Cycling Update Thursday & Saturday

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

Just a quick note on cycling this week specifically for Thursday and Saturday. The details in the weekly update were not 100% correct for these two dates – so this week Thursday & Saturday the rides are as follows:

Thursday 25th Oct

RIDE: HILLARYS AND SACRED HEART

Venue: Meet at Bottlemart Whitfords
Time: 5:45am– 7:00am
Details: This ride is scheduled every fortnight and is a short hills training session on local roads. The route offers some flexibility on distance and pace depending on how you feel on the day as the hill repeat area is a 2 km loop with either 3, 2 or 1 times up the Hocking Pde Hill, thus you can add or subtract a loop and then wait at the regroup area at the top of the hill on Hocking Parade behind Sacred Heart College. A pre-ride briefing will be given.

See WEBSITE for more information.

Saturday 27th Oct

RIDE: YANCHEP/TWO ROCK & BREAKWATER DRV

6am start from Sorrento Surf Club.

The Yanchep/Two Rocks ride is the clubs regular Saturday ride and can be made any length you wish as it is an out and back course. The documented ride shows 4 total distances being 64km, 74km, 90km & 112km. It is suitable for all group levels of riders as we group ride to the Burns Beach & Marmion road intersection and then head out in groups – Group 1 – plus 33km/hr, Group 2 – plus 30km/hr, Group 3 less 30km/hr.

PRE NOTICE – Saturday 3rd Nov

RIDE: Power Station Time Trial

This Weekend at NCTC

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

Saturday ride this weekend is Whiteman Park and Gnangara Rd – this is a new ride profile trying to avoid the massive amounts of road works that are happening on most of our ride locations at the moment. There are some issues along Gnangara Rd but we will ensure that we take care in these areas and the ride should be great total 60km see https://connect.garmin.com/modern/course/20499942.

We have scheduled the next 5 weeks of club rides which are all shown in the Calendar on the website. These rides are designed to build us up to the excellent Lancelin ride that is set for the 6th Oct, so dust off the bike and get out there to build your endurance for the iconic Club Scones ride to Lancelin (did I mentioned the scones and pub lunch).

Planned Schedule:
1st – Whiteman & Gnangara (60km)
8th – Power Station TT (80km)
15th – Yanchep/Two Rocks (60km – 112km)
22nd – Guildford Hills (75km)
29th – Freo & River (50km/90km)
6th Oct – Lancelin (135km)

Couple this with the clubs Long Run on Sunday. This run is scheduled for 7:30AM (not 7AM), this week the plan is to run to Scarborough and back or if you want a little less, then of course you can turn around at any point. Our host Rob Hall will be bringing down lollies and water that were not used for the Surf to Surf event so the aid stations are covered, the course if covered all you need to do is be there at SSLSC at 7:30AM on Sunday. We hope to see a good number of you down for this great weekly run event.

So do not wonder what you missed, get out there and be a part of your club this weekend, see you out there!

39017832_1772891889497200_5648870815970623488_nIn 2018 the club added the Underground Surf to Surf run event to coincide with the annual City to Surf and offer our club members an alternate run event. There are three distances offered 4, 12 & 21km starting and ending at the Sorrecto SLSC.

The event starts at 7:30am and all runners will head south. With the 4km runners turning at Watermans and the 12 & 21km runners turning at South Trigg. The 21 km runners will head north from the SSLSC for an additional 4.5kms north to just past the Whitfords round about. See the Course Maps below.

Water/Aid Stations

There are plenty of water stations along this section of the coast and it is expected that these should suffice. As this is not a race event please accept that there may be a few fellow runners partaking of the water.

39017832_1772891889497200_5648870815970623488_nBit late notice but I was thinking it would be great to maybe do the C2S Half and then looked at the price, transport requirements, rego pack pickup and running in the large crowd. A light bulb went on and I touched base with the current Sunday long run team and checked with the committee and we decided to try setting up a new event to co-inside with the C2S. So on Sunday the 26th Aug at 7:30AM we will be holding the inaugural Underground Surf to Surf offering 4, 12 and 21km distances.

Forget the crowds, costs and complex pick up and transport issues. Run along the best part of the coast (SSLSC south bound) with your mates. More details to follow but we are keen to know how many of you are wanting to take part. So if you are keen, like or comment on this post.

There will be an option to pull out for 65kms if you need to go shorter or need to be back earlier.

Joondalup Loop Anti

Thursday Morning Ride Change

Written by David Martin on . Posted in News

With the on-going road works on West Coast Drive near Pinarroo it is worth making a few temporary adjustments to avoid this area. So for tomorrow we will try to good old Joondalup Loop ride that we used to do every second Thursday. Full details for this ride are published here – Ride Joondalup Loop Anticlockwise. It is a great ride with some challenging sections, a number of stops due to lights etc but is certainly a lot better than dealing with the road works and will provide a change. Looking forward to seeing you all at Celebrations Bottle Shop for a 6AM departure tomorrow.
