Summer Season

I hope all the members enjoyed the winter season. With the season winding up last week with the Hilly TT, there is a short break before we get into our summer season.

Summer Season

Criteriums

Planning is well underway for the summer season. The Club has committed to running 8 Criteriums through summer. This will form the PDCC Criterim series, with Club Criterium Champs planned for April. Members will also have the opportunity to race in The Ring series this summer being presented by CycleSport, this is shaping up to be similar to last year, planning is still underway, so stay tuned for both these series.

Time Trials

After a poll, it was decided to move the Time Trials from a Wednesday evening to Sunday mornings. The club will run an 8-race series over Summer for those Time Trialists amongst us. Racing will start at 9am on the Hopelands Course. The Time Keepers TT will be in April to round out the series. Again, dates are being finalised, but you will see these real soon.

Windup / AGM

Our windup is on November 4 at Peel Estate Winery. Please ensure you register here so we have numbers for drinks catering etc. Cost is $5.00, and free for Juniors under 18. Come along and support the winners. It will be a wonderful day.

Incorporated in the Windup this year is the AGM which will take place at 1pm. The club wants to do more, but we need help. Please come along and support your club.

One area the club wants to grow is with the Juniors / Social aspect of the club. It is planned to form a new subcommittee to assist with the social aspect of the club. This subcommittee will be responsible for running social events, or BBQ’s at races etc. All proceeds are planned to go into the Peel Junior Fund to assist with Junior Training and expenses. If you have an interest in this, please talk to one of the Committee and nominate at the AGM. Subcommittee members DO NOT have to attend regular club committee meetings…

Cycling Australia have a membership deal on at the moment. Make sure you check this out to get your membership in so you can enjoy all the racing this summer.

See you all at the Windup on November 4.
