From May through October, many RMSSC members enjoy staying in shape with weekly group cycling in Edmonton and the surrounding areas. Cycling with our Club is also a great way to socialize and meet new friends! Most groups ride twice a week for 2-3 hours with a coffee stop.
Club volunteers also organize a few Special Rides each year - to places like Elk Island National Park and Red Deer, or special theme rides - as well as one or two multi-day Cycle Tours to other Alberta locations such as Canmore and Drumheller.
RMSSC cycling is for ALL levels of cycling ability and experience!
At the start of the season, members sign up with a group that suits their cycling ability and preferences: Green groups are for members who haven't cycled in awhile or who like to ride shorter distances at a relaxed pace, mostly on paved pathways. Light/Dark Blue groups enjoy riding at a moderate pace for 24+ km. Rides often include both paved and unpaved surfaces and some hills. Black/ Double-Black groups ride the fastest pace and furthest distance. They enjoy hills and often explore off-pavement trails and rough terrain on rides of 30 km or more.
What you need to ride
An RMSSC membership, a well-maintained bike appropriate for the terrain (most ride a hybrid or mountain bike), a helmet and a smile! We also welcome cyclists with pedal-assist ebikes.
All members new to RMSSC cycling are encouraged to complete our Getting Onboard program before the start of our regular cycling season in early May.
We are also always looking for volunteer group and ride leaders!
