Gravel + Shmutz on roads = 2x flats on bikes

Hi there,

I am sharing this with the club in hopes that if we all take a bit of time to complete this survey we can make a difference. I have called in a couple of times (mostly concerning the stretch along Victoria Road and the one across York Road) only to be assured that it will be taken care of. York Road only increasingly gets worse. Anyhow, Sage discovered that the following survey is occurring on September 7th. Please take the time to complete…

Have your say: Take the street sweeping survey by September 7

A huge thanks to Speed River Bicycle for providing the prizes again this year! Here is your podium:

1st – Ben S (Velocis helmet + shop tee)

2nd – Mike D (Flare R rear light + shop tee)

3rd – Aaron P ($50 gift card + shop tee)

I honestly hope I’ve done the maths right, feel free to email me if you think there’s a problem. Will be in touch with the winners for prizing. Thanks to all of the club members who participated!

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!

September “try-a-ride” on the 5th

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 September 5th, departing the library at 6:00pm (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!
