ride routes 6th & 7th july

winner of stage 1...the greenedge bus
winner of stage 1…the greenedge bus

how unpredictable has the tour been this year.  no-one picked the stage winner for the first three stages and i can’t say that any of them were obvious.  the greenedge boys certainly redeemed themselves after the debacle of stage 1 when the bus went for line honours.  seeing gerrans out sprint sagan was unreal and watching the guys take out the team time trial was amazing.  my body is slowly getting used to staying up till 11:30pm to watch the stage finish then getting up at 5:00am to go riding.  it is not the most productive work day but it just doesn’t feel right to watch a tour de france replay.  it is, however, a good time of year to not be living on the east coast and having to stay up till 2am.  a couple more stages left before the gc boys come out to play in the mountains.  looking forward to that.

ride leaders – we need ride leaders for this saturday’s ride.  we will be releasing a ride leaders guide soon, but in the meantime a few points are as follows – pick a group below where you usually ride.  split the group before you leave the carpark.  for the riders in the group, the ride leader has volunteered their time, please be respectful and listen to instructions.  if you can do better then feel free to sign up.  see the previous post for more details or sign up here.  please help out the club and volunteer your time.  thanks to those that have already put their name down.

rapha women’s ride – cathi dixon is organising a ride for the rapha women’s 100.  details as follows.

Join me on the 7th July to ride 100km as part of the Rapha Women’s 100.  The Rapha Women’s 100 is a global event getting thousands of women around the world to ride 100km on the 7th July wherever they are.

On the 7th of the 7th at 7am we will be meeting at Dôme Westralia Plaza Shop 5, Westralia Plaza 167 St Georges Terrace, Perth. World champion track cyclist Sarah Kent will be rolling with us. This is not a race it is a group ride. A chicks group ride. So come along bring your female cycling friends.  We will be riding a river loop x 2, so if 100km is to far you can peel off at 50km.
Come on pedal pedal pedal

tour de france dinner – a chance to do some french stuff that doesn’t involve the bicycle.  more info here.

focus kids ride – cold.  it is going to be cold. kids ride is on this weekend at 9:30am and we will have people there to ride with you, but we fully understand if it is too cold for your kids.

ride routes – yes, it will be cold for the ride, but at least it will be dry.  all you have to do is wear more clothes.  i look forward to freezing with you.
