The Rockingham Tweed Run is a metropolitan bicycle ride with a bit of style. We take to the streets in our most vintage get ups, and cycle through the Rockinghams city’s iconic landmarks. Along the way, we stop for a hydration stop and snack stop, we will end at the Mini Bar on the foreshore. Any bicycle is acceptable on the Tweed Run, but classic vintage bicycles are encouraged. Some effort to recreate the spirit of a bygone era is always appreciated. So wipe that dust off the old bicycle at your grandads house and hit the Op-Shop because you could win yourself some awesome prizes from KD Cycles.

KD Cycles rider Colin Rose has been very busy with racing lately. After completing the  World UCI Grand Fondo, this is what colin had to say.

The week had finally arrived which all started 12 months earlier when I qualified for the world masters road championships at Amy’s Gran Fondo. The first race was the Individual Time Trial held on Rottnest The morning started with clear skies and a steady breeze. In stark contrast to the day before. before the course was closed I went out and rode the course one more time and then came back to the unit and out my feet up. I paid to have a trainer available one hour before my scheduled start time. Once I was one the trainer to warm up I zoned out to every thing around me. When i was in the starting box I was warmed up and ready  to go. Within the 1st km my heart rate was up to about 172 bpm and stayed up there for the whole ride, at the end i had an average of 174bpm and a maximum of 179. Rottnest is a hard and technical course open to the wind. Felt good and strong through the ride and gave it my all, but on the day was not good enough for a medal finishing in 6th place 39sec off the gold medal.

With the TT done and dusted I was feeling a bit low, the following day, but once on the bike I actually felt good in the legs and my thoughts turned to the RR. Sunday Morning arrived slightly overcast and cool. My race plan was to just sit in and make a move on the last lap. Going out along the freeway two riders went off the front. I saw them go and had an opportunity to go but was too early in my plan. the first time up the zig zag I was in a good position the bunch started to split and i was still with the main field going down hill out of Kalamunda i was towards the back and struggled due to my position in the field, but managed to get through it. I had something to eat and moved towards the front the second time up the zig zag. I was feeling good and coming through the feed zone Andrew Simpson was feeding me passed me up my bidon. Coming into Mundaring I had a go and got away and was soon joined by a frenchman and then a brit and south  african. the main field saw the danger and closed it down. The two escapees were finally caught and coming into the zig zag the field was together. I missed the move and tried to go. then the counter moves came but didn’t have the legs to go with them. the bunch was getting smaller with every km. Coming into the sprint it was just a matter of hanging on to a wheel and finish as far up the field as i could. In the end I was happy with the way I rode and had nothing left at the finish.

July Newsletter 

The Cape to Cape MTB was first held in 2008 to a field that only reached about 100 participants. Nine years later it now holds the title as Australasia’s biggest MTB multi-stage endurance race with our biggest field going over 1300 competitors last year.

From the outset we saw this event as unique, “a ride not a race”! But over the years more and more people turned up to “race”, not just at the pointy end of the field but back in the middle and against their mates and also strangers. These strangers soon became friends and many people return each year not just for the ride or race but to catch up with old friends both on the course and at the finish lines.

Along the way we have had some hiccups, including losing a few riders to only find them stuck at a local winery, but we have been prepared to have a go and are working hard to improve the experience and the course year after year – most importantly always trying to maintain the friendly, fun vibe that has become the trademark of the Cape to Cape MTB.

This event has been a very big event for Western Australian MTB riders and KD Cycles is happy to support this very well run race, we hope to see you there!

2016 Stages 

Stage 1 is rather short in overall distance, but features plenty of steep climbs, lots of drifty loose soil, a few eye-wateringly fast descents and of course the infamous section along Deepdene Beach!  Each year the alignment for this stage does not change much but the conditions change a lot year to year!

Stage 2 starts out by taking in the fast loamy singletrack under the Karri trees in Boranup Forest, then negotiates a series of rocky limestone outcrops overlooking the coast before the elevation flattens off and the course heads inland through a number of the region’s famous vineyards.  Each year we add in a new section or two to keep things interesting for all riders!

Stage 3 is chock full of sweet singletrack! The start is a rollout down the main street of the Margaret River, which is a great opportunity to experience the scale of the event. This is then followed by all the best singletrack in the Margaret River area, which offers enough cornering grip and flow to get any mountain bike rider’s excitement levels locked to max!  This stage alignment gets a full makeover year to year as we keep the Special Stage truly special!

Stage 4 starts off by passing farmland, then takes in the amazing technical singletrack through Middle Earth. The course then traverses flat gravel roads, farmland and some tarmac as it heads north towards Cape Naturaliste, before culminating with the rocky singletrack around the Dunsborough Country Club’s golf course.  We add a few new sections year to year!
