From the Race Committee
Old Federal Highway
A reminder that, as this weekend’s race is in NSW and the club will be incurring the cost of professional traffic controllers, the number of registration will need to meet the minimum of 30 for the race to go ahead. A decision will be made by Friday lunchtime if there are sufficient numbers to proceed.
Events for the rest of the year have been loaded into RMS. We are looking for Race Directors and officials to assist. Please contact the Race Committee (email@example.com) if you have a preferred event to officiate.
From the Committee
If you have any friends or family who might be interested in a trial ride with the Masters, there is the option available for up to two trial rides.
There is a trial ride form on the club website https://capitalregionmasterscyclingclub.org.au/racing-with-us/crmcc-trial-ride-form/ which they can use to apply for a trial ride.
Active Travel Plan
The ACT Government has released a draft Active Travel Plan, which outlines a pathway to boost active travel in the territory. It includes an interactive cycling infrastructure map where you as members of the cycling community can make suggestions directly. There are several ways for you to have a say on the plan before 24 August 2022.
The Club is considering making a submission that will focus on enhancing the riding experience for those who ride to races, and the use of end of trip facilities.
