Exhale Fall Charity Ride and Riders4Research thanks you!

Hi hi, Exhalers, family, and friends!

A heart-felt THANK YOU and major kudos to everyone who made this year’s Exhale Fall Charity Ride such an amazing success!!!

Together you all helped to raise over $11,000 toward JDRF’s efforts to end juvenile diabetes!!!  Wow!!!

We really can’t thank you enough!!!

We’re estimating somewhere on the order of 180 riders, which is based on 154 pre-registrations (some being multi-registrant, some being donation-only), and 43 in-person registrations.
There were 122 confirmed via Strava, but many many participants aren’t on Strava.

Whatever the actual number of riders it was a record-breaking event on multiple levels!

Thanks again to everyone!

Now, let’s get back to training every day all year for next year’s event!  😉

Warm Regards,
\Leon and the Exhale Team

RIDE, RACE, & GIVE BACK IN 2021!

Please join or renew your membership.

Dear fellow cycling enthusiasts, Cadieux Bicycle Club, and friends!

Clearly this year has been very challenging for everyone on so many levels. It has also been very difficult for our sport w.r.t. the reasons we’ve come together as a club. We’ve missed being able to ride, race, and socialize together, but we are optimistic that 2021 will eventually bring back some “normalcy.”

We are all looking forward to regularly scheduled social rides and meet-ups, and racing, in whatever form we can in 2021. And will do everything permissible to be able to bring back the Debeats-Devos Memorial Race in its 56th year. Huh-Rah!!! Yeah!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Please stay tuned for regularly scheduled club meetings over Zoom, until we are permitted to meet in person. You’ll also be able keep up with the latest happenings on the CadieuxBC-Member’s mailing list, available to current/recent members, ongoing. It’s a community, “Of the members; For the members” to foster our “Ride, Race, Give Back!” mantra as best we can as a team and a community.

If you are looking for a Cycling Club that gives back to you and the community or a Race Team that races as a team, we’re here for you!

To our many faithful, long-time, members, sponsors, volunteers, teammates, and friends, thank you again for the time you’ve invested volunteering and participating at events, and being active members of this community! Thank you for helping riders of all levels find their comfort zone, then to break out of it and grow, while improving handling skills, speed and endurance, setting goals, then meeting and exceeding them, on and off the bike!

What a great way to TEAM! Thank you for making the Cadieux Bicycle Club a community that we can all be proud to call family! Kudos!

Join or Renew Today!

P.S. If you join/renew from now, you’re good through the end of 2021. Yay!
