Indoor Training Starts This Wednesday, Jan. 28!

The SRCC indoor winter training series is a go! Sessions will begin this Wednesday, January 28th at 7:00 p.m., and continue as such each week (i.e. Wednesdays, 7 pm) through to March 25, inclusive.

The location is new for this year… all sessions will be held at the Mill Street Lofts located at 26 Ontario Street, Guelph. Onsite visitor parking is limited, but on-street parking is also available. As you approach the main building/chimney from the lot you will see a smaller building on your left (you can’t miss it), which is where the group will be. Bring your bike, trainer, water and a towel for 1 – 1.5 hours of pure, sweat-stained enjoyment.

This series is free to all SRCC members, as costs are being covered by the club… with thanks to our generous sponsors, of course!

Hope to see you there! Any questions, please contact Gabhan Chalmers at gabhan@speedrivercyclingclub.org.


Milton Velodrome – Try the Track Update

Those of you wanting to try riding the boards are encouraged to register for a Try the Track session.

The sessions at the Milton Velodrome are quite full so getting a dedicated session just for the SRCC will be difficult. I was out there watching the Canadian Track Championships the track looks fantastic. The website seems to be in much better shape now so if you were not able to register in Nov/Dec then try again now and you will hopefully have some better success.

The track will be open to the public the week of Jan 26 to certified riders.

Those of you who want to see the track there is another event the weekend of Jan 9-11. The Milton International Track Challenge has races running all weekend. Tickets are 10$ I believe.
