We are getting the 1970's founders of the reformed Ottawa Bicycle Club, and 70's and 80's members together for an evening of nostalgia. Bob Oades, Peter Tyler, John Smeaton,
Brian Parkin, Roy Fowler, Ian Brown, Ken Smith, Dick Henly, Peter Davidson, Judy Dietiker, Doug Corner, Steve Hall, Brian March among others are planning to come (Alan Large is resting in preparation for surgery and is unable to make it). We will have club trophies and photographs on display.

We have been unable to get in touch with some of the 70's members like Bert Dodd, John Parsons, Debra Abramovitch, and Ernie Trischuk. If anyone knows of their whereabouts or is in contact with them, please invite them along on our behalf.
