Paul Woodger won the monthly handicap prize of $100, this is drawn from the four top contenders for the month, Brendan Brookes, Dave De Closey, Sharyn Klein and Paul. We done everyone.
Random draws went to Trevor Lawes, Roger Campbell, Jenny Scaysbrook, Liz Wall, Freya Curnow, Warren Copping, Guy Daveron, Peter Harrington, Richard Mourant and Michael (sorry did not get the surname).
Paul Dr. Bike talked about maintenance on the bike, of course advising that when we hear those funny, concerning noises to take the bike in for a service as it could be many reasons from tyres rubbing on the brake pads to noises in the cassette. All these problems can be fixed quickly and easily by your local bike shop.
Paul also gave a demonstration of emergency stopping. He did suggest very strongly that whenever we are riding in a situation where fast reaction times may be necessary that we should ride in the safe position with our hands on the drops and able to use the brakes quickly. Never ever ride on your tri bars through a roundabout. Safety first and always.
