ride routes 15th – 21st june

how was your riding this week???  i have spent the entire week in brisvegas and the weather has been perfect for winter.  minimums of 13 and max of 25 pretty much what perth had the week before winter kicked in.  unfortunately i don’t have access to a bike over here, and running when it is 90% humidity at 7am isn’t always pleasant. however, it should help with cyclocross training. so with no bike to ride, i wore a bike instead and it kind of reflects how i feel on the bike at the moment.

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 club championships – with only 100 members expressing interest in a club champs, we have decided to not run it this year.  hiring the venue and providing a safe environment with st john on site means that we would be looking at about a $5000 loss. i still think that the idea has merit and so the committee will investigate it further in the future.

tour of margs expression of interest – well it is on again and spr will be sending teams to compete in the biggest team cycling event in wa.  the tour of margaret is a multi-stage teams based race centred around the down south town of nannup.  there so many reasons why this is such a cool race to be part of and there are lots of links within the previous post.  if you want to be part of it, make sure you contact the club via the email address in the previous post.

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 –Like many of us, this time last week, I was really happy to see some precipitation in the weather forecast. “Good for the farmers” I thought. I was even looking forward to a little less intensity on the bike for the weekend, having done lots of KMs across May. Well they say a week is a long time in politics, it’s also a long time if your not part of the FWRC (for those who don’t don’t that is the girls and boys who don’t mind the trainer aka fair weather riding club) so I’m now positively itching to get back out there. And I’m not alone. Kudos to those few hardy souls who did the main ride last week, I’m hoping to join you this week. Showers or Shine !

One thought on “ride routes 15th – 21st june”

  1. Remember Mercantile Lane is blocked and cannot be used for access to Dome Westralia Square (due to a bridge collapse) – so rides finishing at Dome need to go up Mill Street from Mounts Bay Road (eg. Saturday morning 7am group rides).
