renae’s race 2017

sunday the 19th of feb sees the next running of renae’s race.  this is the premier women’s race in perth and it is in memory of renae baker, a talented perth cyclist.

there will be 4 women’s only grades; open, b, c & d and 1 open men’s support race as well as a women’s “come and try” event.  we are aiming for this race to be self sufficient in 2018 with no men’s event at all.

to achieve this, we need to make sure that each of the grades are well represented.  this is a perfect opportunity for any women in club to have a go at racing.  the circuit is only 1km long and the traffic is managed.  there will be lots of club support down there and people to give you advice if you have never raced before.  day licences are available if you do not have a race licence.

many of the lower grade races are just like a saturday group ride, so i know that you can do it.  we have lots of women in the club that consistently ride all week so we need to support this event.

more info can be found on the event facebook page and race entries can be made via the registration page and the come and try event through the this link.
