Ride Routes 21st – 27th August

With things to write but running out of time to write them, I will hold off and use this week’s blog to announce SPR’s La Vuelta 2021 Dinner at the Spaniard and wish racers all the best for the 96th Collie to Donnybrook Cycling Classic being held this weekend.

For those of you keeping score, you will know that we had so much fun celebrating the Giro and the Tour that we decided to do it all again for the Vuelta.

To this end, SPR Community Development Committee Member Carol set about a research mission to find the most appropriate atmosphere and cuisine. We think you will be pleased with the result.

Join us at The Spaniard on Wednesday the 1st September for the SPR La Vuelta 2021 Dinner.

See the SPR shop for the menu and all the details.

Tickets available now in the SPR Shop here. Numbers are limited, so if you are keen don’t delay.

For all of those fortunate enough to make it onto the start list for the 96th Collie to Donnybrook Cycling Classic – it seemed to fill up very quickly! – do well and enjoy the race.

I know that a number of club members have a long history and lots of amazing memories connected to this race.


Don’t forget that the club kit shop is open. It will close again on 22 August to allow a bit of extra time for shipping so that kit arrives in time for the Tour of Margaret River 2021 Edition.

Head to the club’s kit order page on the Mayeur website.

From the Ride Coordinator – Starting this week with a quick shout out to all those SPR members who won’t be with us for our main ride on Saturday but instead will be heading down for the annual Collie Donnybrook cycle classic. Good luck to all those in green who are participating. Hope the day is an enjoyable one for you all.

For me, the timing of this event as well as the Vuelta a Espagna signals we are coming to the end of winter so spring is almost upon us. For many of us, the training for ToMR starts to really ramp up and the club has a few events planned in between to assist you in that training (Watertower and TT here we come).

Hopefully also on the change is our lousy winter weather. Although we may just have to wait another week for something similar to last weekend (which was an absolute Jatz Cracker) with light showers predicted overnight and into Saturday morning.  Hopefully the moisture stays away long enough for us to get to the top of Cresswell and back for a coffee. At the very least the forecast for Sunday looks better by the day.

Whatever cycling you choose make it enjoyable and safe one.
