Mitchell Thomas Throws the Gauntlet Down in the Giro di YEG

Head out just north of Ardrossan and try besting Mitchell’s COVID-crushing time in our Prologo Tappa.

Prizes are up celebrating Italian food and drink.

It’s all described on the 2020 Giro di YEG event page.

Keep sharing and spreading the word to our whole cycling community. It’s probably the closest we’ll get to full-on racing this season.

ABA Releasing Return-To-Play Procedures

Your club executive will be having a virtual meeting this next Wednesday to determine if there’s a reasonable way forward.

Would you be interested in limited-sized group rides any time soon? Please let us know with a quick email: coaching@velocitycyclingclub.ca

The procedures still mandate the minimum 2m physical distancing. That’s a tough wheel to follow, because it really means paceline riding only. It’s not a social group ride.

Velodrome Re-Opening

Next week the Argyll Velodrome will re-open with strict Return-To-Play Procedures. No drop-ins allowed. You’ll have to pre-book a 2-hour training slot, limited to no more than 6 riders at a time. No clubhouse and washroom access will be allowed.

I’ll share more details once the velodrome has published them. If you’re interested in learning more sooner, please send me an email: coaching@velocitycyclingclub.ca

A workout in public is never more important than public health. Exercise is especially important for physical and mental health during this anxious time, but it must be done in a way that doesn’t endanger others in your community – Melissa Perry, professor of environmental and occupational health at George Washington University
