November 16 – 22 Weekly Update

Club Equipment Collection

Did you borrow any of our club equipment this year (and maybe even last year)? CX bikes, ZIPP race wheels, Power Tap wheels etc?

With snow on the ground and the road/cross season finished, now is the time to return everything.

Please email Ed Heacock ( to arrange for a drop off/pick up.

Job Well Done Mike van den Ham!!

Our previous club coach, Mike van den Ham, has done it again!

This past weekend Peterborough, ON, hosted the 2018 Canadian Cyclocross Championships. And for the second straight year, Mike powered his way to victory as Canadian Elite Men’s Cyclocross Champion!

I’m sure I can say on behalf of all Velocity athletes, thanks for the inspiration Mike!

Lady Luck favours the prepared. One championship could have been lucky … but I’m sure it was more than that last year. Certainly two championships in a row mean Mike’s training is ticking off all the right boxes! Superb job Mike!

Annual General Meeting on November 26

We have our mandatory AGM set for Monday, November 26, 7-8:30pm.

One key item we’ll need to discuss is a new riding kit design for 2019. Do you even want a new kit design? If so, how much different? Come have your say.

Giant Bicycles Cafe (9835-63 Ave) serves as our host location. This will be a great time to check out the new cafe if you haven’t done so yet. And the Club will serve you coffee and snacks to too. Maybe a bottled brew too.

If you have anything special you’d like to discuss for our 2019 season, please email your thoughts to Club President, Ed Heacock:
