Open TT Series Winding Down for 2016

There are two Open TTs left in the 2016 season - September 1 & September 8.
 
I have tentatively scheduled the "Last Chance" 40km TT for Sunday September 18th, on the South Gower course. But for this to happen, I'll need at least two more volunteers (turn around and start/finish line). If you can help, let me know (http://www.ottawabicycleclub.ca/contact/Racing+Events+Director). I'll post a go/no-go on the club's website by September 15th.
  
Final standings will be computed afterwards, with awards at the November social.

Tuesday Night Ride Reminder

As the riding season moves closer to September, the days are getting shorter. The sun this Tuesday will set around 8:00pm. If you intend to ride on Tuesdays, you are strongly encouraged to add a light to your bike. A flat can extend an outing long enough to ride in the dark. Lights are not expensive, easy to install and are available at all good bike shops.

OBC Introduction to Track Cycling Sessions

OBC Introduction to Track Cycling Sessions
Track cycling is an extremely valuable skill to learn - it develops many skills that transfer to road cycling, but most importantly, "It’s a blast!”. You may think track riding is just for the racers, cyclo-sportifs, the “really fast guys”. The truth is the vast majority of track riders are recreational riders. Riders range in age from 10 to 93, with 40-70 year olds being heavily represented, about 30% women. There are whole families that ride together. You can ride on your own, but it’s much more fun to ride in a pace line with other riders. You don’t even need your own track bike… Tracks have nice track bikes you can rent for a modest fee.
