Healthy turnout to SPR Women’s Health Afternoon Tea

Well today’s weather was wet and wild but it didn’t stop our women coming along to this event aimed at supporting our women with health issues that can impact their performance and enjoyment of cycling.

Dr Rachel McCormick and PhD Scholar Serene Lee shared their wealth of knowledge, in particular iron supplementation for iron deficient athletes and “period”-ised training and nutrition planning beneficial for cyclical female athletes.

We were delighted to be able to offer this opportunity for our women through the generosity of both Rachel and Serene volunteering their time and Toby Brown for offering up the DOME Westralia Plaza as a venue and providing the catering etc.

Thanks goes to our women taking up the opportunity and sharing their experiences so openly and the SPR Women’s Interest Sub-Committee for their efforts in organising the event.

The club is keen on hearing from its women on how it can support them in enjoying their time on the bike, in particular with the club.  Feel free to send ideas, queries etc to
