Offer to RBCC Members

We are delighted to announce the following offers from one of our Club Sponsors, Ciclismo. Many of you will know Daniele Vanolini & Anna Murray who have been active members in our club, but maybe you have never been to one of their training sessions. Now is your chance! As part of Ciclismo’s ongoing support of the Club, they are offering all members (beginners through to the experienced) the chance to improve bike handling skills and be safer and more predictable in a bunch. Try a session and then take these skills back to our Club Rides – you will be surprised how much you can learn!!

FREE SESSION – LAST THURSDAY OF THE MONTH
Commencing next Thursday, 26 October 2017 and continuing on the last Thursday of each month through to March 2018 there will be a free session open to all RBCC members (meeting at 6am at the Showgrounds entrance of Centennial Park, near Robertson & Lang Roads). Please register your interest with daniele@ciclismo.com.au as you will need to complete the necessary waivers. Sessions will last for one hour and you should ensure you have the necessary lights on your bike given the mornings are still a little dark.

ADDITIONAL OFFER FOR NEW RBCC MEMBERS
For all new members joining RBCC from October Ciclismo would like to make the following offer:
1 x personal session for only $40 (usual price is $80) – an hour of training to prepare you for bunch riding, focusing on sitting on the wheel, bunch etiquette and bike handling skills. Again please register your interest with daniele@ciclismo.com.au

We would like to thank Daniele and Anna from Ciclismo for their generous support of the Club and we hope that members will take up these offers and gain some really important bike handling and bunch riding skills that will be transferable regardless of whether you want to race or just ride recreationally in a group.

 

Monday 4G/3G ride

A group
This is the main RBCC ride which leaves CP Randwick gates at 6am sharp.
Captain (the ever capable) Morry. 
This is mainly  for the stronger riders ie B graders and A graders.
B group – please sms me your mobile number.
This is designed for those C grade and D grade riders not quite up to the A ride pace.
It will leave Hyde Park (college and william) usual spot at 6am  prompt.
The idea is to have a bit of an easy  head start up the highway to Turramurra.
If the A ride catches us we will maintain our B ride pace.
We will not expect them to wait for us at any point but if they wish to slow down they are of course welcome.
It is advisable to choose your group at the beginning and then stay together.
The core B group will stay together and will not chase the A group.
All recruits to the B ride will be waited for at the usual strategic spots ie after each hill.
Make sure you have my phone number 0405554347 and SMS your phone number to me in case of an unusual delay.
The assumption is that you are capable of a 100km ride and have done so fairly recently.
BOTH groups will decide on their 4G options at the Galston summit.
Safety is important at all times:
Please check your tires, air pressures, batteries, cleats etc before you leave.
At traffic light changes the B group will not necessarily chase the A group through if the groups are big.
Do the descents at your own pace as it makes little difference if you are slow.
All riders need to be sure you each have sufficient water, a spare tube, air,  food etc
The front riders of each group will make the call on amber lights so be prepared for both options ie to stop or to roll.

October Long Weekend

Due to the long weekend, there are some changes to our usual calendar!

SATURDAY – No racing in the afternoon!  However for club members only we will be running our club champs at 8.30am at Heffron Park (see other post).

SUNDAY – Usual rides are ON!  Our Waterfall and Cronulla rides will be on as usual.

MONDAY – Gorges Ride departing 6.00am.  As is the tradition on a public holiday, we will again be riding north with options to do 3 or 4 gorges!

Have a fun and safe long weekend!

Club Champs – This Saturday at 8.30am

When:    Saturday, 30 September 2017 at 8.30am

Where:   Heffron Park

What:     Back to Back Crits

As there is no usual Saturday racing on this day due to the long weekend, we are going to run the back to back crits in the morning starting at 8.30am.  If you don’t feel like racing we would love some people to come down and assist with running the race – so don’t be shy!
