March Club News: Sign up for Women's Skills Clinic and Spin Classes


For women that want to develop their riding skills to the next level, this clinic will include 4 two hour group sessions with the same instructors each week during the month of May. The goal of the clinic will be to help women of all ability levels acquire the skills they need for group riding situations, be it casual group rides, granfondos or their first race. Open to club members and non-members.  

Participants should be comfortable riding their bikes for 2 hours at a moderate pace. This is not only a great chance to meet and ride with the Women's Race Team, but also to accelerate your learning curve and get you to that next step in your cycling ability.

Ken Phillips - Royal Centre Dental Group

Ken Phillips is not just one of Vancouver's fastest 50-year-old cyclists and a long-time Glotman-Simpson club member and sponsor, he's also one of Vancouver's finest dentists.

Ken is offering Glotman-Simpson members a great discount on dental services... 20% off. Has anyone ever heard of a dentist giving discounts? Didn't think so.

And to cap it all off, for Glotman-Simpson members who have full insurance coverage and go to see Ken, he will make a significant donation (20% of your dental fee) to support Pancreatic Cancer Research at the BC Cancer Foundation. He will present the cheque (representing his donation total for the year) at the 2014 Cypress Hill Climb.

I'm sure you can see why you should book your next cleaning with Ken Phillips at Royal Centre Dental Group. To book your appointment give Ken's office a call or drop by in person:
