A Special Thanks for 2020 SRCC Members

We want to take a moment to thank everyone who joined the Club for the 2020 season despite the uncertainty of the pandemic.

Congratulations are in order for everyone. We followed the rules, we kept safe and made the best of a very different season. And a special thanks to those who chose to do their own rides and still support the club – we respect your decisions and appreciate your commitment.

Together we made the best of it.

In recognition of your support, your board of directors want to show appreciation for everyone’s commitment with a special treat. So, we designed the very first SRCC water bottle!  These high quality anti-fungal bottles were custom made for us by Specialized.  They come in two sizes: Road Bike 769 ml (26 oz) or the smaller MTB 650 ml (22 oz). We have one for every 2020 member and two for every 2020 ride leader.

If you were a paid member in 2020 you should have received a detailed email with instructions on how to safely receive your SRCC water bottle. Check your spam folder if you haven’t.

Please contact board member Meg if you have any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you all… when we can.
Your SRCC Board

Sunday Nov 15th Gravel Ride

According to the forecast there most likely will not be a club gravel ride this Sunday. If for some miraculous reason the weather completely turns around, we will quickly post a ride. Check back if that should happen.

It should also be noted that we will keep trying to hold gravel rides until we can’t anymore. Limiting factors will be snow, rain, or temperatures below 5 degrees. After that you’re on your own out in the cold or on the road to Watopia.

Hope to see you soon, Rusty K.

Sunday Oct 4th 11 AM Gravel Ride – All Members

RIDE CANCELLED – too wet and cold = frowny faces

This Sunday’s 70km Gravel ride is last year’s BGR (Big Gravel Ride) club event in reverse! This in-town multi surface route is best ridden when Guelphites are shuttered – the forecast is promising that at this point. If you didn’t ride this last year then you will be discovering some hidden gems in your own backyard. And if you did ride it last year, taking it the other way ’round will feel totally different!

However, the weather is looking less than optimal at this point. Final weather call will be made no later than 10 AM.

We have a rest/re-fuel stop in Farnham at 30 km. Bring cash/card and a mask.

If the group splits, we will regroup throughout the ride and no one will be left behind. Try loading the course into your bike computer if you have one. RWGPS has lots of on-line help.

Start time: 11 AM – Mornings are colder now!

Start location: Guelph Youth Music Centre

Register HERE. Note: All steps in the form must be completed!

The ride is capped at 15 participants. Once the cap is reached, the registration link will automatically close.

SRCC Big Gravel Ride 2020!

We’re doing it again (again).

We had such a great event last year on a 70 km route which was almost entirely inside Guelph, we thought we would try one almost entirely outside of Guelph. And like last year, we guarantee there will be sections that are unknown territory for you.You may recall we posted this as a ride-it-by-yourself COVID version earlier this year, well now we will ride it as a club as permitted by provincial and OCA guidelines.

About the route: It’s 79.3 km long – 63% of it is unpaved. In the middle there is one very long, continuous 27.5 km gravel section – bolt on your gravel aero bars! The start and finish are at Fixed Gear Brewing, our sponsor. We have spots for up to 12 in each of the three speed groups, Fast, Medium and Leisurely, so sign up soon to insure you get a spot! Several club members have ridden this already and given their seal of approval. The route is really good!
