Headwinds Cycling Club
Chief Mountain Ascent

The Chief Mountain Ascent is about a 50km ride to the Chief Mountain Border and back to our starting point. The ride to the border has 2 climbs about 8 km long with on descent about 9 km. The ride is through the scenic Rocky Mountains on a lightly travelled road in early June.

Along the ride Headwinds will provide a SAG wagon to support riders and providing water and basic snacks if needed. We plan to finish the ride with a BBQ hosted by Headwinds at the Maskinonge Picnic Area outside of the Waterton gates.

Meet at the Fairway Plaza Safeway parking lot at 8:00-8:30 and leave for the Maskinonge Picnic area at 8:30 once carpooling is arranged. Complete the ride in time for the BBQ at 2:00 .

All riders must be Members of Headwinds Cycling Club

 
Southern Alberta Summer Games

 

Here's some correspondance that we received that may be of interest to some:

Hello,

I am emailing you to introduce myself as the City of Lethbridge Southern Alberta Summer Games Regional Director. I’d love for you to pass on to your members and any other interested parties that you might know of that the 2016 Southern Alberta Summer Games will be taking place right here in Lethbridge July 6 – 9. Cycling is scheduled to take place on Thursday and Friday. The route is in the process of final approval.

The SASG is a grass-roots community festival celebrating its 47th anniversary. Every year the games put a major emphasis on mass participation, physical and social involvement for everyone, whatever age, sex or ability. Potential participation benefits include the development of individual skills and improved social attitudes.

It is a great opportunity for individuals to showcase and participate in a sport they love. It will also allow for friendly competition between competitors and communities. The cost to participate in the SASG is only $25 per person. The registration cost also includes a Team Lethbridge T-shirt.

Please note the registration deadline is Monday, June 6.  Registrants must have both sides of the form completed and come down to the Games Office on the 3rd Floor of City Hall to pay. I have attached registration forms here in case you wish to pass them along to your groups, and they are also available online.

Let’s make sure we spread the word and ensure Lethbridge has an awesome showing! Please pass this opportunity on to your members and encourage them to take advantage of the Games close proximity. The last time Lethbridge hosted the SASG was in 2006.

I have attached a registration form, a poster you could hang up and more detailed specifics about the event.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for your help spreading the word.

2016 SASG Regional Director, City of Lethbridge
