Don't forget Goodieson in McLaren Vale, Lobethel Bierhaus, Gulf Brewery, and the Plethora in the Barossa.

Thanks, haven't been to Goodieson or The Piethora, will defiantly try those, the last Micro brew tasting I went to was a couple of weeks ago at The Rob Roy where they paired Thunder Rd Brewery (Vic) with some pub food, good night, they have those as regular events.

Plethora means many, there are many in the Barossa.

The Rob Roy does a good show, Have you done the Adelaide beer walk through Foodi? top afternoon, you can easily get quite tanked on that walk! My wife bought me a ticket for my Birthday and we had a great time learning about all the Adelaide brews.

Ok, that now makes sense, yes have done the foodi tour a couple of years ago now, have also been on a couple of bus beer tours, if you ever do one of those ensure that the bus is licensed.
Also a lot of good metro breweries, Big Shed is good at Royal Park as is Little Bang at Stepney, and Brew Boys and Pirate life buy yet to get to those

Hmm maybe a ride day today, looking out of the window weather looks good, the roads should have dried out as the rest of the week will be high 30's, low 40's, which is good and bad, bad that's its hot when you stop, good that it will chew out that OEM tyre more so than usual

I'm sure that will draw a crowd. I am busy, but may see if I can sneek out for a ride.

Did you get out for a squirt yesterday? I rode to work, the gym and home, but no time to get into the hills.

Yes indeed, did my usual run plus Barker to the Pony and dropped by the Stanley Bridge, Clarendon Rd was appalling so much crap on the road, bark, branches/twigs and dirt and the lycras were out hogging the road for that extra measure of fun

Talking about the gym, off I go in a few minutes, got to keep fitish in my declining years.

Hopefully go for a ride again on friday, and Sunday all things being equal, weathers right for it

Sunday morning is looking good for a ride. Hopefully a lot of the rubbish will be blown off the roads by then.

It was predominately the Clarendon Rd that was full of crap, Kangarilla, Dashwood Gully, Bulls Creek, Strath Rd, Strath to Echunga were all good.

Never know might see you on the road one day or in one of the pubs en route:icon_beer:

I'm torn Dustin. Working from home equals a lot less saddle time. Now I live where I can ride all I want and I have less excuses to ride! Time to burn some weekends!

Myself, have had sailing experience in yachts, crewed out the CYCSA in the twighlight series on several trailer sailers and competed in several across the gulf races to Vincent although its been a few years now, but now days stick with power boats/tinnies and fish, or try to at least :)

Where do you race, north or south

Not that its relevant but had a decent lunch at the Manly Skiff Club just before Christmas

The beauty of being retired is that you can take advantage of fine weather during the week and not get caught up with the traffic pandemonium that is the weekend

Had a ride here in Sweden last sunday. Was almost 4 months ago. Cold as hell, but could not resist after I had done some servicing :)
After you been away from it for so long it really strikes you how incredibly fast this thing is!
