2013 club clothing has arrived. For those who have special ordered items, they’ll be available for pick-up at Olympia Cycle starting Tuesday, May 21 at 8 p.m. For those who missed the order deadline or are new to the club, you’ll be happy to know that the shop will have limited stock of jerseys and jackets. Check ‘em out soon, as selection won’t last.
Three of us, Dan, Lindsay and Hal, are off on a little adventure this weekend, the Alexander portion of the Almanzo gravel road race. There were suppose to be four of us but someone got pulled back into work (stupid seniority rules) There are three distances to sign up for: the Almanzo 100 (100 miles), the Royal 162 (162 miles), and the Alexander (400 miles). A map of the course can be found here (MapMyRide link). We start at 5:00 AM on Friday morning and we finish…..
We’ll all have Spot tracking devices in case you are interested in following our progress:
Well they are back if the whether allows them to be back. As of now we are scheduled to go. Rain will determine the course that we use (some trails may be out depending on how wet they are – do not want to erode the trails more than they already are), if it is too wet then we’ll have to postpone yet again – uggh!
In the meantime you might as well download the registration and waiver and start hoping that we don’t get as much rain as forecast.
OCC has been doing ditch clean-ups on Roblin Blvd west of the Perimeter - one of our favourite/local places to ride - for a few years. Over the last few weeks we’ve got most of it cleaned — over a ton of garbage and recyclables (yep, we seperate ‘em out) removed.
Pics from tonight: top – the crew; bottom – Dan wins the prize for best find(s). That’s a fine merlot, for the oenophiles in the crowd.
