The Waterloo Cycling Club has changed its venue for Festival De Velo, planned for July 25th. It's the same day, but, in a different place. Due to scheduling difficulties, the event has been moved to City Hall, Kitchener.
The start/finish will be on King Street and the course will be a 1+ km criterium. Look to the OCA racing calendar and waterloocyclingclub.org for more details as they become available.
It has been a bit hectic lately, so here are some belated birthday greetings.
