Holy Crackers do we ever have a jam packed week for you! We are offering 4 rides this week as detailed below. Super excited to announce our first Women’s ride of the year which we are calling WOW! Women On Wheels. This Friday night ride is a social paced ride. All levels welcome. Ladies, don’t miss out! Weather calls are made by 5:00pm day of the ride.
Monday, August 3rd 6:00pm : Skills Night
Monday Night Skills is a 1 hour ride where we work on Bike Handling Skills. Seeing as we were rained out last week, we will try again this week with the same programming of learning pace lines, echelon riding and cornering. Those that showed up to the start last week got to enjoy a 90 minute Q+A with ride leaders Brent and Janet- lucky them!
All members welcome, this is a great night for riders of all levels to learn or brush up on these 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

Thursday, August 6th, 6:00pm : Dirty Thursday
We had a great turnout to the first Dirty Thursday. 7 riders of different experience levels came out to enjoy some of Northumberland’s finest gravel roads. Let’s do it all over again this week! New to gravel? Curious about off road? Don’t hesitate to come out and give this a try. A gravel capable bike will be required. This No-Drop ride will have an anticipated average speed around 21-23kph. (We were slower last week to accommodate a gravel newbie -that was me, your chatty Comms Director!- and everyone was cool with that)
Ride Leader: Pete Hennessy

Friday August 7th : 6:00pm WOW! Women’s Night
Welcome to our first Women’s ride of the year- WoW! (Women On Wheels) This will be a no-drop road ride whose pace will adapt to the slowest rider. Suitable for all levels, don’t be shy to come out and join the other female members of the Club for an enjoyable cruise around the area. We’ll do a bit of climbing along Danforth, whip it down Gully followed by Station Road, out to the Wicklow Boat launch then head back to town along the flats. This ride will be a great opportunity to meet new people and enjoy the company of some familiar faces.
