Our Successful TBCC Women's Only Rides was highlighted at the Annual OCA Meeting!

On February 20, our Women's Ride Directors, Pam Dawes and Kate Tinkler, gave a powerpoint presentation on our Women's Only Rides program at the Ontario Cycling Association Annual Presidents Meeting.   There was a great deal of interest and the ladies fielded many questions about how to make such a program a success.   There were even questions about how to purchase a WOW jersey!  Pam and Kate appreciated the feedback they received from many of our members - it was very useful for their presentation.   We are proud to have such terrific ambassadors for both TBCC and Thunder Bay!  Thank you Pam and Kate for taking the time from your busy schedules.
