Tour D'Abernethy Update and More
We wanted to update the membership on the 3rd Annual Tour D’Abernethy 2022 with our goal of having the largest turnout yet for this great charity event.
The charity proceeds go to Camp Ooch, which recently merged with Camp Trillium to become Campfire Circle, and was a special focus for Jim Abernethy as they provide support to children with cancer. Campfire Circle
Two significant changes include:
- Date moved out one week to August 27th
- We are adding a gravel option for 2022
Our ride options are as follows:
+/- 120 km
+/- 80 km
+/- 70 km
Catering for the event will be Justin’s Oven which should increase the overall “fun quotient”. We’ll be providing a menu and asking about dietary restrictions closer to the event as well as the link to make a donation to the cause. We will open the ride up to non-VCC members but we will need to get approval from the OCA for each non-VCC rider.
We’ll keep you posted on updates but please sign up on the calendar on the website by scrolling across to August 27th and also get this event in your personal calendar.
Two other matters to update on:
- Given the large demand for our Monday ride, we have now added a second ride to the calendar. Clips and Tips will remain at a social pace targeting 40km distance. The second ride is a tempo paced ride between 50-65km. Please sign up accordingly.
- St Joseph’s Hospital for the “Cycle 4 St Joe’s” on Sunday, Sept 25th. This is our local Hospital so let’s show our support. If anyone would like to join you can register until Sept 25th at Sign up for Ride 4 St Joe’s.
