Fall message from the Board

While the season draws to an end, the Board and Staff are hard at work to ensure everything is in order before rolling out our plans for 2016. The beginning of September marked the return to our offices post Pan Am Games, and October 1st marked the beginning of Triathlon Ontario’s sub lease in our space.

On November 7th, we will be hosting the 16th Annual Cycling Celebration. The event will be held at The Grand Chalet in Milton Ontario. The evening begins at 6pm and promises to be a night of true inspiration and great company. This year’s celebration plans will be extra special. There are a limited number of tickets still available and there will not be any tickets available at the door. We invite you to join us to celebrate a wonderful year for cycling.

Since January 1st, the staff and organizers have run some wonderful events across the province. We are pleased to have added 6 new sanctioned weekly race series. The O-Cup series across all disciplines has seen a 7% increase in participation. Also, we are proud to have started our Youth Cup Track series since the opening of the velodrome.

Lastly, we’d like to announce the date for our Annual General Meeting. It will be held on November 21st at Hardwood Ski and Bike in Oro-Medonte, Ontario. We encourage members to attend, witness the reporting on a successful year, exercise your right in the upcoming director’s elections and contribute to the dialog for 2016. More information will be posted shortly regarding details and we hope to see you there.

As you can see there are a lot of things on the go and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store for 2016. If you have any questions or ideas you’d like to share with the Staff or Board we encourage you to connect with us by e-mail to either Jim Crosscombe at mailto:jimcrosscombe@ontariocycling.org or the board at mailto:oca-board@ontariocycling.org.
