ride routes 7th – 13th october

it’s that time of year again.  just after you have gotten used to looking out for potholes, cars, pedestrians and stray dogs, you now have to look out for the dreaded magpie.  good ole collingwood forever.  well at least for spring anyway.  there is one near my place and he and i have “connected” on many an occasion.  not really a spiritual connection, more of a claw on helmet type connection.  a postie from canberra recently said that he “combats” the magpies on his route by feeding them muesli bars.  i wonder what a caffeinated gel would do.  probably not the best for a bird.  next thing you know he would be growing a man-bun, a beard and and ordering a soy, decaf, double-shot latte, topped up, extra hot.

ride leader sponsor – the ride leader sponsor for october is Mount Hawthorn Family Practice.   a fully accredited and equipped, modern general practice whose friendly staff look forward to welcoming you. the experienced team of doctors and staff can assist you with your general health needs and offer a range of general practice services.  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.

 

tomr ttt training – this saturday the tomr teams will do another training ride in preparation for the 2 stages of team time trials.  meet at coode st and find your team-mates before taking an warm up roll to elizabeth quay.  from there you will ride to christchurch grammar and return working on your communication and skills.   recover and repeat.

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 – a constant re-forecast everyday this week has seen the risk of rain for saturday morning being seriously reduced.  rob’s early push for a zwift ride may now be a lonely solo as it looks to be good enough for outdoor riding.
