Grey County is paving Grey Rd 17 from Highway 6 to Wolesley this year.
The “new” road will have the standard 3.5 meters of travel way and 1.25 meters of paved shoulder where the 1.3 meters of gravel used to be.
For a week or two there will be detours using concession 21.
And, moving forward most Grey County roads will have paved shoulders when they are reconstructed.
We are very pleased to learn that former club member Robert Starrs is now in college but still very competitive in cycling and is racing at the elite level. Robert has a GoFundMe page for offsetting some of his many extra costs associated with cycling at this level. If you are interested in supporting Robert in his cycling, the following is a link to Robert’s GoFundMe page: https://www.gofundme.com/thecyclingpursuit Go Robert Go!!
Now that the pre-orders have been picked up, people that didn’t pre-order can still buy jerseys, shorts or bibs that were extras. If you are interested, go to Runner’s Den and try them on. Please pay by cash or cheque.
New OSCC Kit
OSCC has a new logo and a new jersey/bib/short design (or kit). If you are interested in purchasing any of these, head down to Runner’s Den in Owen Sound where you can try on sample sizes before you buy. The sample kits will be at Runner’s Den until August 25, so you better get down there before they are gone. Once you find the size that fits, put your name on the list at the Den and indicate whether you want a jersey, shorts or bibs. Also indicate the sizes and gender you wish to purchase. Depending on numbers purchased, the price of jerseys will be around $50 to $60 while bibs will come in between $70 and $80. As soon as we know how many to order we can let you know the price.
Concession 8, the road that goes south from Desboro through Mooresburg, is being resurfaced. It is currently torn up and barricaded from Side Road 6 to Side Road 8, which is just south of Mooresburg. It can still be crossed using Side Road 7.
It will remain a gravel (tar and chip) road according to the Chatsworth Township announcement, so it will be a while before it is ride-able again.
Please note that for the remainder of the season the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday training and recreational rides will leave at 17:30.
And, although Monday Sept 5th is a holiday, there will still be a ride.
Here a few (poor quality) pictures from the War on the Shore criterium.
Robert and Kylie Starrs, Andy Barton, “Woody” Woods, Matt Barfoot and Laura Robinson all competed. I hope I didn’t miss anyone.
Here are a few pictures from the June 6, 2016 TT.
Unfortunately, mother nature is not co-operating with us this spring! The women’s rides will now be delayed yet another week. Long range looks promising for April 19th and 20th.
Count on women’s rides starting April 19th. Be sure to get your membership prior to this date. It is imperative to be a member before participating in OSCC events for insurance reasons.
Hmmm – Firefox wants me to write cancelled, Thunderbird wants canceled. So we now have a mixture 😉
