2021 Season Update

As we all know, the 2020 season did not materialize. However, the Club executive are optimistic that better times are ahead and we are hoping to begin the 2021 season by July 1st, when it is safe to do so. Online 2021 season membership registration is now operational.

In the mean time, as Spring weather conditions arrive, we are encouraging all past and prospective new members to prepare for the upcoming season. We believe that bike shops are experiencing issues with parts supply delays. So, arrange to have your bike tuned up and ready to go as soon as possible! In addition, riders will need to get their fitness up to par, so get those solo rides going as soon as you can!

Silver Spokes is offering a NEW RIDE!

Starting this Friday morning (August 2nd), there will be a weekly casual ride leaving from the German Hall at 9:00.

The Pace will vary between 25-28 km/h for a distance of approximately 50 km.

Yvette will send out the route the night before.

If the ride will be cancelled due to inclement weather, an e-mail will be sent out by 8:00 Friday morning.

This ride is not officially on our Club Schedule as of yet, so until it’s approved by the OCA it will not be an Club Sanctioned Ride.
Huge Thank You to Yvette Mahieu for Organizing and Leading this ride!
Her contact info is:
So if you’re free Friday morning, check out the new ride!
Here is the new updated ride schedule:

Women’s Day Ride

First Ladies Group
The Silver Spokes Cycling Club and Ontario Cycling Association has chosen Sunday, May 20th as Women’s Day – and is offering a ladies-only ride.  All riders are exempt from membership or OCA fees this day, so it’s a great chance to see what group cycling is all about. You can get more ride and contact information here: Ladies Day Ride.
CCN has created a registration link – which leads to more information/ details as well as a waiver for riders to sign.  Club members do NOT have to register for this event – but encourage any potential riders to follow this link:   Women’s Day Registration
This will be a social ride, with a distance of 35 – 40km.  Ramblin’ Road has agreed to open early for the event and will have washrooms available before the ride.  We also encourage riders to stay afterwards and have lunch or a drink – and answer any questions they may have.  Start time is 10 a.m.
Connect with me if you have any questions.  Happy riding!
