WOW 100k Challenge Ride: July 27th
Women members are invited to join us for our 4th annual 100km Challenge on Saturday, July 27th. The ride will be leaving from the Murillo Municipal Office, 4569 Oliver Road in Murillo at 8:30 am. There will be 4 rest stops en route where you can enjoy some fresh fruit, snacks and get more water if needed. Our third stop will once again visit Belluz Farms where a drink and home baked treat will await you! Two support vehicles will follow the route to assist us with any technical difficulties but please remember to have an extra tube with you. A sweep will also be provided for the ride. There will be an apres ride pot luck dinner and we will also request a nominal fee to cover the costs of the snacks. Details will be sent closer to the date of the ride. Sign up here, so we know how much food to provide for the ride. This is a great opportunity to challenge yourself in a safe and supported ride. Every year we have a handful of riders who never would have attempted this distance on their own but feel a great sense of pride and accomplishment (as we all do) when that odometer clicks to that 100km mark!

Bay Street Active Living Corridor
The City of Thunder Bay's Active Transportation Group has proposed creation of an appropriate pathway for self propelled citizens to travel from Hillcrest Park West towards Junot st. One component of this plan is to change some stops signs in the Mariday Park Neighbourhood to facilitate easier East West bike and pedestrian traffic along Bay st. from Hillcrest Park to Marlborough and the two schools at Carrick Park. This would also have an effect of decreasing vehicular traffic North to South along Hill st. and its parallel neighbours. View the Plan here. If you wish to show your support, meet at Hillcrest Park at 6:30pm and join families riding bikes (kids, babies, parents, adults) from Hillcrest park along the route to the Red River Ward meeting held at the Girls and Boys club at Windsor and Junot. The public meeting will start at 7:00 pm on Wednesday May the 22nd.
