Touring 2014

General News

Despite the continuous freezing weather, Touring will start this Saturday March 22nd at 9am.  Unless the weather turns to rain, freezing rain or accumulating snow, we will be meeting down at Centennial Hall.  Please note:  Tour destination is at the discretion of the Leader and may change when winds are excessive and not favorable.  For this reason, meeting at Centennial Hall and signing in is essential to ensure you are part of the tour.   We will try to post any tour changes for Friday evening or worst case scenario, Saturday morning early.

As we enter into a new touring season it is important that we again go over the important safety issues that can occur during tours.  Having had a number of individuals suffer serious debilitating injuries last year from cycling, it is crucial that we stick to a "zero tolerance", "safety first" policy.  This includes the following:  Please read on

2014 Race Schedule

General News

The 2014 race schedule is now up.  As usual, this schedule is subject to change.  Please keep checking back to verify the status of events.  Races this year will be fully sanctioned, but you must still be an LCW member to participate.  All participants are asked to volunteer for at least one event.  The help of others would be appreciated as well.  Please contact Lorne (under the "contact us" link) to volunteer for an event.  Volunteering is easy and hassle-free.  Volunteers serve only to keep records.  They have no administrative responsibilities; they do not direct traffic; and they do not give directives to racers.  There will be a number of changes to the way our events will be run and scored this year, designed to enhance the competition for club awards.  Changes include a handicapping system for time trials, and special "championship" road and criterium events where more points will be available to more participants.  Please read on for more details.

Southwest Challenge a Success!

Well another successful Southwest Challenge has gone by as we now wind down the cycling season.  This year's event brought over 120 cyclists from Toronto, Sarnia, Kitchener and of course London.  Amazingly, $50,000 was raised for the Children's Health Foundation.  Thankfully, there were no major accidents despite the very rainy conditions.  Some were calling it the Southwet Challenge.  Of course it was all for a great cause.  Thanks to all who participated by fundraising and in many cases donated to make this year a tremendous success.  Thanks too, to all our sponsors.  Also, thanks to the over 30 volunteers and also to our SWC committee who also put in a lot of time and effort to help this come to fruition. 

On a side note - we have extra, limited edition SWC jerseys and Bib shorts for sale for $75 and $100 respectively.  We also have some SWC socks by Defeet for sale till they're gone - for only $5.  Email me at lcwswc@gmail.com.
