VCC August 2 Update

I think the new website banner is working well for announcements. I hope you’ve noticed, I used it to announce the free L’Étape Edmonton entry was won by Keith Lush.

A reminder for anyone who hasn’t yet registered, the fee goes up on August 7. Make sure you don’t miss out and pay more than you need. Our discount code is VEL20 – all who use that code will be credited to Velocity in the team competition according to this schedule:

  • 135km – 8 points
  • 85km – 6 points
  • 49km – 4 points
  • Family Ride – 2 points

The more who enter with our code, the better our club’s chances to come out on top!

Saturday Club Ride

Another big 105km ride to ensure you’re ready for L’Étape. Once again leaving from Charlesworth, but this time looping around Cooking Lake and through the community on Antler Lake.

Velocity Afterburner Gravel Route Recon

As we get ready to host the inaugural Afterburner Gravel Fondo on August 20, a special Sunday ride is planned this long weekend.

Join Ed Heacock and Allan Plesniarski out in Alder Flats at 11am Sunday morning, August 6, to pre-ride the planned route.

Take a look on our Event Calendar where you’ll now see the entry for Sunday’s ride, including the Strava and GPX routes. Load up both the 56km and 105km routes so you’ll have both options handy. Everyone should be self-supporting for at least 100km of riding – fully-stocked flat repair kit, lots of food (consider using a handlebar bag) and fluids. The forecast is looking like the low 20°s and no rain. It should be a great adventure!

Edmonton MidWeek Racing – Final Countdown

There are only 3 events left on the calendar this season, as summer is quickly slipping away!

Pedalhead Road Works will be hosting the next two crits at the Research Park venue. Get out there to race on one of Edmonton’s classic crit courses used for at least the last two decades of local racing!

Then Bruce Copeland has a special urban hill climb night planned on August 23rd.

Stay on top of all the action at the Edmonton MidWeek Racing Club website!

NEW this year! We're trying out Link My Ride for sharing weekly ride details.
