ride routes 24th – 30th march

community.  here is an example of what we can build over time.  98 club members for our regular ride.  yes, there are many more away, many more lurking behind the scenes without club kit on, but when we look back at how this club has grown over the past 10 years, it is amazing what we have been able to accomplish.  this is definitely not just the work of one individual.  this is the work of many volunteers giving up their time because they believe in contributing to the work that will build a community.  believing in what we are doing is different to what other clubs are doing.  believing in providing pathways and leadership to help develop skills. believing that it is important to look out for one another.  this isn’t just a club for me, it is a community.

ride leader sponsor – the ride leader sponsor for march is  Nutrition IQ.  The main force behind Nutrition IQ is a deep desire to help individuals achieve their long-term diet and nutrition goals. Whether you’re seeking help with weight loss, sports nutrition, or disease prevention, each client is individually evaluated by a professional Dietitian and provided with a well-researched and comprehensive plan they can follow for the rest of their lives.

2017 annual report – prior to the agm held last weekend, we released our 2017 annual report.  please take the time to have a look so you can see all the good work that was done last year.  there are lots of people in the club that have contributed many hours of effort in providing events and services to the rouleurs community and they deserve to be recognised.

which ride for me – after the changes that the club introduced over the last couple of weeks, we have had another look at our guide for choosing the ride group for you to ride in.  this concentrates primarily on the transitional through to main 3 rides, but still makes some very good points that all out riders should remember.  see the previous post for all the details.

6th annual vice president’s good friday 3 dams ride – if you are looking for a long ride to kick off the extra long easter weekend, then we have the 6th annual vp’s 3 dams ride.  note, this is ridden at a main 1 pace with minimum regroups throughout.  this is due to some of the busier roads that the original 3 dams route took and our need to be clear of them before they get too much traffic.  see the previous post for more information.

city of kalamunda cycling survey – the city council has put together a draft bicycle plan and are requesting feedback from riders who use the area.  there is some good work in there and the city of kalumunda has even identified “training roads” as areas where the more endurance based riders choose to ride.  have a look at the draft plan and click on the link to give feedback. we need to ensure that the results are not just some of the more vocal cyclist hating residents that we have had to deal with.

town of vic park and city of south perth cycling survey – the city of south perth and the town of vic park have pooled resources and are looking at what they need to provide for cyclists.  again, have a look at the draft plan and give some feedback.

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 – the late summer easterlies continue forcing us to stay with the similar rides that we have seen all summer.  variety may be the spice of life, but headwinds home suck big time so it is better to just do the same old routes.
