ride routes 8th – 14th june

last week on the thursday ride the group i was in had to wait for a train in freo.  over the past 10 years i don’t think that i could count on one hand how many times i have had to stop at that rail crossing.  a few years ago during the paris-roubaix a group of riders when under a train crossing while the lights were flashing and went on to finish the race in the top few positions.  in the end, they were all disqualified for not obeying the traffic rules. train crossings, red lights, roundabouts, there are all rules in place around these traffic interactions and it is important that we all obey those rules.  please help enforce the correct behaviours by having a quiet word to anyone that isn’t doing the right thing.  this is not something that should be left to the ride leaders or committee.  best case is that they give the club a bad name, worst case is we have to scrape them off the road.

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

entertainment book – once again we are selling the entertainment book as a fundraiser for the club.  available as a digital version, you can carry it anywhere on your phone to make sure that you never miss out on those discounts.  if you do want a physical book, these are still available but you must select a postage option.  click here to order your new book.

spr fair weather riders club (fwrc) – as there is a chance of rain this saturday, for those riders that are made of sugar and are at risk of dissolving, there will be a ride set up on zwift.  a 50km fairly flat ride leaving at 7am on saturday may be an option for those that need to train but have recently cleaned their bikes.

spr club championships – the final votes are in so now the committee will determine whether it is worth setting up a club championship race.  please stay tuned for for info.

spr national kit – You should know by now if you have qualified for the UCI Masters’ World Champs in Poland. Good luck to those who are making the trip! If you need SPR National Kit please order it now through the club shopso that there is time to get it manufactured.  Orders will close on June 10th, so be quick.

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 – before the weather gets too cold, get your kids out for some laps of kings park or optus stadium.  juniors will continue to run over winter so if you have kids that are keen, then we will still be there.

from the ride coordinator –Well we were boasting last week of the great weather we were having and lots of people got the extra kms in. But the weather gods haven’t smiled on us this week. Hopefully we will get the Saturday main ride in, between fronts.

One thought on “ride routes 8th – 14th june”

  1. In the past week alone I have had to deal with the outcomes of two people struck by trains in suburban Perth – the trauma caused to everyone involved, including witnesses was significant. Please don’t risk it.
    And yes, I’m soft and made of sugar – my ZWIFT account may get a workout on Saturday.
