OBC 'Spring Thing' Picnic Sunday, May 22nd

10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.'ish' Watson's Mill Historic Park in Manotick

The OBC 'Spring Thing'! is the invention of André Gauthier, our day tour director, with the intent of giving those cyclists getting ready for the Rideau Lakes Cycle Tour another reason to get out there and train. Please cruise by to take part in the 'Build Your Own Sandwich' event complete with Panini presses to heat up your creation.

Annual OBC Garage Sale & New Members Night Wednesday, May 11th

6:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. 78 Lisgar St, Ottawa

Just a quick reminder of the OBC Social Wednesday, May 11th! I was at the first Group Riding Clinic of the year and there were over 60 enthusiastic new members taking the course at the Experimental Farm. Let's hope many of you who went on the 16th can come to this OBC event as well. Of course, all are welcome, returning members, and non-members as well. For those of you that just like to browse, come on down. If you wish to unload your cycling and/or sports related stuff, please feel free to grab a space at a table and sell, sell, sell!
