WTNC IS GO!

We got approval for the Burnaby course! Weather permitting, first race is June 18, which is tomorrow!

The Glenlyon course runs along North Fraser Way and Glenlyon Parkway. Sign-on is at the start/finish, about halfway down Glenlyon Parkway. Some street parking is available (outside of the course only, please, not the inside circuit we're using for the race) but don't park in the businesses lots. As always, riding your bike is a good idea.

Other important changes:

Start Times

Cat 1/2, 3, and 4 will all start, as three separate groups, at 7:15 pm. We changed this from last notice, because we're going to run a short Youth race at 7:00. This is earlier for 1/2, later for 3 and 4. The benefit is we can run longer races. The 1/2s will get a 45-minute race, and the 3s and 4s will also get longer races. The 6:30 categories (Women 1/2/3; Women 4; Novice Men) continue to start at 6:30. In practice, the earlier races will also be a bit longer.

Note empty road behind, signature gesture, zipped up jersey, pointing to sponsors. Even Sagan doesn't do it any better.

In other news, Glotman-Simpson hosted our Sportif race this weekend, and it was lots of fun. Results up soon. WTNC news later today, as soon as we hear.

News for Tuesday

OK, before we get to the meat, a quick reminder that with the help of our friends at Glotman-Simpson, there's a Sportif Race this Sunday, and day-of registration is available.

And now, the WTNC.

We MIGHT be on the new Burnaby course June 11, but we cannot confirm that either way until Monday. We know, this is crazy, but it's nobody's fault, that's just how it is. Follow @EVcycling on Twitter for the latest news. But we're pretty confident we'll be using the course in June.

Quick WTNC update

We're working very hard on the new-course approval process, and we're making progress. But we aren't done yet. There will be no race on June 4, but we MAY be racing June 11. We'll keep you posted.

In the meantime, prepare for this Sunday's Sportif Race, and if you're a woman aged 16-25, please sign up for our Women's Cycling Camp.

WTNC is moving

So, we knew it would happen eventually, and here it is: we just got news that as of today, substantial construction started on the roads we use around Thunderbird Stadium at UBC. Because of this, WTNC will not be using that course until further notice.

Where are we going? We have our heart set on a course in Burnaby, not far from Boundary and Marine. We don't want to say more right now, simply because while the process of getting permission to use the course is going well, it's not over yet. If that falls through, we have alternate plans.

When are we moving? As soon as possible. The June 4 race is TBA; it is unlikely we will have a new course permit finalized at that point. We are cautiously optimistic that the June 11 race will run.

Further news as events warrant. For now, you can follow @EVcycling not just for weather updates, but also for permit updates. We'll also update this site and our Facebook pages as we have more news.

Thanks for your patience. Normal Tuesday Nighter service will resume as soon as possible.
