Happy Friday, SRCC!
James Fedosov here. The sun is shining, the birds are (maybe) chirping, March is here to taunt us with almost spring-like weather, and you're waiting patiently for the week to end.
Below is an update on SRCC happenings: some housekeeping, some exciting social news, and a short sponsor plug. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, read on!
Membership Registration is Live
Let's get the most important news out first: registration is officially open for Speed River Cycling Club's 2019 season!
Head on over to www.speedrivercyclingclub.org and click the "JOIN" tab at the top to get rolling. Why become a member? Numerous weekday and weekend rides, social events and special rides (more on that in next week's newsletter), and a 10% discount at your local bike shop!
This year, we have added a short survey to get a better idea of who our membership is. Please do your best to fill it out honestly, as this will help our volunteer executive and ride leaders serve you that much better!
Save the Date: SRCC Spring Social
Get out that calendar and a big red marker: the SRCC Spring Social will be taking place Saturday, March 23rd.
Here are your details:
The "Where": 5 Queen Street, Guelph, ON
The "When": 7:00pm onward
"The Who": Roger, Pete, John, and Keith, originally. (Please forgive me; I couldn't resist)
The actual "Who": You! And hopefully your loving and supportive spouse or significant other, who I'm sure would love to meet the folks you spend your weeknights and Sundays with.
The fine print: The Social is BYOB, and please bring a snack for the food table.
See you there!
Your Weekend Plans
Here's a quick news rundown on the Guelph-area cycling world, including some suggestions on how and where to spend your time:
- This weekend is the Toronto International Bicycle Show. Vendors, test rides, and more, all under one roof.
- If you don't feel like driving to downtown Toronto, finding parking, and waiting in line to wade through the throng of industry reps (can you tell where I stand on this topic?) come and see me at Speed River Bicycle! SRB is having our annual "Sale into Spring" event featuring killer deals on clothing, shoes, helmets, bikes, and more! For more info, see speedriver.com or drop by.
- Paris to Ancaster announced this week that several UCI Continental teams will take to the start line at this year's 26th edition. See the full press release here at CXMagazine.com.
And that's the show! Stay tuned for another newsletter next week. If you have questions about any of the above, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
