ride routes 8th & 9th november

bike path = parking lot
bike path = parking lot

early ride routes this week as i am racing tomorrow in margs.  another cyclist was hit in perth today in what was believed to be another possible texting incident.  the lady in her 50″s is in a critical condition but was not carrying any identification on her.  after brendan”s accident last year, there was a lot of discussion around carrying some form of ID on you while you are riding.  a lot of people rely on their phone, but if it is locked and you are unconscious, it is not going to help.  even if people know your first name, there is a good chance they don”t know your last or who to call in the case of an emergency.  i carry an old licence and some business cards on me, but others have purchased the rideid bands.  the photo above was taken on sunday on the bike path between canning bridge and mt henry. it seems that we are not safe even on the bike path.

ride leaders – support the club and help us become ambassadors for the sport in the public eye. put your name down as ride leader to ensure that the group ride is safe and organised. sign up here.

thursday night crit training – this thursday we start off a night time crit training in canning vale.  as long as it is not raining check out the previous post and head on down there.

smashfest criterium series – the crits start mid november and this years smashfest will be 4 weekends in a row rather than spread across summer.  there is a teams options for men’s a & b grade, so if you want to be part of an spr team there is more info here.  we will only need a few volunteers this year online casino as we are paying for traffic management and for st john.  still a handful for rego/drinks/camera would be great.  also, if someone would like to learn how to use the new timing system, it would be great to have that skill in our club.

ride routes – with many regulars away this weekend for the tour or margs, we will really need some people to step up and lead the groups.  mark and dave will be kicking things off on saturday morning, so if they are asking for help, please volunteer your time.
