4 DAYS UNTIL THE CYPRESS CHALLENGE
Thanks to everyone that stopped into Geoff's place last Saturday for some coffee and doughnuts. We had lots of new riders register for the 7th Annual Cypress Challenge but we aren't quite there yet - help us reach our goal of 600 riders for 2014! Already registered? Grab a friend and bring them with you or spread the word with #gscycling and #600for600.

A PLEDGE FROM NEIL MCKINNON, FOUNDER, GRANFONDO CANADA
"I have admired and been moved by the efforts of Geoff and Myriam, and the collective support of the Glotman Simpson Cycling Club to raise awareness and needed funds in the fight against Pancreatic Cancer. I pledge that for every new registrant in the 2014 RBC GranFondo Whistler from today to Friday August 22 using the code GLOTMANHILLCLIMB, I will donate $40 of that registration fee to the fight."
CYCLOCROSS KICK-OFF MEETING & SKILLS SESSION
If you want to race CX this year come out to the CX kick-off meeting on Wednesday August 27 at 6 PM at the Glotman Simpson Cycling Club office. This is when we all get to meet one another, go over the supported race calendar, pick up pre-ordered kit and answer any questions you have. We will also have very limited inventory for those wanting to purchase skinsuits, leg warmers, jackets and gloves.
We are changing it up for the first skills session this year, instead of Jericho we will hold this clinic on the Shore. Bob Welbourn will be covering control at speed with some training principles and prep for the first race of the season at Aldor Acres the following day. A second clinic is planned to be hosted later this season.
Where: Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, meet at the parking lot at end of Lillooet Road, North Vancouver
When: August 30, 8:30 AM
Length: 2 hours
Cost: Free to all 2014 registered Club Members
