Library Meetup – Where to

You may have noticed the surge in riders participating in our regular rides this year. With so many riders now coming out for each ride, the group can easily spill out into the path of library patrons trying to enter and exit the building if we’re not paying attention.

So please group up to the right of the entrance, on the sidewalk where there are usually vacant parking spaces as well. Anywhere that’s not blatantly in the way once 50 riders show up, will do.

Thanks for your cooperation in reducing the impact we have on our meeting spot hosts.


Club kit pre-orders have arrived!

Dear Kit-Starved Membership,

The club kit is finally in after some pesky production delays, and it’s sorted and ready for pick-up at Speed River Bicycle for all those who pre-ordered. Just show up with your club card and you will be handed the latest and greatest in SRCC apparel.

Important notes for everyone:

  • Check your order contents for accuracy before you leave the shop.
  • Size substitutions: Unfortunately we cannot swap items for different sizes upon pickup, as it would cause anarchy with ensuring everyone gets what they ordered. (Post a size swap on the club classifieds if you find something doesn’t fit quite right!)
  • Overstock: There will be a selection of items for sale SOON on our website for those who didn’t manage to get a pre-order in. This will come up once the pre-orders are picked up, in roughly 2 – 3 weeks time.
  • The shop: Speed River Bicycle is graciously helping us with distribution of the kit, but as the club is responsible for all other aspects, please direct any issues or questions to

Thanks to all for your patience, and enjoy your new duds!


‘Learn to Group Ride’ clinics now available

Enjoy the camaraderie and feeling of effortless speed that comes with a finely tuned group ride? Looking to ease into the dynamics of a large pack, without jumping head-first into one of the regular club rides?

Then this clinic is for you – available free of charge to all SRCC members as well as those on an OCA ‘Try-a-Ride’ waiver (see below).

We will be offering (to start) three ‘learn to group ride’ clinics, in a relaxed, no-stress atmosphere. There will be a handful of very experienced riders on hand to guide the group through the essentials of making group riding safe, easy, and FUN!

From our meeting spot we’ll do a short debrief (~10 minutes) then head out on a short course near Guelph Lake, gradually working towards riding as a cohesive group. This is NOT an intense workout or difficult ride – but we ask that you to have a road bicycle in good working order, and enough experience turning the pedals to hold roughly 25km/h for two or more hours, solo.


*Sessions are capped at 10 riders each, and minimum of 6. We will confirm either way with those who sign up if a session will run.

When: Follow the link above to sign up for one of these three sessions

  • Wed May 13th, 6:30pm
  • Wed May 27th, 6:30pm
  • Wed June 10th, 6:30pm

Where: Meeting spot – by the dam on Conservation Road

Try-a-Ride Program
The ‘Try-a-Ride’ program permits non-members to participate in one club ride per year, maximum, by completing the requisite OCA insurance waiver. Please indicate your intent to ‘try a ride’ when signing up for a group ride clinic (if applicable). We also ask that all participants meet the minimum fitness requirements of the entry-level, Wednesday ‘Social Ride’, i.e. “can ride for two hours non stop at a pace that averages 25 km/h or greater.”
