To all PROSPECTIVE NEW RIDERS - if you are new to the sport and unsure of yourself, do come out to ride with us anyway! We will match you up with a mentor, someone with experience in competitive rides. You can also e-mail us beforehand.
Preregistrations: In order for a ride to be held there must be a minimum of 6 preregistered, prepaid riders. In order for the 40 to be held we must have 2 prepaid, preregistered riders
Anyone wishing to pre-pay can send their form and cheque to MaryAnn Kirk at 838 Alfred Avenue, Winnipeg, MB, R2X 0T6. She must receive it a week before the ride, or it can be dropped of at anyone of the executive at least 1 week before the ride. In order for the 40 mile to be held there must be at least 2 preregistered riders. It is now possible to use e-transfers. The money needs to be sent to Mary Anne, her e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org . Follow the instructions on your bank's website. Depending on your institution, there may be a charge for the transfer, but on the other hand, you will save on postage (and possibly on cheque charge)if you send your entry form electronically as well (same e-mail address).
Getting ready for the next riding season? Iris has prepared several useful checklists of gear that you may wish to not forget taking along. Look for it on the Useful Info page.
