South Carolina COMEBACKKK

Hi Everyone!

Now that we’ve entered winter break, it’s time to start looking forward to the far superior school break- spring reading week and THE COMEBACK OF MCT’s annual trip to South Carolina!!!

Each year, until Covid struck and cancelled our plans for 2 years ( :sleepy:), the team makes the 18 hour drive down to South Carolina for a week of riding in nice weather, and relaxing together. It’s always a great escape from school and the winter weather in Montreal, and everyone who’s gone in the past can vouch for how fun it is!

This year, we will leave Montreal the evening of Friday February the 24th, and drive through the night until arriving. During the week we’ll all stay together in a big lake-front house, and cook meals to share. We’ll return to Montreal on Sunday March 5th, so no nerds have to miss class :relaxed:

There will be 6 full days of riding, as well as two part days on the day we get there and the day we leave. All levels of riders are welcome to come! Each day, a beginner (40-60km), intermediate (80-120km) and advanced (120km+) ride will be leave from the house.

The trip cost should be about the same as previous years, around $350 per person (which includes transportation, accommodation, and food for the week!) Additionally, if you can provide a car to take to South Carolina, the fee will be reduced. If more people are interested in coming than we have space in the house, priority will be given in the following order: McGill students, alumni, then community members. NOTE: you must be a Team Member to come on the trip, so you will need to register with athletics if you plan to come.

The trip is one of McGill Cycling’s biggest events of the year, and is always highly anticipated. It’s a great opportunity to get back on the bike before the ECCC race season begins, and to ride in warm weather while it’s still snowy in Montreal. If you’re at all interested in coming with us, please sign up in the poll below, and watch for the official sign up post in the new year!

Here’s a new poll, so I can keep track of who’s responded:

  • 100% will be there
  • 75% on the fence/circumstantial
  • 50% unsure
  • 0% can’t come this year :frowning:

0 voters

old poll, (it was aesthetic but not practical):

  • 100% will be there!
  • 75% on the fence/ circumstantial
  • 50% unsure…
  • 0% can’t come this year :frowning:

And finally, here’s a video from 2020 which shows some of the fun that’s in store!
