The Kurzawinski Coach Cycling Club is a natural fit with our racing team. Some people get intimidated by the idea of a race team, but our racers are a great bunch of guys and gals who, above all, like to ride their bikes! So what better way to improve your enjoyment on the bike as well as your fitness and skill level by joining a bunch of like minded individuals for organized group rides.
We have a number of different ride options, almost every day of the week. Most ride options follow an “out and back” type route so that the larger group can split into different abilities out on the road and easily regroup on the way back.
For all club rides, participants must be a Club Member, registered through the OCA, prior to attending. You can learn more about joining the team at the Join the Team link.
Riders who attend group rides should first ensure that their bikes are tuned up and in good working order. If you’re not able to take care of this on your own, please contact Coach Kurzawinski for a tune-up or an updated bike fitting.
During the ride, each individual should be self sufficient and should be able to handle anything that comes up (i.e. flat tire). The group is always helpful and you won’t be left alone, but it’s bad form to come to a ride assuming or expecting that others will fix your bike. Also be sure to come properly fueled and hydrated, especially important during the summer months, bring food and drinks to consume along the way.
If you’re new to riding in a group, your still welcome but just be sure to let the Coach know in advance. Depending on your ability level you may be able to jump right in or you might want to take a couple group riding and bike handling lessons from the coach.
We’ll have ride maps and profiles available for our most common routes so you can download them and print them out before attending. If you have any questions or special requests please contact us to let us know!
