A BIG thank you to...

All the volunteers and sponsors who made this past weekend one of the best (sunshine does help too). Without volunteers to check in riders, run safety zones, offer SAG support, fix tires and other mechanicals, provide complete radio ops of the course and manage routes, Rideau Lakes would not happen at all. We thank our sponsors for providing either services or financial support that help defray costs of putting on this event. Thank you for volunteering and sponsoring this ride!

RLCT June 8-9, 2019

It's never too early to start thinking about next year. Hope to see you then.
