ride routes 30 sept – 6th oct

it’s school holidays.  time to get the kids out on the bike.  back when i was a boy, we spend all day on the bike and were free to ride all around the neighborhood.  yes, the world has changed somewhat and we aren’t as trusting with our precious ones anymore.  however, this seems to be reflected in just how many kids are actually riding their bike nowadays.  i was a bit disappointed the other day at school assembly that in the group of grades 1-6 only a small handful rode to school.  i am assuming that they are the ones that live really close to the school too.  kids love the freedom and adventure that comes from riding a bike, so lets encourage that and make the effort this holidays to get them rolling.

ride leader sponsor – the ride leader sponsor for september is My Petite Sweets.  they specialise in cakes, cookies and deserts for all occasions.  please see the previous post for more details.

spr tomr teams –  we have a couple of vacancies for the tomr. level of racing doesn’t really matter as we can slot you in anywhere. please email race@southperthrouleurs.com.au if you are interested.

the beverley – coming up on 14-15 october is spr’s hosted “the beverley road race”.  in only it’s second year and as part of The element series we are running this awesome event again in the charming wheatbelt town of beverley. the beverley road race is a 116km handicap format race departing beverley township through rolling green rural fields, into national park bush land for the turnaround and predominantly downhill run home for the finish. entries and event page are here.  as a part of the beverley heroic weekend, there is our road race on saturday, a retro bike show through the afternoon, cyclocross racing on saturday evening and the beverley heroic on sunday. there is pub accommodation, a caravan park and an event village in town for the weekend. Full details for the weekend are on the website. make a whole cycling weekend of it!

entertainment books – we are still selling the entertainment book/app as a fund raiser for the club.  packed full of offers, it will not take you long to redeem back what you paid.  check out the previous post for more details and links to registration.

thursday training ride – we implemented a new system of splitting the thursday group ride to keep the size manageable.    we think that we have come up with a good way of splitting the groups, but we need you to be honest about your own abilities.  have a look at the strava segment for the ride so you know where you sit.  there is nothing to stop you stepping up to challenge yourself, but this will at least provide a guide as to how much more challenging it will be.

saturday start locations – we have revamped the group start locations on saturday morning.  please have a look at the map so you know where your group will congregate.  this makes it easier for ride leaders to give you a briefing before the ride starts.  see the previous post for more details.

ride routes – there is a break in the weather this weekend, so make up for the spring soaking we copped today and get out on the bike.
