Ride & Race

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 (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 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 Race Pace Rides:

This is race pace ride leaving Rosso Pizzeria at 6:30pm.  This ride is meant for redbike club members who want to use the ride 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 11:30am.  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.

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.


The redbike redcross is coming!!!

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.


June 25, 2014

The singletrack is going to be slick so we are going for a double track spin for an hour.


June 11, 2014

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.


June 10, 2014

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.

Hey kids.  We have been relatively lucky with the weather for our Monday night rides so far this season, but with the recent afternoon rain and cold weather, we have decided to cancel the ride for tonight.  The trails are going to be too wet, muddy and fragile to ride.  We have a long season of riding ahead of us so have a rest day and watch a romantic comedy.

Don't dream it's over kids. The rain is forcing us to cancel yet another Wednesday ride. Bummer. I'm glad that some of us raced last night.


May 28,2014

Well, it looks like another rainout for tonight's ride.
