Wednesday Rides Starting April 11

Please note that “Joyce’s Ride” is starting this week Wednesday, April 11. 

We leave the parking lot in front of Kelowna Cycle at 5pm for an easy 30-35km ride through the hills of East Kelowna. Coffee afterwards.

Starting the season??

Snow is melting and dirt is being cleared off the roads. Are we ready to ride? The Century Ride is coming up soon!

I was asked to post a 10am start time for the Sunday ride, starting April 15, whenever the weather is good enough. I won’t be here for the next 3 weekends but would love to hear how the season start is going.

As in previous years, please email me if you want something posted for any group rides or special rides you may be planning. 

Also enjoy this April’s Fool’s video for a bike horn … not a bad idea!

Cycling Documentary

Beware of the bike scam …

This is a note from Angus … I have encountered this before and my (previously stolen and then recovered) bike was advertised like this in the past. When someone is interested, the claim the bike isn’t here, or in transit etc. STAY AWAY!

“Thought you might be interested in a scam (I believe.) that I found on craigslist Kelowna in bikes for sale by owner section. 

They have a very expensive Scott road bike listed for sale for $1521.

I tried to make arrangements to see the bike and have Shaun buy it for me. He was given a story that the bike was packaged for shipping and was in Winnipeg. When Shaun stated that he was going to be in Winnipeg for xmas and that he could do the deal there correspondence stopped. I do not know how to alert craigslist but thought you might like to at least put a warning out to all the bees. If it not a scam it is a killer deal. ( Just too good to be true.)”
