OBC Social, Wednesday, October 17th at 7:00 p.m.

Allison Lampi (Infinit Nutrition/Cyclepower Women's Cycling Team) and Jenny Trew, will speak passionately about women's cycling at the regional and international level. After attending this session, you will have gained a perspective from a local rider and team manager (and OBC member), with examples from local and international experiences (with input from a number of local female riders), on the challenges, opportunities and successes of the current women's bike racing scene.
To learn about Allison or her team, visit www.infinitcycling.com.

Doors open at 7:00 p.m.  Alison's presentation will start at about 7:30 p.m.   It takes place at 78 Lisgar St., the HMCS Naval Officers' Mess, just across the street from the south entrance to City Hall.  There is parking beside the building.   Look for the big black cast iron anchor in front of the three story house.  Buzz the door bell on the veranda to be let it.  We hope to see you there!

Sunday ride notice

The Touring Director will not be at Billings Bridge to hand out route maps and organize groups for the Sunday ride at 10 a.m. on October 7. If you are planning to ride that day, be sure you print a map in advance, and find the speed group you want to ride with. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour 2013 Logo

The RLCT committee is looking for a new motif/ logo to use on the various marketing and promotion items. We are asking that you submit your ideas by November 1st to the Club Office.  All designs must be in two colours only (black plus one colour) and should be gender neutral.  Designs should include the text Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour or RLCT, as well as Ottawa Bicycle Club or OBC and the dates June 8th and 9th 2013. While hand drawn submissions are acceptable, a vector file is preferred. 

The designer of the selected concept will receive a free application or equivalent value, to the RLCT 2013 .

Sunday rides: 10 a.m. start

Starting Sunday, October 7 and for the rest of the season, the OBC Sunday rides will depart from Billings Bridge at 10 a.m.
