Tour of Alberta Family Ride – Join our Team!

Join us in downtown Edmonton on Monday, September 2, 2013 to celebrate the Tour of Alberta and help raise funds for CASA Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health! Whether you are looking for a family outing or a team building experience or just an opportunity to get outside and have some fun, this event is for you.

Enjoy a leisurely morning of cycle fun geared up for the entire Family. The ride will begin with a mass start at Churchill Square in downtown Edmonton at 11 AM, and will loop back to finish at the starting point – the same finish line our Tour of Alberta teams will ride across the following day!

The St. Albert Bike Association is banding together for this scenic ride through downtown Edmonton in support of CASA Child Adolescent and Family Mental Health. You can help us make a difference through our ride by donating to our campaign or by joining our team! The route is a relaxed circuit from Churchill Square to River Valley Road, great for all levels of cyclists to participate. Together, we can change the face of children’s mental health. Come along for the ride!

Behind the scenes…

Hey everyone! Hope you’re enjoying what’s left of our summer! We’ve had a lot of great riding days, but it sure seems like we’ve had a lot more rain-outs! Here’s a little update with all the latest happenings with SABA.


Online Membership Signup

We’ve created an online signup form so you can quickly and easily join SABA! We’re not able to accept payments online yet, but our goal is to have that piece up and running for the 2014 membership season. If you’d like to join us, hit the link and sign up! Once we get notification we’ll contact you to arrange payment.


It’s Official!

Shortly after we ‘opened shop’ we submitted our application to the province to become a non-profit association. Well I’m excited to announce that we FINALLY received our approval package in the mail! St. Albert Bike Association is officially registered with the province as a not-for-profit organization!

Bike Skills Park

SABA is working diligently with the City of St. Albert to identify and score some new locations for the proposed Bike Skills Park. Three new locations have been found as suitable options and we’ve worked with the City to choose the top two recommendations. Once we have more details to release, they’ll be posted both here on the website, as well as our Facebook pages too. Stay tuned!

Group Rides

We’ve had some awesome group rides and turnout has been fairly steady each week at between 5 to 9 riders each time. This is a fantastic start for our little club, and we’re hoping to see this grow as the weeks go on! If you’ve joined us for a group ride and you’ve enjoyed it, you should consider joining the club and showing your support!
