Wagga Cycling Club would like to ask for the assistance

The Wagga Cycling Club would like to ask for the assistance of the Club members in providing volunteers for our Wagga Classic event on Saturday 2nd July and Saturday 3rd July 2016 as noted below.

Saturday 2nd July – 11am – 4.30pm – marshals required for Wagga CBD criterium course. Duties include monitoring course, assisting parked vehicles off course, ensuring general public do not alter road closures, assisting pedestrians across course when safe, etc.
Sunday 3rd July – 8.30am – midday – lead and follow car drivers required for 100km road race. Starts Gap Road – to Coolamon and return to finish in Harris Road. Drivers will need to supply their own vehicles.

Unfortunately, we are short on the ground because many of our members are competing in the Classic or travelling with junior cyclists to away competitions.

Anyone who is interested in assisting should email Wagga Cycling Club directly at ea@waggacyclingclub.com

MTB WAGGA END OF YEAR FESTIVITIES – ALL WELCOME

TUESDAY 15th DECEMBER – Christmas drinks and BBQ after Round 4 of the Daylight Savings Series. Hang around after the event for a cold beer or soft drink and a BBQ (alternative food if there is a fire ban in place). Food and drinks will be covered by the club.

 
SUNDAY 20th DECEMBER – The annual Christmas Sunday social ride. Last year’s “magical mystery tour” of Wagga trails and Pomi was a hit, so if you want to ride some different trails, join in with one of the options below. This year the long ride will leave at 6am from the top of Red Hill Rd on the northern side. We will ride a selection of Willan’s Hill trails and then hit the river trail, in time to arrive at the Pomi Shelter by 7:30am. Here we will join any other riders for a good hour or more of riding along the Pomi Christmas Loop. Slower or less confident groups can do an alternate route if they want to and we will all meet back at the shelter at around 8:45am. Then it’s off to grab a coffee at a location to be decided on the day. If it’s warm, we may even swing past the beach for a quick dip. Remember, all riders are welcome. Meet at 6am for the long ride starting on Red Hill Road, or at 7:30am for a number of options at Pomi.

 
TUESDAY 22nd DECEMBER – Annual Christmas Stubby ride with the roadies. The “dirty stubbie” option is back this year, so for those not wanting to do the Gregadoo Loop on a road bike, join the mountain bikers and discover some of the off road trails around the Lake Albert area. It will mostly be flat, non technical and at an easy pace. All rides (road and MTB) leave from Apex Park, Lake Albert at 6am, returning by 7am for a drink and egg and bacon rolls. Cost is a $5 donation and this year all money raised is going to the Wagga Cycling Club, to help fund some more replacement track bikes.

 
We hope to see you at one or more of our end of year gatherings.
