T’was a very wet Saturday of last and 6 brave souls ventured out from Sorrento.  There was one other, but he mumbled something about ..”I left Scotland for sunny Perth, I’m not riding in this shite…”  or something like that….maybe he said Ireland or England, I don’t remember exactly, he left. And we all got very wet but it was a great, fun ride down to Fremantle.

Are you interested in putting a team together for the Busso half?  We have a free team spot available if you are willing to raise money for a worthy cause; Try For Someone Who Can’t.  If you are interested, please email David Martin at president@northcoasttriclub.org.au.  But hurry, this offer is only available for a limited time…and Busso is just around the corner.

Hope you all had a great week, looking ahead we have the final Aquathlon this Friday…can Karen take out the top honours??  We will have to wait and see.

The weekend calendar is pretty full with lots of options.  The Saturday Club rides will not have their usual group leaders, but the club has scheduled the Yanchep/Two Rocks ride.

The Mullaloo Triathlon is on this Sunday.  This triathlon is a club run event and promises to be ripper.   A great pre-race for Busso!!

Don’t forget the End of Season Party 23rd July!!!! Tickets are available here.

North Coast Triathlon Club encourages all riders to wear an ID band when out cycling.  This should be place on your person and not on the bike.  ID Bands are available before most rides for $15.
