The Team Shop to order our 2022 jerseys, bibs, jackets, and more is open until January 24. Those who have paid their 2022 membership dues have been emailed ordering instructions. Please contact Mike Bisch with questions at Cadieuxniforms@gmail.com.
Our yearly kit fitting day is set for Saturday, December 11, from 10am to 2pm at the Berkley American Legion Post 374, 2079 W. 12 Mile Road (just west of Woodward), Berkley 48072.
This is your once-a-year opportunity to try on samples of jerseys, bibs, jackets, and more provided by our partners at Cuore of Switzerland. This event is intended to help you get fitted for a Cadieux kit based on your technical needs and comfort. If you have any questions, concerns, doubts, etc. about what sizes you need, please make plans to attend this event. The samples will be returned to Cuore immediately following the event – there will be no individual fittings. You may even want to bring kit you already own just to compare the sizes and confirm your needs before ordering. Be sure to take note of all of your sizes, perhaps bring a pen/paper or text it to yourself. As most of you know – Cuore offers custom adjustments to areas like sleeve, front, and leg length, so you can tailor your fit precisely. All Cadieux kit is custom-made and there are no refunds, so be sure to attend and get your size confirmed before ordering.
We will take every precaution to help protect you against COVID-19. For your safety, masks will be required, regardless of vaccination status.
Your autumn orders should have started arriving in your mailboxes this past week. The next order period, featuring our 2022 design, will take place in early January. The artwork is still being finalized, but will be very similar to the current design (we will share it with the membership when completed). Thank you for submitting your responses to the recent year-end kit survey – we listened, and will deliver on your request for a blue jersey in 2022!
You must be a current member to order kit. If you have not yet joined the club for 2022, please visit the Club Shop here: https://cadieuxbicycleclub.com/product/cbc-membership/
Thanks and we will see you on December 11!
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! 😉
\Leon and the Exhale Team
It is with great pleasure that #Riders4Research and Cadieux Bicycle Club announce the return of the Exhale Fall Charity Ride on Sunday October 17th.

This year is going to be SPECTACULAR, because the leaves will be a bit further into their glorious autumnal colors.

Please follow these steps prior to AND continuing throughout the race day.
You’ll notice a big push for on-line registrations through BikeReg.com, which is for stream-lining the registration process and feeding data to our timing crew.
Online registrations are also for your safety in an effort to minimize the time and number of people standing in line to pick up bib numbers. Similarly, online registrations also avoids the need to handle cash, so if for any reason you cannot complete the registration online, please bring your credit card or Apple Pay, Google Pay, Samsung Pay capable smartphone.

Rev 2: The flyer was updated on August 27th to permit Women’s CAT 4 riders to participate in the Women’s PRO 1/2/3/4, because at time of pre-reg closure, there was only one qualified racer in that race.
Rev 1: The flyer was updated on August 9th to increase the Women’s Pro race to 45 minutes (from 40), while reducing the men’s Pro race to 75 minutes (from 90). This was done so that the Women’s races meet the MBRA and USAC length requirements for a State Championship.

THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS & PARTNERS
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!
P.S. If you join/renew from now, you’re good through the end of 2021. Yay!
