We are Port Macquarie Cycle Club. We are young, we are old; we are fast, we are not so fast; we race, we watch and we chip in. Whatever we do we give it our all, and we do it because we love it. This is how we roll – join us.

June Rec Ride Report
With plenty of things on this today (including running, running & riding and plenty of family stuff) our numbers were small but the enthusiasm why high. We even had a visitor ride with us from the Goldie. The stand out rider today was a bloke who had his 83rd birthday during the week. Yep you guessed it - Peter Brown. It was the best riding I've seen Pete do since we commenced the rec rides last year. Well done old timer!!
After our Paris Roubaix ride (yes it was a bit bumpy), we enjoyed a yarn and refreshments at Ricardos Tomatoes. See you next month when we saddle up again on 23 July - so get it into your diary now!

Today we were joined by a strong contingent from Manning Valley Cycle Club, despite their club having a number of members away. A Handicap race was held over 32km, being four laps of an 8km course.

Four junior riders raced over a two-lap course with Jasper Sumsky (PMCC) taking the win.

In the seniors race (32km) the Limit group stayed away with the win going to Todd Atkinson (MVCC), 2nd Will Oram (PMCC) and 3rd Belinda Smith (PMCC).

Thank you to MVCC club riders and families and to chief commissaire Simon Andrews assisted by Murray Sallaway & Simon Bank. The traffic was well controlled today with assessments taking place for some of the new recruits, thanks team! (Phil Hawes, Louise Grigg, Alisha Bank, Jan Connors, Rick Hodges, Bree McDonald and Zoe Dowsett). As always a big thanks to Joan Hawes for sign-on and canteen.

Next week is the Grand Départ of the 2017 Tour de Port, with an Individual Time Trial. Sign on by 2pm with first rider off at 2.30pm.
