Faces of the 2015 ANUCC Committee – Jessica Laws
Jess, otherwise known as fixedgearmamma on the forums, is ANUCC’s Secretary and the club’s other cycling coach. Jess feels most at home on the track and loves to turn left. Many of you will have seen her at the Monday Criterium session and experienced her passion and commitment to ANUCC and cycling in general.

We’ve got a new sponsor!
Flex Out Physiotherapy is ANUCC’s newest sponsor. Located in Woden and open Monday to Friday, Kevin will sort out that niggle in your knee and twang in you back. Flex Out offers a wide range of services in sports, post-operative rehabilitation and prevention. They also have physio equipment for sale on site such as tapes, braces and compression gear. So live life comfortably and go see them today! See their flyer for ANUCC members further below.

Indoor Cycling Sessions
Through winter, ANUCC is looking to hold indoor cycling sessions. We’ve got a potential venue lined up, we’ve got some trainers on the way, so stay tuned as this is leading up to being the most exciting winter of cycling yet!

Cruise-y Sundays
In 2015, ANUCC will be holding a slightly slower bunch in conjunction with the usual Sunday bunch. This bunch is ideal for newcomers to the sport who have some road riding experience. The Cruise-y Sunday bunch will leave Wilbur’s CafĂ© at 7:30am on the last Sunday of each month. A reminder will be posted via Facebook, so stay on the lookout if you’re keen! The usual Sunday bunch will also be leaving at the same time.

New ANUCC Forum
We’ve got a new forum! The forum allows members to organise anything like rides and ideas and even suggest what to do for the weekend. There is definitely for room for expansion so sign up at anucc.forumotion.com.

Product review by the Soigneur
It’s getting dark and cold, so for those who commute (or are crazy enough to ride early) it’s all about being seen on the roads. One of the tools in your arsenal is a good rear light. I recently purchased the Lezyne Zectro rear light. This little baby puts out a blinding 20 lumens on the highest setting (7hr run time) and weighs only 47g! It has 6 separate flash settings (all from a simple on/off button), is USB rechargeable, has a tough water resistant design and comes with power level indicators on the side to let you know the battery level (it switches to a constant light when low to keep you going for about an hour). It also easily attaches to just about anything via a clip mount or rubber strap. It is a little on the pricey side (RRP $59.99) but is there a price on blindingly awesome?

Do you use the civic cycle loop?

Your help is needed for a study on cycling infrastructure, using the Civic Cycle Loop as a case study. You can help by completing a short survey about your views on the loop, including issues such as safety and convenience. 

Your assistance will improve understanding of how to provide for increased rates of cycling.

The benefits of increased cycling rates include reduced traffic congestion, a healthier population and associated economic benefits.

The Civic Cycle Loop is a new piece of cycle infrastructure in Canberra. The final stages, in Bunda street, are nearing completion. The first parts, in Marcus Clarke and Rudd streets, were completed in 2013.

For further information and to participate: www.surveymonkey.com/s/civiccyclesurvey
