August rides

Hi, everyone!


As for August we havea couple of rides coming up!

We are planning on a road ride from Magrath to Del Bonita on Aug 17. We will try to provide a sag wagon as we did for the Waterton ride. The meeting spot is at Safeway at 0815 and the plan is to ride out of Magrath around 0900. Please RSVP if you will be riding and if you are able and willing to carpool to Magrath.

Total distance will add up to ~96km.

 

We are also having another ice-cream ride on Aug 24. As the last time - the ride is slow paced and ids are more than welcome! Just show up at 10:00 am at the Nicholas Sheran parking lot and enjoy a Sunday stroll through the park with a Dairy Queen visit afterwards!

 

An e-mail was sent out to everyone as well.

 

Hope to see you out on the rides!

 

Cheers!

Dear fellow cyclists!


The time has come to get the long promised road ID's. As we thought everyone might want to write their own message, you have a chance to customize yours! Please check your e-mail or just send us a message with whatever you want to be written on the wristband.

Everyone has 5 lines with 24 characters per line to play with (not including your name - so reverve a line for that). If you happen not to reply or just want the generic, it will look like this:

FirstName LastName
123 Street
City, AB
Phone number

 

Hope to hear from everyone soon!

 

Simply ride.
