Ride Routes 20th – 26th November

You may describe it as an unintended side effect, but the Tour of Margaret River, in addition to bringing out the best of us on the bike, also seems to bring out an otherwise unseen talent for writing in many of our club members. This time it is a write-up of the experiences of SPR Mens 5 at the hand of David Menarry.

It is a wonderful read, please check it our here.

SPR Christmas Party – There are still tickets available for our annual Christmas Party (2021 Edition) coming up in two weeks time.

It would be wonderful to have you join us.

See all the details here.

SPR Chicks Trash & Treasure Picnic – One woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure! Here’s an opportunity for our women and girlfriends to share and swap cycling gear that is no longer needed, or surplus to requirements, and enjoy afternoon tea on the club.

Don’t forget… it is this weekend!

All the details here.

Club Kit Shop Open – The weather has turned and plenty of riders are emerging from their winter hibernation. We all know that the most important consideration when you head out on the bike is…looking good! 😜 The club kit shop is open again but closes on 1 December, so be quick! Don’t forget that you can try the Mayeur Cycling Clubline kit on at R&D Speedshop in Claremont.

Criterium Season is here! – If you have been watching social media you will be aware that criterium season is here with both Masters and Peel holding crits last weekend.

This weekend you have options as well:

From the Ride Coordinator – So focus this week is on the ride we do on the favourite day of the working week for many, and that is our Friday morning ride.

Firstly – on the route itself. From November 29th this year, through to “end of January”, there will be works along Leach Hwy including Webb Street, which for those that ride regularly on Friday is the left turn we take off the Leach Hwy at the retirement village on the corner. At this point we are seeking more information on alternate routes where we can maintain as much of the fun roll throughs along Shelley foreshore as possible but this may be compromised for a little while whilst the works are completed. Early indications are that the corresponding bike path may be affected as well. Aside from our Friday ride, this area is also popular for lots of riders so heads up. We will provide more guidance in next weeks blog.

The second thing is also one related to it’s unofficial title as “the recovery ride” (after the Thursday ride). Feedback from more than a few riders of late is that as fitness picks up leading into summer, so too is the pace of the rides and some people are either struggling to stay on or are choosing to stay away from the ride. The route itself takes us on many busy roads at 6am in the morning, so we are keen to emphasise the safety aspects of riding at this time and not have group strung out along the Albany Hwy or Manning Road.  Doesn’t matter if you are a regular rider or an occasional one, we would like to make sure that everyone gets to their destination safely so please be aware of how people are faring during the ride and the capability of the group to maintain speed. If you’re after a fast paced ride then we recommend choosing an alternate ride.
