Velocity CX September 4

Details are coming together for this year’s CX opening weekend. We will need your help to pull off the event though. Big thanks so far to Jason Redfern for being our lead organizer again this year!

Saturday Club Ride

With temperatures of 30° expected this weekend, we’ll push the start time an hour earlier. The Saturday ride will leave at 9am from the Ardrossan Rec Centre.

The route will be about 72kms and head up to Fort Saskatchewan.

Bring lots of water. For those riding out, you can refill your bottles inside the Rec Centre.

Hot temperatures are still expected for Sunday too. This ride will also start at 9am.
