Ride Routes 22nd – 28th June

Call for Sponsors — SPR Tour of Margaret River 2024. The Tour of Margaret River three day cycling event has been a key success of the South Perth Rouleurs through the Clubs commitment to providing a well organised, safe and social ride experience. The hard work and dedication of each and every cyclist in the months leading up to the event and its race volunteers ensure a quality experience for all.

Whilst teams have not yet been announced, this year we have received over eighty (80!) expressions of interest… so however it works out, we’re going to have a a sea of SPR green 💚. We are proud of the the opportunities we have provided for our members to participate in what is arguably the best event of its kind in Australia.

And here in lies an opportunity… sponsorship enables us a club to enhance the experience for members of our teams — through event-specific club kit and the like — providing a sense camaraderie and identity, whilst at the same time promoting local businesses through involvement with the sport of cycling.

A real win-win.

If this is you or your business we would love to hear from you!

Please get in touch via race@southperthrouleurs.com.au.

We will provide preference to any club members who would like to sponsor, but also consider sharing this opportunity with any businesses that you know of that might be interested.

SPR Ride Leader Program Call for Expressions of Interest — SPR’s training rides set us apart as a cycling Club; we have a large range of group ride on weekends, covering all skills and abilities, with a broad range of opportunities for people to cycle in a group every day during the week.  Since its inception in 2009, a key feature of the feedback the Club receives is the value delivered by our organised and regular training rides. A key part of running these training rides is our ride leadership programme. Consistent, trained and visible ride leaders results in safer, more enjoyable ride experiences for everyone.

To this end, the Club developed a ride leader development program, with the objectives of:

  1. Developing SPR ride leaders’ knowledge and skills of both ride leadership and core cycling skills
  2. Building the confidence of ride leaders to ensure ride consistency and enhanced decision making during group rides
  3. Growing the pool of capable, confident ride leaders

We are now seeking Expressions of Interest from SPR members who would like to be part of our next public Ride Leader Development Program.

If interested, please submit your EOI via this form:

There is space for questions as part of the EOI, but if you have any questions about the Ride Leader Program before submitting your EOI, please send them through to development@southperthrouleurs.com.au and we will get back to you ASAP.

Juniors Ride — Please check your email tomorrow for confirmation regarding our Juniors Ride this weekend. Or reach out via email on juniors@southperthrouleurs.com.au or feedback@southperthrouleurs.com.

From the Ride Coordinator — There’s a big possibility that it may be raining Saturday morning. If so, and you are out & about, take care on the slippery roads especially on roundabouts. Make sure you are visible and ride in a predictable manner.

As you know, our ride leaders are volunteers, and most do not want to ride in bad weather. So please be understanding if the ride leaders can’t make it. On that note, have you thought about becoming a ride leader? Speak to one of your friendly ride leaders if you have any questions. See the main blog for more info and the link to the EOI.

Please note, there is no ride leader scheduled for development this weekend.

IMPORTANT: We have changed the start time of our Sunday Hills rides back to our winter time of 7am. Take note 🥶
