The Petition for a No Stopping Zone on Beach Road Is up and Running!
Michael Forbes

All,

As some of you would be aware, I have spoken at a couple of council meetings to try to assist with getting a no stopping zone on Beach Rd in the Bayside council area. Currently, attempts by many people have failed, but voting by councillors is currently split 3-3. In order to try to sway this, we need to convince 1 councillor to vote for the no stopping zone.

Please find attached the petition to be sent to Bayside Council relating to a request to implement a no stopping zone on Beach Road from 6am -10am Saturday and Sunday. This is where I need your help.

In as little as three weeks the council will be meeting again on this issue and I would like to present a petition with thousands of signatures to sway the councillors voting against the no stopping zone with the power of democracy. I am calling on you to assist in whatever way you can with your own contacts – particularly in Bayside council area - to get them to sign the petition or (better still) to download a copy of the petition, fill it out with valid signatures and send them back to me. The details of how to do this is on the website. As an example, take along the petition to the next group ride or coffee. If you head to your local bike shop, take a couple of copies, ask them to get signatures and send them back too.

Although cyclist users of Beach Rd are an important component, we need to work really hard to get Bayside residents (cyclists and otherwise) to support the idea that the no stopping zone will assist with traffic flow on Beach Rd, and with changes to beachside parking will have no impact to beachside and retail access.

For those of you with websites, please feel free to create a link to my website to allow others to read of the petition aims and download copies. Here is the link: http://www.michaelforbes.org/cycle-safety/

Cheers,

Mike.

The above picture will be very sweet to all competing at Port Mac this year - "Weather here is perfect about 27 and no wind! Beautiful!"

The forecast is looking sensational and the above photo was taken just yesterday by MTC member Kel, who has headed up North to support the gang!

A stark contrast to last year!

In 2009 it rained and rained and RAINED in the days leading up to the Australian Ironman Championships.

All those that were present, both racing and spectating, had to negotiate a transition area full of water that rose right up to cover people's calf muscles!!

A big CONGRATULATIONS goes out to all the CBD Cycles athletes and friends who competed in Ironman China!

Two race reports are already in - with Tim Beardall racing on bravely despite stomach trouble (and still winning his age group, and qualifying for Kona!), as well as an amazing performance and WIN by David Bentley who after a thorough preparation went out and delivered a very satisfying race and result!

David B told us we could edit his report down - but with a race like that, only a full report is worthy.

Tri-Alliance Tips
The Triathlon Season is nearing a finish - what am I going to do?!


You will be in either one of two places.

  1. You have been training and racing for 11 months of the year and you are HANGING out for the last race so you can have a break from training and racing.

  2. You are new to the sport of Triathlon and have just realised you are hooked – but the season is now coming to an end!


In this article, we’ll help you cope in either situation.

Holly Aitken

Hi again Dave and Anthony,

On the weekend we had the Oceania Championships (ITU Junior U/19) held at Wellington, New Zealand - where it did live up to it's reputation to be very windy and cold! I ended up having another solid race taking a comfortable first place.

Read the Official Race Report HERE!

Just keeping you up to date and again to thank you for your much appreciated input to my success :)

Thanks again!

100km Otway Odyssey MTB Marathon 2010

Otway Odyssey 100km MTB Marathon
20th Feb 2010

The day started off at 5am with 3 sleepy eyed guys looking at each other, there was no need for an exchanging word, and we shook our heads as we ate breakfast.

100km Otway Odyssey MTB Marathon 2010

As 06:30 came around so did the smiles as everyone's nerves started to niggle as we and the girls ran around making last minute arrangements for the race. The weather forecast was for a top of 33 with northerly winds. This made the first 25km’s of the race interesting as the winds pounded competitors head on, throwing up dust as we struggled up the first 9km climb of 350m assent followed by a further 490m assent.

Our race plan was pretty simple, tempo, eat and drink. As it was Hayden’s first 100km race he felt a bit uneased starting so for back in the pack but had placed all his faith in his older brother, Grant, who had raced a number of MTB marathons and true to Grant’s word as the race went on we passed over 600 competitors.

100km Otway Odyssey MTB Marathon 2010

The heat took it toll on everyone with many riders struggling with cramps and over 200 riders pulling out of the race. Grant had pulled away from Hayden at the 55km mark as he struggled with cramping. Grant gained almost 6mins over the next 20km and caught up to CBD's Paul Randell before he ran out of water. Grant rode the next 30mins without water before reaching the feed zone however the damage seemed to be done.

With Grant and Paul also struggling from cramps, Paul dug deep and climbed the last 13km in a very respectable time putting some 5mins back between him and Grant. Hayden gained back 2 mins after also running out of water in the last 15km loop. A great result with three CBD riders in the top 50 of the 900 strong field with all the big MTB riders taking part.

Congratulations Holly Aitken!!

Hi Anthony and Dave,

On the weekend I competed in the Australian Championships (ITU Junior U/19) held at Sandringham. As a runner up in this event for the past two years, I was very pleased to come away with a strong win on Sunday. Consequently I have secured one of the three spots available for the Australian Junior Elite Team to compete in the Triathlon World Championships in Budapest this September.

Triathlon Australia Race Report

I particularly wish to acknowledge your support.

Thank you so much for your generosity as with the bikes, gear and ongoing support (which is immeasurable and directly tied to every success of any member of the VIS triathlon program) you are helping assist me in achieving my goals. I look forward to continuing this relationship.

Thanks again!

Tri Alliance Race Report - Race 5 Portarlington
Gatorade Triathlon / Brooks Fun Tri Series

Sunday 14 February 2010

Almost perfect weather conditions greeted us for Race 5 of the Gatorade and Brooks Fun Tri Series. Nice and cool, overcast and still calm water in the bay (free of jellies too!). Tri Alliance had approximately 50 athletes make the journey down the highway which is a fantastic effort and shows the commitment that we have in the squad.

The day started with the Brooks Fun Tri where we again had some very good results. The lack of room and slight hill at the mount and dismount line made for a very eventful morning where a number of athletes lost control of their bikes.

Tri-Alliance Portarlington 2010

Berit Barton continued her great form for the summer though as she finished a strong second place in her category. We also had a number of first time athletes who we officially welcome to the club, being Carly Laughton, Sabine Benthien, Michelle Donnison and Emma Baston. Well done girls and we hope you enjoyed your first experience!!

In the Gatorade race, we had some more very good results. The distances in Portarlington are longer than the normal sprint races and it is a more challenging course as well. The wind had picked up a bit around the back end of the bike course, making it an even tougher morning for all. Sarah "Rocket" Grove put in another big race to finish second in her category, and fastest Tri Alliance athlete overall; this also includes the fastest female bike split for the day, even beating the elite bike times!   Read more...

A much more successful day at Tas Champs

Amelia Pearson

I had a much more successful day at the Tasmanian Olympic Distance Championships and round 3 of the state series on Sunday. It was a wet day on a challenging course but I felt strong, fast and didn't experience any technical difficulties. I finished the 1500m swim, 40km cycle and 10km run in a touch over 2 hours and 14 minutes as first female and 10th overall.

I was also notified yesterday that I am a finalist in the
TIS Tasmanian Sports Awards, Tasmania's most prestigious sports awards, which will be announced on Friday 12th March.

Training for Ironman Australia (Port Mac) is going well and the next three weeks will be long and hard in the build up to my main race for the season.

Kind Regards,

Amelia Pearson

State Series 6 hour Enduro - Round 1 You Yangs. 4th solo male.


Enduro 6 Hour - Round 1 - You Yangs - Andrew Downie
Enduro 6 Hour - Round 1 - You Yangs - Andrew Downie

This was my first time on the flat section of the You Yangs, and I couldn’t believe how flat and fast it was. The course was an 11km loop of winding singletrack with some technical jumps and sandy corners. The most difficult aspect of the race was being unable to get out of the same, hunched position because of the nature of the course. My back needed a good stretch by the 4h mark, but I denied it the luxury! Anyway, I hit the gas from the start and kept it going and ended up 4th overall in solo male.

Big thanks to Dave, Anth and the crew at CBD Cycles and to Tim and Stephen Rowe (http://mtb-images.com.au/) for the images.

Epic Camp-Length of New Zealand-Rob Hill Epic Camp Wrap
- Rob Hill

Hi guys @ CBD Cycles,

I’m back from a thing called ‘Epic Camp – Length of New Zealand’ which is best explained as 27kms of open water and pool swimming, 2350kms of biking from the tip of the Nth Island to the bottom of the Sth Island, along with 107kms of running over 15 days – a total of 100 hours of training.

I was rapt to find that as we progressed into the second week of the trip I was getting fitter, stronger and holding together emotionally ok too. It shows what happens when you take care of yourself, get enough sleep, eat twice as much as you would during a normal day’s IM prep training, and importantly have everything laid on for you including masseurs, cooks and even a nightly laundry service!

A film crew followed us for the whole 2 weeks who are making a documentary to show on NZ TV – never thought I’d be a Reality TV star! To show you how small a country it is, we even made the prime time news one night...

Epic Camp-Length of New Zealand-Rob Hill

The Cervelo R3 was the perfect machine for the trip, handling the ultra steep NZ hills, the rough chip seal roads and the 50kph pace lines with ease. Got a heap of Powertap data as well which I’ll be analyzing when I get the chance – need to back off the training a bit now anyway!

Next up will be the Oz sprint champs. I’m certain the 15 days straight of 7hrs a day training will be the perfect lead up to a sizzling 750/20/5 (-;

(and if not I always have Port Mac IM as a Plan B . . .)

CBD Cycles Geelong 70.3
Sean Foster - 4th M35-39!


Hey Antho,

Had a bit of a go at Geelong on the weekend. Good test to see where things are at for Port Mac next month. Good swim, came out with the first swim bunch and some other CBD boys, Andrew Carey, Mark Ariens and the usual suspects.

Solid bike leg, some big packs, so there was a bit of a surging pace, which tends to tucker the legs a bit for the run. But all in all, the bike felt good and the Giant TT was humming along.

Run was ok, bit of a battle, but stuck it to myself as best i could. Beaten in a sprint finish for 3rd. Good training though mate, and am taking alot away to work on over the next month and a half.

CBD Cycles

Our team (MTC/Fluid Movements) faired pretty well, with 4 age wins,
2 seconds
and a few top 5's.

Thanks again for your great support and bike service

I'm really concerned . . .

Dear anthony,

I'm really concerned.

I've beaten cancer three times, and each time it was a fight. But I can write to you today as a survivor because my doctors caught the disease early.

I know firsthand, as many of you do, that an early diagnosis is often the difference between life and death. It's so simple, but everywhere I go I hear that people don't learn about their risks—because they're busy, because they're scared or because they just forget.

How many lives could be saved with a quick reminder—from someone we trust—urging us to make a simple appointment? Today—with your help—we're about to find out.

http://www.livestrongaction.org/campaigns/wcd/doctor

Why today?

February 4 is World Cancer Day—a global day of awareness created by the International Union Against Cancer. With cancer set to become the #1 killer in the world this year, the day brings us together to highlight the growing personal and economic impact of the disease. On this day it's critical that each organization—and each individual—share responsibility for sending a powerful message about cancer prevention.

Can I really make a difference?

Studies show that encouragement from someone close to you—your mum, your best friend, your co-worker in the next office—can have a decisive impact on your decision to take important actions for your health.

You could be the best advocate for your friends and family... if you're willing to take two minutes and nudge them to a quick step to protect their health.

http://www.livestrongaction.org/campaigns/wcd/doctor

I can't emphasize enough how important this simple action is—it's up to us to push everyone we know to talk to their doctors, know their risks and know what to do about it. It's so easy to do, but also so easy to forget. The LIVESTRONG community has always inspired others to fight back against cancer. World Cancer Day is no exception:

http://www.livestrongaction.org/campaigns/wcd/doctor

LIVESTRONG,

Doug Ulman and the LIVESTRONG Action team

CBD Cycles Gatorade Race 4 Elwood
Sean Foster - 2nd M35-39!


Hi anth,

Had a great hit out at Gatorade Elwood yesterday.

I was never the best of sprinters, but now i am turning 40 this year, its even harder to getup for a sprint race when not fully fit.

Came in second on a hot windy day in 35-39M. Will take some solos that i was one of the oldest dogs in that age yesterday.

Good thing is, just entered Geelong 70.3 and Port Mac as a 40-44age athlete! Hooray.

Thanks to you, Dave and the CBD team for your continued support of me and the FM squad. Love my trusty Giant TT Trinity.

I will keep you posted on how things go. Will take a Hawaii spot if lucky enough to get one.

IRONMAN WA, Busselton - Thank You - Jason Sim CBD Cycles - Ironman WA 09 - Jason Sim


Hi Anthony,


I am back at work and thankfully Busso IM is a distant memory!
(Port will be my revenge!)

While my race certainly didn't go to plan I have to thank you for the amazing support you gave me over there. I could not possibly sing your praises any louder, I have told absolutely everyone about you and the team.

Ironman is not an easy sport and help is always appreciated, your experience and re-assurance was invaluable.

CBD Cycles - Ironman WA 09 - Jason Sim

I have no doubt or question as to why CBD Cycles has been so successful for so many years.

Wearing the CBD gear makes you feel part of the family, the signs by the road, support from the crowd, photographer etc.., it truly made the
IMWA experience the best it could possibly be.

If you are ever in the market for a vehicle let me know, I only hope I can extend to you the generosity and support that you have given me.

Thanks again!

CBD Cycles - Ironman WA 09 - Jason Sim

Kindest regards,
