Come on club members, I know I am starting to sound like a broken record but we still need more people to step up and do the Traffic control course. We are still well short of the necessary numbers to start increasing the amount of races that the club will run.
It is unfair that a small number of people are expected to give up their race or riding time so others can race.
There is a course on this weekend but we have only 2 down to attend, if we don't get some more the course will not run.

To be held on Sunday November 22 starting from Edmund Rice College at the start of the 6.5km climb up the Illawarra Escarpment, the event features an average gradient of six per cent, with two 15 per cent challenges towards the end.
The event is being promoted by Activate Events and offers $250 cash to each of the Queen and King of the Mountain, age awards, medallions and an MTB KOM. It is open to riders from 12 years up (road) and open and masters (MTB), with teams also encouraged.
As well, entrants can help support the newly formed Fearless Outreach Foundation in support of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder by signing on to fund raise or donate to the cause.
In its inaugural year in 2014, the event attracted hundreds of entrants taking part in either the road based uphill 6.5km cycle climb or 5km fun run.
CNSW has sanctioned the event for both members and non-members. This ensures the event is professionally organised with insurances and services.
Entrants who are not members of CNSW will be required to pay $7 for a one day licence (normally $15).
CNSW CEO Phil Ayres said CNSW was pleased to support Activate Events in creating the new addition to its event calendar.
“Creating new opportunities for our members to participate in events is something we are continuing to stive for,” he said.
Event organiser Robert Battocchio said the 6.5km up hill road course was nothing short of spectacular, with an average 6.5 per cent gradiant.
“It will take competitors along the sealed scenic road that winds its way from the mountain base to finish on one of the most scenic lookouts on the South Coast, at Mount Keira Summit,” he said.
“The road is in excellent shape, wide, well sealed in most parts, and with full road closures offers a unique experience. The gradient is achievable with a few tough sections offering a worthy challenge.
“This is a tough ride but it’s relatively short and while it might set your legs on fire, the pain is temporary, but the sense of achievement when crossing the finishing line at the peak is forever.”
Mr Battocchio said the Mount Keira Challenge was designed to provide riders, both experienced to the novice with a tough hill climb race set in an accessible city location of Wollongong NSW.
“With full road closures and a spectacular summit finish, (overlooking the amazing Illawarra coastline), riders will have a small taste of an real uphill mountain climb. It’s a sprint to the summit, with a average six per cent gradient, the 6.5km road course winds its way from the base to the summit, and along the way a great vista and couple tough sections to test the lungs and legs…”

Road: 12-19 (U20), 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+ based on age on day
