Yarra Glen, 24th October 2015

There’s just one race report this week from Yarra Glen but it was a full afternoon of racing.  Peter Gray also reports from Northern Cycling’s Jim Pritchard Memorial  Handicap.

Meanwhile, last weekend in Adelaide, four Eastern members – Roy Clark, Anna Davis, Chris Ellenby and Ron Stranks – were collecting an impressive haul of medals at the Australian Veterans Championships. Ron and Anna made the podium in all three disciplines in their age group – time trial, road race and criterium – and Anna finished 1st in all three. Congratulations to all four riders!

Arthurs Creek, 17th October 2014

Racing returned to Arthurs Creek last Saturday for the first time in quite a while. Arthurs Creek is an old favourite among the club’s road circuits that has suffered serious wear and tear to the road surface. A number of this week’s reports make appreciative mention of Nigel Kimber’s efforts to clearly mark damaged sections.
Elsewhere in the state, Eastern members were putting in some big efforts during the 100th Melbourne to Warrnambool Cycling Classic and the Bill Long Camperdown to Warrnambool Open Handicap (read the newsletter for images and reports).

Yarra Glen, 10th October 2015

Saturday afternoon at Yarra Glen was sunny and warm for the last in the winter series of A-grade teams races. Croydon Cycleworks riders took an emphatic clean sweep of the first five places and secured both the team and individual series trophies. In the other grades, the rigours of the course and the unaccustomed mugginess made for a race of attrition. Who would stay fresh the longest and prevail in the final push to the line? Read on to find out.

Casey Fields, 3rd October 2015

It may have been just another (windy) Saturday at Casey Fields, but there’s always a story to tell. Two regular correspondents sent reports this week.
A big event for the club that’s just around the corner is the Eastern Veterans Cycling Club Pinnacle Cycles Team Time Trial in Seymour on 31 October. Entries close at 9 pm on 21 October. Full details in this newsletter.

And best wishes to any club members who may be lining up this Sunday for Melbourne’s biggest mass-participation ride of the year. Yes, it’s Around the Bay time again.

Eildon – Club Championships, 26th September 2015

Again Eildon turned it on for us – blue skies, little wind and less traffic.

Last Saturday the age-based Club Road Championships were run at Eildon. Riding the champs is a rare chance to measure yourself against other riders in your age group, rather than in grades decided by the handicapper. There were some ding-dong battles, as this week’s race reports testify. Thanks to all our correspondents.

And thanks to Peter Gray for the image of the week, which serves to remind us why we ride.
