Let's take advantage of (better) weather forecast for Sunday and ride at 13:00 (1 PM) that afternoon, instead of Saturday. We will follow the Orchard Lake route counter clockwise. The full route is 45 miles, and you can shorten that by ten miles by returning to Rosemount via Hwy 3. We’ll make a pit stop at Orchard Lake, even though the rest rooms will probably be closed.Read More
It’s spring and the weather and roads are looking good, so we are going to meet for our first outdoor ride of the year on Saturday afternoon. The wind is expected to be from the South, so we will follow the Northfield route, but we’ll shorten it by staying on CR 86 through Castle Rock. for a 47-mile loop.Read More

It has been three weeks since our last outdoor ride, and I bet you're as frustrated as I am about this spring weather. To try to make up for lost time, I'm planning to do two rides this weekend. Neither ride will be fast or furious, until the end, because most of us have spring legs and we need to keep everyone together and having fun. There's both a morning and an afternoon ride, so hopefully you can make it to one or both of them.Read More
Today, I received a report of our club's orders from Garneau and I'm happy to report that we exceeded the minimums for all items and everyone has paid for the items they selected during the pre-order period. Thank you for your participation and attentiveness throughout the ordering process. Garneau received orders from 35 people for a total of 98 items. Some of you ordered both men's and women's items and others order multiple items. I think you all appreciated how our sponsor dollars helped cut the prices. In fact, you took full advantage and used all of the available funds and then some.Read More

Garneau's store for RCC will re-open soon. We are setting the final pricing before we open the store again around February 6.
There was a two-step ordering process, so we can estimate interest and final pricing:
- Select the items that you plan to purchase, and check out.
- About a week later you will return to the store to see the final pricing and pay for those items.
During the off-season, we've been working with Grand Performance and Louis Garneau to design and prepare a new club kit for you and we are ready to share the result. As you can see, we kept the same four colors and a few of the design elements from the previous kit. Overall, the new design is cleaner, brighter, and — featured prominently on the front and back of the jersey and vest — has the same new club logo as our web site.Read More
The weather is looking good for us this long weekend, so I think a couple more rides may be in order this year. It looks like it should reach around 50 degrees on Friday and Sunday, so you can plan on a ride leaving Starbucks at 13:00 both days. I have family plans on Friday, so I won't be able to ride, but I will lead the Sunday ride.Read More
Sunday afternoon looks like it will be warm enough for a ride for a few hearty souls. It's supposed to get cold overnight Sunday morning, but it should warm up into the mid 30s in the afternoon. Let's plan on a ride Sunday at 13:00 and I'll post an update on Sunday morning.Read More
