Tour de France Velogames competition!

EDIT #2: Velogames appears to still be down. Since the rider picks were published, and are still up, my plan is to make a big pot of coffee and figure out the podium manually at the end of the Tour. Well, with a spreadsheet anyway. Game on!

EDIT: It looks like Velogames is running into some legal issues. Not sure if this is going to go ahead or not, will update as we find out.

If you’re not familiar, every year we do an online competition for the TdF via Velogames, with podium prizing from Speed River Bicycle. Head over to Velogames.com, create your “team” for the Tour, and join the official SRCC league, using code 831390811 (make sure to ‘Confirm’, it’s a weird website). Only registered club members will be considered for prizes. A big thanks to Tim and the team at SRB for the support! Best of luck to all! Use this LINK to keep track of points.

A note on ride descriptions

The season is in full swing now, and we’d like to remind club members to please adhere to the description and the “spirit” of each ride. Wednesdays are meant to be social, steady rides, without surges or attacks. If you feel the need to go faster, please visit another night’s option; same goes for Tuesday B and Thursday B rides. We aim to keep the club enjoyable to all of the participating members, and would kindly ask that experienced riders focus on helping others, and working to keep the group riding as one. And a big thanks to those many members that already do this!

May “try-a-ride” on the 9th

The OCA allows non-members to participate in one club activity per year, as a chance to try out a club and group riding. We’re holding a ‘try-a-ride’ session on May 9th, departing the library at 6:30pm (please be early), and possibly joining up with the regular club ride. If you’ve always wondered what a club ride is like, then this is your chance! Details:

Please make sure that you read the appropriate ride description, and meet the fitness and safety standards for riding. Feel free to email us with any questions!
