From May to October, members of the Rocky Mountain Seniors Ski Club are offered the opportunity to keep their skiing muscles in shape through Tuesday and Thursday bike rides in Edmonton and the surrounding areas. It is also an excellent way to socialize with other Club members and meet new friends! Members simply show up on days they would like to participate.
We start the season with short easy rides and increase the length and difficulty as summer progresses. Depending on your biking experience, fitness level or your energy level that day, we offer green, blue and black routes each time. All routes include a stop somewhere for refreshments. How do the groups differ from one another, you ask?
Helmets are mandatory! A good, well maintained bike, adds to the enjoyment. Many bikers start with an old, but well maintained, bike. After they see how much fun the group can be, they often invest in a better bike. We begin our rides at 10:00 a.m. and finish between 12:00 p.m. and 12:30 p.m. Bikers are asked to be at the meeting place by 9:40 a.m. We will occasionally lunch together (picnic) and will conclude the season with a group lunch in October.
Biking 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. Members take turns leading the rides..
