Hey riders! I am delighted to welcome you to the new 2015 website of the Edmonton Bicycle and Touring Club. Here you will find a description of opportunities for all levels of cycling experience to ride socially in the Edmonton area nearly every day of the week, and overnight touring to both local and exotic locales.
Our ride captains last season kept us on the open road and trails every single day of the week, and organized overnight trips to some of North America’s premier cycling destinations. Thank you to everyone who provided leadership to these rides.
Safety and Education presented a new single day version of Cycling 101 in 2014, and is planning on providing several opportunities to learn from our Canbike qualified instructors in 2015.
The 2014 season saw us partner with the Town of Morinville in presenting the 20th Anniversary of the Tour de l’Alberta. Over 1500 cyclists of all ages and experience enjoyed a sunny windless day in the camaraderie and joy of cycling, all thanks to our wonderful group of volunteers.
This season will be exciting. Established rides will include new leadership, and plans are underway for more overnight rides. Target the Tour endurance training rides will begin in April, so get those quads ready to burn!
I hope to see you all on the road in 2015.
