Hello IGCC members!

This year, we are hoping that you, the members, will help us to create two monthly club rides that members can participate in during the course of the month: one ride will be for all members; the other will be kid-friendly so that people can also participate with their kids. We have come up with the rides for the first two months of the year (discussed below) … but after that, we are looking for input from you! It can be a themed ride that fits with a day within the month, a specific route, a Strava shape ride or anything else that comes to mind. The sky’s the limit! We are asking that you send us your ideas via email and then prior to the beginning of each month, we will decide on the two ride and send an email out to all members. You will have the entire month to do the ride … or if you just can’t make it happen during the month, that’s okay. Do it the next month or another month; we are just hoping people will finish all 12 rides. But this will only be as successful as you make it! We want your ideas, your creativity, and your commitment to this fun event.

And for those that do each monthly ride, not only will you get bragging rights, but we will have a monthly draw prize (proof is required that you did the challenge😉) and should you do all the rides leading up to our year-end banquet (which will likely be held in November), you will have be named at the banquet for the achievement … with of course the promise to do the ride in December :).

So for the month of January, we are making it easy for you: get on a bike and ride a minimum of 10 km. It can be indoors or outdoors; just get on a bike! For kids, it can be any distance.

For February, in keeping with the Valentine’s Day tradition, we are asking people to come up with their best heart-shaped route and log it on your phone or on Strava. The best heart will win the monthly prize. Kids can do this as well; their heart will just likely be a lot smaller.

We are hoping that you will commit to this 12-month ride event and we are asking you to let us know that you’re in! You can email us at info@interiorgrasslandscycling.com That email address is also where you can send your ideas! We are looking forward to hearing from you and participating with you over this next year!

Your IGCC Board of Directors

PS: we are also looking at creating a place this website where we will have routes mapped out. Stay tuned for more details!

Tonight’s RR CANCELLED due to severe thunderstorms

Tonight’s (August 2) Club Championship Road Race is cancelled due to severe thunderstorm warnings. There is already lighting in the area. The current plan is to reschedule for next week rather than the scheduled criterium. Watch the web site for the official update.

On-line store re-opened for IGCC kit

We are re-opening the IGCC online Kit store! We have had a number of people ask how they can order a kit or order more items, so this is your chance. Charlene will have fit kits at Cycle Logic again, starting Friday July 27, if people want to try jerseys and shorts (other items not available for fit but are available to purchase). And if you have specific questions, you can connect with Charlene on Facebook or at the bike shop. The on-line store will be open until August 3rd (even though it may say longer currently). This is to ensure we can get the items in a timely fashion. Here’s the link:
