Good evening all, I'm heading home to Port Macquarie for a few weeks over xmas. Long story short - I need to swap saddles on my road bike & am after a recommendation for where to go for a bike fit/saddle fit as I couldn't get in with my normal bike fit guy before coming home. Thanks ...

Podium Photos from this Week's Racing

Good turn out for racing this week despite the marginal weather which prompted getting the juniors racing off earlier than originally planned. The Juniors have been split into 3 divisions to improve the racing experience for all. Oscar Jakeman took first in Divison 1 over Lachlan McDonald. In divisioin 2 it was Jake Nelson in first over Jazz Jakeman and Madalynne Farah-Hall and in division 3 James Cockshutt took first over Charlie Hamerlok then Zac Downing followed by Meredith Davies and Mia Downing.

Great to see Christy Jakeman take the top step of the podium in her first race in the Women's grade over Vania Santos who was second.

In C grade it was Scott Heslop, Craig Robinson then Josh Magennis and in D grade we had Mal Malcolm Downing over Ben Heslop and then Jules Mackin.

A grade was down to a supercharged Brandon Conway who took the top step over Simon Bank and in B grade we had Steve Heslop, David O'Brien and Stuart Jakeman.

Well done to all riders and thanks to all officials.

Thereabouts 3: Discovering Colombia - Port Macquarie Screening

December 15, 2016, 7:00pm - December 15, 2016, 9:00pm

Gus and Lachy explore the amazing riding and the cycling culture of Colombia that has produced some of the finest road cyclists of the past and the modern era. It also progresses their own personal story of how the two brothers have come back to race professional together and how Lachy is now taking the step back up to the World Tour. - - - The screening will be held in Room 2064 at the Charles Sturt University's Port Macquarie Campus, Major Innes Drive. Enter via the main gate opposite Coles. Arrive at 7pm and we’ll commence the screening at 7.30pm. Bring your own snacks and drinks. Tickets are $10 per adult (18 or over) at the door, free for children, with 100% of proceeds going to Qhubeka. Thereabouts have partnered with Qhubeka (www.qhubeka.org) with ticket sales from all screenings of Thereabouts 3 going to support this worthwhile cause. This is a pre-release screening of a 'test cut' of the final feature film, so Port Macquarie Cycle Club members will be among the first in the world to see it. - - - Watch the trailer here: www.kickstarter.com/projects/2138598796/thereabouts-3-discovering-colombia

Apologies to Paul Hamerlok and Wade Buchan. I'm out on the bike this morning and realised I didn't thank them for clearing the track last night for the race. Thanks Hammer & Wade. 👍 ...

Hi All,
Our last Recreation Ride for 2016 is upon us. It will be our 8th ride this year after having our first one in May.
The ride details are shown below. Basically we start and end at the new Sterling Green Cafe (out near the donut) which is run by one of our sponsors, Hastings Co-op.
Looking forward to seeing you there this Sunday morning for an 8am ride start. Where else would you rather be on a Sunday morning than riding the bike !!

Regards
