From May through October, RMSSC members can keep their skiing muscles in shape with group bike rides in Edmonton and the surrounding areas. Cycling with our Club is also an excellent way to socialize and meet new friends!
Weekly Cycling Program
RMSSC cycling is for all levels of cycling ability and experience! We offer green, blue and black groups & routes. All routes include a stop somewhere for coffee or other refreshments. Here's how the groups differ from one another:
Members register online early in the season with a group of up to 15 riders, including a group leader. Each group chooses its own start locations, meet times, routes and ride leaders. Members often form strong bonds within their group, and have the opportunity to mix with other Club cyclists by coordinating start locations and taking part in Special Rides and Cycle Tours. Regarding COVID-19, the Club will continue to monitor AHS recommendations and tailor cycling to best serve RMSSC members.
Club volunteers organize a few day trips each year to places like Elk Island National Park, Red Deer and Fort Saskatchewan. These rides include a social gathering. Events are announced in our Ski Tracks newsletter and RMSSC This Week e-bulletins.
Multi-day trips to destinations such as Canmore & Calgary are typically offered a couple of times a year.
What you need to ride
A membership with RMSSC and a well-maintained bike appropriate to the terrain. Most cyclists prefer a hybrid or mountain-style bike as routes include a number of trails in the North Saskatchewan River valley and the Sturgeon River valley. We also ride in other areas of Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert. Helmets are mandatory!
