Gord's message: See you at Cyclon!

After a two-year hiatus, we are pleased to welcome members back to Cyclon, our (normally) annual get-together for a weekend of riding and socializing. We are just a couple of days away from the start of this fun event, running July 29 through August 1 from our residence on the beautiful Western University campus in London, Ont., with many options for day rides in and around the city.

When we were setting up and finalizing the weekend with our reps at Western, the university had in place a still fairly strict set of guidelines surrounding Covid-19. As a result, we are saddened that we had to limit registration to a smaller group, to comply with Western's policies.

To those of you lucky enough to join us, we are looking forward to seeing you there. TBN's Cyclon committee has put this together with a lot of hard, dedicated work, and we are very grateful for their many hours of research and planning. Thanks to all of you.

See you in London.

Gord Irish, President

Attention all Cycloners

Welcome packages and ride data were sent out July 24 by cyclon@tbn.ca so please check your spam and email boxes. Be sure to read the "Cyclon 2022" and "Info at a Glance" pages as a minimum. Spots are also filling up fast for Saturday night dinners.   

Remember to bring your proof of Covid vaccination information, pack clothing appropriate for outdoor dining (as Sunday's banquet will be held outside) and bring cash for any alcohol purchases. Friday we will have a bonfire outside, so you may also wish to pack a picnic blanket or bring a lawn chair.

Looking forward to seeing you all in London, Ont. this weekend.

Safe travels!

TBN's annual picnic rescheduled

Due to a new policy on park permits within the City of Markham we have learned that barbecues are not allowed at our usual location, Toogood Pond. As a result, we have secured Milliken Park in Scarborough, about 8 km SE of Toogood. However, due to the late request the only available date is Sept. 18. 

This is a large, beautiful park with several covered picnic table areas that should perfectly suit our needs. If this location works for us, we will submit the permit request on time to get the park on our usual date (early August) next year.

Stay tuned for more information.

TBN jerseys cancelled for this year

We regret that jerseys will not be produced this year, as our supplier, Garneau, has not been responsive to our requests to set up the online store. Our apologies to any members who were hoping to order jerseys but this is beyond our control. Watch for news on our plans for 2023.
