ride routes 21st & 22nd february

10959554_722247487894542_3125038920721827973_nas the club has grown, things naturally change.  some for the better, some may need adjusting.  the weekday rides have grown in size, expanded in number and changed from what their original intent was.  back when there was only a tuesday and thursday ride, the thursday ride was an opportunity for those doing the cyclo-sportifs to practice rolling through and riding hard together.  this has progressed to be the fast group which is now a “hold on for dear life” fast ride.  the intent of the tuesday ride was to limit the speed by implementing the “small chain ring” policy.  this stopped people from smashing it up too much and got people to develop their leg speed.  it is important that this ride does not change too much as there are people that rely on the slower speed so that they can participate in a group ride.  we recently posted a “rules of engagement” for the weekday rides.  it is important for people to understand what is expected of them when on our club training rides.  it is up to everyone on those rides to enforce the rules and not just leave it up to any ride leaders.  being inclusive sometimes means not going flat out.

ride leaders – support the club and help us become ambassadors for the sport in the public eye. put your name down as ride leader to ensure that the group ride is safe and organised. sign up here.

New Town Toyota FEELING Logo Regular CMYK with emblemride leaders sponsorship – this months ride leaders are proudly sponsored by New Town Toyota.   please see the previous post detailing what they provide and we thank them for encouraging our members to step up as ride leaders.  ride leaders will receive a $10 Dome voucher to be used after the saturday ride.  if you have a business that you want to promote to our members, check out the previous post to both promote your business and help out the club.

pemberton classic – more racing at the end of the month with the pemberton classic.  consisting of a crit and a road race, there is always a decent contingent heading down south for this race.  unfortunately the fires down there have cancelled the mountain bike race, but the road race is still on.  check the previous post for more details.

spr club champion – if you are racing this year, check out the spr club champion points system.  there are two categories, those who race in spr kit and a separate one for those that  race in a team kit (for both men and women).  check out the previous post for more details.

giro d’perth – now in its 3rd year the giro d’perth will take you to new places, share new secrets  and be the best fun on a bike all autumn.  south perth supports this event and helps run it, so if you are looking for something different in march have a look at this event.  it is a great opportunity to get some family members involved in cycling without making them do a group ride.  check out the website for more details.

uwct training ride – this will now be a regular fixture on our sunday mornings until the event at the end of march.  starting at 6am to avoid the traffic, this is a ride for those intending to do the uwct qualifier.  this is a ride for experienced hills riders, the pace is fast and the hills are long.  if you are thinking of doing the uwct event, but are not at the sunday long hills ride pace yet, i would recommend that you start with the sunday short hills ride first.  more info can be found on the previous post.

ride routes – no giants to negotiate this week, just some awesome weather for riding.  get on it.
