ride routes 9th – 15th november

so the tour of margs is on this weekend, but last weekend another lot of rouleurs headed south for the tour of gracetown.  the great thing about cycling is that there is usually something for everyone.  don’t like racing, then try fondos. don’t like touring, then try mountain biking.  like to hurt yourself, then time trials are for you.  from young to old, fast to not so fast, cycling gives you the opportunity to meet others and form those long term bonds.

tour of margaret river – good luck to all the teams competing this weekend down at nannup. we have 3 men’s team, a women’s team and a team of volunteers.  3 days, 4 stages, lots of hills, heat, rain, flies and camaraderie.  check out the previous post to see who is on the team.

cycling trip to france – next year long time spr member, christophe is looking at organising a trip to france to ride in the mountains.  it is 12 nights with 2 french speaking guides cruising around such little hills as mount ventoux.  if you are interested, see christophe at the coffee shop after the ride or email him at crosstraining@optusnet.com.au

sunday start locations – as numbers increase over summer, we are looking at how we can manage the groups on a sunday morning.  as such we are implementing a start location system to give us an idea of how big the groups are.  we can then split them before they leave the carpark to ensure that the groups are a safe size on the road.  see the previous blog post about where to meet and the new start time.

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 – juniors, juniors, juniors. the weather is looking good so get the kids out and onto the bikes.  we had 5 with us last week including a first-timer who climbed 3 hills in kings park.

from the ride coordinator – Woah ! 37 degrees maximum for Saturday. Where did that come from ? It’s just a lazy 17 degrees more than last week! I’m sure our ToMR teams are looking forward to that one. As will the rest of the crew as we navigate our eastern suburbs starting with Abernethy Road. Change in weather is a good time to remind everyone of the need to slip on some sunscreen and hydrate well for the conditions.  Iced Latte’s will be popular back in the coffee shop this week. Good luck to all the SPR teams down in Nannup this weekend. May it rain green, black and white on Sunday!

  1. Is it possible to keep the early hills at 5:30 or 6:00 without cancelling the 7:00 hills ride? There are early rides seven days a week, but only one 7:00 ride on Saturday.

    1. the sunday earlybird was cancelled over a year ago due to lack of interest. most sunday’s there were no riders at all. a busy day would have been less than 3. nothing stopping anyone heading out. we just don’t want to advertise anything that we can’t support, or people that read the website think that there is a ride on and no-one turns up,
