Lot’s on the list this week, so I’ve separated it into headings to make things easier to navigate. Just looking for the daily schedules? Right to the bottom!
New Club Clothing
The big news of the week is that our long awaited club clothing online store is up and running! We’ve made a switch to Jakroo which has allowed the club to do the entire order process online. What this means is that when you login and order something, it will show up at your doorstep. For more information, have a look at the Club Clothing Page.
In other news, registration is up and running for our Climbing Camp in Jasper, AB on June 2-4. Please have a look at the Climbing Camp page for all the details.

Learn to Group Ride Clinics
If you missed it last week, make sure you make this week’s Learn to Group Ride Clinic! If you are new to the sport of cycling, want learn some road riding etiquette, and become more comfortable riding in a group, these are the perfect rides for you! They will start at 6:30pm in Hawrelak Park, at the first major picnic area on the right (Site #1) at 6:30.
