Looking to improve your riding or just want a group to ride with? Come join us for our group rides it's a great way to learn new routes, improve you skill and fitness, and meet other riders.
Mountain bike rides go Monday at 6:30 and include a Social ride that is a no-drop, relaxed pace as well as an All-Mountain ride that is technically challenging but also at a relaxed pace. If numbers allow, which they usually do, we have a 3rd intermediate-pace ride. If you haven't ridden with us before, come on Monday first. We mention that because we aslo have 2 Wednesday rides for more advanced riders once you find the Monday ride too easy. The Wednesday Enduro ride is as technically challenging as the Monday All-Mountain ride but longer (3+ hours typically) and with fewer stops. The Wednesday Racer ride is one of the hardest mountain bike rides in the city. It is technical, fast and long and is geared to experienced riders with a lot of riding and racing under their belts. Basically, if you aren't sure which ride is for you, come on Monday to guage your fitness and level and then go from there.
Mountain Rides have a few different starting points depending on the night so check with the Shop, or better yet, join our club so you get the emails.
More of a roadie or want to try some road riding. Our Thursday Road Ride is a no-drop endurance ride of 2-3 hours at a moderate endurance pace. It's a great way to learn how to ride in a group. The road ride leaves from the Shop at 6:30.
More info on the Club Rides Here.
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 will be Wednesday August 28th and will be in place of the ride. Come help maintain the trails we love to ride. Afterwards we will retire to Garneau for food and refreshments compliments of your Hardcore Cycling Club
Work Starts at 6:30pm
Meet at the Old Timer's Parking lot a bit before 6:30
Bring shovels, gloves, hedge trimmers, pulaskis and any other trail tools you might have. Closed-toe shoes are a must.

Can't make it to Stonehenge this year? Why not come to our Solstice Ride instead.
Not only is Ibis bringing their demo bikes to the Shop on June 20th from 3 to 6pm but we will also be hosting our annual Solstice Ride. This ride will take advantage of the long evenings at that time of year so we can hit up the best trails in the river valley...all of them. Plan for 4.5 hours of riding. After-ride activities will include suitably pagan beverages and snacks at our favourite post-ride restaraunt.
