Types of riding we do
The club is primarily road cyclists (drop-bar) and a typical ride will be at an average of 29km/h and involve a route from Calgary varying in distance between 20 – 80 miles. On our weekend rides, we like to involve a coffee and cake stop to recharge our batteries.
Fast and furious, 50 minutes of eyeball-popping effort. Yet some of the safest and informal racing available which welcomes newcomers through to elite. Muddy marvellous! Thin tyres, thick mud and some of the most exciting racing you will ever come across. Races have a relaxed and have an informal atmosphere, great for socialising!
A criterium, or crit, is a bike race held on a short course often held on blocked-off city streets. The course is short, usually less than 5 km, and is a closed circuit, where riders complete multiple laps. Riders typically race for a given length of time, then complete a specified number of laps. An example would be a race of 60 minutes plus three laps.
The club has a very active mountain bike membership who ride a wide selection of styles including cross country and endurance. The events we attend are mainly aimed at cross country with a mixture of downhill technical, but you will find members riding and racing all over Alberta and B.C.
