We are switching to a new and better mailing program.
All who were members last year and those on Joanne’s women’s list have been subscribed to the new list.
We have linked CCNBikes to the new service. As members register on CCNBikes, they are automatically subscribed. Some of you already have, and it is retroactive.
We want to take the opportunity to house clean, but don’t want to loose anyone. To ensure we didn’t miss you or to adjust your preferences please enter your email address in the Subscribe form on this site. If you are already subscribed to the new list, you will receive a link where you can adjust your preferences. Otherwise, of course, you will be subscribed. You can also sign up from our Facebook page.
We have set up a group for Joanne’s women’s rides and placed all female members on it. (If a couple shares the same email address and both are members, that email address will be on the list.)
We are also experimenting with a group for Time Trial results and might send weekly results only to that group. That would allow those of you not interested to opt out.
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.
The race results sub-system now responds to different screen sizes.
It’s been tested on my small Android phone, a Samsung tablet, at 1152 x 864 (on Linux) and at 1680 x 1050 (on Windows).
It still needs some tweaking – especially the search forms when displayed on the larger screens.
Please let me know if you find any problems with layout or usability.
It’s still a work in progress, but should adapt better to mobile devices.
Also, there can be multiple header images. The image is chosen at random every time a page loads or when you click on the header. If you have any featuring club members or local rides, please let me (email@example.com) have them. Bear in mind that I have to crop them to approx. 1140 × 350 (i.e, wide and skinny) and I think 2MB is the max size for upload.
Some of you are concerned about the sizing of the jerseys that we are ordering. The samples are no longer at Runner’s Den so here is the Sugoi sizing chart to help you choose. The style we are ordering is Evolution Sugoi calls it “Semi-Fit” meaning it is not a tight fitting race jersey not a baggy relaxed fit style.
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.
Cycling friends: Be aware that at the bottom of Lindenwood hill there is fresh tar and gravel. SLOW DOWN. Continues to next corner. Dusty too.
In case you didn’t see it on Facebook or our bulletin board, here is a link to the details of a new Ontario Time Trial series for 2017.
