Goulais Ave Hill Climb – 7:00pm Wednesday May 3 – McMeeken Arena

Come one, come all to the revival of the great Goulais Ave Hill Climb.  We’re starting at 7pm this week to give more time for various folks to make it.  Meet at the McMeeken Arena.  We’ll send people off one at a time, and I’ll conscript several of you to be timers (don’t worry, timers will have a chance to ride too!)

Though it’s a hard climb, you don’t need any specific equipment or skills.  I’ve even done it on a fat bike in the past!  Just come on out and have a good time regardless of skill, fitness, or equipment.

See the Events section on the Road Calendar for more information.

Remember that you must be a member of the club to ride.  Membership is only $30.  I’d appreciate it if you purchased your membership prior to the ride, but if you’re unable, please show up early and I’ll accept your registration.

Repairs will be in progress starting today Sunday, November 6, 2016 at the Cold Water Creek bridge on the Red Pine System at Hiawatha Highlands. Please be aware that decking is being removed and passage across the creek is not recommended for your own safety and to prevent further bridge damage. Please watch out for volunteers and repair equipment when riding on the Red Pine trails. The plan is to have the bridge reopened on Sunday, November 13th.
