Cycling Skills Clinics

OSCC member and coach Fred Zottl will be holding cycling skills clinics for our members.

Please see the  Skills flyer document for more detail.


TT Locations

You’ll no longer have to email the webmaster or race director to ask where we meet for a time trial. The race results database already had the potential to hold that information. Now, driven by that database, it’s visible here.




Grey County Cycling & Trails Master Plan

Grey County Cycling & Trails Master Plan – Public Consultation to close August 14

Grey County has been developing a cycling and trails master plan over the past number of months. In the spring an open house at the county building allowed interested parties to view maps and make suggestions. Bryan Plumstead, Manager of Tourism – Grey County, sent an email on July 31 stating:

“Grey County is moving forward with our Draft Cycling & Trails Master Plan, and is notifying all partners that public consultation will close August 14, 2020.

Comments and feedback can be made through an on-line form available on our Master Plan Initiatives Page,  or can be sent to the undersigned.”

You can review and comment on the master plan through the link in Bryan Plumstead’s message: Master Plan Initiatives Page, This is your opportunity to share your views and influence our riding in Grey County.

Also, more recently related to our first OSCC gravel ride, there was correspondence with Sarah Johnson, Intermediate Planner/Forestry-Trails Coordinator, who shared:

“Currently, we are considering some different options with regard to trail maintenance, we have not confirmed at this time what those might be. In the past, we would stone dust a section on an annual basis, we have also more recently re-graded the trail, without the addition of extra materials.

I would appreciate knowing what our trail users think, if you had some suggestions please feel free to pass them along.”

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.
