Fort Saskatchewan Brunch
May 6 @ 09:30 - 16:00
The annual tradition continues – and what better way to start off your season than a “bike & eat” event?
Rated as an easy ride, the Ft. Saskatchewan Brunch Ride is a good event for those of you who are just starting to get into cycle touring, as well as the “old-timers” who want to start the cycling season with a fun ride. The roads are mostly flat, with a bit of a longer hill when you enter Fort Saskatchewan. Distance is 26 km each way. To a novice, this can sound intimidating, but we take our time and stop if we need to, so as long as you are reasonably fit, it is fairly easy to complete the ride. Plus, there’s the added bonus of that great brunch in the middle of the ride! (The challenge is in getting back on the bike after the brunch!)
The ride starts from Clareview Community Centre & Arena 3804 – 139 Avenue. The new restaurant for 2018 is The Canadian Brewhouse. They have a brunch and a regular menu you can also order from the menu for prices ranging from $12 – $20.00. You can also bring your own lunch & eat at the nearby recreation complex or go to the town park. Come and join us and start your cycling season off the best way possible.
