Our very own Helen Vagnoni is on the mission of a life time. She has made it to the very big one – the mama of them all. The Ironman world Championships in Hawaii. The race is this weekend and the good news is that you can follow Helen’s progress every inch (well maybe kilometre) of the way on Ironman live. Please keep the comment up during the day on North Coasts Facebook and lets all think of her as she toughs it out in the wind, heat and humidity that is Ironman Hawaii.
As of this week all rides will be found on the website in the Training drop down under Regular Bike Rides. Saturday, Tuesday & Thursday rides will always be the same ride unless there is a post on the website advising otherwise. For Thursday the 2 routes will be decided by the date – Hepburn Loops on evens and Joondalup Loop on unevens (the orientation of the Joondalup route will simply alternate).
There are some Alternative Bike Rides listed on the Training drop down – these are Club endorsed rides and members are encouraged to arrange a group to do these rides on a Saturday – the variety will be welcomed by many. BUT please note these will only always only be alternative and will not replace the regular ride.
Monday running at Mullaloo is now 4:45pm to 5:45pm
In the lead up to the Triathlon season starting, for the next 10 weeks there will be an extra run session on Wednesdays at Flinders from 4:45pm to 5:45pm. Cost is $2.50
North Coast nutrition sponsor 32GI will be running a sampler session at Sorrento Surf Club this Saturday. All members are encouraged to partake (what a shame they won’t be at Woodbridge Park for the Lancelin riders). Sampling will commence at 8.00am – until they run out of juice.
VERY important rider protocols.
This is a long ride on roads that can be very busy You must at all times ride with caution and be very vary of traffic, especially along Wanneroo Road. NOTE: You must ride in single file on Wanneroo Road at all times. Only pass slower riders when it is safe to do so.
Tour ‘de Lancelin – The Cause
Club ride is to raise funds for Breast Cancer and Prostate Cancer. So dress for the occasion – on the ride wear as much pink or blue as you can. Buy the merchandise – “NCTC Lancelin 2012” wrist bands – these will also be your ticket for the evening BBQ. Bring your own lunch for Sat (or eat in town) and also bring breakfast for Sun. There is plenty of fridge room to store your food.
