Ride Routes 16th – 22th October

Our Women Interests Subcommittee is doing some excellent work, most recently running an afternoon session on food and nutrition – Fueling for Endurance.

Thank you to Nutritionist Lesley Burch and Passionate Foodie Mandy McEvoy who ran the session. I have it on good authority that everyone had a wonderful afternoon, walked away with plenty of healthy and cycling-relevant food ideas.

I invite all women to join our SPR Chicks Facebook Group keep in touch, and look out for upcoming events.

SPR Kit Order Arrival – This week is good news on the SPR kit front.

We have two kits orders available for pickup this Saturday at Dome after the ride.

  1. Our most recent SPR kit order
  2. Our sponsored Tour of Margaret River 2021 kit

The regular SPR kit order will be available from R&D Speedshop Claremont from 1pm.

I would also like to offer thanks to our sponsors for nine SPR Tour of Margaret River 2021 teams. Thank you Pilbara Resource Group, Drillman, Total Marine Technology and Cathay Mortgages.

SPR Team Time Trial – 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.

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

From the Ride Coordinator – So for those very long time members or perhaps those waiting in anticipation for “the call up”, you may be wondering why we haven’t seen an announcement around a call for expressions of interest in ride leading. And the reason is pretty simple, we need the time to do it justice.

We are very proud of both the history of our ride lead programme and our current crop of dedicated volunteers who help guide our weekly main rides on Saturdays and “unofficially” represent us on weekly training rides. As a club, the programme helps differentiate ourselves from other riding clubs and is a central element in the delivery of our core values of safe, inclusive, organised and social.

Given the importance of the programme we didn’t just want to “shoe horn” it in between the Tour of Margs and Christmas time. It was traditionally a tight timeline to complete, and inevitably rain affected, so we have decided to move the programme to February next year. So if you are thinking of wanting to join our band of ride lead volunteers, we will put the call out before Christmas and begin the training programme in the new year.
