Riding Update 19th March 2014 – from Jules

Good morning everyone

Congrats to everyone who raced at Mooloolaba – we had plenty of awesome results across individuals & teams (a special personal mention to my teamies, Benita & Jo, for an awesome race to win our teams category)

We will have two rides again this week, leaving at 5am & 6am, so please be at Coffee Club North Lakes by 4.50 or 5.50am, ready to leave on time. For those new to the club, we then come back to Coffee Club & enjoy a social chat & coffee (after the run off the bike of course!). If it’s raining, one of the coaches will put a message on RTC’s main facebook page if ride is cancelled. If no message, the rides are on. The decision to cancel the Saturday rides is made with the safety of all members in mind, especially taking into account everyone’s riding ability

SAFETY FIRST – please obey all road rules, including stopping at red lights & stop signs. If you have a red light, and believe it won’t change because there are no cars waiting, this doesn’t give us the automatic right to cross the unbroken white line. If you are wearing RTC jerseys and cycling kits, you are representing our club so please ensure you obey all road rules!

RIDE A – (5am) – out through Petrie, Dayboro Rd, up over Mt Mee, back in the D’Aguilar Hwy, out to Toorbul, then home via Caboolture, Morayfield, Deception Bay.  Approx 140ks. If your program says more, then add on a trip out to Redcliffe. If your program says less, then drop the ride out to Toorbul

RIDE B (6am) – Strathpine, Albany Creek, Rode Rd roundabout, Beckett Rd, Linkfield Rd, Bracken Ridge, Sandgate, Redcliffe, approx 80ks

RIDE C (6am) – normal Sandgate loop, approx 60-70ks

RIDE D (6am) – Park Run group – out to Sandgate via the Redcliffe, run, then ride back via Redcliffe, approx 50ks (if you’re not running, then you could do a loop out around Shorncliffe, the golf course and back whilst the others are running!)

RIDE E (6am) – normal Sandgate loop, home via Elizabeth Ave. Approx 50-60ks   ***Note: this group is designed for those who are stepping up from the beginner group, not for faster riders***

SHORT / BEGINNER (shorter distance, ave speed 20+ k/hr) – Ed & Louise’s adventure. Approx 40-50ks   ***Note: speed will depend on slowest rider, group stays together***

JUNIORS – 2 groups – 1. the normal Sandgate loop (approx 60-70ks); 2. Winn Rd, Clear Mtn, back thru Albany Creek (approx 80ks)

NOTES RE: RIDES

  • Your Saturday ride is an LSD (long steady/slow distance) ride – it isn’t meant to be high intensity (unless you are required to do efforts or a fast TT)

OTHER STUFF

  • PRESENTATION NIGHT is fast approaching, possibly end of June. If you are interested in helping to organise the event, please email me on julesdillon@bigpond.com asap. It’s lots of fun to help out
  • BIKE SKILLS SESSION – for those new into riding on the road and/or those who want to improve their skills . . . Ed & I will be running a bike skills & drills session on Sat 29th March at 6am. For those wanting to join this session, this will be done as the start of your Sat morning ride
  • PORT MAC SUPPORTERS BUS – insufficient numbers for the supporter’s bus
  • GOOD LUCK to those racing Melbourne on Sunday (Carl, Fi, Judy (first time!), Daz & Jules) . . . to follow us online, go to www.ironmanlive.com
  • GOD LUCK to those racing the Twilight run on Sunday afternoon & any other races this weekend

Quote for the week

A dream doesn’t become reality thru magic; it takes sweat, determination & hard work . . .

Riding Update 7th March 2014

Good afternoon everyone

OK, after much anticipation . . . here it is . . . !!! I will do my best to get the next 2 weeks’ out as soon as possible . . . then after Melbourne IM I should be able to deliver this for you! I’ve received your feedback about the timeliness of this email so will take that onboard. If you have suggestions about where you would like the rides to go, please also send this to me at julesdillon@bigpond.com I have received feedback that a couple of people would like “different” rides – I love this feedback and would appreciate a bit more help with where you would like to go. So please help me to help you . . . I’m all ears!

Two rides again this week, leaving at 5am & 6am, so please be at Coffee Club North Lakes by 4.50 or 5.50am, ready to leave on time. For those new to the club, we then come back to Coffee Club & enjoy a social chat & coffee (after the run off the bike of course!). If it’s raining, I’ll put a message on facebook page if ride is cancelled.

SAFETY FIRST – please obey all road rules, including stopping at red lights & stop signs. The penalty for not obeying road rules is 20 push ups – which must be performed as soon as practical on the ride. I ask all ride leaders & everyone on the ride to take this seriously. The positive recognition for doing the right thing is we all enjoy our rides more and motorists are more pleasant towards us !!

RECOVERY / FLAT RIDES this week . . .

RIDE A – (5am) – out through Deception Bay, Morayfield, Caboolture, then (race pace) TT out to Toorbul and back.  Approx 100ks. If your program says more, then add on a trip out to Redcliffe / Sandgate  ***2 groups***

RIDE B – (6am) – for those wanting some hills, head out thru Strathpine, Old Northern Rd, then Hamilton Rd loop. Approx 80ks

RIDE C / RUN (6am) – out to Sandgate via Redcliffe, PARK RUN for those wishing to run, then ride back to North Lakes, approx 50-60ks  ***if you don’t wish to run, then you could do 2-3 loops around Sandgate / Shorncliffe whilst the others are running . . . or chill / coffee whilst they are running 🙂 Good luck to those running the 5k

RIDE D (6am) – normal Sandgate loop, home via Elizabeth Ave. Approx 50-60ks   ***Note: this group is designed for those who are stepping up from the beginner group, not for faster riders***

SHORT / BEGINNER (shorter distance, ave speed 20+ k/hr) – Ed & Louise’s adventure. Approx 40-50ks   ***Note: speed will depend on slowest rider, group stays together***

JUNIORS – normal Sandgate loop with speed work at Sandgate, approx 70ks

NOTES RE: RIDES

  • Your Saturday ride is an LSD (long steady/slow distance) ride – it isn’t meant to be high intensity (unless you are required to do efforts or a fast TT)
  • Mooloolaba athletes – you should be past your “hills” training now, and it  would also be worthwhile including some race pace TT efforts (eg, 20ks) in your long ride

OTHER STUFF

  • BIKE SKILLS SESSION – for those new into riding on the road and/or those who want to improve their skills . . . Ed & I will be running a bike skills & drills session on Sat 29th March at 6am. For those wanting to join this session, this will be done as the start of your Sat morning ride
  • MARY’s IM CHALLENGE – yes Mary, challenge accepted!!!! 🙂
  • SUNDAY SESSION – ride / swim / run at Caloundra – if its raining on Sunday morning, check facebook re the ride up. If light rain, the ride will still be on; if heavy rain, the “official” ride may be cancelled for safety reasons. Reminder to drop your swim / run gear at my place or Mary’s, or bring it with you & give to Mary on Sunday morning
  • PORT MAC SUPPORTERS BUS – it’s time to make a commitment if you are keen to join the supporter’s bus to Port Mac. I have accom booked – we had to book for 3 nights – so will be leaving Bris approx 6 or 7pm Fri evening 2nd May, returning to Bris approx mid afternoon on Mon 5th May. The cost will depend on the number of people who respond and commit to joining us for this fun weekend (last year’s bus crew are still talking about it!) . . . if you are keen to join us, please respond to julesdillon@bigpond.com or SMS me on 0497 078 543 BY SUNDAY 16TH MARCH.

Riding Update – 27th February 2014

Good evening everyone

Apologies about the previous email – let’s call it a “bkac” error (between the keyboard and the chair!!) . . . new email systems are fun to play with . . .

Anyway here’s the real riding update email . . .

Two rides again this week, leaving at 5am & 6am, so please be at Coffee Club North Lakes by 4.50 or 5.50am, ready to leave on time. For those new to the club, we then come back to Coffee Club & enjoy a social chat & coffee (after the run off the bike of course!)

SAFETY FIRST – please obey all road rules, including stopping at red lights & stop signs. The penalty for not obeying road rules is 20 push ups – which must be performed as soon as practical on the ride. I ask all ride leaders & everyone on the ride to take this seriously. The positive recognition for doing the right thing is we all enjoy our rides more and motorists are more pleasant towards us !!

RIDE A – (5am) – out Dayboro Rd, across Mt Samson Rd, back in Eatons Xing Rd, Bunya Rd, Hamilton Rd, Sandgate loop.  Approx 100ks. If your program says more, then add on a trip out to Nudgee Beach before heading down Sandgate Rd

RIDE B – (6am) – thru Strathpine, old Northern Rd to Rode Rd roundabout, Beckett Rd, Sandgate loop. Approx 80ks

RIDE C (6am) – normal Sandgate loop, approx 60-70ks

SHORT / BEGINNER (shorter distance, ave speed 20+ k/hr) – Ed & Louise’s adventure. Approx 40-50ks   ***Note: speed will depend on slowest rider, group stays together***

JUNIORS – 2 options for you – Sandgate loop if you’re racing Bribie (60ks), otherwise Hamilton Rd loop, approx 80ks

NOTES RE: RIDES

  • Your Saturday ride is an LSD (long steady/slow distance) ride – it isn’t meant to be high intensity (unless you are required to do efforts or a fast TT)
  • Bribie – if you’re racing Sunday & it is a goal race, then a short, easy ride is best for you on Saturday. If you’re racing Saturday, then don’t ride on Sat morning (you can still come for coffee though!)
  • Mooloolaba athletes – you should be past your “hills” training now, and it  would also be worthwhile including some race pace TT efforts (eg, 20ks) in your long ride

OTHER STUFF

  • CONGRATS to Yvonne for winning C2 grade at the criterium race at Lakeside last Saturday . . . awesome work!
  • GOOD LUCK to everyone racing this weekend, whether it be north, south, east or west, or over the Tasman . . . enjoy your race & we can’t wait to hear how you went
  • RECOVERY wishes go out this week to Jane Hermann, after having a coming together with a ute at Sandgate on Tuesday morning . . . Jane found out the hard way that it is best to go around a ute, not through it! Fortunately no broken bones but some pretty nasty bruising. Best wishes for a speedy recovery Jane
  • For those wanting to track the guys racing IM NZ, their racing numbers are: Dan Mc (390), Mark (581), Rob (660) Keith (854), Andrew (963) – you can go online to www.ironmanlive.com. Race hard guys!!

Dave McPhee – Dave appreciates the messages of support, he is still in hospital with a few issues & infections finding their way into his body. Once he gets over pneumonia & a chest infection, and as long as his pain is under control, he will be able to go home…..I guess that’s one way to get out of doing your “hard” training week Dave!!
