'Hot as buggery' news

While it’s so hot, stay inside and have a read of this week’s newsletter.
What? You haven’t subscribed?! Really…?

CA membership renewals

CA renew 2019.jpg

It’s that time of year for Cycling Australia (road) memberships again!
If you haven’t already, please make sure you renew before you enter your next race. Here’s the link you need to renew your membership so you can race in 2019.
We’ll print out a membership list later this week to see who’s renewed. If you renew after Wednesday, you’ll need to bring your receipt with you to the race to prove that you have a valid 2019 race license.
Remember, no membership - no race!

Road racing starts again this week

As it’s a little on the warm side at the moment, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the weather. If it’s too hot to race, we’ll let you know. The Heat Policy is on the Road Racing Info page.
Until then, the Rob Curtis Memorial Hillclimb is on!.
Entries to John as usual via sms on 0428 503 437 by 8pm on Wednesday please.
Please also keep in mind that we now have new marshal instructions. If you’re rostered on, please make yourself familiar with them (like everyone else does when they’re marshalling and YOU’RE racing!) so our races run smoothly and safely.
Also, the rostered Commissaire will contact marshals in the days leading up to the race to discuss what’s required.

Still need volunteers for next weekend’s VDHS

Yes, we still need a few more. Please email Bruce if you have time next weekend. Remember, it’ll be about 10 degrees cooler up on Buller, so escape the heat AND help out the club!

Are you on Instagram?

So is the club! To help promote the upcoming Mansfield Tour (exciting news to be announced about that shortly…) we’ve opened an Instagram account.
Please give us a follow - @mansfieldmtbullercc

Free to a good home.

He’s giving them away to someone who needs them!

Call in to All Terrain Cycles to have a look and try them on.
