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.

 

redbike Race Team

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.

Okay so it's raining. Let's just call it a rest day today. Have fun kids!


Thursday June 30 - showered out

Sorry folks - we've decided to cancel tonight's ride with the heavy showers during the day and the possibility of more showers this evening. We still encourage you to get out for a spin if you're feeling up to it, but stay off the trails where they are muddy. Have a great long weekend!


Thursday June 16 - Trail Maintenance!

Instead of hitting the trails for this week's Thursday ride, we are going to give back a bit, roll up our sleeves, and spend the evening doing some trail maintenance. Under the guiding hands of Brad and Dan, we will be working on some of Masters Degree and trimming back some of the recent green growth on the trails below the shop/university area. We will meet at the regular time and place (6:30pm at Rosso) and walk over to the trails - if you have any trail maintenance tools/gear (shovels, rakes, hedge trimmers, etc.) bring them along, but if not, we will have some extra tools on hand to keep everyone busy. Don't forget your mosquito repellent and sturdy footwear, as well as anything else you might need to make your evening an enjoyable one. Hope to see you all this evening!

Well, we had a really good run with the group rides, but mother nature has decided to bless us with more rain. The trail conditions were perfect for the races this weekend, but it rained really hard Sunday night and it's supposed rain most of the day and evening. Sorry to say, but we have to once again cancel Monday night's group ride. The good news is that the weather looks really good for Thursday night.


May 24, 2016

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 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!
