Ballarat Road National Championship Big Day Trip.
Sunday 7 January - the day that elite woman and elite men decide who will be Australia's champion for 2018. You could be there. We're arranging a day trip - we hope to get a bus so we can share the costs and travel together. Are you interested? Of course you are!
Get in touch with Tony Egan, as he's kindly agreed to pull the details together for us. Have a chat at any of the club events. Or do the electronic communication thing to: tony.egan@mail.com

This is the day after the club championship road race so we will be presenting medals for TT, Crit and road race champs of each grade at the BBQ.

Race cancellation 
We've all been looking forward to the Bellbridge Classic. Unfortunately the race on 6 November has had to be cancelled. Recent rain damage of the roads has made a couple of places quite dangerous, especially one spot on the descent north from Talgarno Gap. Apologies to all!



Spring racing, & beyond.

We're very happy to announce that AWPCC will be running a series of criterium races at the DECA driver training centre, 45 Albertson Rd, Barnawartha. That's in the Logic Centre.

Start date: Wednesday 12 October, fortnightly. Times to be announced. Entry of $5.Our plan is to have a number of races: juniors first, then as many races as fit the numbers who register. We aim to have A, B & C grades. It would be great to have women's-specific racing too. For those who are new to racing, we will have experienced riders to guide and inform.
Keep an eye on your inbox, and on the club's media, for final details.
There's also the summer tradition of velodrome riding about to start, too. See below for more track news.
A very brief advance warning: in early December we're planning a relaxed AWPCC Christmas party and club champion presentations. Probably in a park, near a BBQ, with all invited.

Velodrome news Great news - junior track this year is going to be run by Greg Featonby. Feato is a life member of the club for good reason. He has an immense amount of knowledge to pass on, as well as great love for the sport of cycling.
The relevant information: Monday afternoon, from 5:30pm, Pearsall St Lavington, starting Monday 7 November.
Senior training: join the crew training each Tuesday evening, 6:30pm-8:30pm at the velodrome.
