The CVCC held the annual awards dinner and AGM at the Dove Creek Community Hall recently.

Twenty-eight members were in attendance to close the chapter on the 2011 bike race season.

Awards were handed out for overall winners in the following categories: Category A: Doug Merrick, Category B: James Grant, Category C: Mark Grant, Novice: Isaac van der Vliet, Time Trial Male: Mike Flegel, Time Trial Women: Audrey Erlandson.

In addition to race winners, a couple of special monetary prizes were awarded for the Bruce Ellis Award (most improved): Gillian Ellsay, and Racer Support Funding: Jordan Duncan, Andrew Grant, James Grant and Mark Grant.

The CVCC is celebrating its 25th year and longtime member John Bernard was honoured for years of volunteer and service to the club with an Andy Everson print.

The club’s membership is made up of men and women ranging in age, experience, and focus. Although there is a strong focus on racing, members are united with the goal of fun and fitness while on and off a bike. Many members have been riding for years while others are new to the sport.

Members cover all aspects of bicycle riding, including local/ provincial/ national and international racing, triathlons, masters races, Grand Fondo rides, Senior Games and some just ride to keep fit.

We know riding in a group and racing can be intimidating, but it is not. Beginners will be taken care of and individual fitness level and confidence will improve at your pace and level.

Membership to the club provides an opportunity to join a group of knowledgeable, enthusiastic cyclists who are willing to share their experience and knowledge to help individuals become better riders.

Race and time trial events are held over the summer months, however group rides occur all year long (fenders mandatory for wet weather group rides).
