redbike Club Group Rides

Please check the updates below

 

1. Mondays, there is a redbike mountain bike group ride meeting at Rosso Pizzeria (formerly the Da Capo caffe) at 6:15 pm and leaving at 6:30 pm.  Rosso Pizzeria is the restaurant located across the street from the Redbike store located at 10918-88 Ave.  This is intended to be a fun trail ride for most levels of mountain biking, but you are required to have some basic cycling skills since we will be riding as much technical single track as we can find.

2. Wednesdays, there will be a redbike race pace ride meeting and leaving Rosso Pizzeria at 6:30pm.  This ride is meant for redbike raceteam members to use as a training session and for others who wish to ride at a fast and techincal level to improve their cardio and bike handling skills. 

3. Sundays, 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.We highly encourage people who plan on racing or joining us on frequent club rides 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.

I'm back from Cuba, and now I have to deal with a 60 degree temperature swing.  With the windchill pushing -35C tonight, it would be advisable that everyone stay home tonight and hope that Sunday will be warmer.

Well it's 2014, and it's been quite the diabolical winter so far with the many fluctuations from -40 degree to 6 degree causing inconsistent trail conditions.  But, we have been enjoying the winter rides regardless.  Sunday January 5th, the Sunday winter ride is changing locations to United Cycle so we can ride to the velodrome via MillCreek to support the Waffle Cross.  The meeting time is still 11:00 to 11:30 but leaving promptly at 11:30 as usual.

Important Update:

The Sunday winterclub group ride time is now at 11:30am at Rosso.  You may come earlier for coffee and to warm up, but we are leaving promptly at 11:30am.

 

The Wednesday night group ride will still meet at Rosso at 6:30pm.

Due to lack of group leaders, we are tentatively cancelling the Wednesday night trail ride.  If any club rider wish to meet up and go for a ride, please do so as the weather looks propitious.  Please check facebook or this blog to check to see if we can get someone to lead the ride in time.

Hello everyone.  I know its been a while since I made an update, but to be honest, all the group rides have been good to go lately.  It's cyclocross season, but we are still keeping the Monday and Wednesday night trail rides still for mountain bikes.  There are thoughts of making the Sunday rides cross rides, but since there is going to be a cross race every Sunday for the next 2 months, we are just going to leave it up to people to decide what they are going to ride.

If you like hot and humid, come by tomorrow for our holiday Monday ride at Rosso leaving at 11:00am.  Bring two water bottles if you can handle it.

20% chance of rain? We will take and run. Get your mountain bikes ready boys and girls as we are going trail riding Monday. Two postponed rides is just about long enough. Rosso at 6:30. Game over rain, game over.


June 10, 2013

Needless to say, today's Monday night trail ride is postponed due to wet weather.  We had favorable weather in May, and so we are paying for that now as the weather calls for some rain off and on for the next week.  Keep tuned for updates in regards to this Wednesday's ride as we are looking at going for a cross ride if the singetrack trails are still too wet to ride.


June 2, 2013

It seems that we went from winter to summer to spring.  The purported much needed rain seems to be upon us so it looks like we are going to cancel this week's Monday night ride.  Because it is still raining Sunday evening, it is most likely the trails will be too wet to venture out on.  We need to acknowledge that mountain biking on the wet trails adds to their deterioration so we will just wait and hope that next Monday's weather will be more favorable.  Just as a side note, a few of us may be heading out on our cross bikes to do some double track pavement riding.

Looks like the recent rain will make for some tacky sweet trail riding.  Wear some bug spray and I'll see you tonight at 6:30 at Rosso.  I am looking forward to some fun trail riding after the weekend's race in Pemberton.
