Full Moon Bike Ride

Friday, April 19th , 2019

A FUN, FREE EVENT – Full Moon Rides are focused on casual paced, fun adventures along our city’s lovely pathway and parks network. Suitable for all ability levels, we only go as fast as the slowest rider. Never been on a group ride before? Join us for a guaranteed good time.

On these rides, we usually head to a local park and build a bonfire… but we like to shake things up a bit so sometimes stop at coffee shops, micro-breweries, restaurants or we combine it with other bike events along the way.

This month come prepared for a BBQ at Edworthy Park in celebration of the full moon (also known at the Pink moon), Earth day and Easter! The weather will dictate our final destination, we may still ride to an indoor location. Lights are mandatory!!!

Meet at the shop (1325 1 Street SE) at 7:30 pm. Ride departs at 8:00pm sharp.

Mad Max Ride

Saturday, June 22nd , 2019

The Mad Max Ride is a FREE critical mass, post-apocalyptic themed ride featuring music, art, costume and motion.

The ride is inclusive so all ages who ride bikes, rollerblade, use a scooter or skateboard are invited. This ride is particularly timely in light of new safety rules approved by City Council allowing more types of users on the cycle tracks. The post apocalyptic theme is a fun way to encourage participants to make creative costumes and decorate their wheels from reclaimed materials.

Leading up to the ride, we will be hosting a number of workshops where participants will be able to make their own costumes and decorations with instruction from local artists and makers. We encourage musical entries making use of special bike trailers and cargo bikes. The ride will roll through the inner city utilizing pathways all while showcasing our active transport parade to Calgarians. Finally, our ride will end at Sled Island’s Block Party in Inglewood – an all ages, free music event. We’re getting local businesses to participate too and encouraging them to sponsor entries. There will be prizes for best costumes and best decorated wheels, best engineered entry, best musical entry, etc!

Mark your calendars now, more details and free Eventbrite registration will be available here soon.
