BICISPORT MEMBER NEWS
Speedy Recovery - John Elderfield had one almighty rubber side up whilst riding a motorbike in Bangkok and thankfully survived to tell the tale. Get well soon John.
Husky Triathlon @ 24 Feb - Stewart Campbell took another team win at the Husky Tri
Wisemans Loop Ride Report @ 24 Feb - rain & heavy winds during the previous week saw a greatly reduced BiciSport peloton complete the full 115k into Calga. Conditions were surprisingly agreeable on the day, with the 9k of St Albans gravel more like concrete (thanks to all the rain). All agreed that the seemingly “flat” section of road from Wisemans Ferry to Spencer was much more taxing than first thought, and the final push from Peats Ridge into Calga hurt as required. Thanks to Paul Craft (RAW Track) for making it all happen.
