ride routes 28th & 29th april

easter is over and there seemed to be lots of kms ridden, possibly to get rid of some chocolate indulgence.  the year is flying by and soon we will get a few “unpleasant days” to contend with.  we are lucky with our weather and having 30 degree days in april makes for an extended period of good riding.  this is especially apparent when the east coast is getting battered by driving rain and gale force winds.  however, the rain and cold mornings will soon be upon us.  i have a saying, though – “don”t look at the weather report to see if you are riding, look at the weather report to see what you are going the wear while riding.”  see you out there.

peter clark classic – there are a few riders that will be racing this weekend in the northern districts classic.  good luck to those competing and julian has volunteered to take the tent up so you will have a focal point in which to meet.

the focus group – a month or so ago a bunch of us met online casino with a group of disabled kids that wanted to have a go at cycling.  we rode from the coode st carpark, along the path towards the causeway and back again.  there were a number of kids (with their parents) and a number of spr riders to chaperone the group.  we would like to make this a regular occurrence on a monthly basis.  our next ride with the kids is on the 5th of may and starts at 9:30am.  this gives you all time to do your earlybird plus main ride, have a coffee and still be able to volunteer a bit of time to the cause.  i will put another post up closer to the ride, but give it some thought as we would appreciate as much help as we can get.  the kids really enjoyed it and the parents were rapt that so many of our riders gave up our time to spend time with their kids.

ride routes – they are predicting rain on saturday so the groups may end up being combined if numbers are low.  lets see who is a fair weather rider.  last sunday i was reminded during the ride about the chookenberg.  well reminded was actually a question when someone was hoping we weren”t doing the chook.  this week, we are doing the chook and the goose.

  1. Hey Pete, I cant make the Focus Group session this time as it’s Busselton, but i will definitely help out at the next.

    I cant wait to get out riding with the group again, i’ve felt so anti-social.

  2. Flippin’ Holmes?? Followed by a Chook and a Goose? I will turn up with a hammer tomorrow to beat that really nasty evil streak out of you, el presso. Glad to see a tiny flicker of humanity prevails and you have at least selected quite a nice short hills route ;0)

  3. so, anyway. i have been sick this week and i still don’t know if i will be riding. that may have been the reason why we are doing holmes then the chook & goose. cue evil laugh. mwhawhawhaaa

  4. devastated to have missed my liddle hills. There was a waterfall goin’ on outside our house – impossible to get through. Wish I hadn’t bothered riding later tho’ – ended up snapping my chain at the furthest point from home and waiting for Jonny to pedal back and pick me up in the car!! SERIOUSLY VERY OVER these mechanicals ;0(
