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.

Tonight’s Road Ride (26 April 2017) – Cancelled

as a result of the lest then pleasant weather the ride will be cancelled tonight.  The next club road ride is Saturday leaving the Safeway patio at 930 am.

Today was supposed to be the day that I announced "All Trails are Open".
And then old-man-winter decided that he would "not go gentle into that good night".

Tonight’s ride will explore what is rideable without causing too much damage.
60-90 minutes in the Moose Jaw River valley.

For those that have yet to attend a TNR, remember to do an ABC-Quick check.
A = air
B = brakes
C = chain
Quick = quick-release levers are closed
Check = a once-over look of everything else

Wear a helmet.

Bring something to drink.

And don’t forget to email Tim twix and tell him you want Pavers socks!

See you tonight,

Bob

Tuesday Night Ride
April 18, 2017
6:15 pm Start Time
Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Tonight’s ride will feature trail, trail, trail. Only the rivers edge trail on both sides of 7th Avenue NW and the ECO trail will be avoided until they dry up.
All other trails are rideable without damaging the surface.
The ride will take approximately 90 minutes to complete.

A shout-out to Frank, Mark, Eric, and Rob who have each attended 1 TNR ride so far this year.
A heads-up to everyone else that you will be able to complete the ride without feeling like you are "holding up the group".
TNR stops frequently to re-group, we try not leave anyone behind.
If you want to go fast and drop your riding companions, you have 6 other nights of the week to do that.

Wear a helmet.

Bring something to drink.

Lights are only needed for your ride home if you live far from DQ.

See you tonight,

Bob
