so much going on this week (agm) and next week (state champs), and the week after (tour of margs) and the week after that (watertower challenge) etc, etc.  not getting much of a chance to scratch myself.  even the ride routes are late today after an evening meeting with the department of sport and recreation.  too busy to even complain about anything today.

ride leaders – currently there are 0 ride leader signed up for this weekend and it seems to be the same names every week.  the club needs you to step up.  put your name down here.

cycling wa agm – as members of the association, you would have received an invitation to attend the agm this weekend.  there is a lot going on within the politics of cycling and if you want to see what goes on, or have a question to ask the current board, then now is your opportunity.

state senior graded road championships – as per the previous post, we are co-hosting this event next weekend and need volunteers to make it successful.  let us know if you are available to help out during the day, setting up, line judging, refreshment selling, lead/support car driving.

pink ribbon day – this coming monday is pink ribbon day which is to raise awareness of breast cancer.  if you are on the monday training ride i encourage you to don some form of pink clothing (luke already has the socks covered), but don’t forget to make a donation if you see any of the volunteers roaming around.

boot camp – get your beach body back before the weather gets hot.  free boot camp on tuesdays at 6am at the ryrie ave reserve playground in como.  run available beforehand if you are interested.

spr watertower challenge – it’s on again and we already have a couple of teams registered.  go to the event page for more info.  download the flyer and email it to all your cycling friends.  this is not just for spr members but open to the general public.

ride routes – as a final hit out before the tour of margaret river, the all powerful race committee has requested that the margs teams be set off last again this week to see how well they work together.  the route this week, has some nice long sections that groups can work on their rolling through skills.

  1. Tut tut Pete – and you call yourself a “South Perth” cyclist?
    Yes we do have squirrels in oz – just nearby in South Perth in fact. Have you never ridden down Labouchere Road past the Zoo at sunset?
    The little devils will run out from the kerb and try to chew the sidewalls off your tyres.
    Funny though, they will only nibble Conti’s made with the Chilli compound and wont touch a Vittoria or Schwalbe ….

  2. actually bill, i do know that there are squirrels around the zoo. we found that out on a visit about 10 years ago before we lived here. we saw them running around at the zoo and then saw a stuffed one in the museum. it said something about them being escaped zoo inmates. haven’t seen them running around recently. maybe all the escaped snakes got them.
