ride routes 21st – 27th september

yes it may have been cold, but it hasn’t been that cold.  while i have missed the cold change that perth has endured this week by strategically being in sunny queensland, further south some members have been climbing mountains in search of snow.  not really something that we see a lot of in perth, but then again we don’t really see any mountains either.

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.

ride leader program – We are now seeking expressions of interest from SPR members who regularly ride with the Main 2, 3 & 4 as well as Transition groups. We currently have a good number of riders from the Main 1 cohort; we really need to boost our numbers further down the line.  please see the previous post for more info.

weekend racing – here is what is on offer this weekend if you want to pin a number on.

  • The Element Round 3 – Lancelin – 22nd September 2019 – Cost $tba – entries close 17th Sep 19 – See details here

the beverley volunteers – as we have for the last few years, we are running the beverley race as part of the heroic weekend.  curently we have 15 voluteers signed up but we need closer to 28.  outstanding positions are Rego Desk; Marshaling; Lead Cars x4; SAG Wagon x1.  if you can help out, please email race@southperthrouleurs.com.au to sign up.

the beverley race – if you aren’t going to volunteer, then sign up for the race.  for those not familiar with how a handicap race is run, the strongest riders start last (scratch) with everyone else getting a increasing better time advantage.  this means that (if the handicappers get it right), everyone has the same chance of winning the event.  to enter go to the following link as the entryboss page has just been launched.  be heroic.

ToMR Breakaway 2019 – There’s more to ToMR than just racing ToMR!!! ToMR are hosting their “Breakaway” rides – get to ride the full race courses ahead of the race in a fully supported group.
Last year, that group was headed up by none other than Jens Voigt – who else would you get to lead a Breakaway if Thomas De Gendt isn’t available? If there is suitable demand from non-racing SPR members, we can look towards packaging an accommodation bundle to travel with the SPR ToMR-ers. If you like bikes and riding it is one of the best weekends away all year.  For more info on the Breakaway rides, check out the ToMR event websiteEmail if you are interested or chat to Steve or Greg after Saturday Main rides at Dome.

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 but coming back soon.  hopefully we will all be back on deck after the school holidays.  there may be a few test rides over the next few weeks, but official kick off will not be that far away.

from the ride coordinator – its heating up next week but should be pleasant enough over the weekend to get a few good rides in.  we may be a little short of ride leaders for the fast 2 ride, so please listen to the more experienced riders and make sure that everyone knows the ride route to avoid confusion….and crashes.
