STC Clothing.... order by tomorrow !! March 31st !!

OK, we were having technical difficulties with the Store Front of Champion but it should be all sorted now.

You can order until tomorrow evening. Make sure to get on it, since we're going to lock it down and process the order so people get their kit in a reasonable time.

Penticton Training Camp

Penticton Training Camp

STC traditionally runs a training camp in Penticton BC the week before the Victoria Day long weekend in May.  This year's edition will run May 14-19 with the option of riding thru the long weekend.  Riders are responsible for arranging accommodations and transportation but the group meets every morning for a ride and sets a location for evening dinner.  Rides vary in length from about 100 km up to about 160km.

Because the team is in a rebuilding phase the number of attendees are down, last year we had 7 riders, which worked well because everyone was at about the same level of fitness.  Right now there are 5 people expressing interest and a couple of possibles.  Past rides had as many a 30 attendees.

If you're new to the team and haven't ridden the roads south of Penticton this should be on your bucket list.  Contact me if you're interested and I can tell you more.  Once we confirm numbers and commit to going I'll post more info on this blog, so periodically check back here for updates.

UPDATE for March 18th Race #3 Saturday Night

It looks like we're going to have enough cyclists for 2 heats tomorrow night! Come at 5:45pm and we'll put all the women and some of the guys in the first heat, and the rest in heat 2 that goes at 7:20pm.

If you aren't racing, come at around 6pm and cheer the first heat on while having a beer and pizza! Kids welcome.

CLOTHING: NOTE, there is something wrong with the clothing portal currently, I will contact Champion on Monday and get it fixed and extend the deadline to the 23rd. I want to order it soon though so we have it in time for the spring races.

See you tomorrow,

Trev, Marie, Darcy, Dennis, and Michael.

STC Indoor Race #3 (March 18th) Other clubs welcome.

We had a great time with the 21k race and a huge turnout! Several people gained valuable time with the beer rule.  Unfortunately I'd need to have like 3 beers to really make a dent in some of those times!
Ok hold the date!

Next Saturday the 18th of March.

Warmup for heat #1 starts at 5:45pm and race starts at 6pm sharp!
A second heat is a real possibility and as this is a long one, we'll add a heat every hour or so.

This month's joy de vie, is the infamous 14.6km Latigo Hill climb.  A hotly contested Strava segment, inside and out.  Bring your "climbing bike" as this baby is 14.6km uphill.

Again, (because it was so much fun) we will be inviting a few members from some other clubs to increase the quality of trash talk.  If you have little people, bring them.  There will be toys, games, crafts and food for the little ones and some monitoring from some very responsible tweens.
We'll make sure the music is loud.
Pizza and beer haters need not apply...


STC Clothing !! ORDER BY March 19th !!

I have opened the Champion Systems Clothing portal and selected what I think are the most appropriate items to order from. I have tried to limit the offerings so new members aren't too overwhelmed.

For new members:   All you really require is a Jersey (and get the 'Tech Short Sleeve' if this is your first year). if you plan on competing in any of the midweek or weekend events. However, you look way cooler in a full kit, so if you can, get the Bibs or Shorts as well. If this is your first year, get the least expensive stuff and then work up from there if required. Some cyclists never get the expensive stuff, it is purely a matter of preference.

The store will CLOSE at midnight on March 19th....  for real!
