This week’s weekly update is totally late – but hey it was a holiday Monday! Tuesday Intervals was a great success with the most people I’ve ever seen out on a Research Park session (10 I believe?) and it was a great session for learning how to corner at speed and increasing fitness. Fortunately for the wildfires but unfortunate for us, it rained every day after that right up until Monday, forcing a lot of us to stay inside or go for a shower on our bicycles. Please check our website for the weather policy.
Another great week for ERTC, with amazing weather throughout the week! We had strong representation at the Velocity Stage this weekend, along with a staggering 13 ladies from our club and others joining us for our 2nd Annual “Broads on Bikes with Bison” Women’s Ride! 8 ladies went the full distance of 100km, with the remainder opting for the 50km route, and the winner of the jersey and shorts that Revolution Cycle donated to us was Erin Slemp, a rider joining us for this ride from another club. As for the races, a more detailed race report will be forthcoming, but I’d like to congratulate Brandon Langille on upgrading to Category 4, as well as Jakob Claffey and Spencer King on upgrading to Category 3.
Oh god, who let Albert write this week’s update?! Another great week for ERTC, which saw soaring temperatures for our midweek rides, the “graduation” of our Learn to Ride participants, and the most people I’ve ever seen on a Saturday in recent memory on our little jaunt to Devon and back. My personal highlight was the final spring series race. More on that later, with the race report.
Main thing this week is volunteering. Members, new and old, please consider this - it is but a few hours of time and the community/club literally depends on it. This is the best way to jump into the club with both feet, meet each other, and build a vibrant and engaged club. ANY MEMBER CAN AND SHOULD VOLUNTEER. Ok, enough shaming until I get to the volunteer sections below.....
