About the Adelaide Cycling Club.

The Beginning

The Adelaide Cycling Club (formerly Eastern Districts) was established in 1954 by a small breakaway group of riders and since then has grown to be one of Adelaide`s prominent amateur clubs.

Along the way it has played a vital role in producing some of the most successful and exciting cyclists that this, and in fact other countries have seen. Some of our successful cyclists have been, Brett Aitken (2000 Olympic Games Champion), Luke Kuss and Mathew Sparnon (World Junior Team Pursuit Champions), Vicki Birks (World Masters Track Champion) and Alayna Burns (1998 Commenwealth Games Champion).

The Club places a high priority on the Development of young riders and considers it`s riders to be it`s main asset. Allan Smith (deceased) one of Adelaide`s longest serving presidents devoted many years in aiding the development of Junior cycling in South Australia.

The Present

The Adelaide Cycling Club still promotes junior racing and it runs it's two events each year, The Allan Smith Memorial and the Peter Stevens road race in which the club still attracts a large number of junior cyclists to the events.

The club is still producing successful members with the most current being Roahn Dennis of the Garmin Sharp World Tour Team.

Allan Smith Road Race

The Allan Smithroad race will be run on the 17th June 2017 in Gumeracha. Once again it will run on the testing Kangarilla circuit which was Allan Smith's favourite circuit. Last year was not a good year for the history of the race and the club had to cancel the event. This year we will like to see as many riders as possible competing in the event over all grades including our Junior racing.
