Welcome to Spoke n'Hot 2019!
Monday night. Dutch Cycle 6pm to 8pm.
Monday night will be our Annual Tech night hosted by Freddy Vandelinden from Dutch Cycle. Exclusive to registered Spoke riders this is your opportunity to learn a little more about your bike, particularly how to fix a flat tire.
Freddy has been teaching Spoke riders how to do this every year and you will be amazed at how simple it is to change a tire AND how much more confident you will feel about hitting the road. It's a must do for new riders! It is also mandatory that you carry the equipment that you need to change a tire when you ride. Freddy can supply everything you need on Monday night.
The format is very much hands on. Please bring your front wheel with you. After a demo on helmet fit and tire changing by Freddy we will split into small groups of two or three and, led by one of our Ride Leaders, you'll fix your own wheel. It's fun and occasionally frustrating but you'll have a good time and laugh quite a bit. You'll leave Dutch with the confidence of knowing that you can look after yourself on the road and you'll have made a couple more friends
Dress casually, you'll be sitting on the floor unless you bring a stool or cushion.
If you're a returning Spoke rider then you should be pretty comfortable already so there is no need for you to come unless you want to refresh your skills.
I'l create a Facebook event and we would appreciate it if you'd RSVP. If you want to bring a fold up chair feel free!
See you Monday,
Theresa and Mark.
Tomorrow night is our Registration Celebration, starting at 6pm at Dutch Cycle. It's a casual way to meet the Ride Leaders, renew friendships from last year and maybe win a $200 Gift Certificate! Freddy and the staff are keeping the store open just for us, we can have a visit with each other and shop at the same time!
We're excited about this year. We have a lot more riding options and we're going to make the best of them, including exclusive access to our new ByPass before it opens to the general public! Over on the east side of Regina we're going to take advantage of the great new service roads and the options to ride through Emerald Park, White City and Balgonie.
Add the gravel option and we're confident that you'll have a fun season on two wheeeeeels!!
See you tomorrow,
Mark and Theresa.
