1. The Rides

Sadly, the “official” cycling season for KNBC has come to an end.

A huge thank you goes out to all the Tour Leaders for making this a fantastic cycling season, filled with a wide variety of excellent tours! Your leadership, hard work, patience and dedication is very much appreciated!

2. KNBC Annual General Meeting, Tuesday Nov. 6, 2018 6:00 – 9:00 pm

Biagio's Italian Kitchen, 1394 Richmond Rd, Ottawa.

New members are especially welcome. Free pizza until we run out, cash bar, and a chance to socialize and compare road rashes. There will be tables to sell new and used equipment, promote multi-day tours and take orders for club clothing (see below).
