Volunteers Needed For Tom Jehlicka Criterium

This is a Cobourg Cycling Club request for volunteers for the TJ Crit Saturday, August 2, 2014.

The TJ Crit is staged at the Diamond Head Industrial Mall, in Cobourg’s East End, by the time trial start.

We are just a little less than a month out. Typically we need 15-20 helpers.

We will need corner marshalls, registration help, set up help and of course tear down help.

Somewhere along the line, we will need some camera sharps to take lessons from Rob Naish on timing the event.

Please contact Greg Cushing at tjcrit@cobourgcyclingclub.com for details.

Thanks for your support,

G

Call for participants: 100km Charity Bike Ride Event: August 23rd

Tyler-and-MeThere is something for everyone–a swim, a walk or a bike ride. That’s where we come in! To raise funds for Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy research, Jesse’s Journey is organizing a 100k bike ride around Rice Lake for Saturday August 23rd. It’s an important event for fellow club member Sharon Lynn Weese whose 16-year old nephew Tyler Lynn suffers from this disease. Sharon is hoping that we can get as much participation as possible and raise both funds and awareness.

About Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy
Duchenne MD is a fatal disease that only affects boys, symptoms usually appearing before age 6. Those affected are typically wheelchair-bound by age 10-12. Life expectancy is approximately 25 years and there is no cure. A club member, Sharon Lynn-Weese’s 15-year old nephew Tyler Lynn has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. Sharon will be participating in the 100k Ride and her nephew in the 6k Walk portion in his wheelchair.

For more information, or to Register to participate, visit Brian Connor’s Rice Lake Challenge While no entry fee is required, a minimum of $100 funds raised per participant would be greatly appreciated.
