Cycling Accident

On Thursday last week we had an unfortunate incident during the morning cycle session. Christine and James were hit by a car as it was turning out of Waraker onto Hepburn. Luckily the car was travelling at a low speed and injuries were minor (two broken bikes however). Thanks to the people who helped out and supported, this is not the first time we have had an accident at this junction. Please be extra careful when approaching. Wishing Christine a speedy recovery.

THURSDAY 15th November


Venue: Meet at Celebrations Whitfords
Time: 5:45am– 7:00am

The Hepburn Loops ride is based on laps around a 10km circuit in Hillarys. We start at Whitfords Shops (outside Celebrations) and take Whitfords Ave to Hepburn Ave, then back to Whitfords along Marmion Ave – we turn left into Banks Ave down to the roundabout and head past Bunnings and back onto Whitfords Ave – thus completing 1 loop/circuit. We ride as a bunch and try to do 3-4 loops (riders can peel off at any time as suit their needs). Ideally, the first loop is done at any easy pace and then we build the pace for each lap – the aim is to keep the pace consistent throughout the whole lap – no surging, no sprint efforts. The final lap is your fastest effort but steady the whole way. Great training for everyone.


Venue: Flinders Reserve, Broadbeach Boulevard, Hillarys.
Time: 6:00pm – 7:00pm
Cost: $5 or less with a Training Card purchased through Register Now or Direct Deposit, see below for details.
