ride routes 2nd & 3rd mo-vember

where would you rather be
where would you rather be

our club prides itself on a number of things and one of them is the high level of organisation.  part of that is providing the main development groups (novice thru to main 2) have leaders to look after them.  this is to ensure that the group maintains a high level of safety from risks both internal (ride skills) and external (ride conditions).  ride leaders often sacrifice their own ride to ensure that the club riders develop their skills properly as they get fitter.  to help the club continue its skill development, show your appreciation for the ride leaders by offering to buy them a coffee at DOME after the ride.  its the little things that make some of the sacrifices worthwhile.

spr kit order – the current kit order closes at midnight tomorrow (1st november).  get your order in now for a near to christmas delivery.

state senior graded road championships – thanks to those that have volunteered their time for this event.  as per the previous post, we are co-hosting this event this weekend and people that have already put their names down have been assigned tasks on that post.  we are still short a lead car and a support car, so if you can help out let us know.  drivers will be briefed before the event to ensure that they know what to do.  at the moment we are looking at a 8am start, so volunteers will need to be there for a 7am setup time.  the location is Thichet rd in wanneroo.  riders will need to park on Benmunni rd and walk the 100m to the east to the registration area on Thichet rd.

tour of margaret river – next weekend 6 spr teams of 6 riders plus a DOME team (and other spr riders in a few other teams) will compete in the tour of margaret river.  a three day 4 stage event around the scenic surrounds of margaret river.  good luck to all involved and well done on such a good turn out.

ride leaders – it is in the clubs best interest to develop new riders so that they ride in a safe manner.  put your name down here to ensure the club grows to its potential.

spr watertower challenge – it’s on again and we already have a couple of teams registered.  go to the event page for more info.  download the flyer and email it to all your cycling friends.  this is not just for spr members but open to the general public.

skills cycling course – if you are new to cycling and want to get better at group riding skills, then cathi dixon will be running another 3 week session of cycle skills.  riding at a fast pace over longer distances takes more than just fitness.  developing your bike skills, especially group riding skills is very important.  see the previous post for more details.

ride routes – with 48 spr members entered in the state champs this weekend (out of a field of 156) it may be a little light on for the sunday ride.  make sure you know the ride route and be sure to speak up if you think that the group is taking the wrong turn.  be proactive as it can save a lot of time later.

  1. The kit orders will remain open over the weekend. If you get your order in by midnight Sunday night it will be included in the pre Christmas / pre tour down under delivery.

  2. As lots of folk are probably aware, Dave J had a nasty fall this morning as was taken to hospital with fairly serious facial injuries… as a few folk have been in touch with me asking how he is, I thought I’d pop a quick update on the blog…

    Good news is that he’s at home after spending the day getting patched up. Somewhat miraculously he doesn’t seem to have broken or torn anything, but he did require some reconstructive work on his ear, and as he said “he’s clearly beaten Anna in the visible injury competition”…

    Otherwise, a HUGE thank you to all the folk that helped out… I’m sure he’s grateful for the support he recieved.


  3. Good news as well is that his bike doesn’t seem to have a scratch on it (although this might be bad news for you Tom if you were hoping to sell him another Aura).
    Unfortunately I can’t say the same for his Oakleys and Helmet which have seem bettter days!
