2020 season winding down

2020 Season Winding Down

It’s been a challenging year in many ways, one which we all have experienced. Cycling has proven to be safe, with proper social distancing practices, and not just a physical release but a mental health release and that is why we all love this sport.

VCC will now wind down it’s formal ride schedule but will continue to monitor the weather forecasts and may announce individual rides periodically throughout the remainder of this year.  We will continue, at least for the next few weeks, the early bird version of Lumen’eers departing at 5:30pm from the parking lot to the east of the Old Mill. 

Despite the challenges of COVID we feel the club, with the support of its membership, has maximized its ride schedule opportunities. It all started with the April thru August monthly challenges, a derivation of the cancelled TFK ride in support of Camp Ooch with the inaugural Tour d’Abernethy ride, the Steve Hancock Memorial Ride and finishing up in October from Albion Hills with Tanya’s Ride in support of BIST.

So we ticked all the boxes : Ride.Give.Live

Looks like our typical year end get together may be in jeopardy but we will be reaching out to all of you on this one in December.

Fall Ride Schedule / Tanya's Ride

Late season ride schedule

We are working to extend the club cycling season with the following three ride offerings. The gravel option and Lumen’eers will start after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend:

Saturday morning

  •  Danish Pastry Ride (or similar route) will continue
  •  Gravel ride (out of town start with location advised several days before)

Wednesday evening

  • Lumen’eers returns so bring your front night light

Clips and Tips and our regular Wednesday evening rides are now closed for the season.

All rides are subject to ride captain availability and of course weather dependent. 

Please be reminded that reservations close based on the following times:
– for morning rides, sign up will close 12 hours before (night before)
– for evening rides, sign up will close 3 hours before

Tanya’s Ride For Brain Injury  – $24,000 raised and still counting

What a great day on October 3rd. The weather cooperated, we had 45 riders participating in four separate road rides (114 km, two rides of 80 km and one at 58 km) plus a gravel ride. Albion Hills Conservation Area proved to be the perfect spot for great ride routes and appropriate social distancing.
