If you haven’t already, make sure to read about David Menarry’s trip to Glasgow. David always puts in a lot of work training for these events with the side benefit that he gets to travel to some amazing places – huge kudos David 💚

We don’t have many sign-ups for our La Vuelta Family Day 10 September – if you’re interested, speak up now!

For anyone racing in the Peel Womens and Junior Tour 2023 this weekend, all the best!


Women’s 100 Perth 2023 — In conjunction with Rapha Women’s 100, we’re celebrating a sisterhood that stretches beyond borders and breaks down barriers, the Women’s 100 returns for another year. And whether going the distance is challenge enough, or you’re taking it up a gear to push your limits, it’s all about riding it your way. Off road or on, uphill or down, no two riders are the same and nor should your ride be. Up the stakes and up the elevation, or enjoy every minute and tick off a milestone – carve your own path and celebrate in style.

On Sunday 17th September, we’re challenging you to ride 100km in one day, a global connection of shared experience. You in?

Meet: Coode Street Car Park, South Perth Foreshore
Time: 7.30am
Distance: 100km

Heading out to Guilford, into Swan Valley before returning back to South Perth via the Northern Suburbs. There will be a brief stop mid ride with morning tea supplied.

Juniors Ride — Juniors rides will resume on September 9th, 2023, and we look forward to continuing our cycling adventures


From the Ride Coordinator — A few old classic ride routes this weekend, including TV Stations on Saturday and Welsh-Weir on Sunday short hills – what used to be called the “standard” hills ride. Lets hope the rain stays away so that we can welcome Spring in style.

#1. Rides are always more enjoyable when the group stays together, and shares the “work” evenly. This requires planning, self awareness, and sometimes some sacrifices. SPR does the planning, and arranges several groups for our most popular ride – the 7am on Saturday, but also on some weekday rides. It’s up to all of us to make sure we ride with the group that best matches our ability and training plans on the day.

#2. Don’t be a Lemming – and follow other riders blindly. Each one of us is responsible for our safety and that of the riders around us so please remember to check for oncoming traffic at intersections – don’t rely on the “Clear!” call made by the first rider.

#3. Note for Friday’s ride – there are roadworks just after the bike path at the end of Shelly. You may need to stay on the bike path till the bridge.

Enjoy the riding!
