tomr 2018 –
We are a few weeks away and the our good mates at tomr event mgmt central are starting to release all the info. excited much? we have a team briefing/meeting organised for monday 29th october at dome westralia plaza at 18:30. keep an eye on your emails for more updates from hanno and mo.

the beverley – the aftermath.  i don’t think many people truly understand what goes into organising and running an event like the beverley.  if you raced the other week and thought that it was well run, please give greg some positive feedback when you see him next.  an event like beverley would not happen without the hours of effort and stress that he put into it.  check out his musings here.

and from said race director – A repeat of thanks to the Beverley Vollies and SPR racers that attended. Please complete the survey by following the Survey Monkey link sent through by email.

entertainment books – we will again be selling entertainment books this year through the club.  the digital version means you don’t have to carry around a bulky book anymore. check out the links on the previous post to find out more.

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.

spr juniors – over the last month we have had a 400% increase in our juniors.  that means we went from just one of my kids to both my kids and both the carson kids as well.  if you do have a +10ish year old that wants to come out with us (with you), then we leave the same time as the main group on saturday.  easy ride along the bike path to kings park, then a few circuits around the internal quiet roads.  yes there are hills, but that means there are descents too.

from the ride coordinator – (adapted from something I wrote motorcycling around Scotland 4 yrs ago).
Cyclist prayer
To the gods of carbon, rubber and steel,
But most importantly of all, the god of two wheels.
We don’t need a church, of timber and stones,
All that we ask, is we break not our bones.
We’re not exclusive, if you’ve the will and the skills,
Our temple is a road, with bends, curves and hills.
We don’t ask the faithful to bow way down low,
Just get down in the drops, and go, go, go.
