Canberra to Bombala Rail Trail

Andrew Carter is actively involved in the proposal to convert the old disused railway corridor from Canberra to Bombala to a Rail Trail. He is trying to get signatures on a petition to the local NSW member to promote the idea (see below). Continue reading “Canberra to Bombala Rail Trail”

Marshal scheduling for the winter season

Members, in the past we’ve relied upon the process of calling for members to volunteer as marshal’s for races. This has proven difficult to manage for the race committee in ensuring we have sufficient marshals especially for our road races and more often than not the task of marshaling has been covered by just a few individuals. Continue reading “Marshal scheduling for the winter season”

From the desk of the handicapper


A special mention must go Seymour Savell-Boss who stood proudly on the third step of an imaginary podium after last Tuesday’s A grade criterium. Thirteen months ago he was languishing at the bottom of D grade, but after a year of hard work has claimed a fantastic result–and should serve as an inspiration to us all about the value of commitment and hard work.

2017 AGM

Dear Members

I encourage as many members as possible to attend the Clubs Annual General meeting (AGM).

As the new(ish) President I’d really appreciate members openly debating ideas for the direction of Club in 2017/18 and the AGM represents your best opportunity to participate in the shaping of the club for the future. If you’ve ever wanted to design a new race course, organise more club training rides, work with the ACT Government in providing better cycling facilities or even design the next club jersey, then the AGM is where you can put your hand up and contribute. There’s also the potential to put up your hand to join the Committee of the Club if you want to long lasting impact on the direction of the Club.

ACT Vets is a club run by club members for the benefit of club members and the more members that help in shaping the direction of the club then the better we’ll all be. Whilst we are supremely fit cyclists, the AGM will be concluded by complimentary beer and wine for those attending. Yes free beer….a cyclist’s 2nd best friend (right after coffee).

The AGM is on 7:30 Monday 3rd April 2017 at the Weston Club, 1 Liardet St Weston

2017 Stromlo Club Championship

The Vets Criterium Championships is always an interesting affair with riders pitted against others by age groupings and not grades. This results in some races seeing E graders up against A graders and sometimes the odd upset with a lower grade rider able to out manoeuvre their higher graded opponent. Regardless, it’s great experience for everyone competing as you get to race against riders who you wouldn’t normally ride against. Continue reading “2017 Stromlo Club Championship”

Race report

Stromlo – 14th March

Unfortunately, just as the racing was about to start, the heavens opened and the race was washed out.

Narrabundah Track Racing – 15th March

Attendance for Session 19 of the track racing season was similar to last week. Fourteen riders attended, split equally between A and B grades. The weather was quite cool and overcast. Fortunately the rain held off. The wind was strong and appeared to swirl around the velodrome – in the opposite direction to riders, naturally! Continue reading “Race report”
