About Our Events
*Membership is required to attend all rides*
During the spring, summer and fall EBTC runs numerous bicycling day rides and out-of-town trips. Choices range from a short evening ramble to a challenging multi-day trip. You may get to know us by attending a regular weekly event such as the social Wednesday night Show and Go or the Tuesday evening workout “Sweat Ride”. For those people new to riding in a group or riding longer distances, consider signing up for the Cycling 101 course.
During the winter, EBTC offers a some recreational and social events in its schedule. During the week, the Wednesday evening Show and Go changes to walks in the city if there is no snow. Some EBTCers have an informal group that cycles in the winter on fat bikes and mountain bikes.
Members of the Edmonton Bicycle and Touring Club tend to be a friendly group who enjoy getting together for fun times. Whether it is getting together for coffee after a ride or spending some weekend hours “Neon Bowling”, we have fun and would be pleased if you could join us.
The Tour de l’Alberta (TDA) is the EBTC’s annual flagship event. It is a one day event held each July with a 100km and 50km. This fun ride takes you through some of the French Heritage towns and villages, north of Edmonton. It is not a race, but does celebrate to some minor degree the difficulty and challenges of the professional cyclists of the peloton in the “Tour de France”. More information about this ride can be found in the calendar of events.
These are day trips that repeat on the same day of the week over a number of weeks. They change with the seasons; cycling in the spring, summer and fall, walking during the spring, fall and sometimes winter as well. Registration for the weekly events is normally not required so just show up … you just have to be a current EBTC member.
