Clothing / Re: Club Kit for 2019
« Last post by Guy Kristof on January 13, 2019, 08:21:41 pm »
I'd be a fan of a re-design. Given the issues surrounding safety and riders being "visible" to drivers, perhaps something with more bright/bold colours (though perhaps not quite as "safety vest-y" as the Collingwood club's totally hi-vis jerseys).

Just my 2 cents

My thoughts exactly.

Thanks for the comments/feedback so far guys.
 
Most members who have asked about shorter rides are Easy Rollers or Touring riders. And new club members, unless they're experienced cyclist, will initially ride with the Beginners, Easy Rollers and/or Touring Groups. My thought (which is definitely open to discussion) is to keep the Beginner rides pretty short all season. Early in the season (first 6 weeks maybe?) keep the Easy Rollers and Touring relatively short. Then through the late spring and summer schedule both short & long rides for Easy Rollers and Touring, and maybe Classic if there's enough demand.

Thanks, Steve J

   

I feel this is the best solution.  I know that for 2018 I've hardly been on any club rides, but hope that will improve again for 2019.  This would prove to be beneficial for new members and members like myself who haven't had too much saddle time and need to get back into it properly.

I appreciate that this is at least being discussed now.

Just a quick note for those of you who are suggesting delivery of the clothing earlier in the year.
1. Turnaround time for orders are generally six to eight weeks regardless of supplier.
2. We typically hold off ordering until mid-May (with a mid-July delivery) because this gives new members (the majority of which join in April or early May) a chance to order.
3. We need an order window of at least a month so that our order quantities are large enough to keep prices reasonable.
I hope this makes our July deliveries appear a little more logical.   :)

Figured I would post here before hitting Kijiji

I have a used Shimano Ultegra R8000 Mechanical Left and Right shifters, Front and Rear Derailleur. Only used them this summer and are still in really good condition. If anyone is planning to upgrade their kit, this is a great choice.
 
I'll be willing to let it all go for $200.
