Please contact me if you would like to take part and are not listed, some have mentioned they cannot make it, However there are others I have not listed because they have not shown any interest in racing so far.
Next Saturday Zoo hill climb, we may be better off parking on Rotary Drive and riding to the hill. With all the “Pandamonium” there is no legal parking anywhere near the zoo, Exception would be Lorne and Gabe to do the timing.
Next Sunday Water Tower Gate, we can park on the road but that then narrows the path for cyclists, I suggest parking on the south side of Sheppard at Home Depot and riding over, there is also a Tim’s/Wendy’s on the south side of Sheppard in case of “nature breaks required”.
