Ride Routes 9 – 15th April

It seems slightly crazy to me, but Easter is upon us already. Maybe it’s just me.

If you have time away with family or friends – enjoy. If not, then perhaps riding some extra kilometres is on your agenda – and well – SPR can help with that. Between our Annual VP’s ride, Public Holiday rides plus all the usual suspects, we’ve got you covered.


The Tour de Brisbane is on this weekend, and apart from looking like an excellent ride, offers the opportunity of qualifying for the 2022 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships in Trento, Italy this September.

We wish all the best to SPR members Michael Bonner and Adam Ralph, who will be competing.

Check out the website for all the details (including live tracking).



The epic Three, Five and Se˄en is being held on Sunday 15 May in Nannup. The shorter courses, 50km (Three) and 85km (Five) are on the same gravel, clay/mud, quartz grit and mica tracks as SE˄EN and have plenty of room to pass. These distances are still challenging and designed as preparation for taking on the full SE˄EN course in future years. 

With a 10 hour cut off time for SE˄EN to cover 125km, finishing is a triumph.

If interested check out accommodation around Nannup before registering for 2022 here (official website here).

If gravel rides sounds like something you would like to get into (for 2023!!), SPR can organise an information session around the end of May; bikes, training and preparation. Contact Carol comdev@southperthrouleurs.com.au if interested.

From the Ride Coordinator – So with the amount of road works (planned and not planned) around our fair city, a lot of our ride routes continue to be challenged in regards to disruptions. Whilst  Metronet is a great contribution to our public transport system, it is causing disruptions to some of our northern routes around Bayswater station and will soon have an impact on some of our southern routes when Cockburn – Thornlie ramps up work as well. Added to this is the ongoing work to ramp Leach Highway over Welshpool road and regular maintenance required to upkeep roads. So if you haven’t seen some of your “favorites” for a while there’s a good chance it’s been impacted and work arounds will be required.

So the choice of route for this week (hopefully) ducks and weaves and circumvents some of the major routes but does take the busy road down to Freo and back. If you haven’t ridden it before, do yourself a favor and check it out before you ride so we can be as safe as we can when we are riding out there.

One thought on “Ride Routes 9 – 15th April”

  1. The monthly Wednesday transition/ development ride resumes after the hotter months. The 30km ride starts 10am from Coode St on the second Wednesday of each month running until November. The start time accommodates those who want to try out group riding but cannot make a Saturday ride. Please pass message on to those who might be interested.
