Single-day Rides

  • Morinville-Legal Loop – Monday, May 22 – a fairly leisurely 55 km no-drop ride through the countryside north of Edmonton. A regular favourite of many EBTC members.
  • Vegreville Two Hills – Saturday, July 8  – Come and enjoy a rolling hill ride that begins at the Vegreville Pysanka. This 100km ride is a round trip to/from Vegreville. There will be a support vehicle to carry extra water and snacks plus any personal items. Lunch and ice cream treats can be bought in Two Hills or bring your own.
  • Ft Saskatchewan Brunch Ride – Sunday, August 6 is an Intermediate ride, but ideal for those of you who are wanting a slower paced ride with some distance and extra time to socialize (50 km in total), and of course eat!
  • Miquelon LakeSaturday, August 19 – two start points for different distances, 95 km or 45 km. As in past years, we’ll have snacks provided at the lake for a leisurely social visit before heading back.

Multi-day Trips

  • Drumheller Get-Away – May 26/27 to 28/29 Hub and Spoke format. Flexible start and end dates to accommodate working stiffs as well as free-range seniors. Rides distances of 30 – 50 km with 150 – 400 m of climbing. We will group-up periodically so nobody gets left behind and may break into two groups – faster and slower. There are two recommended hotels and a campground nearby. Great views of the badlands, and the wonderful Tyrell Museum and Atlas Coal Mine are nearby. Contact June MacGregor.
  • May 25, 2024 – South France Bike and Barge –  Expect leisurely cycling in mostly flat areas, with only few short climbs and descents. Suitable for most people. A total of 240 km of cycling on 95% paved routes and 620 m of total ascent. The barge for this trip is equipped with 11 cabins (1 single, 2 doubles, 8 twins). Please note that this trip will be available solely to EBTC members for one month (end of February 2023 until to March 31, 2023). It is important that members sign-up and pay their deposits early if they want to join in on the fun! After March 31 2023, registration will open to anyone interested.  Accommodation, and touring and E-bike prices for 2024 is now available. Cathy Walsh is happy to field questions about the trip!
