After some reconnaissance rides this week, we are happy to announce that the redbike club rides are going start next week Monday the 20th. Since it's going to be the first ride of the year, expect it to be a fun and causal ride. It's, of course, an ABA sanctioned ride so please have your redbike club membership all sorted. We are meeting at Rosso at 6:15pm and leaving at 6:30pm for a 2ish hour ride.
Yeah it's really cold right now, but that's no excuse for letting your bike sit there in your garage and not riding. Well, it's suppose to be -9 on Sunday so come on out to the ride at Rosso at 11:00am. Come early for a coffee or hot chocolate and warm up a bit before we head out.
We are treating today like a holiday Monday so we are going for a winter trail ride at 10:00am. Sorry for the late notice, but Mondays night rides are on hiatus until we decide that people want a slower paced fatbike ride. There is still the Wednesday night rides and Sunday fatbike rides going all winter long.
Hey kids. Since it has been snowing and raining, we are going to cancel tonight's trail ride. Hopefully, things will dry up for next week's ride as we will continue to ride the singletrack until the snow flies. Once it does, we will continue to winter ride on Wednesday nights and stop the Monday rides. We will also continue the Sunday at 11:00am rides throughout the winter.
Our annual attempt at putting on a cyclocross race is fast approaching... Mark your calendars now - Sunday, September 14 at Hermitage Park (*note the change of venue!). This is our 5th anniversary, and whether you're interested in racing, volunteering and helping out, or just showing up to watch and heckle we'd love to see your smiling face there. If you're interested in racing, your regular redbike club membership is enough to get you in - you'll just have to fork over an extra $10 to the ABA for a single event racing license (SEL). If you'd like to help out and volunteer, the jobs are super easy and include help with course set-up/take down and course marshalling and come with a big slice of our eternal gratitude - talk to Mark or Shantel if you're interested.
It's the last month of summer, but there plenty of trail riding to be had before the snow flies. There are no races this weekend so Shanny and I are going to the Sunday Interclub ride tomorrow, then going to Brad's for a post ride drink and pizza. This holiday Monday, the usual rule applies: We are meeting at Rosso at 10:30, leaving at 11:00 for a steady speed trail ride. The weather looks pretty perfect so if you are in town, get out and join us.
Due to the sudden rain storm, we are canceling the Monday night ride. Sorry for the short notice.
The singletrack is going to be slick so we are going for a double track spin for an hour.
Well, here is the status for tonight's ride. The trails are still going to be too wet and muddy so we are going for a cross ride. If you do not have a cross bike, you can bring your mountain bike to ride the gravel double track.
As much as we would love to frolic in the mud whilst racing, the damage to the trails would be irresponsible. We are canceling tonight's Fattire Tuesday race due to cold and wet conditions. Sorry folks.
