Ride Routes 27th November – 3rd December

Many of you may remember December 2017 when we took the SPR club photo above. Good looking club right?? But since that time we’ve refreshed our club kit with Mayeur as our new kit supplier, and we feel the time has come to see how everyone scrubs up in 2022.

And yes, you read right – 2022. We figured to provide everyone plenty of notice, not to mention the opportunity to order kit before 1 December (see below) and have it arrive in time for our club photo. We will confirm soon but the date will likely be 29 January or 5 February 2022.

We think that the result is most spectacular when everyone is the same kit – so fair warning – current kit only, no Ride Leader or TOMR editions allowed πŸ™‚

SPR Christmas Party – We still need to sell a few more tickets, not just because we want the pleasure of your company (!!), but also as we are still a little short of the minimum for the venue.

Get on it people! Hope to see you there πŸ™‚

Tickets and all the details here.

SPR Chicks Monthly Coffee Ride – Calling SPR Chicks for the final ride of 2021. The ride starts at 6:00am under the Narrows (city side) and ends with coffee at Botanicals Cafe Kings Park at 7.00am.

The ride is an easy conversational paced ride (approx 25 km/hr on flat) with new/beginner riders & all types of bikes welcome! Strictly no-drop.

And this this ride, we have plans afoot to capture some of the ride on film (well ok, digital footage) for a promo we are working on.

You can get a preview of the course here.

Love to see you there.

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 racing this weekend – If you’re interested in racing this weekend, you have options.

Keep in mind that entries close Friday evening.

From the Ride Coordinator – So lots going on as we head into the last month of the year and towards Christmas, including our first really hot riding weekend for a while and maybe as far back as last March. Just something that’s worth pointing out to all riders before the weekend as it may be worth considering adding that second water bottle to your bike or possibly that hydralyte booster to your water if that is your thing for this weekend’s rides.

Couple of notifications worth highlighting. If you’re a regular to our Sunday Coffee ride or our Sunday Short Hills social ride, please note that both of these rides will be changing to summer start times of 6am from the first Sunday in December. This will mean that all our Sunday rides leaving from Coode Street will commence at 6am from Sunday the 5th December until the first weekend in March. Just confirming that is not this Sunday but the following Sunday.Β 

Speaking about Sunday, a reminder that our monthly gravel ride is on this weekend kicking off and finishing at the Darlington Post Office. As we have a number of our intrepid regular ride leaders away riding the Munda Biddi, only the Heritage Trail will be offered this time as a lead ride.
