Westport Tour May 17 - 19, 2016

New for 2016 is the Westport Tour which in fact can be considered three tours in one depending on your interests and fitness level:

It could be called The Westport-RLCT-Training Tour

Spring to Virginia April 15th - 24th 2016

Get an early start to your cycling season and join us on this year's Virginia tour.  First, we'll head to the familiar hills and valleys of Lexington, Virginia and then we'll explore new routes around Hagerstown, Maryland.  This trip will offer a little something for everyone, with cycling routes from 40 km on rolling terrain to 150 km in the mountains.  Each day you will be provided with maps, cue sheets and company to explore the beautiful scenery around these two towns.

Iceland and Continental North America Cycling Presentation with André Marier

On Wednesday, January 27th, André Marier will be in the house! His 8900 km. of trips this past year include a counter-clockwise circumnavigation of Iceland, followed by a 7700 km North America jaunt, starting in B.C., going south (including Montana), zig-zagging across the continental divide more than a half dozen times, then heading across diagonally south and east to the deep south states. He then went back up through the east coast states, into Illinois, entering Canada west of Lake Erie, then came home to Ottawa. How could you not like that? Come see the man who tours with a folding, belt driven, internal gear hub bicycle. André's solo journeys are amazing, as is his presentation style. And, you have got to catch his great sense of humour.
