Newsletter – November 29, 2018

As the end of 2018 approaches, its a good time to contemplate the remaining rides for the year. We are two weeks out from the AudaXmas party so book now. Enjoy the pictures from Andrew’s PAP ride report, and maybe contemplate some bike/life zen-ness. You’ll possibly have noticed it’s hot outside, so make sure you take the necessary precautions if you are out in the heat. And be safe out there.

2018 AudaXmas Party – December 15

Croquet!! Tuition provided for the very few who haven’t mastered the mallet yet. All equipment supplied but please wear flat shoes. Channel your inner Alice but best leave the flamingo at home.

Picture yourself here… give Jeff a call and grab a spot on the court.

And to really get you in the mood, here’s a handy guide to croquet jargon to ensure you sound like you know what you are doing.

We still need your help

In order to keep the club wheels spinning we have a need to find people for the following activities. Don’t be shy, step right up.

Treasurer

The Queensland Treasurer is going on leave next year and we need a caretaker while he is away. Anyone interested please contact Brian Hornby (0418 711 417) or Kym Raffelt (0431 471 839). Now I’ve had a discussion with Kym with a view to taking this on, however I lack the bandwidth to also do the newsletter. And so…

Newsletter

Get in touch to find out whats involved. It’s enjoyable, doesn’t take a lot of time, it isn’t rocket science and I need to find a new owner to take this on in 2019 in any case owing to other commitments.

Bicycle Philosophy

Reading

I often joke that in Queensland we have two seasons, hot and really hot. The wise cyclist will understand the implications of being out in the sun all day and always take the necessary precautions; appropriate clothing, sunscreen, hydration and even taking time out in the hottest part of the day.

There’s a reason the seasoned riders all have long sleeved jerseys. Those less experienced may suffer sunburn as a minimum and heatstroke at the other end of the spectrum. Some, like me are especially susceptible to the heat and find the power rapidly drains from the legs as the temperature rises.

Its a potentially serious concern, but with some precautions, your day out can be a lot better than had you taken no measures at all.
