The PDCC committee wish to advise an immediate halt to our racing calendar.
We have had a fantastic summer season culminating in the club winning the interclub points competition last weekend. It is very disappointing to have to cancel the Summer Crit Series with two races to go, but the current situation requires this action from the Club to fulfil our social responsibility.
All events planned have been put on hold until we receive advice that the environment has changed. If you have entered any future event, a refund will be processed as soon as possible via EntryBoss. The points competition will be finalised and prizes will be awarded at our windup, however we will not have a Club Criterium Champion.
Out priorities for the year are the 2020 Peel Womens Tour and the Peel Classic. We are hoping the environment will change in time for the Peel Junior and Women’s Tour planned for May 23, however we cannot guarantee this.
It is heartbreaking for the club committee to make this decision, we have a wonderful committee, volunteers, members and community, and we will miss racing just as much as our competitors.
Please, keep riding and training, it is great for your health, and helps you to practice your social distancing. We will be back, we just can’t tell you when, but it might well be sooner than you think.
Please support your local bike shop. They are wonderful supporters of the club and everything cycling in WA. They are hurting, and need your support. We have plenty of shops in the Peel area including regular supporters KD Cycles, Bike Place Baldivis, and Fleet Cycles Mandurah. Just buy more bike stuff, you can never have too much.
We will attempt to keep you updated on everything as it unfolds.
Stay safe. We WILL Race again soon. See you on the road.
