Hello Club members,
I have managed to hack my way into the main page so this will be another way to pass along information. The executive would prefer to pass along information via the website as much as possible and keep the e-mails to a minimum and for more time sensitive or urgent info.
We encourage you to bookmark this main page and check back often.
The clothing fit kit will remain at the trek store downtown, available for members to try on sizing and leave a deposit cash or cheques accepted. Thank you to the trek store for the service to the club. The clothing order deadline is the end of this week, August 19.
Upcoming rides for the week are the regular Monday evening MTB ride at 6:30 this evening in Midhurst. The Tuesday evening rides at 6:30.
This is also TT week, out on the new buttery smooth and flat Ingram road course. Thursday (18th) first rider off at 7:00 p.m. be there early to warm up and sign up. This aids in the rider staging.
Here is a map with directions via HWY 400 from Barrie, it is a very quick drive and right off the highway.
And of course Sunday morning 9 am at Fred Grant Square.
The Barrie Cycling club will be introducing a Cadet/Junior fall cyclocross development program. The program will include three wedneday evenings skills sessions at Sunnidale park on Sept 7, 14, 21, followed by the 4 Wednesday evening Cyclocross races at Hardwood ski and Bike on Sept 28th, then Oct 5, 12 and 19th.
The program will conclude with two Southern Cup races held at the Barrie Sports complex on Oct 23, and Hardwood Ski and Bike on Oct 30th.
Food for thought section:
I often receive e-mails asking if the club offers more relaxed “touring” paced rides. There seems to be a lot of interest in, general speaking, slower, shorter, social type outings, most likely suited for Sundays or Saturdays. I can speak for the executives in saying we would love nothing more than to offer and support a ride like that. However we need a person or a small group of people to come forward to organize and run something like that.
With a growing club we are starting to come to our limits of what a very small group or volunteers can organize. If the club is to continue to grow we also need our volunteer, organizing committees, ride leader numbers to grow as well.
