Weekly Update

Written by Moya Jones on . Posted in News

The wet and cold weather was upon us on Saturday, with only 4 brave souls turning up for the Saturday ride. 2 went home and the other 2 decided to mountain bike up to the nearest cafe!!!   I guess you were all just too tired from all your amazing Busselton achievements.  Don’t forget swimming over the winter months, it will be nice and warm in the pool.  It’s good chance to practice your technique and keep up with your fitness level.  Our expert coaches will give you all the advise and training you need.  You can always have a nice warm hot chocolate after..

The Kalbarri Adventurethon is happening again over the June long weekend (4th June) and I believe there are quite a few North Coasters heading up to our beautiful north (it should be warmer than Perth).  You can keep an eye out on our Facebook page for information or see the attached link below in the coming events section.

Don’t forget to get your tickets for the End of Season Party on 23rd July at Joondalup Resort.  Early bird tickets get the chance to win over night accommodation and breakfast for 2 at the resort to be used on the night or any time you choose.  So get your tickets before 20th June to be in the draw.  See Website for details or Register Now.
