Re: bicycles on airplanes

If it is possible, I suggest you rent a bike at your destination. I've only flown with a bike twice (not counting all the fun times at the dearly departed Airtime Bike Park), but both experiences had problems.

Re: 2014 Interclub Races

Due to a lack of interest on my part, I am relinquishing my role as OSCC Interclub contact person. Everything is in place for 2014, which leaves plenty of time for those OSCCers who are interested in the Interclub series to select someone to represent the club in future dealings with Barrie and Newm...
