Adelaide cycle training rides - Weekly training rides are a great way to
get some more bunch riding experience, push yourself a little more than the solo
ride and help with the motivation to get out of bed on those cold morning.
RIDES –The Norwood Club’s focus is to provide the best racing possible for
it’s members. We have a club coach, Dave
Gomer who is available for advice.
Occasionally the club Captain, Frank Smith, arranges group rides.
Details of these will be published on the clubs Facebook page and / or the
The rides listed are existing rides
that have their own philosophies and if you wish to join them, you need to understand
what they are trying to achieve and respect their ideas. For example some may
wish to ride at 35kph on the flat, whilst others are full on sessions that will
average 50kph. Not all of these rides are looking to have lots of riders join
them, so you will need to respect that also and not take it personally if you
are not welcomed! Look over the rides which realistically best suit you, join
a group, and give it a try.
you already have a weekly ride organised and would like to have club members
or other riders join your ride please email
us the details and we will post the details below for you.
