Alrighty, I’ve gotten out of the habit of writing these over the winter, but never fear, for I shall be writing you you weekly from here and for the rest of the riding year!
Club Updates and News:
As mentioned previously, we are excited to welcome Velofix Edmonton(https://www.velofix.com/) as a new sponsor for the club. Please have a look at previous post for details.
All club kit has been updated with new logos, and the cutoff date for this batch is April 26th if you want your kit before race season begins. You can order all year but typically the first batches of the year is the cheapest as we take advantage of bulk pricing. All old stock has also been drastically reduced. http://www.ertc.org/teamkit/
