The St. Albert Bike Association (SABA) is a non-profit society created with the goal of increasing awareness and participation of all types of cycling within the city of St. Albert.
SABA is run by a group of dedicated cyclists that come from all walks of life, but all live in St. Albert and have a common vision of getting our vibrant community more active through the excellent sport of cycling.
The organization was founded in 2013 by a group of residents that felt the city needed a place where cyclists from all walks of life, tastes in cycling, and differences in skill level could come together as a community.
With the intention to raise awareness of cycling and all the great benefits it provides a rider, a community, a city – SABA will be working with local business, local schools and local government to create programs that enhance and enrich the lives of people that find joy pedaling on two wheels (or one!).
SABA meets regularly with group rides every Thursday evening during the cycling season. Please watch our Events Page or the SABA Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/stalbertbikeassociation) for the most up to date information about group rides and other upcoming events.
Memberships to SABA are available and provide a number of benefits:
- Insurance – All SABA members in good standing, carry comprehensive general liability coverage provided through IMBA Canada/Oasis Insurance. This policy covers all members who are either directly on their way to or from, or are at, an event sponsored by SABA
- Group Rides – SABA operates group rides throughout the season. Due to insurance regulations, you must have a membership in order to regularly participate in any SABA hosted ride or event (you are able to ‘try before you buy’ and join SABA for one group ride without obligation to sign up as a member). Membership signup will be available at every event so that you can immediately join and participate!
- Member Pricing – Events, clinics workshops, merchandise offered by SABA will often have a discounted rate for members of the club.
- A Voice – as a member of SABA you will have an opportunity to help shape the direction and future of cycling in St. Albert.
