At the 2015 Season Kickoff Breakfast meeting it was decided that the Club would re-introduce rotating pacelines. Please read the following paceline structure guide and become acquainted with the concept.
Our spring breakfast meeting is coming up very soon.
Saturday April 11, 2015 at Scotty’s Family restaurant 92 Simcoe St, Tillsonburg.
Director’s meeting at 8:45
Ride leader meeting at 9:30
All other members at 10:00.
The breakfast meeting is a great chance to catch up with old friends and get inspired for the new season. If you are a new rider or thinking of joining the Silver Spokes this is an opportunity to come and meet us.
If you are a ride leader on any regular ride or any special ride the ride leader meeting is for you! Please come.
Other members, please don’t come too early we have a few business items to get through before we can socialize!
Looking forward to seeing everyone on April 11.

While spinning along we encountered two huge fields of Sunflowers on both sides of the rode. These fields stretched as far as the eyes
could see approx. two hundred acres each & each flower head were
tilted towards the morning sun. We imagined pedaling in the Tour de France ! That’s ride leader Rob Martin & Jim Johnson. The road is the Villa Nova road just north of Bealton. map
For the last five years, the first Wednesday in August is when we do our 115 km Niagara-on-the-Lake to Fort Erie and back, ride to commemorate Godefridus ( Fred ) Verbakel who was a keen cyclist and did this ride annually with a number of club members and friends just for fun. This year 20 cyclists enjoyed a perfect day weather wise and even a brief attempt by a number of Velo Quebec riders to latch on to our group. Along the way the group had lunch at Barrel pizza in Fort Erie. There was a photo op stop at the Falls and rehydrating at Harp’s Irish pub back in NOTL. Mark the first Wednesday in August on your calendar for next year. Thanks to all the photo contributors,

Thanks to all participants who rode on the Lighthouse Tour from Port Rowan to Port Bruce on Fri. the 13th. The boys from over on the East Side were particularly proud of our brothers from the West End , especially in their deportment & overall good manners……they rode pretty good as well. Take care & happy trails
