ride routes 6th – 12th july

sacrifice.  i have talked about it on here before especially in relation to someone helping me to qualify for the masters champs.  however, it can also happen as part of the mundane, day-to-day.  last saturday the fast group was hammering along abernathy road when they came across 2 large lumps.  all was called and there were no accidents like we had on south street previously.  however, realising that there were numerous groups about to thunder down the same stretch of road, pete seizovic decided to sacrifice his own ride and peel off the group to remove the obstacles before the main 1 groups happened upon it.  at work we are often asked whether we would walk past a safety hazard because it is “not our problem”. the fast group successfully negotiated the hazard, but by removing it altogether, pete reduced the risk for the following groups.  safety is one of the cornerstones of the club.  make sure you are looking out for your clubmates.

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.  there are usually different weekly offers on when you buy your entertainment book.

New kit
The new kit…

spr kit collection – if you ordered a kit in the last run it will be ready for collection at the coffee shop after the saturday ride.  if you can’t make it there, collection cna be organised after hours by contacting the kit committee on email or ordering a “post my kit” via our shop.

tour of margs expression of interest – SPR ToMR 2019 Expressions of Interest are closing this Saturday, 6th July at TWO MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT! ToMR this year celebrates it’s 10th birthday. Nice work Brendon, Bec and Co! The Tour this year also sees a return to FOUR stages over three days.  At this point is time, it appears we may only barely be able to field 3 teams in total. Quite a departure from the 6-7 teams from days of yore. Or even just last year.  Most importantly, WE NEED MORE WOMEN!!!! While the ToMR Crew are coming to town for an Info Session in August (as advertised on FB) but we’d really like your EOI now! Ask on the SPR Chicks FB page if you’ve got any queries in the meantime, though.  for more info check out 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 – CANCELLED.  a bit of a discussion with the other parents and we have decided to put the juniors ride on hold over winter.  the last few weeks have been too wet and the prediction is for more rain on saturday.  even if it is not wet, then 2 deg in kings park is not pleasant and we want to make sure that the kids are actually having fun.  we will reassess mid august as to when to start up again.

from the ride coordinator –With Le Tour commencing this weekend, we needed to get in sync with the professionals by putting in some elevation into the Saturday ride. By doing this, I am hoping that all those flat trackers out there can appreciate a little of what is about to begin in France. Didn’t say that you have to like it, just appreciate it. Enjoy !
