 Welcome to the 2022 Season!

 

Registration is SOLD OUT for 2022

This year we are proudly working with Mamas for Mamas!
Proceeds from this years registration will go towards helping the local chapter here in the Okanagan


Here's all the important stuff that you need to know! 

When: Start date for 2022 is Monday April 25th

Who: If you are just starting out or have been riding for a few seasons, this is the group for you! We break up into skill-based groups and go from there. We do ask that you come prepared with a proper road bike (sorry! we can't have any time-trial, Mtb, or E-Bikes), a basic understanding of road riding, and a positive attitude. 

Mondays are our group ride for all levels. We split into 3 groups based on experience. Each group will then ride for about 20-40km (dependent on group) leaving at staggered times. 

C Group 23-25 Km/hour:   You are looking to build your confidence and cycling skills while becoming stronger and faster as the season progresses. 

Rides will start at 25km and gradually increase over the season.

B Group 25-27 Km/hour:  You are a skilled rider who wants to improve your cycling and group riding skills. 

A Group 27+ Km/hour:  You are a confident experienced rider who is looking for a challenge. You want longer rides, steeper climbs, and a faster pace.  You are also looking to improve and connect with other experienced riders.

Tuesdays are a hill climb. Route varies throughout the season and in the summer months we switch to morning rides so we can beat the heat.
This is for A/B group riders only as it's a faster paced ride.
