2014 Summer Group Rides

Our 2014 group ride schedule has been set and posted! The first group rides start on June 5th and this year we’ll be running both mountain bike rides and recreational rides on Thursday nights.  You choose how you want to ride!

Our mountain bike group rides will take place in Edmonton and will be staged out of either Terwillegar or Emily Murphy Park, depending on the date.  Recreational rides will take place in St. Albert and will start at the statues behind St. Albert Place.

As a liability requirement of our affiliation to the Alberta Bicycle Association, membership is required for attending our group rides, however you can always ‘test drive’ a ride once before making the commitment to join SABA.

For anyone interested in mountain biking, we encourage you to come to our May 29th Mountain Bike Clinic.  We’ll use this event to assess your skills and show you some of the features and terrain you’re likely to encounter on one of our off road group rides.  This is an all-skills, all-ages event and is intended to demonstrate and assess the necessary skills for riding your bike off-road.

Also, don’t forget that members of SABA can attend any of Cranky’s group rides by simply showing your SABA membership card and providing a little information for record-keeping.

Check out our events calendar for SABA rides and Cranky’s events page for their group ride schedule.

Helmets are mandatory, and don’t forget your water!

SABA group rides run rain or shine, but in the event of severe weather or other last minute changes, please watch our facebook or twitter page for last minute updates!

First Week Excitement!

The St. Albert Bike Association officially opened it’s doors at the end of May, and hosted it’s first group ride on Thursday May 30. Despite a distinct threat of rain in the air we had a fantastic first turnout! All told we had 22 riders come out and based on an impromptu poll, everyone had a great time!

We’re looking forward to growing our membership and getting more and more riders out to our events! Keep an eye on this page, and be sure to like our Facebook page to stay in the loop with all of our upcoming rides and events!
