Last Thursday a group of suspiciously fit and enthusiastic women riders gathered together for a clandestine meeting in the backwaters of Leederville.
Many weeks in the planning, this was to be the first meeting of the Roulettes… a subversive breakaway group of riders with associations to the
better known and more reputable South Perth Rouleurs. The pre-requisites for entry to this elite league of ladies were simple …a road bike, a pair of ovaries, ownership of more lycra than the average female and a penchant for speed.
Much secretive discussion, planning and stragetising ensued over the course of the evening…
After several hours the meeting was concluded and proclaimed to be an overwhelming success. Members made their way home…
many for an early night before the next morning’s training while some lingered over coffee and hot chocolate and considered the day off they had planned for the next day (actually that was only me!).
