Hey everyone, I know I have been a very inactive member, and truth be told I haven’t really been doing much riding, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t had a few things in the works.
The first that I would like to announce is that OUI will be happening this year. Last year was a bit of a disappointment for many and I let a lot of people down by not getting my act together with it.
This year thanks to the kind folks at MEC, I have teamed up with MEC bikefest to bring you the trials portion of OUI. At the moment the date looks like it will be June 20th. I know that it is father’s day but there will be tons of stuff going on there for family as well.
With the trials on Sunday there will also be muni on Saturday and details for that remain to be determined.
At the moment, I’ve talked with the program coordinators about having a trials competition with lots of spectators, and an intro to unicycling workshop, with potentially more to follow.
Details are still being hashed out but the location looks like it will be Lebreton flats once we get the docs all signed by the NCC.
If you would like to help out with any facet of the event, please send me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As far as I know there’s also Max and Marty from Kingston who are comming as well. Well, it’s gonna be a fun competition. Oh, there might also be Wolfgang and 2 kids from Gatineau, I could maybe get 2 other:)
My parents are going to come, but only watching, they still can’t ride;)
Hey Jacob, at the moment you are the only person who is planning on going to Legacy or ride downtown. So if you are interested maybe we could do the legacy ride after the muni ride, then I could probably also drive you if you need a ride.
Sounds good to me, but you’ll have to show me a map(google maps) of where exactly we’re going to met for the Muni ride.
I would get a ride to the muni place and a ride back home probably, you could just give me a ride from the Muni to the Legacy Skate park, that would be cool. We could give up the ride downtown too, unless you want to ride, because if were only 2 we can just do it another day in the summer with some other people from Ottawa and Gatineau.
