2013 Niklas Group Wednesday Night Series starts May 8

Joel at Niklas Group has offered some great prizes including Leaders' Jerseys, Gift Certificates from Market 17, J. Webb Wine and Cassis Bistro at Casel Marche and a trip from Bici Bucerias. The trip includes air and accommodations and will be drawn for at the end of the season. Entries will be based on participation and volunteering.
Also all Primary and Secondary members will receive a 10% discount at Market 17 and Vie Cafe.

It all begins May 8 on the Woodland course

For the fist race of the year we plan to use the Woodland course.

Details:  There is some parking near the start of  the race located on the gravel sideroad parallel to highway 1A.  However, we encourage those who can to park in town, or near bearspaw Road and ride to the start.  Spreading out the cars helps with community relations.

We will endeavour to try and start at 6:30pm ish so please try and get there early enough to get signed up and assigned a start number.

 Distance is 16km so ride hard and ride consistent, there are a few hills in the closing kilometres.  After you finish, it's and easy neutral ride back to the starting area down Lochend and along the 1A.  Be careful with the 1A, it's a busy piece of road at times.  The coarse starts along the 1A heading West.  You turn off the 1A near the top of the Cochrane Hill at retreat road, following the road as it twists back and turns north.  The next and last turn is right onto 262 which takes you to the finish along 262 a kilometre before you reach Lochend Road.
