News and announcements

Please check back regularly for Tuesday Night Crits news and announcements:

  • Dec. 30 - We were heartbroken to learn of the death of Ellen Watters after she was hit by a car in New Brunswick on Dec. 23. Watters was a Tuesday night regular and a National Capital Region Cycling Bursary recipient. She will be deeply missed.
  • June 20 - A reminder that the Bill Patterson Memorial Criterium is happening on June 21. This event honours the late Bill Patterson, former CJOH sportcaster and great supporter of the Ottawa cycling community. Come out and watch if you're not racing.  Also, please note that the June 28 B crit is cancelled. We encourage you to instead go volunteer or spectate at the Canadian National TT champs being held in the Gatineau Park the same day.
  • May 3 - First event of the season was great. 66 riders came out for an evening of safe and positive racing. Thanks to all.
  • April 30 - Signed contract is in hand! Races are on! This Tuesday, May the 3rd, starting with a B crit. Don't forget to get yourselves registered at least 24hrs before the event starts. You MUST bring your cash, race license, and sign a waiver at your first event.
  • April 18 - We are still waiting for the green light from the NRC to use the roads on the Montreal Rd. campus, so we've decided to cancel the April 26 event and have a B race as the opening event of the season on May 3. The reason for hosting a B race as the first event is so that the Tuesday, June 21, between the Preston Street Criterium and the Canadian Road Championships. can be an A race for the out-of-town riders to attend. Anyone who signed up to volunteer on April 19 or 26, please contact Nicholas Vipond at tuesdaynightcrits@gmail.com to choose another Tuesday evening.
  • April 13 - We'd hope to be able to launch April 19, but are still working on the permissions and a few other things. Stay tuned for an announcement for pre-registration night. 
  • April 12 - We're working on a new Registration and Volunteering system, but it ain't ready yet. Watch for its launch, coming soon!
  • April 10 - Rules and Guidelines have been updated for 2016. Please read them carefully!
