ride routes 13th – 19th january

“i would love to train more, but i just don’t have the time”.  there is always more time if you look hard enough.  delete a few hours of useless tv watching and you can squeeze in a quick century.  already commute to work, then how about getting up early and doing extra k’s or go for resistance training as shown above.  not pushing a “new year, new you” thing, but it is good to set your goals for 2018 early, so you can work the rest of your life around your riding.

ride leader sponsor – the ride leader sponsor for january is Valetudo Health.  SPR club member Corrie Fillmore (Johnstone) coaches triathletes and cyclists at Valetudo Health and also provides injury rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, sports dietetics, and exercise physiology services.

Pretty sure they cannot get up off the floor.

spr kit order – the kit order is closing on the 15th jan.  next order won’t close till may, so you may want to get your cold weather clothes in this run so you are not caught short when it turns cold after easter.  check out the previous post for more details on how to order.

xmas award summary – there were a significant amount of nominations for this years club awards.  check out the summary which not only shows the winners of each award, but also all the nominations and why they were nominated.  all of this is on the previous post.

tour de bintan – the tour de bintan is a great 3 day race on the island of bintan in indonesia.  not only is the race well organised and in beautiful tropical surroundings, but it also a qualifier for the UWCT final to be held in italy in september.  toby brown’s strive cycle training, has once again organised a combined travel and training package that includes return airfares, accommodation and transfers, and access to strive coaching services for the event.  there are approximately 5 spots on the trip left to fill, and these now available for SPR members.  if you’d like the opportunity to qualify for the UWCT final, and experience racing in asia get in touch now. dates: 23-25 march. cost: $1666 per person

ride start locations –just a friendly reminder that the bike path under the narrows is a public thoroughfare that needs to be kept open.  please make sure that bikes and pedestrians have access in both directions.  we are getting more and more people on our rides and it is starting to become a problem.  please be considerate and move down rather than stand 3 abreast.

2018 licences renewal – any race licence that you purchase now will be valid until the end of 2018.  recreational licences are a year from the date purchased, but race licences are for a calendar year.  if you are looking at changing clubs and wish to join spr, then now is the time to do it.  a club change before a renewal is free, so get it done now then when you renew you will be a member of spr.  if you want to change clubs, email through your membership number and we can initiate the change.  make sure you are insured while riding, even if you are not racing.

group sizes and ride etiquette – a timely reminder from our training and development officer on just why we split the ride up into certain size groups.  why we need to keep separated on the road and what it means for your safety.  have a read of the previous post, because if you get pulled up for one of these issues don’t expect that “i didn’t know” to be a valid excuse.

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 – 37 deg expected on saturday.  make sure that you are prepared especially if you are looking at doing longer k’s.  the unofficial nightowl perhaps…
