Good Day Riders,
I hope everyone is gearing up for a fun Canada Day Weekend Celebration. Weekend Programs have gone out into all the mail boxes on the Island. If you have not received one we have extra Canada Day Programs at the Shack.
In celebration of our great nation and cycling, I have created a fun event. Check out the details below. A few of the riders are going to combine the Poker Ride with the GeoCaching!
Some of us are thinking good friends, good food and a good ride – starting off with the Pancake Breakfast at the Fire Hall them dropping in to one of the BBQs for lunch then the wine and oysters at the Southend Winery :-)
What does your custom ride look like? Remember you can divide your ride up over the two days. Heaven forbid, you may wish to drive around!
Please email or give me a call if you have any questions.
