Many Hands Make Light WorkRoad Racing doesn’t happen without the hard work of many.

We are always seeking new Volunteer Superstars for our club events to continue

Each season we want to recruit and train up more volunteers, so that we can roster the roles around each week so that not the same people are each week. If you are new to a role, we will aim to offer advice and training where possible / as you learn we will have you working with an experienced person, until you are familiar with the task.

There are many roles that need to be filled including:

  • Marshalls
  • Lead / Sag Vehicles
  • Holders
  • Judges
  • Time keepers
  • Registrations
  • First Aid
  • Traffic Management – STMS
  • Result recorders
  • Handicapping
  • Report writing- please let us know if you are interested in writing a report about the racing to be posted on the BM web site after each meet

We are always looking for people wanting to be involved as

  • Race Directors / Organizers
  • Sub Committee Members for events
  • Timing

If you are willing to help out this season, please let the club secretary know  ( ) .

After we have a list of volunteers we can share the jobs around and post on the website each week with who is helping out.

The more volunteers we have, the easier and safer it is for everyone!

Final Chapter Perth to Adelaide–Nearly home

Day 15 Thursday 27th June Elliston to Arno Bay

Looking outside first thing this morning it appeared gloomy but as the sun was not yet up it was difficult to determine what the day was going to be like. Within half an hour it was raining – real rain. And within a very short period of time there were puddles forming around the campervan P1010876

Day 11 Sunday Nullabor to Nundroo This I thought was going to be a relatively easy day.perth 7 018 The time zone had changed again back at the border – another 45mins so the sun was well up when I hit the road. As you can see by looking at the 2 signposts – the one going to Nundroo says 143 km and the one going the other way from Nundroo to Nullarbor says 144 as the sign at Nundroo was right at the entrance unlike the one at Nullarbor which was about a km outside. I was

I must reiterate the fabulous truck drivers. I have only had 3 bad experiences out of 1000’s of trucks that have passed me. They give me plenty of room and the friendly waves will be something that I will have to stop doing when I finally get home.


Perth Western Australia–Week 1

Perth Western Australia–Week 1

Week 1 Day 1 – Bike has been cleaned and packed. Next clothes and drink bottles and shoes and helmet and. . .. .   so much stuff, so little space. But it did all fit and off to the airport in Palm Nth. William met me at home and we were on our way. Nerves had kicked in early in the morning.  What the …. was I doing?  I had done the training but I was always riding on roads that I knew or at least what the towns around me looked like and how the roads all linked together. I knew what the traffic is like in NZ.

At the airport – Bags checked through to Perth. Waiting upstairs in the glorious Manawatu sunshine. And a few of the girls, Averil, Christine and Possum showed up to see me off – much appreciated. Or perhaps they were there to make sure I didn’t chicken out. But as I went out the door (yes out the other door ) my nerves were forgotten about. Until I sat down and we waited and waited and waited. Passengers being driven from Masterton to Palmy were the cause of the delay. And I would get to Auckland on time but only just.

So on to the next plane and we were off. Can’t tell you what the movies were. It might turn up in one of the questions for quiz evening but I did watch an interesting doco on Mark Cavendish. I did let out an exclamation when the terrible crash at the end of a stage took him out.
