Note: Some series start later early in the season. Check the calendar.
Series Training Rides
Tuesdays at 10 a.m.
Where are you on the super-jock to just-off-the-couch continuum? Is this the training ride for you? YES, wherever you are on the continuum! We ride by time, not distance. You ride out as far as you can in the set time and then ride back to the start.
Hill Tops and Coffee Shops
Wednesdays at 10 a.m.
This Intermediate/Challenging training program is meant to increase a cyclist’s strength required for hill climbing and riding into headwinds, as well as exploring Edmonton coffee shops. It is not designed for beginners.
Stamina Builder Ultime
Saturdays at 10 a.m. (after initial 11 a.m.)
A training program for cyclists who want to progressively build endurance to complete 100k by July. This series does require a commitment to cycling during the week as both distance and pace increases weekly.
Stamina Builder Optimum
Sundays at 10 a.m. (after initial 11 a.m.)
A training program for cyclists looking at increasing their endurance and building independent riding skills. These Sunday morning rides enable member riders to progressively build stamina to complete 60km rides comfortably by the end of June.
Stamina Builder Enduro
Sundays at 11 a.m.
This series is a training program for very experienced cyclists looking at increasing their endurance to complete 160k.
Series Social Rides
Monday Recreational Rides
Mondays at 6:30 p.m.
We’ll start with 16-18 km on mostly paved paths and roads, then increase to about 40 km, with a stop for coffee and snacks. As we start in Rundle Park, we always begin with a climb out of the river valley.
Mondays at 7 p.m. starting May 29
Need a nice leisurely ride to recover from a hectic weekend? Join other cyclists for six weeks of exploring a mix of multiple use trails, country roads and residential streets including a variety of hills and flat terrain.
County and Urban Tuesday Rides
Tuesday at 6 p.m.
Get to know some of our nice rural and urban roads all around Edmonton. This bi-weekly fast paced social ride series offers cyclists 40km to 70k ride progressions as our summer days get longer.
Wednesdays at 3 p.m.
These mid-afternoon rides will alternate between some of our favourite rural roads in the west end and more hilly city routes, mostly on quiet roads.
Thursday Longer Recreational Rides
Thursdays at 10 a.m.
These are longer social rides with stops to chat/regroup and have a bite. Though not training rides we, will move at a pace sufficient to cover distances starting at 30 km and going to 80 – 100 km later.
City Cross Country Rides
Thursday at 6:00 p.m.
We’re in the city but on dirt trails going cross country. Sometimes we ride bits of asphalt to connect to the more enjoyable ups and downs of dirt trails. Anyone with a mountain or fat bike is welcome on these non-technical, no drop rides. E-mountain and e-fat bikes are welcome.
Friday Quiet Roads
Fridays at 10 a.m.
These will be more relaxed rides for veterans of road cycling and for cyclists with experience on urban bike paths who want to try rural routes.
Friday Night Lights
Fridays at 6:30 p.m.
Want to get the weekend started early? These rides will limber you up for the weekend as we test out locally owned café/bakeries.
Loop de Loop Saturdays
Saturdays at 10 a.m.
If you haven’t ridden for a while, need a recovery ride after the previous killer or just like to gawk, these no-drop rides are for you. We’ll have two short routes. After the first, call it quits or head out on the second.
Sunday Social Rides
Sundays at 10 a.m.
Similar to Friday Quiet Roads, this ride will progress to longer distances in the summer. It is a no drop ride with coffee and socializing during or after the ride.
