WHO WE ARE
We are a group of biking fanatics that love to ride, and we think we should give something back to our sport. We have developed a respected mountain bike and cyclocross racing program that has enjoyed success at the provincial and national level, while at the same time maintaining a variety of recreational riding opportunities such as good ol’ singletrack trail rides.
- We are an affiliated cycling club with the Alberta Bicycle Association (ABA) and Canadian Cycling Association (CCA).
- Our members range in age from early teens to early fifties, and abilities from novice to competitive elite racers.
WHAT WE OFFER
- Year round rides for mountain bike, road bike, and cyclocross. Info on the rides: Click Here

BECOME A MEMBER

2014 Kit ~ 25th Anniversary Edition.
* Fine Print: We say "most" accessories, bikes and parts because there are a few items that have very little profit margin where we can't offer that discount, eg: GoPro cameras, all suspension forks. On these items the discount will be no GST. As they say, "details in store."
