Welcome from past president Megan
The 2016 cycling season has conquered a lot of hills this year. Our club offers a variety of cycling experiences and we encourage you to participate as often as you like in the clubs’ cycling events.
The Silver Spokes Club is a road touring club, and our tours are focused on safety and enjoyment. We offer cycling tours for people of all ages, and all levels of ability. We have a weekly ride schedule and many special event rides on most weekends throughout the spring and summer. Because our membership resides throughout Oxford and Norfolk counties, we begin our rides at many locations such as Hay Creek Conservation area, Delhi German Hall, Courtland Bakery, and the Tillsonburg Recreation Centre.
Our rides are organized and lead by very experienced cyclists. The planned route and a safety tip are presented at the beginning of each ride. A description of each of our rides is posted on the web site. Everyone is welcome to participate in all rides, however a self evaluation of your level of fitness is a wise idea before attempting one that you are not ready for. Talk to the ride leader before the ride begins so that he is aware of your ability. This will ensure that assistance is planned and ready when you need it. Since safety is always our most important concern, helmets are mandatory for all rides.
Membership has its privileges and belonging to the Silver Spokes Cycling Club is no exception. You must be a member before you can ride with the club. All members receive e-mail updates of scheduled rides and club events, such as our annual picnic and banquet. As well some local bike shops offer discounts to our members (please inquire when making a purchase).
The Silver Spokes Cycling Club is a member of the Ontario Cycling Association (OCA). The OCA requires that all member clubs carry insurance for each member. Membership fees include insurance premiums.
On behalf of The Silver Spokes Cycling Club Executive, I welcome you to the 2016 cycling season. We are looking forward to a short winter and a safe and enjoyable summer. Hope to see you on the road.
Past President, Silver Spokes Cycling Club
