Full Moon Bike Ride (BBQ Cancelled)

Saturday, May 18th , 2019

Due to the rain, instead of a BBQ outdoors, we’re going to go on a very short group ride heading to The Ship and Anchor.

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

____________

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.

Mad Max Ride YYC

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 motivator to make creative costumes and decorate your wheels from reclaimed materials.

Leading up to the ride, we we’re hosting a number of workshops where you can make your 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, and more!

2nd Annual Bicycle Overnight Trip to Camp Chestermere

Saturday, July 6th, 2019

Mark your calendars! We’ve planned another fun, summer group ride to Chestermere Lake with almost the entire trip on paved separate pathways (about 30 km each way). We’ll be glamping overnight in bunk houses at Chestermere Camp and riding back in the morning. Bunkhouses come with mattresses, bring a sleeping bag and pillow. Full washroom facilities included. There is a beach, bring a bathing suite and towel if you want to swim. Also, bring food and camp cooking equipment as there there is only a fire pit available. You may also sleep in your own tent if a communal bunk house is not for you. The overnight stay is $30 per person in bunkhouse or tent. Eventbrite Reservations >>>> HERE <<<<.
