Ride Routes 18 – 24th September

This year we have changed location of the team time trial to the Shire of Jarrahdale, on a course similar to Stage One for the Tour of Margaret River.

The Perth Dauphane to the TOMR.

Teams of 6 riders (minimum 4 riders) and the 4th rider will stop the clock. Teams will be released on regular intervals of between 1 and 2 minutes.

A little bit about the course: The time trials start initially sending riders Eastwards out along Nettleton Rd, before heading northward and downhill. The turn around is at the cnr Nettleton and Old Brickworks Rd and teams will head back with some uphill battles ahead. The course is a challenging 31km out-and-back riding over an undulating quiet rural road with total climbing over 440m.

It is a great warm-up for the Tour of Margaret River to train your team skills.

SPR Water Tower Challenge – We are back for the SPR Water Tower Challenge 2021 Edition after a great event last year.

This Sunday, for those that have entered… enjoy!

From the Ride Coordinator – OK so it’s official if the forecast is correct that Spring will be sprung this coming week with a Wednesday forecast in the high 20s and an overnight temperature for those Wednesday SPR Stock Rd repeat die hards (you know who you are!!) of 13 degrees. Yes that’s right, 13 degrees. So if you’re training for the ToMR and Steve Burns hasn’t “burnt you bad” (see what I did there 😀) on the Tuesday training session, come join us for some more pain and no doubt a cracking sunrise that you’ll notice change every repeat. 5.30 meeting at Raffles for all those that are interested and we’ll have you back there around 6.50 or 7.20 if you stop for coffee.

So to the immediate task at hand, the routes for this weekend. Sunday will see the return of some of our newest but more popular hills rides up the ZigZag and beyond. Weather forecast is improving as the week goes on so hopefully there will be little moisture left by the time we get to Sunday.

Due to the northwesterly on Saturday, we will circumnavigate one of Perth”s greatest parklands – Reabold Park. It’s a beautiful ride if you’re not staring at the wheels in front of you for the entire time and Hay Street has now opened both lanes of traffic so hopefully there won’t be any holdups through Subi. At this point it’s looking like the weather window might stay open long enough for us to not get too wet.

Early heads up, the Grand Final long weekend is the following weekend and in addition to the public holiday ride on the Monday, we will also be holding the monthly gravel ride on the Sunday. But more about that next week.
