Ok. so it’s been way too long since we last chatted, I miss you all! I don’t have any excuses other than laziness as to why I haven’t been doing these. Anyways… Another great week, great attendance, and if the Facebook pictures are any indication, great drinking! The last couple of weeks saw the Bowness Stage Race as well as the FREE/ PRW Race Series go and ERTC definitely was well represented there, with Kelly MacGregor upgrading into Cat4, Andrew Linklater upgrading into Cat4, Keith Pask upgrading into Cat4, and Graham Watts earning his upgrade into Cat2.

Alright the important juicy bits(updates)!

Ride Updates:

  1. Next week’s intervals will be the last one, as these rides will be switching to cross rides. Road season is almost over with no more ABA Road Races left on the calendar, and a smattering of non-sanctioned events.

  2. Saturday’s ride will be switched to the iWill ride mentioned above, please make note of the different start time and location. There will be no other official ride option, however you are free to organize your own. There is no cost, however donations to iWill are appreciated (and you get a rad sticker!)

  3. Sunday's Cruiser ride is cancelled. Instead we will have Jakob’s fun Time Trial as an option: https://www.facebook.com/events/110021369698874/ no entry fee, show up and tackle a fun little time trial as a test! Solo out, and partners coming back. Partners will be randomly chosen, prizes will be candy! Open to everyone. You may drive out, or we will be leaving Transcend at 9:15 (this will leave LOTS of time to get there.)
