Shimano Recall

Further to John’s email this morning, here is a link to an article detailing the models affected and how to find your product and manufacturing code numbers.

The article goes on to say this…
“Despite their similar appearance, Shimano’s 105 chainsets are not affected by the recall, due to a cold-forged manufacturing process. Likewise, no 10-speed or 12-speed components are affected either.”






Covid-19 Update

Ontario has approved Phase 2 startup and the OCA has approved recreational rides of up to 10 cyclists.

Prior to the ride you need to join the club by going to “REGISTER NOW” on the OSCC webpage and by electronically signing the OCA Covid Waiver. The waiver can be found on the OSCC Web – Forms Page OSCC 2020 Adult and Youth waivers.

Also, physical distancing is required, a gap of 2 meters either in direction of travel for single pace line or a 2 meter gap on the diagonal for a double pace line.

Unfortunately the OCA at this point is not allowing Time Trials to occur.




Tri-Bikes – Amendment to Risk Management Plan

The OSCC executive have reviewed the Risk Management Plan as it pertains to Tri-Bikes. Although the Risk Management Plan states NO Tri-Bikes on group rides, we have agreed to allow them if you do not have an alternate road bike. The stipulation is you must not ride on the aerobars in the pack and must have easy access to your brakes at all times. It is not the intent of the OSCC to dis-allow participation on our group rides, however given the diversity of the group, e.g. skills and ability, safety is of utmost importance.
