Yes the title was meant to be confusing. While cycle commuters are classy, SABA would like to see if there is interest in a class on how to safely commute from St. Albert into the downtown core. You might be surprised to know that there are better routes than St. Albert Trail; that you don’t need anything special to get a great workout, save gas (cash) and truly understand the utility of a bicycle as transportation.
If you’ve ever contemplated it we have a veteran commuter willing to share his knowledge and routes; all he needs is an audience.
If you have ever considered commuting to work and need a guided tour and some pointers please connect with Greg at firstname.lastname@example.org
Interested in a 30km ride East of St. Albert? Join us this Thursday, July 9th outside of Cranky’s at 6:30pm. This ride will be casual and social and paced at around 20km/hr. See the route below to know if you will be comfortable riding the route. Looking forward to enjoying the evening as it cools and the sun begins to set in the West as we head back.
RIDE BEGINS AT 7:00pm SHARP – PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY!
We are meeting at the old timers cabin parking lot, on the west side of scona road. Parking on the south side of the lot. Look for a black Mazda cx5 and a black and yellow bike.
SABA MTB group rides are rain or shine (pending extreme weather conditions). Riders are expected to be comfortable with riding singletrack and be skilled enough to handle the features and hazards that present on such a ride.
Helmets are mandatory for any SABA group ride. Group rides are for members only but you’re welcome to come for a “test drive” once before deciding to purchase a membership. More details can be found on our website (www.bikestalbert.ca).
For up-to-date information on group rides (last minute cancellations, meeting location changes, etc) be sure to keep an eye on our teamapp, twitter, and facebook pages!
Join us at #stalbert Rotary Park on Canada Day! SABA will be set up next to the Cranky’s bike parking tent and we’ll once again have an awesome mini skills park set up for the kids! Hope to see you there!!!
Thanks for your help picking this year’s SABA T-shirt artwork. “One Pedal at a Time” is the perfect choice because it’s how we cyclists propel ourselves through life.
So, now that we have something to wear, it is safe to take your bike down to St. Albert’s Canada Day celebration, park at the Cranky’s bike parking and visit our mini skills park. Don’t forget your lid.
Want to know more about the future of the bike skills park and how we are working towards building a safe and vibrant St. Albert cycling community? We’ll be the ones in the fancy new shirts.
Help us #stalbert! We can’t decide which shirt to print for our booth at next week’s Canada Day celebrations. Which do you like? Visit the poll to vote: http://www.easypolls.net/poll.html…

Please note this message from our friends at Cranky’s Bike Shop:
Early this morning somebody broke into the shop and stole 4 full suspension bikes. Total value of the bikes stolen was about $10,000. I’ve attached images and serial numbers of the stolen bikes. Could you please keep an eye out for the bikes. If you see anything you can either contact me or the St. Albert RCMP. Thanks.
