COVID SUNDAY – 1 December 2020 – 9080114

Organiser – Peter Roodhouse, Ph. 8278 3439 or  mobile 0418 844 963

To Comply with South Australian Government health directives, all of our Sunday rides from 14 December 2020 will follow COVID SUNDAY – 1 December 2020 – 9080114 See also SA Government’s recovery guidelines for COVID-19.

The usual departure point for rides from the city centre is Victoria Square in the small park adjacent to the Cathedral. It is a good idea to confirm this for each ride and check the time of departure. As all rides are led by volunteers there is no guarantee they will want to start from there.

Country Rides

For country rides beginning elsewhere, usually a town outside Adelaide, riders need to arrange their own transport. Other club members may be able to assist. The telephone number of the ride leader is always provided and it is prudent to check for any change in the meeting place details.


For all scheduled SARCC Rides, if the Adelaide forecast maximum, as at 6.00 p.m. the evening before the ride is 35 degrees Celsius or over and/or the fire danger warning in the area of the ride is designated “Severe, Extreme, Catastrophic” the leader has the right to cancel the ride without notice.


All riders should carry a pump, a puncture repair kit and a water bottle, and when necessary an effective raincoat. Bring lunch or money to buy some. Unless otherwise indicated rides are planned so that there will be somewhere to buy lunch.

Rides Protocol document is available  for viewing and printing. It outlines the responsibilities of ride leaders and cyclists on club rides.
