Audax WA Newsletter - November 2021
Welcome to Australia’s Long Distance Cycling Club

Date: 25-11-2021

Welcome to the November issue of Audax WA's Newsletter. Read on for a wrap up of the last two months & the Audax year 2020/21 as a whole, and a look at the year coming.

President's Update

Hi All ,

As we leave a riding season behind and pedal into a new year I would like to thank the WA Committee for the time and effort they have put in keeping our region running smoothly. 

In particular, a big thank you goes to Julie who has produced our newsletters and provided social media support. Sadly Julie has left the Committee but will continue for another few months helping with the social media. If anyone has an interest in becoming involved in this role, please get in touch. 

Secondly, a huge thank you goes to our ROs who spend hours creating new and exciting routes for us to ride! If anyone is interested in being an RO, please get in touch with me ASAP @ wa.president@audax.org.au as we have an RO information night coming up in the near future. 

A big thank you also goes to Ed for updating our permanent rides. Thanks Ed. The new list is certainly worth a look!

This coming season is also the year of the “ PAP 1200 ” and planing is well under way. To help make this historical ride run smoothly the PAP Committee needs members to put their hands up and volunteer. Any little bit of help you can give will assist to make this ride a marque event.

Save the date - With Christmas knocking on our door the Committee has planned for an end of year/Christmas 50km social ride on 12 December finishing @ the famous Alfred kitchen for a burger. If you don't feel like a ride just turn up for a burger. Watch your inbox for more details closer to the date.

And finally, I would like to thank all the active members of Audax WA.  We wouldn't have a club without you turning up for rides.

Well that's all ... keep peddling and I hope to see you on a ride soon.

Gary
WA Regional President

PAP 2022 - Perth - Augusta Perth

 

As mentioned by the President, planning is now underway for the semi-supported 1200km PAP 2022 to start on 10 October 2022.  The route next year will be Perth-Augusta-Perth providing an alternate route from previous versions of our feature ride. If you wish to register your interest to participate as a rider or a volunteer, then please complete this form.  Information as it becomes available will be posted to the feature ride webpage.  Also check out the PerthAugustaPerth Facebook group.
