Spring is (officially anyways) here! That means that our weekend rides are back in rotation! This week we’ll be leaving from Colchester School at noon on both Saturday and Sunday. Please keep an eye on our Twitter feed (@VelcoityBikeAB) for last minute updated on the ride.

As the weather continues to warm up, we’ll be rolling out the rest of our weekly rides. Stay posted!

On a different note, our 2017 Club Sign-Up is Open and you can finally sign up with Velocity for an ABA License! If you taking part in or plan on taking part in our winter activities, please sign up for 2017 membership ASAP.

UPDATE: Ride location and time has been changed for Saturday, March 18. The ride will now meet at Colchester School at 12:00pm. 

UPDATE 2: Sunday Ride Cancelled! 

Are you thinking of going to the Penticton Training Camp this year? Then book now! The Tiki Shores will only be reserving our block of rooms until March 15. For more information, please see the event page. 

It seems like the Spring Thaw is finally coming out way. With that in mind tonight will likely be our final XC Ski night, so come on out Gold Bar Park at 7:00pm to wish the snow farewell for another year. With all the melting that is sure to happen this week, be sure to keep an eye on our twitter account for the latest about Saturday’s ride. Depending on the conditions, it could be anything from a Fatbike ride to a Road Ride!

We are also wrapping up our Indoor Training Sessions at Aerobic Power with this weeks session. Confused? This session wasn’t a part of the original plan, but it is a make-up class for one that was cancelled in February.

On a different note, our 2017 Club Sign-Up is Open and you can finally sign up with Velocity for an ABA License! If you taking part in or plan on taking part in our winter activities, please sign up for 2017 membership ASAP.

And …… it’s winter! Because of the icy condition, there will not be a ski this (Monday) evening, but given the forecast, we might have another chance to get out there yet.

This weather also means its perfect time for Zwift! If you are interested in doing some Zwift races or rides and want your fellow club members to join you, make sure you post them on the Zwift Google Group so that everyone can join you.

On a different note, our 2017 Club Sign-Up is Open! The sign-up page is now active on Karleo. If you taking part in or plan on taking part in our winter activities, please sign up for 2017 membership ASAP.

Winter was gone, but now it’s (sort of) back! Our schedule is as usual, but please make sure you check the Twitter (@VelocityBikeAB) for last minute updates in this unpredictable weather. On that note, it sounds like there is still a bit of snow at GoldBar, so plan on coming out for an XC Ski this (Monday) evening!

That all means it might be the perfect time for Zwift! If you are interested in doing some Zwift races or rides and want your fellow club members to join you, make sure you post them on the Zwift Google Group so that everyone can join you.
