IMPORTANT NOTICE:  Changes to our CYCLOCROSS Schedule:

Back in March we planned our season schedule and then printed paper copies of the schedule.  But since then we have had to make a few changes throughout the season.  In particular there are some significant changes to the Cyclocross events coming up soon. NOTE: locations are still either the Canada Games Complex or Centennial Golf Course.  Sunday times are still 1:00pm BUT the new Thursday times are at 6:00pm.

PLEASE FOLLOW THE CALENDAR ON THE HOME PAGE OF OUR WEBSITE in order to get the correct and most up to date schedule (NOT the paper schedule). Click on each date to open up the page to get specific information on location and time.

Cyclocross does not start on Sept 18 as originally planned.  Our first event is a Free Tryout Day on Sept 25.  Then there are events on Oct 6, Oct 13, Oct 16, Oct 27, Oct 30 and Nov 6.

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.
