September 21 - 27 Weekly Update

Weekend Ride Locations and Time Change

This weekend we’ll change-up the ride start locations. And our start times will change to 11:00am.

Saturday will start at Colchester Elementary School – 23358 Township Rd 520, Sherwood Park.

Sunday will start from the Enjoy Centre – 101 Riel Dr, St. Albert.

It might be all for nought this weekend, as it seems we may have another blast of winter weather on its way. If that’s the case, I suggest you hop on your ‘cross bike or tune up your fat bike for some trail riding this weekend.

Member-Only Harvest Ride

Plans are in the works to hold a club-only Harvest Ride this year, on Sunday October 21.

Our idea is to hold a Mountain Bike / ‘Cross / Fat Bike / BMX ride in the Blackfoot grazing reserve. We’ll start from the Waskahegan staging area just off RR210 at 11:00 am

This ride can cover many trails in the Blackfoot area that are suitable for all of these “off road” bikes.

Everyone would meet back at the parking lot around 1:30pm for hot dogs in the picnic shelter.

Please stay tuned as we firm up these details.

Stefan Ritter Update

Stefan is improving, but still has a long way to go. He should be moved out of the ICU into a ward bed as soon as one comes available. He is communicating, so we’re hopeful he’ll make a full recovery. More time is obviously needed. Please keep Stefan in your thoughts …

Weekly Ride Schedule Summary

Saturday departs from Colchester Elementary at 11am. The ride will head south and east on different roads from our rides earlier in the season.

The Sunday Ride meets at 11am in the parking lot of The Enjoy Centre for a loop west that’s not so hilly.

The Tuesday City Hill Circuit meets in Hawrelak Park at 6:00pm. We’re running out of daylight for this ride, so we’ll only ride Zoo Hill 4x.

Wednesday offers you the Midweek Cyclocross Race at Goldbar Park, 7pm.
