September Club News: Winter riding schedule starts October 1

Group rides move to winter schedule starting October 1

While we cringe at the thought of cloudy skies and rain drops, the fender season is quickly approaching. Effective Saturday, October 1, club rides move to the winter riding schedule.

  • Winter group ride time is 9 AM, and will follow the Richmond route.
  • During the winter there are no scheduled ride leaders. There are no designated women's group rides, Wednesday (Cypress Mountain), or Sunday (Fraser Valley) rides.
  • Rides should be no-drop and full length fenders are mandatory.
  • Rides meet at the upper parking level above No Frills and Cuppa Joy Coffee House on West 4th Ave at Alma St.

Submit your nominations for the Cycling BC 2016 Awards

The Cycling BC 2016 Awards Ceremony will take place on November 27 to recognize provincial champions, series winners, and community awards winners. This event also gives us an opportunity to recognize outstanding members of our community, BC's best cyclists, most dedicated volunteers, and more based on your votes. More event information can be found on the Cycling BC website.

The Glotman•Simpson Cycling club has seen significant achievements this season, not only with the women's and men's race teams, but within skills development, coaching and support for club members, and community involvement. We hope you can take two minutes to complete this year's nomination form. And maybe jot down Glotman•Simpson Cycling as Club of the Year for good measure if you're so inclined!
