Bike Skills Park Update

The proposed bike skills park once again went in front of Council yesterday (Sept 23rd).

Council was presented a report describing three different site proposals. Each site was scored based on a common set of criteria, and the top two sites were presented to Council as recommendations to host the skills park.

Each location has it’s own unique set of benefits, and we’re excited to announce that Council gave approval to go ahead with the next step of the project – public consultation – for both recommended sites!

Stay tuned here and on our facebook pages for details as we progress towards the next steps in this fantastic project!

Thank You, St. Albert!

Our last official group ride for the season was Sept 15, and I just wanted to thank everyone that came out for one (or more) of our rides! I couldn’t be happier with the support I received throughout the season and I’m looking forward to seeing you all in 2014.

Things will definitely not be quiet for us through the winter months, even though most of us will have hung our bikes up for the year. Keep an eye on this site and our facebook page for updates on the proposed Bike Skills Park, 2014 membership info, workshops, and events we’re planning on hosting or attending!

In the meantime, stay warm and enjoy these few remaining days before the snow flies!
