The Casino Fundraiser is the single most important fundraising initiative Velocity Cycling Club operates. It occurs only once every 18 months and is responsible for nearly all of the membership benefits we offer. Without it, the most benefits would cease to exist and our youth funding (BMX) would be near-zero. Please support this major initiative by volunteering.
LIMITED TIME OFFER: Volunteers who sign up for the 2017 casino will receive a $25 discount on their 2017 Membership fees for each shift worked by themselves or a designated friend or family member.
You can learn more about the shifts, and sign up at our Casino Fundraiser Page
Sign up early to snag your favorite shift!

We have a winner! A huge congratulation to Stewart Wyllie for taking the win in only his second ‘cross race ever and in some pretty crazy conditions to boot. Congratulations Stewart! Greg Mash (11th in Sport Men, Puncheur Cross), Jordan Fischer (14th in Novice Men, Puncheur Cross), and Mark Faas (22nd in Sport Men, Burman U Cross) were also representing the club this weekend.
As you’ll see in the schedule below, our rider schedule is starting to thin out substantially. We’re working on our winter schedule right now (start getting excited for fat bike rides, indoor trainer sessions, and cross country skiing!), but for the time being we’ve started a Wednesday evening winter ride for fat bikes, ‘cross bikes, and mountain bikes alike. Remember to bring your lights!
You still have a little time to recognize some of the outstanding members who have contributed to make our club what it is by nominating them for a 2016 Velocity Cycling Club Award. If you have someone in mind, please fill out the form in the link by the end of today on Tuesday, October 18.
Velocicross was a huge success with record attendance, preposterously dirty bikes, and some of the craziest conditions every seen in Alberta. A huge thanks to everyone who stepped up to help make this event happen.
It was fall a week ago, but it looks like it’s winter now! Unfortunately winter means that a lot of our regular club rides are disappearing from the calendar. I’m working on a new slot of winter rides to fill there place, but for right now we are in the in between season. But don’t worry. There is still a ride on Tuesday and two ‘cross races this weekend to enjoy!
With that, the end of our cycling season is looming in the horizon. While that may be a little sad, it also means that it’s time to recognize some of the outstanding members who have contributed to make our club what it is by nominating them for a 2016 Velocity Cycling Club Award. If you have someone in mind, please fill out the form in the link
The 2016 Velocity Cycling Club Awards! The awards will be announced at the 2016 Year End Party on forth weekend of November (details to be confirmed).
The awards are an excellent opportunity to recognize those Velocity members that have been outstanding in what they do whether that be riding and racing, their commitment to the club, or by something else.
It’s that time of year again and our Cross race, Velocicross p/b Velocity Cycling Club and United Cycle is here on October 8 and 9 at the Fulton Ravine.
Volunteers Needed: We have a great weekend of racing in store, but we need some volunteers to help make it happen. There are plenty of positions where you can sign to to volunteer and still race. Please see our volunteer signup sheet for all the positions and descriptions.
For more information about the race, please see the page on our website.
A few members escaped to Montana for the weekend
Another week into fall and another foot of leaves on the ground. It seems like fall is here to stay. As that’s the case, we are busy planning for next year and need your help to make it a success! One way to do that is to volunteer for our Casino Fundraiser. The Casino is responsible for almost all of the membership benefits we offer and, for a limited time, you can get a $25 discount on your 2016 membership just by working a shift!
Our own race, Velocicross, is also fast approaching (October 8 and 9) and we still need lots of volunteers to help make it happen. Interested in helping out? You can sign up right here! There are plenty of positions where you can volunteer AND still race! Plus, don’t forget the Early Bird registration closes tonight on Zone4.
