Thursday, June 2nd: Evening community bike ride

This evening’s ride is open to anyone who wants to ride including non-members. It’s a great in-town route that promises to be pleasantly easy. Riders do not need to be members of the club, but they will be required to sign a waiver that will be available at the beginning of the ride. Let’s see if we can encourage some friends and family to come out and join us! (Helmets are required)

Start time: 6:30pm

Tuesday, May 31st: Evening community bike ride

This one is our very first evening ride and it’s open to anyone who wants to ride including non-members. So grab a friend and bring them to our second community bike ride. They do not need to be members of the club. Hopefully we’ll see some new faces! As planned, the ride will be about 13.5km and take place totally in town where the routes are flat.

Non-members are encouraged to come out and give it a try. The only requirement will be that they wear a helmet and sign an OCA waiver that we will have available at the beginning of the ride.

The threat of rain must have kept people at home on Sunday because only thirteen of our club members showed up and while we waited for new riders from the community, none came so we did our own thing and went 54km. Club members who wish to extend the 13km ride are more than welcome to do so after the planned community ride is over.

Start time: 6:30pm
