Ride Routes 11th – 17th June

SPR is pleased to formally launch the club’s participation in the Tour of Margaret River for 2022, and call for Expressions of Interest from riders and/or volunteers who are considering joining an SPR team for this year’s event.

The event runs in November so there is plenty of time for preparation, and SPR has lots of support for riders, no matter what your goals.

Most of you will have received an email the weekend just gone — though check your spam folder as we are just getting our e-mail system working again and have hard reports of emails going missing.

You can read our mail-out here, even if you did not receive the email directly 😎

It contains a link to Expression of Interest form and links to the full pack from our information session.

Get involved! If you are interested, please respond no later than Sunday 19 June.

From the Ride Coordinator — Well it looks like the weatherman finally realised it’s winter, and we’re gonna have to deal with some wet roads for a little while, including most of the weekend. For those venturing beyond Zwift, remember to lower tyre pressure 10-15psi for extra grip in the rain (and a smoother ride).

To try and offset the weather, I’ve chosen the shortest Saturday route we have – Abernathy Rd, with a nice downwinder back home along Guilford Rd for both main and transitional groups on Saturday. Remember the road changes near the start as we head out East from the carpark – there’s a new left lane separated by a narrow median strip. Bigger groups are better off on the right of the strip, which only lasts about half a km.
