Volunteers needed – To Ride Their Bikes!
FREE- Learn to ride mountain biking clinic Instructor Training Session Hosted by Cycling BC

Who: We need YOU! Eager volunteers (12yrs+) that would like to improve their mountain biking skills for FREE
When: Sunday March 21st, 2010 (1-3pm)
Where: Scott Creek Middle School, Coquitlam
What: No experience necessary but all participants must have a bike and a helmet.
Why: This is an instructor training session- our clinic instructors will be preparing to teach clinics that run from mid April- mid June.

How: If you are interested in getting involved please email Krista@cyclingbc.net for more information. Space is limited and applicants will be served on a first come, first served basis.

Technical Delegate Recruitment
Cycling BC is looking to recruit several members familiar with racing who are interested in occasional contract work as an event Technical Delegate (TD) at some Road events this summer. The role of the technical delegate is to serve as Cycling BC’s representative at the race. This usually involves:

– Assisting the race organizer with registration
– Answering member questions regarding categories and race licenses
– Assisting with awards, particularly for BC Cup or Provincial Championship events
– Setting up the podium and back-drop provided to organizers by Cycling BC
– Assisting the organizer with race results preparation
– Returning and forms or fees collected to the Cycling BC office

We expect that each Technical Delegate will be asked to work at 1 to 3 races per year, depending upon availability; most races will be in or close to the BC Lower Mainland. Cycling BC will provide training and a Cycling BC shirt to successful candidates. Remuneration includes a daily honorarium and travel expenses. Since this role involves only occasional work, there should be no problem with candidates continuing to participate in races throughout the season, with the exception of those events where they are assigned as the Technical Delegate. Applications from existing Cycling BC volunteers such as commissaires or coaches are also welcome, as are applications from members who participate in any of the cycling disciplines; this program will likely be extended to other disciplines in future.

If you are interested, please e-mail a short cover letter describing some of your experience as a participant or volunteer in the sport to Kevin MacCuish at Cycling BC. kevin@cyclingbc.net

Cycling BC Women’s Development Team 2009

Pilot Project
British Columbia has a proud history of producing some of the best female cyclists in the world. Our riders have won World Championships, World Cups, Pan American Games and some of the biggest races in North America. In recognition of these achievements, Cycling BC is furthering the next generation of top national and international level riders by creating a new program for the province’s best female development riders. In 2009, we will present the Cycling BC Women’s Development Team. The goal will be to help talented and aspiring road riders to be more competitive at the National Cycling Championships eventually breaking into the ranks of the National road team.

A key component of the program is a focus on Canada Games and U25 riders. Cycling BC will gradually increase the number of Canada Games and U25 riders on the team as the talent pool steadily grows through this initiative. We strongly believe that by building this team, we will foster and encourage more women to pursue the sport at the highest levels.

The 2009 edition of the team will be open to all female Category 1 & 2 riders, Espoirs and Juniors. All riders interested in the program should email bcdevelopmentteam@gmail.com

Application Process
All female cyclists with a valid Cycling BC licence are invited to submit a resume stating their interest in attending Cycling BC projects (listing each specific project you hope to be included in). You should also include a list of racing results from the past 2 seasons. Only Juniors, U25 and Elite Category 1 & 2 riders will be considered.

In Cycling BC’s application process we will strive to:

1) Field the strongest possible team at each of these competitions.
2) Reserve spots on each team for Junior and U25 riders when appropriate for the athlete’s ______level.
3) Assist athletes in making connections with team and event organizers to find other teams ______if they are not included in the Cycling BC team.
4) Include riders with the potential to podium at the National Elite, U23 or Junior Champs.
5) Provide riders with feedback on their racing resume so that it may be improved for future ______applications to professional women’s cycling teams.

Cycling BC will invite team members for each project on the basis of the following:

1) U25 and Junior riders with appropriate fitness and skills for the competition level.
2) Riders with potential to win at Junior, U23 or Elite at the National Cycling Champs.

3) Riders in the top 5 on the BC Cup Points from the 2008 season.
4) Riders in the top 8 at the BC Provincial Road Cycling Championships.

5) Riders competing well in the 2009 season will also be considered.

All projects will be cost shared amongst participants with coaching and management contributed by Cycling BC during the pilot phase of this initiative. Canada Games athletes will receive extra funding to assist with costs.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact Dan Proulx at bcdevelopmentteam@gmail.com

Coaching Conference – Report
Last Saturday’s conference was an excellent example of how great things happen when coaches communicate!

Congratulations to you and your staff for taking a simple idea, based on the concept of bringing BC cycling coaches together, and putting it together into a full-day interactive coaching conference.

The BC cycling coaching community, represented by 30 coaches in today’s session, are now linked together by their acknowledged vision of creating athletic excellence within the province of British Columbia.

Call for Nominations and Special Resolutions – please download the PDF here and review the Board positions up for election, and the Special Resolutions proposed for member voting.

Location – In keeping with Cycling BC’s constitution, we must hold the AGM outside of the Greater Vancouver area ever 5 years. This is why the 2007 AGM will be held in Abbotsford.

Times Colonist Cycling Festival
September 14-16, Victoria

The 2007 Times Colonist Cycling Festival is taking place September 14-16. The weekend brings together three events – the Bear Mountain Hill Climb, the Cops for Cancer Oak Bay Criterium and the 100.3 The Q Bastion Square Grand Prix

Friday, September 14
Legs and Lungs – The Bear Mountain Hill Climb, presented by Cardinal Law is a three-kilometre climb to the spectacular Bear Mountain Golf Resort and Spa (finishes on Rockhamptom Close) in Langford. Riders start the climb one minute apart and power up the mountain on their own – it’s a gruelling climb and the only way is up! The Bear Mountain Golf Resort and Spa will host an apres-climb party for all Bear Mountain Hill Climb participants. The climb starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 14 at the bottom of Bear Mountain Parkway in Langford.

Saturday, September 15
Heart and Soul – The Cops for Cancer Oak Bay Criterium, presented by Cardinal Law is where participants, organizers, spectators and sponsors give back to the community to help kids with cancer. A successful fund-raising event for the past three years, all proceeds go to the Canadian Cancer Society Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock campaign to help kids living with cancer. The event will also include other fund-raising activities such as head-shaving for donations and events for the kids. The day starts in the heart of Oak Bay, at Windsor Park from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 15.

Sunday, September 16
Guts and Glory – The 100.3 Bastion Square Grand Prix, presented by Cardinal Law is the “money” event – where elite riders put everything on the line to claim prime (lap prizes) and cash prizes before a shoulder-to-shoulder crowd, just inches from the action. The prize and prime purse for the elite riders is estimated at $6,000 to $7,000 (depending on the number of entries in the field).

The day’s events also include open category races, the LaZy Boy Furniture Gallery Challenge (the ‘best seat in the house’ throughout the day), the crowd- pleaser and fund-raiser Helijet Airways Cops / Courier Challenge and the kid- friendly and popular Tim Hortons Timbit Challenge. Staged in the heart of Victoria’s Old Towne, the Bastion Square Grand Prix starts at 8:30 a.m. and runs through the day with the women’s elite race at noon and the men’s elite race at 1 p.m. on Sunday, September 16.

For individual race costs, information and registration visit the Race Website.
