Crushing COVID

Riders have been feeling the summer time heat this week … and loving it!

By the end of today, we’ll have logged about 400km. Tomorrow we’ll be on the regular Saturday club ride. Then Sunday will see us take on a Century (ok, it’s actually 103 miles/166km).

Feeling like you’ve missed out? With enough interest, I will run this big week of riding again, leading into the September long weekend. Register >>HERE if you think this is for you.

Hit Up the Giro di YEG Principale Tappa

Our next Climbduro Challenge segment is open until the end of August. Everything you need to know to participate is on >>THIS PAGE>

Volunteers to Pilot Senior Trishaws

Remember earlier I mentioned you could volunteer to drive a Trishaw?

With summer weather here for August, I’m sure the residents of GEF Seniors Housing would still love a little spin through their community.

GEF owns three Trishaw bikes. Take a look at what they recently shared on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GEFSeniorsHousing/posts/3460396127317833

If you can volunteer some pedal time please contact Shelby Johnston by email sjohnston@gef.org or phone call 780-733-7682.
