April 12 - 18 Update

Jakroo Storefront Opening Monday

Velocity Cycling Club 2019 KitThanks to everyone who has let us know which new kit items they hope to order this year.

It looks like we’ll get the 25+ quantity discount for our bibs and jerseys. We’re close to the 6+ quantity discounts for most of the other items.

You have until NOON on Friday (April 12) to complete your pre-requests: 2019 Clothing Request Form [CLICK HERE]

Then on Monday, our Jakroo Storefront will go live! The store will be open for 2 weeks to place your real order. At the close of the 2-week window, Jakroo will confirm our price discounts based on our actual orders. Then they will begin production of each and every order, sending them directly to you when completed. This will take about 2-3 weeks.

You can find the Storefront link on our own website ON THE CLOTHING PAGE.

If all goes well, I’m hoping we can all kit-up in the new design just in time for our own club’s races (ITT and Crit) on the May long weekend.

Spring Series Again on Sunday

Volunteers are needed to marshal the Spring Series on April 14 and 28th. Without enough marshals there will be no racing. I’ll be sweeping through the B group this week to ensure everyone races fair and safe. Please, NO CENTRE-LINE VIOLATIONS!!

Sign-up as a volunteer on the Spring Series Signup Sheet [CLICK HERE].

April Club Meeting Next Thursday

This month’s meeting is Thursday April 18 at 7pm, in the MEC Downtown Community Boardroom.

Please join us to help firm-up this years riding schedule.

Argyll Velodrome 81″ Cup Sunday April 28

The annual 81″ Cup Track Meet starts at 9am on April 28.

This is a fun day of racing, with no one allowed to race in a gear larger than 81 inches – a 48×16 gear combination.

This will be better than the Spring Series – because you get only one chance to win a Spring Series race. In the 81″ Cup, you’ll have 4 or 5 races to try out your winning tactics!

Racing on the velodrome is also much more spectator-friendly than the Spring Series … so come on out and watch if you won’t be racing!

What’s your biggest road block this season?

Remember to book a Friday Quick Spin Coaching Call this season. I’m keeping most Friday afternoons open to have a quick chat.

Saturday’s Weekend Ride

11am near the old Colchester Elementary School location – 23358 Township Rd 520, Sherwood Park.

Coach Kevin is facilitating another ABA Learn To Race Clinic this day. But you will find plenty of experienced club members ready to lead this ride.

 

Exercise in the morning before your brain figures out what you’re doing.
