Registration for TBN's annual meeting and dinner dance closes on Thursday ahead of the party, which takes place at Whistlers Bar and Grill, just north of Broadview subway station, on Saturday, November 4. This is your chance to learn what TBN changes are afoot and find out who are the volunteer(s) of the year for 2017. No bicycles are allowed in the dining room, but you'll have lots of opportunities to meet people and have fun.We're offering food, drink (cash bar) and great company, with a choice of menus for vegetarians and meat-eaters. The price? Just $40 for members and $50 for non-members.

We would love to have more members join TBN's superb indoor cycling training sessions at the downtown Adelaide Club, the perfect way to keep your cycling muscles all tuned up during the winter. The sessions are set to start again on Wednesday nights in the second half of November. Carmen Diges, a cycling coach and certified master instructor for spinning, draws on her racing and coaching experience to develop a program that meets TBN members' goals and needs. She develops progressive classes, and tests regularly so participants meet their personal goals. Plus you'll get a chance to try the Adelaide's new state-of-the-art Stages bikes, with power meter technology.
These are not your run-of-the-mill spin classes. It's an opportunity you won't want to miss. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
Our programs of Fall Hikes and City Walks have both started up again. Check the website for more details.
Please note we're still seeking a leader for November 26, the last fall hike of the season. Contact coordinator Vicki Bondy at email@example.com if you can help. She'll even let you pick the destination.
Most of our cycling programs have finished for this season, with the exception of the Sunday Tourist and Wednesday Wheelie rides, which keep going until the end of December (weather permitting). But watch the TBN Forum and the TBN Facebook page for details on unofficial rides and other events. In fact, anyone can organize an unofficial ride; you do not have to be a ride leader. (Note that TBN insurance does not cover unofficial rides.)
A friendly reminder about High Park Ski Club's New Members' night, which takes place at the Raiders E-Sports Centre at 439 St Clair Avenue West on Thursday, November 23. You can meet the HPSC leaders and join a charity raffle -- a $5 ticket gives you the chance to win special prizes as well as a big Grand Prize. Proceeds go to Ontario Track 3 Ski Association, a volunteer charity that helps kids and youth with disabilities to “discover their confidence, develop their talents and achieve their physical potential through the magic of snow sports.”
HPSC offers Alpine and Nordic ski day and overnight trips in Ontario and beyond. Learn more about High Park Ski Club here.
