2017 Jersey order!!!

Attention members – many have asked “How can I get my very own Woodstock Cycling Club jersey?”  Well now is your chance!  We have set up a “CS Direct” order with Champion Systems. Click on the link below, set up an account, order what ever you like from the store, select the shipping option (to avoid shipping charges select group option, when your order arrives it will be available for pick-up from Chris F. or at Pedal Power Bicycles).

https://custom2.champ-sys.com/teamstore/?WoodstockCyclingClub2017

The window for ordering will be from February 17th to April 1st

The order should arrive 4-5 weeks after the closing date.

The most economical option would be the “Tech” range, but the order is set up so that you can select other levels of jerseys, as well as options for shorts.  There’s even a BMX style option for the hardcore riders.

If you have any questions, email the club.

Thursday Road Rides

Lets try and start the Thursday evening road rides this week (April 14th). Meet behind Pedal Power, ride leaves at 6pm. Casual pace (28 to 30) for the first few weeks, and only enough daylight for shorter distances (30 to 45). If you have a road bike and would like to see what group riding is like, but not sure of your fitness, this is your chance to get started.

Pancake Ride March 20th

Looking at the calendar, we’ve decided to have the annual Pancake Ride on March 20th.  As per tradition we will meet behind Pedal Power at 9am, ride out to Jakeman’s, book some tables, maybe do a short loop, then eat some delicious pancakes with maple syrup.  Any bike, your willing to ride on sloppy gravel roads, will do.  Bring a helmet, some money for food and a smile.

The AGM and The New Executive

Just a quick update to let everyone know…..

Although we didn’t get as much of a turn out as we hoped for, last night’s AGM was a fun night as usual.  Outgoing President, Thomas, gave a presentation on the state of the club, and as expected 2015 was a great success.

President for 2016 will be Dallas Moesker.

Thanks Thomas for your many years of work on the executive of the WCC!  Even though you’re spending most of your time in the big city, we know you’ll still be leaned on for advice and guidance.

Vice-President will now be Chris Pollett.

Secretary and Treasurer will continue to be held by Brian Walsh and Jody Mitchell.

Marcy Dibbley has agreed to stay on for another year running the Youth Program.  Thanks Marcy!

Media will continue to be Tom Redekop, you’ll hear more from him once Ski/Snowboard season ends.

The new Trail Maintenance Chair will be Jamie McPherson.  Thank you, Alistair for your hard work building the last few years.

We have a new Race Director, Dave Coeck.  Previous race director and long time executive member was Ryan Ludington.  Thanks Ryan, for your many years and many successful races.

And last but not least, I (Chris Ferrell) will return as Touring Chair and general pain in the backside!

2016 looks to be an exciting year of continued improvements to the WCC.  The first event on the schedule is the annual Pancake Ride in March, the exact date to be announce soon.  Until then, Cheers and Ride Safe!

Halloween Ride

Attention Goblins and Ghouls!

Our next scheduled ride is our Halloween Ride on October 24th at The Pines.

The ride starts at 7:30 in the parking lot.  This is a MTN Bike night ride at The Pines, so lights are required.  If you don’t have lights, stop in at Oxford Source for Sports, Pedal Power (or your local shop) and buy some, or just duct tape a flashlight to your bike if you have to!  Do as many laps as you want at the pace you want, and enjoy the view of all the lights floating through the trails, it’s very spooky.  This is open to members of all ages and costumes are encouraged, but not required.

That Dam ‘Cross Race

It’s been a long time since there has been a cyclocross race in the City of Woodstock, but thanks to club member Michael Jaffray along with Michael Aston and a group of volunteers, they successfully had one at Pittock on Saturday October the 3rd.  This race was not put on by the WCC, but we were happy to help and support it.

It was typical cross weather…cold, light rain and east winds gusting at 50 kph!  The course was mostly grass with the usual barriers and run ups.  A favorite was the beach section with deep sand at the entry and exit.

The club was well represented with many members competing and members cheering everyone on.  Members racing were:  Maureen O’Hare, Amy White and Marcy Dibbley in Masters Women, Taylor Ford in E4, Roy Andrigo, Chris Ferrell, Dallas Moesker and Chris Pollett in M3
