                                      Reports 2010

Presidents Report 2009-2010

It gives me much pleasure to report to our members on our significant achievements over
the 12 months to 30 June, 2010.

Firstly I would like to thank my colleagues on the Executive Committee of the Club. This is a
team who has worked diligently in their various roles to assist in providing the direction and
support to the members of the club in a very professional manner. Also a special thanks to
those of you who have supported the club in providing logistical support for our many
special events and behind the scenes support in making things happen.


It would be almost impossible to find another cycling club that provides ongoing events
whether it be regular training rides, at least 4 or 5 rides per week, and additional special
events. An example of these is listed as follows:

July                   Uncle Fester Birthday Ride
September              Hunter Classic
                       Goulburn Citi Pengana Classic Charity Ride
October                World Masters Championships
November               “Reverse” Hunter ride (Hunter Valley to Turramurra)
December               Uncle Fester Month of Madness Challenge/Nepcam
                       Christmas Function at Pa Pa’s

January                Uncle Fester Month of Madness/Nepcam
                       Roadies Day Off
                       TORC MTBA National Championships
February               Tour de Batehaven
March                  Snowy Mountains Tour
May/June               Tour of Tuscany, Umbria, Lombardy

Training rides are planned and prepared by the club in a structured way to ensure that as
many members participating in these rides maximize the benefits of training in a club

Managing risks

As the club’s membership grows all members need to be cognisant of their responsibilities
when riding. The road is to be shared by all users and therefore safety is of paramount

importance, not only for your own personal safety but the safety of your riding colleagues
and courtesy to other road users. Remember poor attitude and poor behaviour on the road
reflects on the club and on the club’s principal sponsor, Turramurra Cyclery.

Much of the committee’s efforts over the last year have been focused on rider safety in
developing content for pre ride briefings, reporting incidents, developing policies on minors
who need to be under the direct supervision of their parent or legal guardian at all times,
ensuring all riders participating on club rides carry their license for insurance purposes etc.
These are necessary tasks which the committee takes very seriously to ensure everyone’s

 I would also wish to acknowledge the valuable assistance and advice that Brett Shields has
provided to the Committee on various aspects relating to the above.


Thank you to those of you who contribute to our website in providing commentary and also
photography. This certainly assists in giving the club its personality. Also the ease with
which members can access information such as upcoming events, calendars, results, ride
reports and on-line payments for events etc is a real asset.

You will also note that recently the website has had a “make over” however the benefits will
not be obvious for a couple of months when the “build” is complete. The objective of the
make over is to ensure that the site more interactive so the club has better communication
tools such as sending emails from the website, newsletters, newsfeeds etc. In the members
section members will be able to build their own profile. We will provide more information on
this development as the build progresses.


We wish to record our thanks and gratitude to Turramurra Cyclery as our principle sponsor
for their generosity and for the ongoing logistical and financial support in the running of our
club. The sponsorship of $80,000 for the period as disclosed in the Treasurer’s Report is
significant by any standards. We encourage all members, family and friends to support
Turramurra Cyclery as much as possible. Without their support the annual subscription and
many other costs for events, club administration etc would have to be borne by members.
Also on behalf of the club I wish to acknowledge the continuing support and sponsorship
provided by McCarroll’s Motors, Equity IT and our new sponsor Richardson Wrench.


The World Masters games which were held in Sydney in October 2009 were very successful
with Ian Atkins winning a gold and bronze medal on the track, Simon McCarroll winning a
the ITT and John Horsburgh a silver medalist in the ITT. Well done and congratulations.

Cam Peterson continues to build on his excellent season of a year ago when he won the
elite men’s NSW title. This season Cam has performed with distinction racing with the Virgin
Blue RBS Morgan’s pro cycling team and recently signed up with the same team for next
season. In August 2010 Cam won the 5th stage of the Tour of Geelong and in doing so won
the Victorian Roads Race Championships. Cam then backed this up in September with a

final stage win on the Tour of Tasmania. An amazing season. Congratulations to Cam and
we wish him well for what hopefully will be another great year in 2011.

Finally, on behalf of the Executive Committee thank you for your continued support in
building on our success over the last twelve months.

Yours sincerely,

John A Gee

Club Captains Report – 2010

We are back to 5 weekly rides, Saturday Akuna Bay, The Sunday Ride, Tuesday &
Wednesday Bobbin Head and Friday Fatbuster.
   Erratic weather patterns this year have seen some inconsistency in bunch numbers,
      however on the whole they have been pretty good.
   The Month of Madness (MOM) is set to start in December and we look for this to
      once again bring back regularity into our weekly rides.

New member inquiries have been fairly consistent throughout the year, although many are
referred from existing members the greater majority have found us online or heard of us
through word of mouth. Our organized bunch rides, events and tours are what no other club
offers. We are extremely fortunate to have such a depth of riders in the club that makes it
possible to run such quality rides. It should be noted it has taken many years to establish
this kind of depth and consistency in our bunch rides, this is something we should be proud
of achieving and not take for granted.

With success comes judgment and unfortunately we occasionally receive negative
correspondence and/or feedback from disgruntled motorists and cyclists. This reinforces the
need for all members to remember you constantly represent the club, its sponsors, yourself
and cycling as a sport. Be proud and lead by example.

    The Italy Tour, Canberra Tour and Snowies Tour … who could forget!
    Special rides spark up great involvement and interest, Macquarie Pass, Kangaroo
       Valley and Hunter Classic.
    Social nights once a month at Bar Stelvio have been well received and great
    Cam Peterson after coming through the Peloton Sports ranks rode for Virgin Blue
       Team in 2010 and has been signed by their Professional Team Fly V to ride in the
       USA in 2011.

TORC Annual Report - 2010

TORC this year has gone from strength to strength.

Events Manager
For the last three years Simon Scott has been running TORC on a voluntary basis during
work and personal time. With an understanding that the club no longer was growing with the
limited input he could provide Simon suggested it was time to appoint a dedicated person to
actively promote the club. Martine Scott is now employed by Turramurra Cyclery to promote
the club and run the events on a part time basis.

Membership Numbers
Membership numbers continue to grow but it is anticipated that as the increase of TORC run
events continue to grow the membership numbers will also increase.

This year we have had up to 30 riders on a Saturday morning ride and 15 on a Wednesday
night ride.

Skills Session
We have also increased the number of three hour skills sessions over the coming year with
elite mountain bike riders. Riding skills underpins the enjoyment of mountain biking and
reduces the fear many riders face when out on the trails. More skills encourages our
members to ride more often and get further benefits from riding with our club.

Training Camps
We scheduled and successfully ran a Canberra Camp in association with mtnbike.com.au. It
was a great success and two more Canberra Camps are planned for 2011.

In the pipeline for March 2011 is an International mountain bike trip to Rotorua in New
Zealand. Rotorua is considered one of the best places in the world to mountain bike and
many of the TORC members are eagerly anticipating the final details of this week long trip to
New Zealand.

TORC’s Facebook site has been a huge factor in keeping the buzz going in the club. Instant
news is available and club members are constantly fed information about events, friends
news, photos, videos and links. We believe this has helped to increase numbers on the
rides and events we have planned.

Looking forward 2011
TORC will continue with weekly rides, epics, skills sessions, training camps and international

There are new trails planned by Hornsby Council and a new mountain bike park is being
built early in 2011 by Kuringai Council which means that mountain biking in this area is
going to become much more prominent. We are committed as a club to improving the trails
and educating others about the bush and ultimately encouraging more members to join and
have as much fun as we do.

Happy Trails!
Simon Scott

Treasurer’s Report
For the year ended 30 June 2010

The 2009/2010 year was the first for three years that we have two full years for comparison
purposes after the transition periods following the balance date change from December to
The results for the year are healthy after a bad 2008/2009 with the NSW Criterium
championships at Homebush in 2008/2009 costing much more than expected due to
impositions by the Olympic Park Authority.
The reserves and bank account have been returned to a healthy position.
The third page of the financial report shows, where possible, how funds were spent as
between TORC & the Roadies.
The stronger financial position enables your Club to provide better services for the
