ride routes 13th – 19th july

even though the tour de france is probably taking up valuable sleeping time in a lot of our members, there is another very important race going on at the same time.  the women’s giro is also in full swing and some of our members just happened to be over there when our honorary spr member annemiek van vleuten smashed the rest of the competition for the stage win and jumped into the overall lead.  annemiek then went on to win the next stage, an uphill time trial.

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.

spr tour of margs – With EOI’s officially closed, we still may only be able to field 3 teams down from the 6-7 teams 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! Check out the previous post for more info. Ask on the SPR Chicks FB page, or email Race@SPR if you’ve got any queries in the meantime, though.  For any late EOI’s get on it and email race@southperthrouleurs.com.au

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.

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 the ride coordinator off overseas getting selfies with dutch professional riders, it has fallen back to me to put something together for the weekend.  after being sick for the last 2 weeks, i am looking forward to actually getting out and doing some exercise.  probably best you don’t ride behind me though, there could be some snot rockets.
