*WINTER GROUP RIDE UPDATE*
With the early and somewhat unplanned arrival of winter, our formal group rides are on hold until the temperatures and snow conditions allow for proper winter riding.
The ride schedule, difficulty level, departure time, and meet-up location will remain the same as below, except that there will be no organized ride on Wednesdays. Also note that there is still an interclub endurance ride that leaves from Rosso on Sundays at 11:00am.
Stay tuned for notice as to when the group rides start up again - both fatbikes and non-fatbikes are welcome!
1. Monday Night Trail Rides:
This is a mountain bike group ride meeting at Rosso Pizzeria at 6:15 pm and leaving at 6:30 pm. Rosso Pizzeria is the restaurant located across the street from redbike. We are located at 10918-88 Ave. This is intended to be a fun trail ride for all levels of mountain biking with a "no drop" rule, but you are required to have some basic cycling skills since we will be riding as much technical singletrack as we can find. While the group leaders will be carrying extra equipment, we would recommend that each rider be self sufficient.
2. Wednesday Night Optional Rides:
This is a club member optional night where we change the rides every week. Some days we will go for a race pace mountain bike ride, an adventurous cross ride or if the weather doesn't allow us to go for a ride, we will do a trail maintenance night. Please check the updates below for more information for the week's Wednesday rides.
3. Thursday Night Trail Rides:
This mountain bike ride is intended for the seasoned trail rider who wishes to go out and ride the trails at a consistent pace but doesn't necessarily want to bust a lung. We will link the more techinical trails and session them if need be for a fun night of riding. This will be considered a "gentleman's/gentlewoman's ride" so make sure you are self sufficient if you want to join the group. We still meet up at Rosso at 6:15pm leaving at 6:30pm.
There is a trail ride meeting at 11:00am. This is an interclub fun ride where we just head out on the trails and recover from the weekend activities.
There will be rides added and cancelled throughout the year depending on weather, group leader availability, races and other unforeseen events, so please check the updates below. Please note that if you plan on racing or joining us on frequent club rides, you are required to purchase a club membership. This includes the insurance that would cover each rider in the group. There are two options for club membership: The first is at a cost of $99 and includes the ABA membership, insurance, redbike T-shirt, 15% off accessories/parts and guaranteed good times. The second membership costs $150 and is the same as the first option, but you get a redbike race jersey instead of a t-shirt.
Anyone who wishes to join the redbike race team, please contact Brent or Mark at the store. It really is a fun experience and will help you improve all aspects of your cycling. I just do it for the 15% off discount for team members.
