TNR – Tuesday Night Races:

Our Tuesday Night Race series remains at the heart of our activities for 2019.  

Usually riding out of the Condie Nature Refuge, we’ll be making use of a variety of courses and formats over the season. Check out the 2019 Road Schedule to see what’s planned for the night.  Our one, two and three hill courses are returning and there’s a flat course too.  

Condie is a beautiful post-race location to socialize and share some laughs. Bring your choice of recovery snack/drink and let’s get to know each other better!

Thursday Night Adventure Rides (No Drop):

Looking for an adventure or just want to practice riding in a group? New to 2019, our Thursday Night Adventures will be no-drop group rides.  Each week a different RCC ride leader will lead the group on a route of their choosing (posted in advance).  Large groups will be split with a staggered start.  This will provide a great regular ride for seasoned veterans and a safe starting spot for riders new to the club.  

Special Events:

Spring Reliability Test

Dust off your equipment. Pump up your tires. It’s time to go back outside. Riding followed by a social lunch.

Kill Bill Hill Climb Challenge

This event on June 22 pays homage to Bill Kinash, a foundational member and builder of RCC. Over 30 years ago, Bill rode to Lumsden where he climbed the old highway hill 68 times before riding home! To honour his epic day, we’re challenging riders to see how many laps they can complete. Nothing says fun like hill repeats… see you there!

Special TNRs:

Criterium

Fast laps on a safe, fun circuit. Location TBD. 

Sprint Night

Back for a 3rd year, heats of 4 will race a short course with the top/bottom two riders moving on to the A side/B side brackets. Everyone will get the same number of races. This is a chance to practice sprinting and for the big engines to finally hand it to the skinny climbing specialists! Social to follow.

City Championships

Same old race, but this time for all the marbles.

Gravel Nights

In recognition of the growing popularity of gravel racing, one Tuesday every month will be designated a gravel race night. Find out more about what the Gravel Committee has in store here.

Provincial Championships:

RCC is hosting the Sask Cup Road Provincials TT and Criterium on the weekend of July 6 and 7.  Come out for a weekend of great racing!
