We are getting warmer temps this week with March break and we have pushed out the clocks by an hour so it is time to get ready for spring riding.
We will be updating our ride calendar in the coming weeks so you can get a feel for what we have scheduled this season. We will send out an email blast to update you when that is ready.
Starting in April, we will schedule rides on Saturday's based on trail conditions. Turkey Point, GORBA, and Puslinch are typcially the best for spring riding as they seem to drain well with rain and the winter melt. Of course that does not mean that these rides happen 100% of the time so everyone needs to be flexible with cancellations or trail changes.
In June, we will start our weeknight rides which will follow a similar format to last years riding schedule. Monday night will be a group ride held at Christie Lake (this is also ladies night). Thursday will be a group ride for all members and will primarily be held at Kelso, however, we will look at GORBA, Hydrocut, and Puslinch as otpions on Thursday nights as well. Wednesday night will be challenge nights with a little more focus on skills development for all levels. Wednesday night rides will be held at Kelso and will be for all levels of riders. More details will be forthcoming on how these will be managed.
You will start to recieve emails in the coming weeks to renew your membership, for those that have already completed their renewal - thank you. Renewals will be important this year as we are considering capping the membership at the current level so that we can ensure a great experience for all members at all times. We will provide an update on this in the coming weeks as well. We are now over 50 strong so thank you to all of you for your support.
We are planning a couple of big trips this year, so hoping there will be a few of you interested in tagging along. Keep an eye on this blog for updates on trips and the Ride Calendar for scheduling.
Lastly, this is our 5th year operating as a club and we will be planning some fun things to do during our rides and trips. In addition, we will be launching our swag store this spring which will include our riding jerseys updated from last year and some t-shirts, hats and other swag with the new logos.
There will be lots coming at you in the next month so stay tuned and if you have any questions, please email us anytime or leave a comment below.
