  • Welcome back. With the state government lifting restrictions on gathering sizes and allowing contact sports training, the new SPR Committee met on Tuesday to discuss how we “reopen” the club. Limits around group […]

  • So the voting for our AGM closed last night and we had over 100 members vote on who they would like to represent them. Unlike our usual “hands-up” in the cafe after the ride, this time we had a proper online […]

  • As previously mentioned, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant a number of changes to the way that we need to operate. Although restrictions in our state are beginning to lift, group riding to the scale that our club […]

  • one of the side effects of the coronavirus lockdown is that we missed our AGM this year. the date was set and we had already called for nominations, but the ban on gatherings and then the closure of the […]

  • it has been a couple of weeks since we shut down the spr rides and i thought that it was a good time to check in to see where we are up to. the rules have been constantly changing but i think that we are all well […]

  • The last week and a half has been quite stressful for the SPR committee.  Every day there has been a discussion on what the clubs response will be to the Covid-19 pandemic. An important outcome of this discussion […]

    • Well done to Pete and SPR Committee for looking out for the health of our members and wider community.

  • where to start. there is so much information, advice and opinion floating around at the moment that it is worth stopping and taking stock of our current situation. over the weekend the committee had a lengthy […]

  • UPDATE: as per the advice from Westcycle on the 17th March, we are now at level 3. This means rides are still on, but it is recommended that there is no physical social contact before or after the ride. […]

  • in light of the rapidly changing environment that we are finding ourselves in with the COVID-19 pandemic, the club would like to set some standards for our group rides to keep everyone safe.

    if you have […]

    • Peter,
      another thing for reflection for the committee is that in the unlikely event of a serious outbreak such as other countries are experiencing, social riding can be still a risk for the health care system. Italy is experiencing a shortage of intense care spots and life support facilities at the hospital, therefore a potential bike incident that would result in a serious outcome would add additional pressure to the heath care system.
      Thanks for everything you are doing.
      Regards

  • remember when you just started cycling and a river loop was a big achievement. well for some it still is as many people struggle just to get off the couch. however, if you take a standard perth river loop, […]

  • who is it that influenced you to ride a bike? was it a family member that you always saw riding when you were growing up, or did you start riding later in life and noticed some friends or work mates spending […]

  • so, lets talk about the weather.  rain, humidity, wind.  all the things that cyclists don’t like.  this morning we were also dodging the odd thunderstorm but didn’t manage to miss the rain.  apart from the ste […]

  • the other day #2 son had to write a piece on people he admired.  he listed kobe bryant, some random youtube person that i don’t know and….me. as an 11 year old, this is not unusual, but his reasoning was a […]

  • although the ride leader sponsor program is no longer active, there are still aspects of the overall ride leader program that require funding (jerseys, theory workshops, etc). as such, we will still be accepting […]

  • new year, new you. as previously announced, Mayeur will be the kit supplier of the south perth rouleurs from 2020 onwards. the kit committee has been working closely with the design team at Mayeur to come up w […]

    • Looks great.

    • congrats to come to a decision!
      would be also interested to see how the SPR National (UCI)Aussie kit will look like? and when it is available to order?
      Are there socks, gloves, caps also available?

    • Wow – Love it

    • Looks awesome, looking forward to owning some of this kit.

    • I like the logo in white on the middle pocket. I think that should stay. I guess you have to have the brand on there. Can that be on either the left or right pocket not middle.

      Didn’t know we had a new domain name. Is there plans to drop the rouleurs from the club name? Or is that to do with space. That new domain is shorter and easier to remember than the current domain.

      I think white text on the back would be easier to see rather than green on green.

    • It’s very green. I would like to see a little more white on the jersey – to retain some continuity with our well recognised previous kit and to keep our club uniform as visible as possible at all times (given that most of our midweek training rides begin at 5:30am i.e. in the dark for most of the year).

    • Are we showing SPR or Mayer? In the picture the sleeves look long.

  • leadership. over a year ago, i lost the love for cycling. i was sick of training and sick of trying. at the time i thought that i just needed to ride for fun and physically that is all i did.  mentally and […]

    • Saw one of our people dump a used gel package on the road today. We get enough bad press as it is so qualifying as litter bugs is not on. Maybe we all need to be reminded not to drop gas cannisters, tubes, gel packages or any other cycling gear while on a club ride (or any ride). Tks

  • so, as many of you may have seen, the spr kit committee has been tasked with reviewing our current kit, for both supplier and design. we have had the current design for around 5 years now and it has served us well […]

  • thursday morning, 5:30am, 22 deg, light winds.  perfect riding conditions.  the picture attached was from this weeks thursday training ride.  it may not look like it, but if you do a count, there are over 80 pe […]

  • so january is pretty much over, the tdu has finished and half the kids are back at school already. it won’t be long now until we have to put lights back on the bike as we head into the cooler months. so before the […]
