bon_tonjpgThe BonTon Roulet 7-day Supported Bicycle Tour
If you are starting to make vacation plans, we highly recommend this great week-long cycling tour from July 21-27, 2013. Several Club members participated last year and all reported it to be an unbeatable value, excellent riding, and great food. Some are planning to do it again this summer. It starts in Cortland NY which is about a 4 hour drive from here, and tours the Finger Lakes region of upstate New York. 2013 Registration is now open and goes for $575 US.

Virtual Reality Cycle Training at Port Hope Bicycle
Anyone interested in cycling-specific stretching, weight training and stationary bike training can get a head start on the cycling season with Port Hope Bicycle’s state of the art virtual reality trainer. Ride through Italy and France without the cost of airfare. 🙂 If you’re up to it, challenge yourself on some of the worlds most famous climbs! Fitness testing is also available. Program pricing starts @ $99.

Cycle touring over the March Break
Anyone interested in spending March break riding down south? George is putting the word out to see if there is any interest by folks who might want to head down to the Carolinas for a week of cycling. An appropriate type of ride (i.e. terrain, distance, speed etc.) can be determined by those going. George can be reached at 905-885-1077.

And finally, for a fun little video, we quite enjoyed this one: Performance!
