Twin Towns Triathlon Club Race No. 12
What started off as a potentially rainy day, quickly passed into a glorious day on the coast. One member who decided that Saturday was the day he would ride down to the club, only to ride straight into a down pour. Another member not wanting to get his bike wet, decided to sleep in and then park his motor bike in the middle of the kids bike course!.
Nudging on nearly 80 competitors, and only one mishap when Danny fell from grace and slipped on the bitumen ( I have to report that along with a damaged ego, and superficial grazing most importantly – his bike is fine ). This lead to Dr (Paul Woodger) Bike discussing the importance of wet weather/road riding. STAY OFF THE WHITE PAINTED STUFF- its slippery, slow down and ensure that your approach speed to prior to any corner is sufficient to allow you to travel through without the need for any braking, and then after passing through safely, accelerate. In regard to braking he discussed the need to inspect your brake pads. If the ‘cuts’ in the pads are no longer visible, its time to replace them.
The planning for the Christmas Party is almost done, with only one (1) seat remaining on the bus. So if you quick, contact Julie West and claim your spot. No doubt she will have standby list for late changes. Please remember to bring your payment of $35 next week to confirm your booking.
The last uniform order has been placed and there are still some accounts outstanding from the initial order. Please finalise your payment next week to either Julie Bloor or Julie West.
