WEEKLY UPDATE

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

There was a great turnout for the Annual Battle of the Beach Aquathlon on Friday night, with North Coast taking out the overall honours.  Well done to everyone that participated.  Sorrento turned on its usual Friday night washing machine, full report of the night to follow.

Stuart King put on a fantastic Bike Maintenance Workshop on Sunday with a great attendance.  New and seasoned triathletes attended and got hands on experience in changing tyres, brake and gear adjustment, cleaning and general maintenance and those all-important bike rules.  Thanks Stuart and yes, next time, let’s have the bar open!!!

A friendly reminder to all our cyclists, please remember road safety rules and road manners.  We share the road with motor vehicles and other cyclists and to be safe, we all need to do the right thing.  The need for speed can sometimes out way basic road rules and safety precautions.  The Website has some great information on Group Riding Etiquette which I encourage you all to read before your next outing. Group Riding Etiquette.
