The much anticipated Eastern Creek Road Race is on this Saturday! The Club hires the track exclusively for our own use, so get behind the Club and support this race! All members are welcome as long as you hold a race licence. It doesn’t matter if you have not done any other events in the Club Champs program, you can still come and race!
Race details are:
– Start time 6.45am
– 11 laps for A (44km)
– 10 laps for B (40km)
– 9 laps for C (36km)
If we get enough for D then they can do 7 laps (28km)
We will then be meeting for coffee at Trafalgar Street Espresso, 18 Trafalgar Street, Annandale!
We also need a volunteer to help run the race (timekeeping etc) – any takers?
As part of the Junior Development Program the Committee introduced an initiative to support our juniors to realise their dreams of perhaps one day racing overseas. Antoine was the recipient of a grant which contributed to his Belgium racing experience. Read on for Antoine’s third and final blog from his trip – he has learnt a lot about racing and we can’t wait to see him bring back this knowledge as he continues to impress in Australia. Randwick are proud to support Antoine with his dream to race in Europe.

RBCC Junior Interclub Results – 24 March 2018
Ride safety has been at the forefront of the Committee’s agenda for some time. A lot of work has been done by Alex, Chris, Shane and Rick behind the scenes and this culminated in our very first Ride Leader’s Training session held on Wednesday night.
The purpose of the session was to roll-out the Club Ride Etiquette and to spend some time together as a group reinforcing the importance of safety and having some experienced riders setting the example on our Club rides. Whilst we appreciate it is difficult to assign specific ride leaders to each training ride, having a large, core group of members trained in the etiquette will mean that there will generally always be a leader on most rides.
We are excited to be implementing this for all upcoming rides! Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with this document.
ROUND 1 – this Sunday, 18 March 2018 – HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Due to the Camden Cycling Club not receiving police approval for the race, it has been CANCELLED. We apologise to everyone who was looking forward to it, but hope it will be rescheduled soon.
As you are aware, for the first time last year the Club supported a Masters Racing Team. The team was funded by three sponsors being KOM Financial Advice, CPP Wind Engineering and Metrowelding. We would like to continue with the team in 2018 and are now calling for expressions of interest from anyone interested in being a part of it, noting there are up to 10 spots available.
The purpose of the Masters Racing Team is to allow some of our up and coming riders to participate in open events, gaining the experience of working in a team and learning from some of our more experienced riders. Being recognised by the club and in an official team will provide motivation and inspiration to riders. In return, the riders will be ambassadors for our club and will be mentors to our Under 19 Members.
The criteria that you will need to meet to be considered for the team is:
• Be over 30 years of age
• Be a financial member of RBCC
• Be racing A Grade on a Saturday at Heffron Park consistently
• Be able to commit to attending at least 5 open races during the year (noting these usually involve travel given they are held in country locations of NSW) and base your training around this race calendar
• Be prepared to take on a mentor role for our Under 19 members
• Participate in RBCC club rides when possible
• Participate in the RBCC Club Championships program
• Be a good team player and role model for the Club

We are delighted to announce that Tyron Bicknell has joined our Committee as a General Committee Member.
Tyron started cycling in 2001, initially being solely a mountain biker. He got his first road bike (an old, yellow steel Benotto with downtube shifters) in 2002 and joined RBCC as a junior in 2003 and has proudly been a one club man since then.
Nowadays he can be found working as a Project Manager in construction, looking after his 6 month old daughter, and playing with his two dogs! He enjoys getting down to Heffron and racing for RBCC whenever life permits, taking part in mountain bike races and going on the odd adventure ride.
Tyron is looking forward to sitting on the Committee and giving back to the club that’s given him so much over the past 15 years.
We ask you to join with us in welcoming Tyron onto the Committee.
Stay tuned for our first race of 2018 on Saturday, 3 February 2018!
Until then we hope everyone is keeping fit and enjoying their start to the year!
