still a cyclist

so i read an interesting article during the week on “fat shaming” and was wondering how much this relates to our club.  we aim to be as inclusive as possible and this means that we accept anyone who turns up to ride.  unless there is something about their bike or they way they are dressed that is particularly dangerous, then what does it matter.  things like the “velominati” may have started like a joke, but they have suddenly become a standard for bike snobbery and how we should view other riders.  as far as i can see this is crap, and if you are willing to put in the effort and get off the couch and onto the bike, then you are a cyclist.  the article finished with a quote from former american president teddy roosevelt from way back in 1910:

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.

don’t be a critic, be a supporter.  get out and ride.

ride routes 13th & 14th september

t-shirt 03 logoso, i had the pleasure of riding along the new freeway bike path a couple of times this week.  it was great to see that they actually made it wider and put in retaining walls to stop the dirt edges from reclaiming the path.  i suppose what was more surprising to most non-cyclists, was just how many people use that path on a daily basis.  with the diversion pushing the riders out onto the main mill point road intersection, drivers certainly got to see more cyclists than they would be used to.  as the weather continues to improve, more people will start the commute to work via bike.  it usually means that we will also see an increase in riders attending our club rides.  if you are one of those fair weather riders, it’s time to dust off the bike and come out with us again.

mel – spr ride angel. get your photo with the wings after the saturday ride.

cycle training involves counting.  counting kilometers, counting watts, counting metres climbed, counting calories.  i am trying to get ready for some key races coming up and i am counting everything.  it gets a bit monotonous sometimes and i am being accused of being a bit over the top with weighing food and counting calories.  but cycling encompasses many  different aspects which can range from riding for pure enjoyment to absolute scientific precision.  i am sitting somewhere in between and am perversely enjoying the scientific aspect…especially if i see some results.  pass me the rice cakes.

10641066_10202650961299895_6343361263417554429_na great day of racing for some last weekend.  some good podiums across many grades, but not such a good race for spr in c grade.  there was an accident towards the end that saw greg (pictured) with one broken collar bone and the other shoulder dislocated along with a bunch of scraps and bruises.  jordan managed to walk away but has 16 stitches in his face and a not so good shoulder.  this is the sometime unfortunate outcome of racing and if you are looking at lining up at some races make sure that you are prepared.  this may mean having your contact numbers handy, good medical and bike insurance and even having more than 1 jersey (greg had his cut off by the doctors).  not trying to scare anyone off racing as it doesn’t happen every race, but better to have thought about it beforehand.

10393656_1550322718524726_857309775597416136_nan interesting incident last week for a club member on their way to the saturday morning ride.  they were physically attacked and assaulted while riding on the path.  the incident had been reported and the assailant dealt with but from a club perspective there was a slightly disturbing follow up.  after the incident, the member tried to wave down a fellow spr rider for help, but they refused to stop.  last week i wrote on the blog about helping anyone that is in need because you never know when you may need help.  in this case if someone (especially another spr member in kit) is asking for help, then it really shouldn’t be too much to ask you to stop.  the ride route actually went back past the incident location, so even if you had to stop, you could have jumped on as the groups went by.  bottom line.  look after one another.

1972387_10153037545799908_7432437087624873339_ni was out on a recovery ride by myself the other day and came across a lady on the bike path struggling to adjust her brakes after putting her front wheel on.  i asked her if she needed some help and it was a pretty basic fix to get them connected again.  i also explained to her how a quick release works as she had just used the lever to wind it on tight.  pretty basic stuff, but invaluable to someone that is just starting out riding.  no-one fell out of bed and knew everything about bikes, so we have all been there before.  if you see someone at the start of the ride that has something not quite right, or see someone on the side of the road with a flat, ask them if they need some help.  one day it could be you.

ride routes 26th & 27th july

IMG_3991bthis week is women’s cycling week (20-27th july).  there is a call out to show your support via social media and people are being asked to tweet or facebook themselves with the comment – I support women’s cycling #owntheroad #womenscycling.  there is a lot of disparity in our sport with teams like sky having a budget that could easily fund all women’s teams many times over.  many women in the professional peloton are not actually paid to race, but still do it anyway.  we have lots of women in our club that are discovering racing for the first time and we want to do whatever we can to support them.

ride routes – hopefully the rain will stay away (at least until we finish our ride).  i was asked the other day if we cancel rides in bad weather.  i said that someone usually turns up no matter what the weather.  if this is you, then maybe a combined smaller group is the go.  stay safe.
