Road Racing


Last Thursday we had an exciting race with a forecast full of extreme thunderstorm warnings. We still had 24 cyclists turned up to Piries for the 11km Stewart's Bus Lines time trial. CLICK HERE for the full report and results AND THE CURRENT LADDER (So far so good for Andrew - or is it Josh, or Bruce or David???)

This week's race is the Bakker Plumbing Handicap - a longer ride out the Tolmie Road.  Mark Ross, Lou Bretherton, and Steve Flew are on duty with Di Condie and Tim Ross the Commissionaires.  Entries to Di by 8pm Wednesday please.

Have a look at the following link – a good reminder about car v bike -


Also the tour de flavour weekend is approaching incorporating the Scody High Country Cycle Challenge and the Mansfield Mt Buller Criterium and race. Set aside March 17th and 18th. Sign up for one of the events or come and watch the action. If you are around and want to help there will be a few small jobs that need a few hands - and it's fun to be involved. Please call John Lithgow if you can help out - 0407301232
