Monday, August 24th 6:00pm : Skills Night
Monday Night Skills is a 1 hour ride where we work on Bike Handling Skills. Last week we were rained out, fingers crossed for better weather this week. We continue to work on finessing our echelon, pace-line and cornering skills. This week we will split into 2 speed groups and move a little faster.
All members welcome, this is a great night for riders of all levels to learn or brush up on their skills. Don’t miss it! All that is required is a road bike in good working order, helmet and water bottles
Ride Leader : Brent Aquino

Tuesday, August 25th 6:30pm : Tuesday TT
We had a solid turnout for our first TT of the season despite the drizzle at the start and ominous skies over the lake. Are you ready to race against the clock?? Due to changes to OCA regulations, we will have our fastest leave first and slowest leave last. Not sure where you are are in the slowest to fastest? Our TT Team will assign start times based on your historical times. If this is your first TT with our Club, you will be placed towards the end until you have established a time on this course. IMPORTANT NOTE: Pre-Registration via CycleClubApp is required for participation. You will not be permitted to ride if you show up at the start without having pre-registered. Don’t have the app? Download it today at www.cycleclubapp.com, the Apple Store or Google Play and get set up. Not sure what a TT is or how to prepare for one? Be sure to read Coach Greg’s TT 101 article available here: http://cobourgcyclingclub.com/2020/tt-101-with-coach-greg/
