Slow roll to celebrate the life of Cathy Watts

Thank you to everyone who joined us September 8th for a ride to celebrate the life of our long-time leader and force of nature Cathy Watts. It was great to have close to 80 people of all ages and abilities ride with us to visit some of Cathy’s favourite spots around town. We’ve decided to make this an annual event. Join us next year (and the year after…).

Hold the date: AGM November 3rd

We’re still firming up details, but block the evening of Wednesday, November 3rd in your calendar. Everyone is welcome to attend our 2021 annual general meeting. Join us for supper, fellowship, and report on where we’ve been and where we’re headed.

For sale: Bike locker

Jim Arnold, one of our SC board members, is selling his lightly used bike locker and donating the proceeds to Saskatoon Cycles. It is the same locker that’s available for rent on the USask campus. These lockers are constructed of durable, recycled black plastic (except for doors and hardware) and come with both locking mechanism and padlock. He is asking $1700 OBO; the money is going toward our operations, so please no low-ball offers. If you’d like more information, or to make an offer, send an email note to info@saskatooncycles.org
