The Cyclelogik PBC rides are starting up soon and we need ride leaders!
We need one very dedicated person to lead our B-ride or a number of leaders who can share the burden each week. Ideally we need someone who is skilled at pack riding and isn’t shy about speaking up and giving direction.
There are some great perks for being a Cyclelogik ride leader! So if you’re interested, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org!
The Calabogie Classic is the second Ontario Cup road race of the 2019 season!
It features a closed course on the Calabogie Motorsports track. It’s fast. It’s safe. And it’s fun! It’s the perfect season opener for the seasoned bike racer who needs to shake out the trainer and get their handling skills back on track. And it’s a great race for those new-to-bike racing who want to feel the thrill without risking much!
It’s not a technically challenging course but the sweeping corners make for an exhilarating experience.
Race Date: April 28th
The pathways east and west are still snow covered. Most of the park isn’t clear.. so how do you escape the city? We’ve got you covered!
Get out of the city and take an early season trip to Wakefield! This route features all paved roads and mostly smooth asphalt surface. You might find some potholes along the Northern section of Chemin de la Mine so watch out! But the ride from Notch to Wakefield is smooth and fast!
On Saturday May 4, 2019 Cyclelogik will once again play host to the ORCC Break the Cycle Spin-A-Thon! Join over a hundred participants as they spin to raise money for the Ottawa Rape Crisis Centre!
It was only a matter of time. Disc brakes on road bikes are a common sight as more manufacturers add disc versions of their bikes to their lineups. Disc brakes went through a controversial period, particularly for road racers. And in early 2018 the UCI finally approved disc brakes for use in UCI sanctioned events.
But triathlon has never been subject to the same sanctions and rules of the UCI. This includes frame design and scope. Disc brakes could have been in triathlon much earlier. But public opinion and skepticism about their benefits kept manufacturers from implementing the technology on triathlon bikes.
But that’s all changed.. Felt launched its 2019 Felt IA triathlon bike with disc brakes.
Controversial. Groundbreaking. Revolutionary. Cheating. Empowering.
There are lots of words that have been used to describe this bike and it all depends on how you look at it. It’s a road bike and it’s an eBike. And if you weren’t looking closely, you might not even realize it has a motor in it.
The bike wasn’t designed to make bike racers faster, or so they could gain an edge over their riding partners. It was created to allow riders to go further, ride longer, and overcome obstacles where they might otherwise be limited.
eBikes in general have been contraversial additions to the market. But for those who aren’t genetically gifted, who don’t have the time to train just to hang with the weekend club ride, an ebike can allow more riders the ability to interact with the sport. And ultimately we think that’s a good thing. More people on bikes is the ultimate goal, right?
This bike isn’t going to turn a middle-aged casual road cyclist into a Tour de France pro, but it will give that little nudge to get through the long ride or the big climb without needing 3 days of recovery. Most of us have to go home to responsibilities! We can’t all afford to spend the rest of the day on the couch recovering!
We know this bike won’t appeal to everyone. We know there will be purists out there who will never get on board with ebikes.
But before you judge, pop by the shop, and check it out! We hope this bike will provide more cyclists with the opportunity to enjoy cycling more often… we hope it will allow more people to explore greater distances… we hope it will keep people riding longer and later into life…
We are very excited about this bike!
We’re stoked on the new line-up of bikes coming our way in 2019. Everything from Commuters to MTBS to Road to Triathlon. There is a bike for everyone and every purpose at Cyclelogik.
Here’s a sneak-peak at some of the big changes and new models coming to our sales floor. More details to come about these awesome new bikes in the coming weeks!
Woven Precision Handbuilts have been providing Cyclelogik with artisan wheel sets for our customers for several years now. The quality of the builds are unmatched. And the value for the money is better than some of the top brands of equal quality.
In 2019 Woven is releasing their first disc wheel for triathletes and TT specialists. And the pre-sale is on!
Stop by the shop or send an email to email@example.com to pre-order your new disc!
No, no, no… not like THAT. It’s not weird. We promise. There’s no gimmicks or sticking points about this program other than it’s a consistent weekly program designed by one of the best and most experienced cycling and triathlon coaches in Ottawa. Period.
And it’s SILLY CHEAP! $249.99 for 30 classes! Each class is 90min in length! That’s cheaper than our cheapest drop-in package. So scroll down a little. Look for the Register button and click it. You can’t go wrong with this program. And if you’re really frugal and want to get best bang for your buck, register for this program, and pick up a couple of drop in passes for a Saturday morning class. You get a 75minute class for the price of a 60min class. That’s three epic rides/week. You’ll be gobbling up Blacks and Fortune like Peter Sagan gobbles up gummy bears.
Every year Cyclelogik hosts the ORCC Spin-a-Thon. This year we’ve decided to take it one step further and donate $1 for every person who signs up for our Wednesday night RideINSIDE class at 6:00pm.
If the class fills, we’ll double the donation!
