I was about to post the exact same thing. Needs to be polished aluminum or change the name to something else!

Video: Troy Brosnan Shreds His Home Trails
It's all perspective, but after living there for 4 years, I saw very few shithole areas. Even Elizabeth, probably the toughest of suburbs is nothing compared to most cities. Adelaide is safe with low crime overall. Economic opportunity is another story, but that's what you get with a sleepy beach town surrounded by wineries.

@SvenNorske: Atlanta is very different than Adelaide in many ways. Atlanta is booming - construction everywhere, jobs galore and traffic is nuts. Adelaide is the opposite - minimal growth, not a ton of opportunity relatively and easy to get around. Adelaide is a city of 1.3 m people and sparse outside of an hours drive in any direction. While greater Atlanta is 6 m people and growing quickly. Plenty of other differences too - Atlanta is very diverse, Adelaide not diverse at all. Location and geography differences are obvious. But, you it's hard to beat Adelaide's riding and culture, especially for a city.

I lived in Adelaide for 4 years and I'm going back next week for a mate's wedding. Easy town to live in and get around. Ran into Troy in a café when I had some old friends visiting from the US. He was a champ and took our jokes and photos in stride while grabbing a coffee for another shuttle run with his mum.

Consider looking into driving out on the Great Ocean Road and riding the Otways. You won't have the vertical that you'd have with these spots but with the ocean nearby and trails in a temperate rainforest, it's damn cool. And there are some quaint towns to stop in on the way, Torquay, Bells Beach, Lorne and Apollo Bay.

@Beez177: I lived in Adelaide, South Australia for 4 years. I spent most of my water time in the ocean and sharks and jelly fish were a concern but pretty tame since the water is so cold. Pretty dry there but some swimming holes here and there. Big worry was snakes in the bush, not in the water. But honestly I see more snakes in Connecticut and Georgia on rides than I did there. Rednecks, aka bogans, were not a worry compared to our American versions. Be friendly and you'll get that in return by most. I rode some killer trails in South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania during my tenure. Related to the riding destinations here, I'll let the Victorians answer that.

@Beez177: Whoa, I didn't know that there were bull sharks in the Mississippi! Learn something new every day. I have a project in Louisiana coming up, I'll be on the look out. Ease up on the sense of humor. It's all in good fun.

I never made it over to Bright, Falls Creek or Beechworth but the tracks and snow gums at Mt Buller were rad. We rode the IMBA Epic Trail there and all but the middle was worth the long day. The town of Mansfield was cool too.

You'd be far away from the crocs there, mate. (Like asking if there are sharks in the Mississippi River.) But yea, drop bears... seems like they are everywhere!
