Ride Routes 21st – 27th May

SPR would like to recognise the value and importance of its volunteers, especially as this week is National Volunteer Week.

To acknowledge the valuable contribution of the skills, knowledge, time and care to nurture and develop our wonderful club, we would like to present our volunteers with a thank you gift after the ride this Saturday.

All you have to do is find our Treasurer at the Dome and she will shout you a coffee.

If you don’t know who our Treasurer is, then put on your detective hat and investigate until you find her 😎. That’s committee and sub-committee members, ride leaders and event volunteers. You know who you are. If we don’t have volunteers, we don’t have a club. A great big thank you.

Take a bow each and every one of you.

SPR Tour of Margaret River Info Night β€” Yesterday we held our TOMR 2022 information night, and had just over 40 people in attendance β€” with half of those not having ridden the Tour before.

Thank you to everyone who participated, and particularly those that presented or shared their experiences – Steve Burns, Carol Dowse, Nicki du Plessis, David Menarry and Tom Goerke. And thank you to Adrian from Melody Wheels for kindly offering his premises for the event. Kudos one and all.

Keep your eyes out for more details and the chance to sign up in the very near future.


So it turns out SEVEN was a huge weekend β€” for everyone that participated, for those that made it onto the podium, for Brendon, Rebecca & team who ran another spectacular event and especially to the many SPR members who donned the green and hit the gravel.

I will apologise in advance for anyone I’ve missed, but am sending out SPR congratulations to our members that made it onto the podium on the weekend.

Congratulations Teneal Attard, Michael Bonner, Stef van Amerongen, Rhianna Farrell, Amy Currie, Vanessa Johnson, Adelia Neethling and Darren Wallis. πŸ’šπŸ’ͺπŸ»πŸ’š

From the Ride Coordinator β€” Once again the weather plays ball, and Saturday looks to be great conditions after a damp week. With the Seven Gravel Race now behind us, this weekend should see more members riding, and more others cyclists out there too. Remember to keep a safe distance between groups should they come together at traffic lights, and to listen to your ride leaders if/when your group needs to pass others on the road.

Speaking of gravel, we’d like to bring back an SPR gravel rideΒ nextΒ Sunday (29th), after a summer break. These are a great opportunity for a safe social sojourn in a serene scenic setting. If you’ve got a mountain or gravel bike and are thinking about it, come along! More info here next week.

It’s Hale Rd Reverse this Saturday – just one gentle climb up to the foot of Gooseberry Hill, then down hill and downwind all the way home.
