Join us on Saturday March 14th to Cruise the Celtic Isles. Bust out those Irish duds for a chance to win a $25 gift card for "Most Irish." Prizes also awarded to oldest and youngest riders. Don't forget to get your card at each SAG stop for your winning poker hand. This ride is the first organized club ride of the year and open to the public. Invite your cycling and non-cycling friends. (Even the non-Irish will be allowed to ride.) The ride will start at the east end of Ben Butterworth. Distance is approximately 25 miles, with shorter options available. We will meet up at Front Street Brewery for lunch and prize awards.
All club members are strongly encouraged to bring a non-member so they can experience how "very serious" we QCBC folks are about our riding! This is a free ride compliments of QCBC.
The ride will be cancelled if we receive 3 inches of snowfall or greater in the proceeding 24 hrs or temperatures are below 32 degrees. This will be posted on the QCBC website. Hopefully, the Luck of the Irish will be on our side and we will have great spring weather!

Come join us for 2015 Spring Tailwind Century Ride which will be held Saturday, May 2.
We'll start to load bikes at Ben Butterworth Parkway at 6:30 a.m. and leave at 7 a.m. for our starting destination. Please bring a blanket to cover/protect your bike during transportation.
There will be two buses, with a limit of about 90 people. The drive normally takes about two hours. Once there, we'll unload the bikes and send you on your way after handing out cue sheets. We will have a secure area (probably a locked trailer) for any gear you don't want to haul back on your bike.
The March General Meeting will be one week earlier this year due to St. Patrick's Day.
Jeff Bradley and Tom Schuler will be our speakers for the evening. They are both members of Team 7-Eleven. They will be answering your questions about the team and racing with the team. If you purchased the Team 7-Eleven book, bring it with you for some autographs. Also, Tom's company is the director of our Criterium and he can answer any questions about the local race.
Tuesday March 10th @ 7:00 pmDinner, beverages and then the meeting.
