Australia re-creates world famous transport photo.

On Sunday 9th September 69 volunteers, 69 bicycles, 60 cars and one bus gathered in Canberra to recreate a world-renowned photograph taken more than 20 years ago to demonstrate the advantages of bus and bicycle travel in congested cities. The captured image shows the typical space occupied in a city street by three common modes of transport—cars, bicycles and a bus—and is being made available free of charge to organisations, group and individuals to help promote the efficiency of public transport and cycling in congested cities.

It would not be in Max’s nature to take credit for the evolution of the North Coast Tri Club and he would be the first to point out that he was only one of a key group of people who had the desire, tenacity and vision to bring the North Coast Triathlon Club into being.

The club and all its members past and present owes a huge debt of gratitude to this group of founding members and, indeed, to the people that continue to give selflessly of their time to manage and run the club to this very day.

Do The Right Thing

Hello Folks, I rode into the wind and with the rain on the PSP from south to North today. Very hard slog. The going was slow. Because I was travelling quite slowly, I did notice a lot of rubbish beside the path. I counted 150 gel/bar wrappers in the section from Pinjarra Road to South Street. Mostly GU and Carboshotz wrappers. These were just the ones on the side of the path and obvious to see. There was other rubbish as well. I would not want to guess at how many wrappers may be in the bushes or more than a metre from the edge of the path.

This is a great function to attend not only will you get to hear all the exciting activities planned for the coming season, but you could be one of the lucky winners of a priority entry to next May’s Busselton IM 70.3. At the same event last year 20 North Coasters walked away with the goods. The tension of having to sit in front of your computer on the opening day of race registrations is not much fun, so come along the odd are good with 50 priority entries given away on the night.

Yepoon – Take Two

Written by Zena Coffey on . Posted in News

Having had a near death experience first time round when I tried my hand at the 2011 Ironman 70.3 Yeppoon in Far Northern Queensland (FNQ), one would think that most (sane) people would have been deterred in going back to have another go. Apart from the nasty little stingers – definitely not good for people with allergies, and the very stormy waters resembling a scene from ‘DAS BOOT’, the rest as they say, is history and a decent two-beer story at that. Suffice it to say for present purposes that I, of course, couldn’t take that lying down and not finishing a race due to “environmental circumstances” is paramount to ego death by slow torture.
