ride routes 21st & 22nd april

not much happening this week.  work is work.  home is home.  riding is going well.  i didn’t win lotto though, so i guess i will just have to do it all again next week.

spr club kit – final orders will be taken this weekend.  the jersey sizing kit will be available at the DOME coffee shop after the ride to help you choose the correct fit.  more info here

anzac day – there will be some earlybird rides, public holiday rides and a dawn service ride.  i will post a separate blog about what will happen on wednesday.

dams ride – congratulations to all those from spr that participated (it wasn’t a race…apparently).  a great effort especially by some people that i can remember were in the transitional group not so long ago.

road races – there are a number of road races coming up soon.  if you want to give road racing a go, we generally have a bunch of other members at these events so you won’t feel like you are on your own.  especially if you order some kit so you look like you are part of the club.  if you want to ask questions about any of the races, or just races in general, post a question to the forum and people will be more than happy to answer you.  this also applies to mountain bike races.

club agm & breakfast – i would just like to again thank toby and leo at the DOME for catering for the club breakfast.  it certainly makes it a lot easier than holding it at my place.  i would also like the thank all those that volunteered to be on the club committee for this year.  i will post the minutes on the blog soon so those that were absent can see what was discussed.

ride/race reports – feel free if you want to write up your experiences on the bike.  people like to hear about others perspective of the rides and it is a good way for new people to see what goes on during the rides.  race reports are also a good way to get people involved with racing as a lot of people just need a little prompt to get them to have a go.  let me know if you want to post something and i can give you authorship rights.

ride routes – the saturday main ride is one that we don’t do very often.  the majority of the course is very familiar, but where we usually take the bus lane to turn onto albany hwy, we will cross over and head up towards welshpool road.  make sure you know the ride routes.

  1. Hi Pete,

    Thanks for scheduling a nice flat ride on Saturday for the main groups. I was one of the many that completed the 3 Dams ride with my ride buddy Brett from SPR. What an experience!!!!!! After 6 hours of ride time we finally made it back to the finish and I am not sure about Brett however I am venturing out for a ride for the first time on Saturday.

    I now know the true meaning of “shut up legs”. Oh the hill into and out of Canning Dam…… Hahahahahaha!

    Thanks from Owen.

  2. Hi Pete, would you be able to open a post for 3/5 dams challenge topic. I’m sure few SPR riders will be happy to share their experiences

  3. Good ride in the hills this morning, but can I make it even better and safer by changing the way we ride from kalamunda. Usual ride is along Canning Road and turn onto Lesmurdie Road. This road is super busy and can be dangerous to us as we have cars pulling out of side roads as we are riding super quick down this hill. Instead can we ride a safer way , continue another 500 metres along Canning Road until we get to Pomeroy Road, ride this road until we get to Welshpool Road. We can then ride like the wind down this hill. I rode Pomeroy Road with another spr rider today instead of Lesmurdie and we didnt even see one car along this road. It is also hot mix….smooth…… A change for the better
    Cheers Cathi
