A few announcements (and thank you’s) to pass along tonight.


A few Thank You’s!

With the close our road riding season after an interesting year of weather - summer temperatures in the Fall and cooler, often wet weather in the summer - I’d like to recognize and thank a few individuals on behalf of all club members who helped make our riding season possible:

  • Ed Pfiffer for building our schedule of Ride Marshals to make sure we had coverage for our rides

  • Carlos Vivas, Frank Goehner and Laura Melliss for sharing ride coordination duties to make sure we had our routes posted on our site, and helping to coordinate the weather calls on many questionable days

  • Barry Poyntz, Pieter du Toit and Steve Traenkmann for helping to coordinate and run our Group 5 and 6 rides

  • Michael Skafel and John Kennard for taking lead on our Tuesday daytime Group 2 rides

  • And finally, all of our Ride Marshals – without you we would not be able to hold our rides!

OCC Velodrome Nights:

We have secured private track time at the velodrome for our members for the off-season.  With the upcoming World Cup races being held in early December, there has been limited availability so our first session will be on December 17th.  Most sessions will run on Sunday nights for 1.5 hours in length (we will have one Saturday evening session on December 30th). 

Cost will be approximately $15 / per person for each session; track bike rental fees are not included and are to be arranged directly at the track.

In order to participate, you must have successfully completed your “A” and “B” certifications on the Mattamy track.

If you wish to sign up for one or more sessions, please fill out the following form.
