This evening thunderstorm thing is really getting old… I guess that’s the price we paid for having a hot early spring! This week saw decent weather for our midweek rides, and our Saturday ride was very well attended by over 20 people! Sunday alas was canceled due to thunderstorms. Coming up quick is our time trial, so please sign up for volunteering, we still need lots! Remember to join our Facebook page for up to the minute updates on ride changes, cancellations, or other events. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2316916558/?fref=nf
July 17 – We are hosting a TT this summer and we need your help! I’ll let Andre Ratte do the talking: "For our July 17th ITT, things are really starting to fall into place. I now have an updated volunteer sign up list here: https://www.volunteersignup.org/DB9L8 If you want some more detail on what these positions do, please here for more details. https://goo.gl/oGeIVr
I would like to highlight that I'm looking for someone to help out before race day as the Food and Drink Coordinator. Working with me, you can assemble your own team, and will be given a budget to feed our volunteers and race officials as well as provide post-race snacks for our racers. For details on this position or any of the others on the list, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on my cell at 780-236-2350."

July 24th – Our sponsor, Revolution Cycle is hosting the Tour d’la Alberta again this year. It is a fully supported 60/100/160km ride and definitely one of the BEST options for you if you want to attempt one of these distances for the first time, as there are regular breaks for refueling and water, as well as a lunch stop. There will be a vehicle to drive you to the next break point or back to the line should you choose pull out. This is one of the biggest events of this type up here in Alberta (if not the biggest) We are making this a focus event and encouraging ALL ERTC members to attend if they can – we are getting a $15 discount on entries (use coupon code “ertctda2016”) and we will have our tent and chairs set up at the start/finish line. 2 randomly chosen registrants from ERTC (Registered before July 1st) will be refunded their races fees as part of our sponsorship as well. Our race team members will be out, as well as many of our non-racing members. You will never ride alone! I will let the event page and registration page do the rest of the talking. http://www.tourdalberta.ca/
All rides are a go!
