Peloton Sports/TORC Weekly News
Amy's Gran Fondo
In case you haven't heard we had a clean sweep at amy's gran fondo on the weekend. At the finish were Paul Eaton, Vaughan, Deb, Julian, Tony harlick, John Horsborogh, Ed and Simon S. They have all qualified for next year's world champs! Notable were John H. winning his category (and looking very fresh on the front of a bunch into the finish!), and Deb 5th in her age group. Apologies if there were other members we have missed... well done everyone!

A Glorious Day to Ride
The sun usually rises before I do now, the thermometer is above 10 degrees early morning so it is time to enjoy our glorius spring sunshine. And on Sunday many of us did.

Tony H, Simon S, Deb Deb, Vaughn and others rode Amy’s Gran Fondo. They ride it in reverse now - there is a whopping big hill after 2 kilometres so maybe the timing will be a little slower now. Haven’t heard from anybody so no doubt all went well (update: yes they did as per news flash above!). All we know is that Tony H called it a ‘very tough ride’. Well no point in driving all the way to Lorne for a Cafe Cruise to the local. Merry and I declined this year but maybe next year we will reconsider.

Some raced at West Head too though I am not sure how that went.

Meanwhile we had a few dozen doing Maraylya (one of those M rides out towards Pitt Town). Rolling out together Rowdy set a solid pace up the hill at Galston Gorge. From there the good split worked wonders and we had a dozen or so in the second - more classy bunch. Great to ride alongside Chris B, Cathie D, PD, Andrew N, Patsy et al. It was also great to catch up with Mary B and Andrew S. I haven’t seen much of them recently but their form is still there.

My new bike frame looks a treat - and rides as well as the old one. All I need to do now is get the engine ticking over better.

One way to do that - see you out on the road.


Hip Hip Hooray to Amy's Gran Fondo!
