Are you thinking of going to the Penticton Training Camp this year? Then book now! The Tiki Shores will only be reserving our block of rooms until March 15. For more information, please see the event page. 

It seems like the Spring Thaw is finally coming out way. With that in mind tonight will likely be our final XC Ski night, so come on out Gold Bar Park at 7:00pm to wish the snow farewell for another year. With all the melting that is sure to happen this week, be sure to keep an eye on our twitter account for the latest about Saturday’s ride. Depending on the conditions, it could be anything from a Fatbike ride to a Road Ride!

We are also wrapping up our Indoor Training Sessions at Aerobic Power with this weeks session. Confused? This session wasn’t a part of the original plan, but it is a make-up class for one that was cancelled in February.

On a different note, our 2017 Club Sign-Up is Open and you can finally sign up with Velocity for an ABA License! If you taking part in or plan on taking part in our winter activities, please sign up for 2017 membership ASAP.
