ride routes 6th & 7th december

10735897_10153336367544908_519987206_nthere is lots happening for spr leading up to christmas and it all kicks off this saturday with our first ladies fast group ride.  this is just part of the organic growth of the club as most of our rides have developed from a need identified from within.  when we first started (pre-spr) there was just one group on a saturday morning, and now look at it.  even the weekday rides started with a thursday morning ride to practice how to do a cyclo-sportif.  it is encouraging to see such growth continuing especially when we think that we may be at the limit of the clubs development.

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.

Allused Logo (2)ride leaders sponsorship – this months ride leaders are proudlysponsored by AllusedCommercial Equipment.   please see the previous post detailing what they provide and we thank them for encouraging our members to step up as ride leaders.  ride leaders will receive a $10 Dome voucher to be used after the saturday ride.  if you have a business that you want to promote to our members, check out the previous post to both promote your business and help out the club.

thursday night crit training – this thursday we continue our night time crit training in canning vale.  as long as it is not raining, check out the previous post and head on down.

smashfest criterium series – the final race in the smashfest series will be held this sunday at tech park.  it has been a successful series so far with an increase in both the junior an ladies ranks. if you want to have a go at racing, then this is the place to start.  nice easy course and lots of spr support.  just rock up, pay your money and race.  men’s and women’s races will be separate and juniors can race in ‘e’ grade.

smashfest criterium volunteers – we will only need a few volunteers this year as we are paying for traffic management and for st john.  still a handful will be needed to help setup and assist in the rego/drink desk.  racing for juniors starts at 7am so if we can have a couple of people down there at 6:30 it would be great.

spr end of year awards – we are calling for nominations in  particular categories.  have a look at the previous post and let us know who you think is deserving this year.

single speed summer scorcher – our fixie ride is back again this time with a summer ride (i think the last one was a bit wet).  get your bikes ready for this saturday and see the previous post for more info.

ladies fast ride – this saturday also sees our first ladies fast ride.  this ride is open to any ladies that want to have a go at good hard riding without the blokes there to mess it up and get the group lost.  this group will head off after the fast group and before the main group.  the aim is to try to encourage more girls to take that step into more competitive riding.  it is intended that this ride will be a monthly occurrence. we will see how this saturday goes and maybe it will grows to be a weekly ride.  see previous post for a few more details.

new 2015 spr cycle kit – just released.  new design and new manufacturer.  there is an opportunity to try the sizing kit before you order (larger men’s sizes should be available this weekend).  please be aware that we need to return this sizing kit to the manufacturer, so any damaged goods will need to be paid for by the club.  see the previous post for more details.

out of lycra event – the next out of lycra event is on thursday the 18th december at empire bar in rivervale.  this is an opportunity to catch-up with other club members, but in a setting where you don’t have to try to hold their wheel.  see the previous post for more details.

yanchep beach criterium – the week after smashfest finishes, if you are still up for some racing, head north and check out the yanchep beach criterium that northern beaches are running.  the northern beaches club does a lot at the smashfest criteriums to ensure that the junior races are run well, so we really need to return the favour and support their race.  more details on the previous post or register here.

ride routes – lots of choices for rides this weekend and it looks like the weather will be ideal for bike riding.
