Apologies to create yet another post on Amy's Ride, but just wanted to make sure we get a couple of messages out there, and didn't want them to get lost amongst all those other threads!
I would encourage everyone who does not have an Amy's Ride jersey, to wear your CVSA jersey to this ride.
It would be fantastic if we could meet at a point near the start, and ride in as a group. I know that we have mixed speeds in our group, but if we assemble to one side of the start line, it will allow those who want to ride faster from other groups, to pass us on our right. We won't stay together for the whole ride of course, but if we could roll out as a team, it would look mighty impressive.
There'll be a few of us carrying cameras, and I would love to get some group photos, as well as the customary riding photos, so please bring your best smiles along! Be great to send some through for Ashleigh as well, so he can see the jerseys he worked so hard to get, gathered and representing CVSA!
One of the members raised an excellent point, what if when we are gathered as a group, someone from the media wants to talk to us about CVSA, what it's all about, aims and objectives etc. If this does happen, can we please refer them on to Jim Vlahakis who will act as our spokesperson for the day. This will ensure a constant message being given to the media.
We are the cycling team of Cancer Voices SA, and by riding for the team and wearing the CVSA jersey, we are doing our bit to "raise a voice for those affected by cancer". We are a growing group with over 215 registered members of the cycling team, and approximately 90 registered to ride the TDU MCCT as part of Team CVSA.
Looking forward to catching up with everyone doing the 100km Sunday morning at the start line, and the rest of you doing the other distance options on offer, hope to see you at the end for a photo!
Stay safe my friends, and keep the rubber side down!
