Adelaide time!

I have seen so little of Australia apart from the Eastern seaboard... so its been great to get a bit further west for once. In Adelaide this weekend for my friend Jon's wedding, and snuck the bikes down for a few cheeky rides.

The Adelaide hills are fantastic for a ride with plenty of variety, alas with limited time here we have only been able to sample a small amount. The ride up to Lobethal is pretty spectacular and going in a clockwise direction you get the benefit of a limited number of hills after sinking a pie and coffee at the Lobethal cafe. Adelaide is well set up for cycling with wide roads and less aggression (than found in Sydney) between the road using fraternity.

Hit the wedding on Saturday afternoon out at Bird in Hand winery near Woodside - what a picturesque location, complete with a crop duster taking off during the vows which called some chuckling from the crowd. Great ceremony, great couple, interesting moves on the dancefloor, and some fun hungover moves to the airport early the next morning. See you Adelaide, hopefully not too long until I'm back.
