ride routes 4th – 10th may

Apologies for the brief post this week.  El Prez is away in the USA for the next couple of weeks, where the weather seems much colder than Perth.  Therefore, and after  just completing on indoor trainer FTP session, I realised I’m meant to post the routes.  So, here they are, as I recover and wait for Stage 1 of the Tour de Yorkshire to start.

The weather is not looking too flash for Saturday morning and some groups may need to combine.  Don’t forget to listen to ride leaders and ride to the conditions.  Alternatively, the South Perth Rouleurs Fair Weather Riding Club have a Zwift ride organised.  See the Facebook page for further details

ride leader sponsor –there is no ride leader sponsor for may.  if you want to promote your business to our 400 members and 2500 facebook followers, get in contact with the club.

junior jersey policy – In order to further encourage junior participation the Committee has resolved to offer all junior members a free club jersey!  And in recognition that juniors will keep growing, the policy allows for one jersey per year (as  long as they are a member) until 18 years of age. Please see the previous post for more details.

memberships new changes – if you are a member of another club and want to change to spr then it is simply a matter of calling up  cycling australia memberships and giving them your membership number.  i have requested that an additional fee is not required and most people don’t care what club is written on their card as long as they are in the right club in the system. it should be a zero fee transaction and if they ask for anything, tell them to contact the club.

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 – last week the juniors tried something different and we went to optus stadium to do laps around the outside.  this provided a good safe environment which allowed us to teach them how to form a paceline.  15 sec on the front then peel off and head to the back.  after the first few loops they had it running smoothly.  in the future, we will rotate between kings park and the stadium with this week us heading back to the park for hill climbs.  under 10’s or over 10’s welcome with parents.

from the ride coordinator – With the weather predicted to be changeable over the weekend, if you ride, take extra precautions to ensure the safety of yourselves and those around you. Let’s be careful out there.
