Trail Maintenance Wed July 8

Trail Maintenance Wed July 8

Given the huge amount of time we spend riding the trails in the river valley, a few years ago the club thought it a good idea to put something back in the form of some trail days. In cooperation with the City of Edmonton and the Edmonton Mountain Bike Alliance, Hardcore Cycling Club adopted the trails in the area below Saskatchewan Drive from the Walterdale Bridge to the Old Timer’s Cabin. Our second Trail Day of 2015 will be Wednesday July 8th and will be in place of the ride. Come help maintain the trails we love to ride. After we will retire well-deserved for adult beverages and snacks. Work Starts at 6:30pm Meet at Queen Elizabeth Park parking lot a bit before 6:30 Bring if you got ’em: hedge trimmers, shovels, Pulaskis, rakes, work gloves, bug spray, hydration and wear enclosed-toe shoes….Or if you don’t have any of that just bring...

Solstice Ride 2015 – June 22

Solstice Ride 2015 – June 22

Next Monday will be our 4th Annual Solstice Ride where we take advantage of the long days and do an extra-long ride. YOU MUST BE A CLUB MEMBER TO COME OUT ON THIS RIDE. Also, it is STRONGLY recommended you have come out to the rides on a regular basis to prepare. Please do not use this ride as your first; the regular Monday rides are the place for that. They commence the week after this. In past we have gone east, so this year we are switching things up and riding west. Depending on numbers there will likely be at least 4 groups with the more advanced groups doing 4+ hours, group 2 3.5 to 4 hours, group 3 3 to 3.5 and group 4 2.5 to 3 hours. All rides are longer than our usual Monday rides, including the shortest, but that’s the point of an epic. If you find the ride too long an you have to bail out–just let someone know please so we don’t spend hours looking for you. Be honest with yourself when choosing your group. Its a great opportunity to push yourself, but ensure its within your limits. 2 hours from home is a bad time to find out you are in a group that is too hard for you. Please note that these rides are self supported. That means it is up to you to bring enough water, food and spares to make sure you can complete the ride. I’d recommend at least 3L of water, (in a pack) and perhaps a water bottle with some electrolyte. Bring whatever food gets...
