Wednesday night races! The bread and butter of the ORS. Race your bike pals, race yourself, just come out and get faster!
WHEN: Wednesday Nights. From April to end of August. Races start at 6:30. Come 15 minutes early to register.
WHERE: Douglas Park Hill. Meet at the concrete look out at the base of the hill.
WHO: All ORS members are welcome. Men, women, kids and spectators! You MUST be a member to race (insurance requirement!). NO EXCEPTIONS!
WHAT: Select the number of laps you want to complete. Usually start the season off with 1, 3, or 5 lap options. Then once everyone has found their legs again we move to 2,4,6 lap options. Pick what suits you! No pressure, just challenge yourself.
WHY: Why not?
The 2023 Wednesday night races are under way! We've adopted Strava as our timing platform again.

Strava added some security features that are on by default. These are great, but interfere with getting you accurate timing at the race.
Hiding start/end of all rides needs to be off or the segments will be excluded from your ride
In the app on mobile:
Click on "You" bottom right
Click the gear top right
Halfway down, under the Preferences heading, tap "Privacy Controls"
Halfway down, under "Additional Controls", tap "Map Visibility"
Tap the middle option, "Hide the start and end points of activities no matter where they happen"
Slide the slider to "No meters hidden"
While you're there, do add your home/work address to the top option, hide the start and end points at specific address. It's also worth hiding your regular locations in all the apps you share gps data to.
