CYPRESS CHALLENGE

With the Annual Cypress Challenge all over until next year there are a couple of housekeeping items we wanted to let you know about.

Lost and Found: We have one unclaimed coat check item (Coat check item# 090011), a pair of knee socks and a grey, long-sleeved Valley Truss t-shirt with a bull dog on the front. Another is small bag left behind at the registration/check in area. It is a bike bag with “La Bicicletta Pro Shop” on it.

YYoga: As a congratulations for completing the Cypress Challenge, YYoga has given us this promo just for you!

Change to the event - the final deadline for completing any of the 4 stages will be the cutoff date listed for Stage #4 October 23, 2014 - so participants have until the final deadline to record a time or improve your current times on any of the stages.

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 expected later this season.

Where: Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve, meet at the parking lot at the end of Lillooet Road, North Vancouver
When: August 30 8:30 AM
Length: 2 hours
Cost: Free to all 2014 registered Club Members

IF YOU PLAN ON ATTENDING EITHER THE KICK-OFF MEETING OR THE SKILLS SESSION PLEASE RSVP HERE
