Pavers Century Wrapup

This past Saturday 10 members participated in the club Century ride.  This was the first Century ride the club hosted for a few years and it was great to have members out for the event.  The ride was challenging and everyone battled the headwind heading out on Hwy  363.  The headwind was a great tailwind for the return leg of the ride and that was a lot of fun.  To wrap up the ride we had a great time and the BBQ.  Congratulations to Jim, Matt, Fabien and Frank on their 100 mile ride and Tim, Chris, James, Bob, Rick and Rob on the 100 km ride.

A huge thank-you to Ev for picking up the supply box, checking on the riders and preparing a wonderful desert.  Thanks to Boh’s Cycle for providing a kit for a prize.  Chris Boys was lucky winner of the Boh’s Cycle kit.  Thanks to Dane at Western Cycle for getting us hooked up with some Muc-off and Park Tools swag.

An awesome Fall ride is in store for you today!
A 90 minute ride on the Moose Jaw river valley trails.

Sunset is at 7:19pm today, so a headlight and taillight for the ride home is recommended.
The ride will do the Western (darker) trails first and finish up on the East (lighter) side of the valley.
Also, after the sun goes down, the temperature can drop quickly, so you may want sleeves and warmer gloves.

Bring something to drink,
Wear a helmet.

See you on the trails,
Bob
