TNR 2017-9

Tuesday Night Ride

6:15 pm Start Time
Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Last week featured the first "non-solo" ride of the year. Like a groundhog, seeing Frank on his bike outdoors is a good sign Spring can’t be too far away.
Thanks for coming out Frank and I won’t tell anyone that you high-tailed it back to Arizona immediately following the ride.

This week marks a return to typical winter riding in Moose Jaw.
Frozen ground, a sprinkling of snow, a sharp wind.
We will circumnavigate the city using alleys and pathways in a 60-90 minute ride.

Ask yourself "is this something I can do?" Tell yourself "yes".

See you on the trails,

Bob

TNR 2017-8

Tuesday Night Ride
February 21, 2017
6:15 pm Start Time
Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Tonight’s ride will feature paved pathways and low-traffic city streets.
The goal will be to stay clean and finish the ride with gears and brakes still operational.
Considering that the temperature of the ride will be at-or-near freezing and precipitation is expected, this may prove impossible.

Impossible challenges are what make TNR my favourite ride of the week.
Come and join me.

Race Director – Spring Classic NEEDED

Each spring the Pavers do a fantastic job hosting the first road racing event in Saskatchewan.  Racers from across Saskatchewan and some from Alberta and Manitoba are one the start line.  This years event needs a volunteer race director to coordinate and plan the event.  Larry G. has been doing this for the last few years and will be able to assist.  I will also be a resource to set up the registration and look after the regulatory end of the weekend.  In addition to the glory of being the race director you will also receive and honorarium and since being a race director also demonstrates being a great volunteer you receive extra entries for the volunteer appreciation bike draw at the AGM.

The 2017 edition of the Spring Classic is May 6 -7 and it would be great to have a race director in place in early March.  Please contact me directly.

So my wife says to me: "TNR or Valentines Day? Choose wisely…."

I chose TNR (I hope I made the right decision).
Above average temperature means surface conditions will be soft and squishy.
Use your tires rated for softness and squishiness.

Wear a helmet.
Bring something to drink.
Put lights on your bike for maximum visibility.

Fresh snow, and lots of it!
An exciting and challenging ride awaits.
We will circumnavigate the city and plow on through the white stuff. We will go around the yellow stuff (sorry Mr. Trump.).

Its a cold one, so wear your best winter gear.

Helmet is on your head? Check!
Water bottle is filled and in its holder? Check!
Lights are attached to bike? Check!
