redbike Club Group Rides

Please check the updates below

 

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.

4. 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. 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.

So since the Fattire Tuesday race is cancelled, we are going for a chill cross ride tonight at 6:30 leaving from Rosso as usual.


May 24 Fat tire Tuesday is cancelled

With this past weekend's deluge we have decided to cancel the Tuesday race out at Terwillegar so the trails have a chance to soak up all of Mother Nature's tears. Sorry folks, when doves cry, there is no mountain bike racing. See you all this weekend out at the races at Sunridge.


May 19 Thursday group ride is now a go with Kurt

Okay, so it looks like it may not rain till later on in the evening. Kurt is keen to go for a ride this evening rain or shine so the ride is back on for tonight. Woohoo!


April 25, 2016

Well, it's cold and there's wolves after me! Actually, there was some mild rain throughout the day today, and with the cold temperatures, we decided to cancel tonight's trail ride. I know what everyone is thinking: The trails are like totally ridable so lets head out and rip it up, but I think we should be responsible and let the trails fully recover from the super dry conditions and the recent rain. The good news is that we are rescheduling the ride to this Thursday.  We are going to break into appropriate groups for this Thursday so everyone can come out. 


April 24, 2016

Well, with the rivervalley fires, snow and wet trails, we are postponing our Sunday mountain ride. Sorry for the late notice everyone, but have a rest day or go for a cross ride if you are up for it.


April 11, 2016

Mondays, Mondays, Mondays! The sun is shining, and yes, the air is still chilly as it's April, but the trails are mint and ready to ride. If you didn't get a chance to get your club membership, don't worry about it as of yet since you get a freebie ride. So, we will be meeting at Rosso at 6:15pm and leaving at 6:30. 


Wednesday April 6

The time has finally come! We are starting our group rides tomorrow evening (Thursday) leaving from Rosso at 6:30pm. This will be the standard Thursday night vibe, so the pace will fairly fast without a lot of stopping as we check out the drier singletrack in the valley. For the more laid back crowd, our Monday 6:30pm rides start next week, so we look forward to seeing our loveable Monday crowd then. Please remember to stop by the shop and renew your club membership in the coming days so you can keep getting your sweet shop discount and so we are covered by the ABA insurance while we are out on the trails. Also remember to inflate your tires, lube your chain, and test your brakes and shifting if you haven't touched your bike since the fall to make for a more enjoyable group ride experience for everyone. See you soon!


February 25, 2016

Hey everyone. I went for a cross ride yesterday in the hopes that the paved trails were dry and we can go for a fun mid-winter cross ride, but those hopes were dashed as I hit one slab of ice after another. I would say that the trail conditions are at a "no win" situation as the singletrack is a mix of ice, mud and chopped up snow and the doubletrack is roughed up ice. I'm afraid that we are going to postpone the Thursday night ride until conditions improve. If you are game to go, you can drop by Rosso at 6:30 to see if anyone else is riding. Cheers for now.


February 21, 2016

Well, with more capricious weather thrown at us this 2016 winter, we are looking at cautious trail riding. Now that we are back from Sedona, we are looking at getting back at the weekly fatbike riding, but for today, we are going for a "check out the trails" day since the reports of trail conditions have been variable. The end goal for today is to get back to Rosso by 1:00pm so we can buy Steve Martins some beer for guiding us in Sedona. Once we have some solid trail reports, we can plan our routes a bit better. So, as of now, stay safe and enjoy the riding.


Monday, Nov 9

Don't hate the messenger, but we've decided to put the formal Monday rides on hold until things can dry up or freeze over. We encourage everyone to keep riding in the meantime though - stay tuned for updates as real winter descends upon us.
