Our annual end-of-year minigaine is the highlight of our calendar. Beginner and family friendly, everyone is encouraged to go out and have a good time. 

The course is set with families and newbies in mind, so there are plenty of check-points placed around the council’s bike paths, parks and historic points. However, if you want to go out hard, you will be challenged.

Packed full of the regular features you have come to expect and more. Returning to the hash house for post event food and some super spot prizes generously donated by surrounding businesses.

Plan. Cycle. Find.

Picture this, it’s Saturday April the 9th and you’ve got together with a friend or two and have entered 

the SA Rogaining Association’s Velogaine  - SA’s premier cycle navigation event. Currently you’re 

poring over a map working out how you will traverse the back roads and tracks of the Kapunda 

region in search of coveted Velogaine control points. Soon you’ll be cycling through some of SA’s 

most attractive countryside either hell bent on a big score or at a more leisurely pace so you can 

enjoy the views and the experience of being in the country. It’s a unique test of athletic and mental 

prowess or a pleasant ride – it’s up to you. After either 2 or 4 hours (also your choice) you’ll return to 

the Wheatsheaf Hotel at Allendale North and settle in for a counter lunch, some refreshments and 

après ride tall talk and performance excuse making. What could be better? Here are the details – see 

you in April!
