MCA Road Coordinator (2020-2021)

Despite restrictions with COVID-19 this season, road cycling, so far, has been a discipline where we can offer training, competition, and perhaps something even more creative that would inspire our community in 2021.

The Road coordinator position is an important role as they are YOUR voice. This position chairs the road committee which has one road representative from each club that is interested in being part of the team. The club representive brings ideas from their club members up to the committee level. Decisions being made by the committee flow down to the club members via the club representative. Without this communication flow we cannot make things better. Please help as strengthen road cycling in Manitoba and be part of the change you want to see happen.
