RandonnĂŠe


Randonnée The French word ‘Randonnée’ doesn’t directly translate in English. Usually it’s an organised group ride, with some emphasis on speed, however it’s not a race. Riders will typically use road-racing or lighttouring bicycles. Images are from a Randonnée held at Oak Flat, southwestern Sydney in August. Teams of 4 riders (including a few ACE members) negotiated a 120km course that included limited course directions, 3 dirt sections and 1000m+ of climbing. Great fun (apparently).

Introduction

E X E C U T I V E C Y C L I S T M AG A Z I N E

The right ingredients, environment, time and care... While our purpose seems simple: to foster healthy and sustainable business connections, like the creation of a fine wine: simplicity requires time, mastering complexities via the right environment, vision and dedication to enjoy and savour what is being nurtured. In the same way nothing is more personally rewarding than watching the unique ACE model evolve, mature and be savoured by our members, corporate partners and ambassadors. I’m inspired to see so many ACE community ‘connections’ evolving and maturing: be they new appointments, tangible business outcomes or advocacy of ambassador teams. The ACE Advisory Board and I are united in our belief that connecting our athletes and members benefits personal and corporate health. On this note, we have recently been overwhelmed by Australian

athletes transitioning into corporate life. Although these programs are in their infancy, we urge you to chat and connect with our athlete ambassadors at ACE events. Don’t underestimate the value of your support and activity in the community - it could shape the next champion: athlete and/or CEO! Ryan O’Neill, ACE CEO & Founder

In a market characterised by unique customers with differing needs, it is surprising that many still view commercial property building contractors as the same. There are critical differences that set ISIS apart, so it is unclear why price tends to be the major differentiator. ISIS is determined to change this view; we transform ordinary spaces into inspiring spaces that connect people and communities. With an array of property, design, construction, sustainability and sector specialists, we channel our knowledge, experience and intelligence through best-inclass methodologies that deliver value to customers and are responsive to their unique needs.

A Police escort out of Adelaide added to the excitement. We arrived into Victor Harbor mid afternoon after riding past the beautiful McLaren Vale without a tasting stop - pity. And straight into a Camp Quality session with some local families while the Victor Harbor CBA branch also received a visit from some of our CBA team members. Our community dinner at Victor Hotel was a great way to finish day one of the Tour. We heard an amazing story from guest speaker, Sebastian Terry, who shared his “100 Things” bucket list and his progress along

Charity Ride Support

As a high profile cycling community, containing influential

E X E C U T I V E C Y C L I S T M AG A Z I N E

business leaders, we are consistently approached by great charities and charity cycling events. We all know the great efforts required to train for and complete some of these fantastic events, and its hard to think of a better way to represent and share some of the discomfort and suffering that the ultimate beneficiaries go through on a daily basis. We therefore have debated long and hard to take a position this subject, before identifying an approach that benefits as many members, events and charities as possible. Understanding that each of us has a cause that we are close to, we are now enabling a member/s to share their story, reasons and charity with the group at our Breakfast with the

performance road bike hire by the hour

Tamarama is 7 kilometres east of the Sydney central business district. The beach is about 1 kilometre south of Bondi Beach and a couple of hundred metres north of Bronte Beach.

In 1887 Sydney’s first coastal amusement park, and one of the earliest in Australia, opened at Tamarama. Named The Bondi Aquarium, its greatest attraction was a plunging roller coaster that dived and twisted over the beach.

Because of its deep water, small size and easterly aspect, Tamarama is dangerous for most swimmers even in a moderate ocean swell. Tamarama is considered the most dangerous patrolled beach in New South Wales, with more rescues per thousand bathers than any other of Sydney’s beaches.
