October Newsletter

It’s been a while since the last newsletter, we’ll blame the Melbourne winter. It’s been long and cold and you have all been very brave and looked it in the eye, not deterred by the constant rain and wind. We’re glad to report that summer is creeping up on us, its almost here, time to ditch the multi layers of clothing and soak up some vitamin D.

Since the last newsletter our Tour de France jersey competition has been run and won and what tough competition it was. In the first week Ryan took the Sprint jersey in true bluesteel style (may have been due to the aeroness), big man Alex powered over all his rivals to clinch the KOM jersey. The tussle for the maillot jaune came down to the final stage but even after 3 weeks of competition Jen and Casey were tied on the same points, so for the first time in history there were 2 worthy winners of the maillot jaune! Congrats to these 4 for their superb efforts, your special Champion System jerseys are in production and will be here soon. 

Some Lead Out members enjoyed an information and ‘try it’ night at Kieser training in Brighton recently. The members were tested for their strength on various machines and muscle groups. It was a great evening and a lot was learnt – even if it was only bragging rights for the strongest quads!

The annual Great Ocean Rd training camp for Amy’s Gran Fondo was held on the weekend of 29th-31st August. 18 LeadOuters attended the camp this year and enjoyed perfect weather all weekend. Saturday included a long but enjoyable ride out to and up the Skenes Creek climb. The ride also included the breath taking climb to Beech Forrest, which snaked it’s way through sub-temperate rain-forest. The return trip included lunch at Wye River to conclude a long 150km day. The ride was absolutely magnificent and everyone rode strongly with fabulous form and class!

Sunday was shorter but no flatter with a nice handicapped climb up to Deans Marsh and out through the back roads towards Forrest. It was another perfect day and apart from a local dog taking a liking to Miranda’s back wheel and chasing her down the road it was most  enjoyable.

Two weeks later over a dozen Lead Out members then tackled the Amy’s Gran Fondo event. Armed with all the course knowledge and fit legs from the training camp, all members did exceptionally well and finished it with sensational times. A true testament to all the hard work they had put in in the months leading up to it. In true Lead Out style they all stayed together and made a weekend of it, sharing porridge pre-ride and champagne post-ride! Congratulations to everyone on their smashing rides.

Tip of The Month
Don’t forget to Slip-Slop-Slap

Summer is on it’s way and with it we will be throwing off the arm warmers, leg warmers, gloves, booties, rain jackets, snoods, ear warmers…….phew we wear a lot of clothes in winter!We know you will all be eager to work on those magnificent cycling tans but don’t forget that your skin needs some love and attention too. It’s a good idea to get into the habit of applying sunscreen every time you go out for a ride. Particularly to your face, tops of ears and arms. We might sound like your nagging Mum but it’s for your own good! And don’t worry you will still end up with a wicked knick tan just without the skin cancer to go with it.
