2017 Road Rides – YAH

With the longer days and nicer weather it will soon be time to resume the weekly road rides.  Chris Boys will be the ride coordinator this year.  The rides will be Wednesday evenings at 615 and Saturday mornings at 930.  The meeting location will remain at the Safeway patio as this is pretty central for all members.  We are planning on having some fun events throughout the summer including some pursuit style races, time trials and maybe leave a little earlier and stretch the legs for some longer Saturday rides.  If you have an idea for a ride chat with Chris and plan something.

The rides will begin this Wednesday April 19, 2017 and Saturday April 22, 2017.  Of course you need to be a member to attend these group rides and membership can be done easily HERE.

Spring Classic – wrap up

This past weekend was another successful Spring Classic in Moose Jaw and once again our Pavers did wonderful job in helping prepare the courses and marshalling.  Thank-you Tim, Frank, Jim, Chris, Fabien, Bob, Warren, Matt, Dave and Larry who all spent some time at the event this weekend.  Without your help this event does not happen.  In talking with several out of town racers they were really impressed with all the races and the venues we use.  Tyler P. raced in a really tough Cat. 4 group and finished 7th overall.
