017 #SantosTourDownUnder #TDU17
We've paired with Speedvagen to send you up to the first stage of the Tour Down Under! The back roads up to Mt Gawler are some of the most spectacular gravel roads the Adelaide Hills have to offer, and they're right around the corner from the pros coming through Kersbrook.
Led by Treadly's newest recruit and Speedvagen Maap CX team member and photographer Andy Rogers, we'll take you through some of our favourite roads closer to home on your way back into town in time to catch the Treadly Bike Hire Brompton Sprint and the Women's Tour Stage 4 Crit at Victoria Park.
Missed it? Catch all the action here!
The First Sunday of the Tour Down Under week has quickly become a huge celebration of cycling in Adelaide, and for the last couple of years we’ve closed our street to bring a little Treadly flavour to that. This year’s event will be a showcase of all things Australian in the cycling world, and we’d love for you to come down and be a part of it.
MAKER will be a mini-exhibition of frame builders, craftspeople, brands, organisations and artists within the Australian cycling world, introducing new and revisiting old while allowing you to see a little more of the grassroots that make Aussie cycling great and put faces to the names.
Entry will be totally free with coffee, food and drink available all day, and products available for purchase from some of the leading brands in Aussie cycling.
Keep an eye on the Facebook event page for updates on which of your favourite brands will be here!

The Santos Tour Down Under is the biggest cycling event in the souther hemisphere, so jump on your Brompton for the Adelaide Urban Challenge. The Urban Challenge isn't a race.

It'll be a grand, fun day out for Adelaide's Brompton Bicycle community, and we'd love to see you there.

On Sunday 28th of August we’re rolling out for a tour of Adelaide’s backstreets and alleyways. The Boucle De Burbs will be the perfect opportunity to devote your Sunday to fun times in the saddle, shared with friends and family, and discovering a different route through the inner suburbs.
June 25 & 26 marks the second of what will undoubtedly be endless Winter Solstice Campouts inspired by Swift Industries - one we're stoked to again be a part of. This time we'll be heading North instead of South, hitching a lift on the train to Gawler first thing on Saturday morning to ride the back way to the Murray River at Mannum. Sunday will see us climb up Pym Road out of Tepco and back over the Lofty Ranges via some of our favourite roads - soaking up some of the best vistas the Adelaide Hills have to offer.
This will be an unsupported ride, so you will need to either bring individually or organise within the group to bring food, water and shelter for the night in Mannum. There will be water refills available throughout the day but we recommend carrying no less than 2L, and you should make sure you come prepared for inclement weather down the river.
Though we are talking about two 100km days in a row, loaded up with gear - you needn't worry about pace or whether you can do it! We're not the kind of people who'll leave you behind in the middle of nowhere, and the pace of the day will be very slow. We anticipate an average of no more than 20km/h with plenty of regrouping and longer breaks spread throughout the day.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email email@example.com, or head over to the Facebook event and ask away!
We're going for a wild brew again - same route, same time, same place, new beans! Meet at the shop at 6:00AM on the first day of winter we'll be drinking coffee by quarter past 7 and soaking in the (hopefully) beautiful winter sun!
The Tour Down Under is upon us and the CyclingTips team will be heading over to get caught up in the atmosphere and cover the race. For those of you who are in Adelaide next week, we'll be hosting a few rides and we'd love for our readers to join us!
Stage 5, Willunga Hill is the day of days at the Tour Down Under. To make the most of the day we'll be heading out to Willunga with the MAAP/ Treadly group ride which will be taking you out via the scenic route (includes a small amount of gravel): approx 70km. Meet at Treadly Bike shop at 7:30am for a 8:00am rollout.
At the top of the hill, there'll be a spot for you 200m from the finish to watch the race unfold.
Route available here: https://www.strava.com/routes/3984940
2nd hand goodies from Adelaide’s bicycle community/collectors including 10 - 30 % off a selection of Treadly’s bikes, parts & Accessories.

On the 25th of August we’re rolling out for a tour of Adelaide’s backstreets and alleyways. The Boucle De Burbs will be the perfect opportunity to devote your Sunday to fun times in the saddle, shared with friends and family, and discovering a different route through the inner suburbs.
The Boucle is not designed to be a race, nor a grueling journey, but instead an outing with prospects for taking in the scenery and happening upon some perfect spots for a refreshing and refueling snack, lunch, brew or beverage. The course has been mapped out not only to track as many lanes as possible but also to pass some of Adelaide’s best cafes that are peppered through the burbs.
So, let’s hope for fine weather (or prepare with a raincoat and fenders) because rain or shine the 2nd Boucle De Burbs is going to set off from Bonython Park Pond from 12pm Sunday August 25th. To registration and collect your ticket, click below. The course is approximately 40km and you have the day to complete it, so take your time and enjoy the ride.
There are prizes galore so get creative, the more you standout the better your chances. Veggie Velo will also be cooking up a storm at the conclusion of the day’s event.
REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED
Kids under 12 use ride for $5.
