Pan Am Track Championships

LCW member Eric MacDonald will represent Canada at the 2012 Junior Pan Am Track Championships in Guatamala from April 23rd to 29th. Good luck Eric!


Eric competed in the men's sprint event on Tuesday, clocking an impressive 11.4s (63.2 km/hr) 200m in qualifying.  This was a new personal best for Eric but was, unfortunately, not quick enough to advance to the top-12 competition round.

On Thursday Eric raced the keirin.  He had a tough heat, matched up against two medalists from the sprint, and had to settle for fifth place.  Moving on the repechage Eric placed third and was, unfortunately, eliminated.

On Saturday Eric raced in the 20km road time trial, placing 29th.

Overall it was an excellent performance for his first international competition. Congratulations Eric!

Just a friendly reminder that we need volunteers to help run the Tuesday night training events. If you or a designate are willing to help out at one of the remaining April events please let Andrew Botterell know. If nobody volunteers we won't be able to race/train.

Not Just Another Touring Season

As we embark on a new season of touring we need to refocus and consider the issues of safety. Even though there are inherent risks involved with road cycling, many risks can be easily managed. One that needs attention is the issue of stopping at stop signs. 

It has been noted that too many individuals in our club consider riding through stop signs as a right of passage. The OCA and LCW policies are clear that we are to adhere to the Highway Traffic Act. To do otherwise is to risk serious injury, the possibility of receiving a ticket from an unexpected police officer and last but not least the voiding our insurance. 
Not only is cruising through a stop sign unsafe but it also sets the wrong example and perpetuates the public’s distain for cyclists. The minor delay in your ride is a small price to pay in relation to potential negative consequences. Furthermore, because we exist in a world of increased liability, we will be holding our members to account on this matter. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
