RCC is on Link My Ride

Based on feedback from the club, the exec has chosen to use an app called Link My Ride to post rides and manage attendance this season.

Link My Ride is an app that is supported by Cycling Canada and they are encouraging clubs across Canada to use it. You will be able to sign up for rides and see updates like calls about weather in the system.

Please download the app, make yourself an account and then search for Regina Cycle Club and join our club on the app (the pin representing us is at College and Albert in the explore tab). When you click on the club, you’ll see a notice board and an area where club rides are listed.

New for 2023: Learn to Group Ride

RCC will be offering a 5-week learn to group ride series this spring for ANYONE who would like to learn or brush up on their skills. This series will help you to become confident riding in a group and would be good preparation for our Thursday rides.

All genders and ages are welcome. To participate, riders should have a road bike in good working order and should be confident riding on their own (e.g. able to shift gears, brake).

Each Wednesday in May we’ll meet at Save-On-Foods at Chuka and Arcola at 6:30. Experienced members of the club will briefly discuss a new skill each week and then we’ll do a ride on the service road toward White City.

We’re asking two things of members right now:

  1. Please forward this information to anyone you think might be interested. Try-a-ride will be in effect, so non-members are able to come out for a maximum of three rides on waivers before they join the club.
  2. If you’re already comfortable with group riding, please consider volunteering for one or more nights. The more experience we have on time, the easier it will be for everyone! Please contact Nicole via email at president@reginacycleclub.ca.

Mark your calendars! Sign up details to follow.

Alyssa Shaver was elected to the RCC exec for the first time to lead our 2023 women’s program. Alyssa has been a key contributor to our developing women’s program over the last couple of years and she has some great ideas for women’s programming in 2023 that I am very excited about!

The evening was also a chance to extend our thanks to a few special members of our club who have contributed years of service on the RCC executive and are now passing the torch on this year. James Korpan was president of the club for 8 years, during which time his efforts saw the club membership by ~50% and its programming expand massively. Adele Grundahl (A.K.A. Mrs. Time Trial) was RCC’s Secretary for many years before she turned her focus to spearheading RCC Women’s Program which has welcomed many new members over the last two years. Russ Down‘s work on youth development has led to some fast young folks on bikes who’ve earned big results.

And most of all thank you to all the committee members and volunteers who made our 2022 events happen, and to the riders who came out and made them successful.

Anyone who is interested in helping out with the 2023 season is invited to get in touch with our president or the appropriate VP. Whether you want to join a committee, volunteer on race day, or lead rides, reach out.

Rubber side down!
