Tour week this year kicks off in Albany with the Albany Cycling Club hosting a Team Time Trial on Nov 5th and The Amazing Albany Bike Ride (TAABR) on the following day. Join us and some special guests in Albany and in the week that follows as we take the long (and leisurely) way to Margaret River where the race itself will begin on Nov 11th. Sincere thanks to the City of Albany for it’s support of TAABR and Breakaway WA, we can’t wait to visit Cycle City! Register to ride TAABR or Breakaway WA.
This year The Tour heads back to its original home of Cowaramup for Stage 1 and already the locals are hard at work on all the small things that make an event special. Pictured are the bases for the 2016 Group Trophies that are currently being made at the Cowaramup Men’s Shed by local craftsmen Peter Clews. The selected wood is Marri and its trademark gum veins combined with hand carving will ensure that each trophy is a unique work of art. In the immortal words of Darryl Kerrigan “That’s going straight to the pool room”
