Our marquee ride, every Saturday our groups head out into Glen Valley and beyond. The route may change but a typical Saturday from the bridge start and back can be found below.
These weekday rides are shorter than our Saturday ride. Depending on the amount of sunshine available the route my vary but the basic route can be found in the link below.
The club is known for our well organized and fun events that we host. Our marquee ride is the Mt. Baker fondo that is fully supported. Each year brings new challenges and unique rides for all skill levels.
Our race team and members enjoy racing the spring series, fondos, cyclocross, and other events through the year. Click the link below to see upcoming races across BC. Reach out for more info.
Group A: This group is for those riders who like to ride fast with periods of extreme efforts. There are very few regrouping opportunities and if you cannot keep up, you might get left behind (usually you can regroup with Group B that will be following but could be doing a different route). If you are feeling strong and up for a challenge, this group is for you.
Top Speeds on flat roads: 45 km/h with sprints hitting 50-55 km/h. Average Speeds on flat roads: 37-44km/h
Group B: This group is for experienced riders and/or riders who are in good physical shape. This group will regroup at the top of every hill and is essentially a no drop ride. If you are newer to group riding and cannot hold 30 km/h in a group or 25-27 km/h on your own we recommend you start riding with Group C before trying Group B.
