Coronovirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
In line with Western Australian government regulations of 19 May 2020 the limit on CTAWA day rides is lifted to 20 riders per group (larger attendances will be split into groups of 20 and groups separated by 50 metres to approximate the recommendations for multi-site fixed venues). Tours and Social Evenings are still suspended pending further relaxation of Covid-19 regulations. Read Stu’s full letter here.

Serpentine Falls – Full Pannier Tour
Saturday February 22 @ 9:00 am - Sunday February 23 @ 12:00 pm
This two day ride is mainly on back roads. After a pleasant ride through Wellard and along Kwinana Beach Rd we will stop for morning tea at Pengo’s Cafe, admiring Penguin Island in the distance. From here we follow Warnbro Sound to Port Kennedy, then we leave the coast and head inland via back roads through Baldivis to the campground at The Serpentine Falls Park Home and Tourist Village. Bring your bathers so you can enjoy a swim in the caravan park pool (the Serpentine Falls may be closed for swimming due to possible parasitic amoebae).Also bring your food and drinks with you (as the hotel is currently closed and the tourist park has a camper’s kitchen and BBQ). There are some supplies available for dinner and breakfast at the Serpentine IGA.
The return to Armadale on Sunday is an easy 30 km passing through Mundijong. You might want to ride all the way home after a coffee break at the Dome in Armadale.
Please RSVP to the tour leader by 15 February to assist with the booking of the tent sites. Tent sites are $20 per person to be paid to the tour leader at Wellard TS on Saturday. It would be helpful if you could have the correct amount available. Cabins are available for those who don’t want to camp. If you would like a cabin for the one night, you will need to ring ahead of the tour and mention you are with the Cycle Touring Association, and if available, you will be able to book a cabin for the one night.
Those interested in participating please contact Randell on 0468 767 405 or email email@example.com by 15 February 2020.
