In the Spring of 2006 the club purchased a 2005 Chevrolet 3500 Express passenger van with an extended wheel base from Myers Motors.
This van replaces the grey one which was purchased in 1991 and is now retired. The new van is white with the OBC logos on both sides, the Myers logos and Auto Racks logos. It is configured to take eight people, including the driver. It has the latest in bike racking systems (manufactured by Thule) from Auto Racks. The racking system will be able to take eight bikes on the roof.
The van will be used by the various portfolios in the club with priority going to such events as Rideau Lakes, Summer's End and various other large tours. Other portfolios, such as Racing, will be using it frequently as well.
It should be noted that only club members 25 years old and greater, with driver's licenses registered with the club office, can operate it. Due to insurance restrictions, the van is only available for club use. Contact the club office ahead of time to book the van for club activities.
