Founding member of the EVCC (1983). 

 Philosophy:  I’ve never encountered a hill I couldn’t walk.

 Favourite Quote:  “There is more to life than simply increasing its speed. ”  -Mahatma Gandhi

 Cycling Objectives:

  • To make the world a better place to bicycle.
  • To help others discover and enjoy cycling as much as I have.

Secretary
Helen Hayes
Helen started cycling with the EVCC 20 years ago. At the open house of a completed design project she was asked what her next project would be. "I want to buy a bicycle" was her reply and Linda Graham, past board member of the EVCC, overheard the comment, passed her a card and introduced her to the club. Since then, she has cycled every multi-day EVCC ride from Jasper to San Diego and has cycled 5 routes through various parts of Mexico. She is a co-ordinator of day rides as well as the annual Foothills Frolic and the Drumheller Loop multi-day rides. In 2015, Helen took a group to cycle the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, and in 2016 she organized a bike tour through Cuba. Helen presently sits on the Board of Directors as Secretary for the club. She quotes her namesake, Helen Hayes, 1st lady of the American Theater who said: “The only regret I have in my life is never learning how to ride a bicycle.”

Program Director
Peter Thurston
Despite a cold and snowy January I am getting excited about the ride prospects for 2017. To kick things off I am assuming Peter Bradbury's duties as ride coordinator. Taking over where Peter left off, we will again rely on the great work done in 2016 by the Ride Convenors and Ride Coordinators to put together our 2017 ride roster. I look forward to meeting with everyone soon; reconnecting with old friends; as well as making new friends and getting to know you all a bit better.

Doug McCulloch
Doug bought his first 10 speed in 1968 while at the University of Saskatchewan and he still loves cycling more than ever. Together with Sarah he completed a round-the-world cycle tour in 2003, and they led an EVCC tour to Yorkshire in northern England in 2012.

As President of the Club, Doug is committed to maintaining the recreation nature of the club and to work hard on behalf of cyclists. But most of all, he wants us to keep the joy of a great ride as the primary reason why we belong to the Elbow Valley Cycling Club. One of his goals for 2014 is to build the number of rides offered to members.

Doug’s favorite rides are when the wheels are turning and he’s dressed properly for the day’s weather. City favorites are riding the Bow from Bowness to the Zoo, and country favorites are Horse Creek Road and the Road to Nepal. Nowadays, Doug paces his rides; not too fast but not slow either, he loves to fly down a hill, and while he may be the last to the top of a hill, he’s ready to pedal onward.

His all time favorite ride was yesterday’s...well maybe, but let’s see what today’s ride brings!

Ride coordinator
Barbara Roberts
I joined EVCC in 2013 after I stopped working for the first time. (Yes I failed my first attempt at retirement). Joining EVCC was one of the best retirement decisions I made. It allowed me to share my love of cycling with other people. I like all types of riding. The Urban Rides allow me to explore parts of Calgary I don't usually see. The Rural rides get me out of city. Any day cycling with friends is a good day. See you on the paths and trails.

Ride Coordinator
Gary Davidge
Since Gary joined the Elbow Valley Cycling Club in June 2008, he has enjoyed over 125 organized rides. As a retired accountant and businessman, in November 2012, he took over the role of Treasurer for the EVCC. Gary has always been an active participant in various athletic endeavors over his life. In the last few years, cycling has been his main activity, but he still gets in a few rounds of golf, some downhill ski days and some hiking. He says that his best memory of riding with the club was cycling Cochrane to Morley on the 1A and back on the Trans Canada which included climbing Scott Lake Hill. Completing this ride gave him the confidence to try most of the club rides. He has some financial advice - "spend less that you earn" and a travel tip - "you can't see it all, so don't try. Instead, on each travel day, learn something new".

He and his wife Marilyn have four children and five grand children.

Jenny Earle
I feel like I've always loved being on a bike ever since I was a little kid on my purple speedster. My purpose for riding has morphed from recreation as a kid to a practical commuting vehicle in school and now is currently a mix of both. I started out mountain biking and then got into road riding followed by cycle touring. This must be the slippery slope they talk about in terms of how many bikes are in the garage (currently 4 for me). Gord and I love to see the world from the seat of a bike and we just returned from a 3.5 week cycle tour of Switzerland and Italy (June 2016). We like to challenge ourselves on occasion and have participated in five gran fondo events in three countries, the latest a 134 km - 2800 m elevation gain ride in the Dolomites of northern Italy. We're not fast but we're determined! As a co-ordinator, I love to have social rides that also challenge and are at a pace that allows all levels to enjoy the day. We also love to hear stories of others' adventures because we are always planning that next trip! Just keep spinning.

Trip Coordinator
Lynn Bowers
I'm a multi-sport person (road biking plus hiking, XC skiing, snowshoeing) with an interest in sharing local scenery, particularly new or unusual routes. Since I'm also interested in the local food scene, my events tend to feature opportunities to replenish calories at recommended restaurants and coffee shops. I'm a retiree (former elementary school teacher) enjoying retirement and the opportunity to volunteer my services.

Coordinator
Maria Saley
Maria joined the Elbow Valley Cycle Club for a couple of years back in 1996, and then re-joined in 2014. She leads Intermediate road rides and Beginner and Intermediate MTB rides. When not riding or working, she also enjoys hiking and x- country skiing as well as playing mandolin and piano.

See Upcoming Events or Past Events being coordinated by Maria Saley.




 
Coordinator
Martine Parent
Martine has always been very active in the outdoors and enjoys many sports in particular, road and mountain biking, and downhill and cross-country skiing. She started road riding in 2011, and became an event coordinator shortly after joining the Club.

Martine likes to coordinate rides at a fairly fast pace (20+ kms/hour). There is no sweeping on her rides, but she regroups at important intersections, so no one gets lost or left behind. She will ride in almost any kind of weather, except in very high winds or pouring rain, unless it starts in the middle of the ride and there is nowhere to seek shelter.

Some of her favorite rides close to the city are in the Springbank area, to Cochrane and back, Highway 66 from Bragg Creek, and Horse Creek Road. She loves riding in the mountains around Banff and Lake Louise, and enjoys making the occasional trip to Drumheller or other nearby towns. She also likes to organize multi-day trips to farther locations.

Director at Large
Peter Bradbury
One of my favorite cycling activities is exploring new routes for the Club with a couple of buddies, mapping them and passing them along. I might have got my start as a 12 year old when I lived in a suburb of Buenos Aires, touring far and wide on my Remington bicycle, discovering and memorizing landmarks and streets.

In 2014 and 2015 I convened the Saturday Adventure Rides, an experiment, setting them up and contacting members to coordinate them. Other members volunteered to convene other rides. We were rewarded in 2015 with records set for numbers of events and levels of participation.

In 2016 the Club is broadening the initiative. Several members have volunteered to join Ride Planning Teams to schedule rides and encourage coordination. We ought to have a great season.

Ride Coordinator
Richard Ward
Richard began riding in the Kootenays on the Rossland Trail hill, including camping tours to Riondel and Christina Lake.

For many years he commuted to work by bicycle along Kingsway in Vancouver. When he joined the Vancouver Bicycle Club, he noticed several potential members didn't return. He started a Saturday morning conversational ride which is now the club’s most popular ride.

Richard came to Calgary to help with family matters. He joined the Elbow Valley Cycle Club which was known as the most inclusive club in Calgary. He began with the Easy Riders, hoping not to get dropped, and learned a lot of routes from veteran city riders.

Richard enjoys medium speed pace line riding. He also rides on snow but, now that he’s retired, he avoids the coldest temperatures. His main interest in cycling is for transportation, but club riding is a good way to improve health and skills. Generally, he cycles to a ride's starting point.
