We will maintain a moderate pace, in this friendly no drop ride. We will wait at tops of hills and at major turns for the group to reassemble. Be prepared for some climbing especially at the start. A couple sections have more traffic along Springbank Road where the shoulder is slightly narrower for example. Front and back lights are highly recommended for all road rides. There are some wonderful views on this route and the ride provides a great way to improve strength. We return back to Edworthy. Please point out all road debris, potholes, gravel and signal stops and turns to other riders. No pace line or overlapping wheels please. We stop for all stop signs and red lights.

    RIDE THE MATTAMY ROUTE – CIRCUMNAVIGATE CALGARY

    This is a two-day event for which you can do one or both days, Tuesday August 20 and Wednesday, August 21.  Each day nears 100 km and most of it is on the newly build or renamed pathway system.  If you plan to do only one of the days, please register and then send a note to one of the coordinators.  The route is flexible as pathway construction and roadway construction may necessitate changes, however, we will follow the signed Rotary/Mattamy Circle Route most of the way.  

    Each day is a circular route and when complete we will have ridden a figure 8 on some of the best rides in the city.  Day One starts in Shouldice Park and Day Two starts in Fish Creek Park (at the bottom of Bow Bottom Trail).  For a look at the Mattamy route check out http://www.parksfdn.com/greenway/   On Day one the route back will leave the greenway south of 16thAve. N. and follow bike routes back to the Zoo and then along the Bow to Shouldice Park.  On Day Two we will leave Fish Creek and head west and then north parallel to the ring road construction, through Glenmore Park, up Signal Hill and north to Edworthy Park and Shouldice area before heading east along the Bow and then hooking into the canal pathway all the way back to the eastern edge of the city and then back on the Greenway and south past the South Calgary Hospital and down the ridge through Cranston and along the Bow to our starting point. 

    Just like the Greenway, our planning is a work in progress. We have ridden the route and will re-ride portions before the group ride and so, we invite you to accept the challenge of this ultimate Urban Ride.  We may divide into groups as needed and will have corner guiding in addition to the many directional sign posts along the way.

    Road Ride:  Easy Rider

    Coordinator:  Celia Norman

    Distance:  60 km

    Pace:  16 - 19 kph

    Elevation Gain:  350 meters

    You may be wondering what is an "Easy Rider". I define this as a person who wants a ride of intermediate distance (55 to 75 kms) at a leisurely pace (16 to 19 km/hr).

    This ride starts at  Bow Valley Provincial Park in the parking lot for the information centre. We will ride to Canmore on highway 1A,  have either a picnic lunch or a sandwich from the Rocky Mountain Flatbread company, then we will return the same way.  I will offer the option of a short tour of the riverside in Canmore, adding up to 5 kms. Another option is to ride the paved trails in Bow Valley Park.

    As we ride we will have beautiful mountain vistas. We will stop at several viewpoints to appreciate it more and take photos. 

    The group will be small and I hope we will stay together.

    Day One – Tuesday,August 27th: We will leave Calgary at 1:00 pm and have dinner in Jasper,  staying at the new Jasper Hostel opening this spring.  It looks much nicer than the old one, and is right in Jasper. Check it out here:

    Day Five – Saturday, August 31st: Today we cycle 85km stopping in Lake Louise and on to Banff along the 1A drive back to Calgary.

    Due to lack of budget transportation as we have used in the past, we will be using two or three vehicles with divers taking turns leap-frogging ahead.


     This trip will require one or two registrants who can bring personal vehicles with the ability to carry multiple bicycles, and are comfortable letting others drive their vehicle. (Those registrants will receive a discounted rate as well as reimbursed for fuel costs) We will have a rental cargo van to carry luggage and coolers, as well as some bikes. We have done this in the past with no problems.


    Due to up front costs which remain the same regardless of number of participants, The event will only proceed with the full 8 members.

     Cost includes 4 nights accommodation at the hostels, and transportation (for those not bringing vehicles). Also included is a the opportunity for a shower after the second day of cycling. We will have a room at Saskatchewan Crossing that we can use to all rotate through the shower!

We do a lot of riding around estate cul-de-sacs so vehicle traffic is minimal. There are a few hills but this ride is doable by almost everybody because the cul-de-sacs allow slower riders to catch up and allows faster riders to get in some extra distance. Sweeps and corner guiding will be used.

    Due to this being the start of our cool fall the ride will start at 10:30. Be at the start at 10:15. Bring  a sandwich for a mid ride snack.

    Location:  Walmart Parking Lot in Royal Oaks Centre (Northwest corner of Country Hills Blvd. and 112 Ave NW).

    Big Northern Loop

    distance about 45 - 50  Intermediate 

    Earlier this season we did half this loop.  Today we're going to do the full loop.  Starting at Shouldice Park we will ride east to the Nose Creek Pathway.  We cycle north then west going through the neighbourhoods of Dalhousie, Ranchlands, Crowfoot, Silver Springs and as far west as Bowness park.   We will be cycling on roads and pathways.   

    Directions to starting point.  At the corner of Home Rd and 16th Ave NW, go south (towards the river).  Just past the batting cage is 13 Ave NW.  Turn right and we'll meet in the first big parking lot on the left.  Please arrive at the starting point 15 minutes prior to starting time.

    The season is coming to an end so let's get together for lunch.  Friday is the roast beef buffet lunch which seems to be the favorite.   This event is subsidized by the club so there is a high fee for non-members and guests.  The cost includes lunch, GST, Gratuities, and coffee, tea or pop.  Alcohol is at the members own expense.  

    Cost - Members  $15.00 per person ;  Non members/ guests $19.00 per person. Please bring the exact amount.  It makes my work easier.  

    Looking forward to seeing you.  Any questions, please contact me at

    THE SOUTHERN LOOP—Sue Chenier

    Park at the NE corner in Glenmore Landing.  We’ll ride North along the east side of the reservoir, crossing over to join the Elbow R. pathway.  Then we’ll continue up past the Repsol Centre and into Inglewood where we’ll stop for coffee, snacks, lunch.  There are lots of coffee/eating establishments in the area, but I usually stop at Gravity Espresso and Wine Bar.  They also have food there.

    We’ll then continue east along the Bow R. heading south through Carburn Park, jumping over to the west side at the Sue Higgin’s bridge, through the well-fenced dog park, past Annie’s (if it’s still open, we can opt for a coffee break), then continue through Fish Creek Park via Shannon Terrace, north using any detours at that time, and rejoining the Glenmore Reservoir pathway, heading east and back to our vehicles.

    Approx. distance: 60km

    MALLARD POINT, LAFARGE, FISH CREEK--SUE CHENIER

    Park at Mallard Point at east end of Canyon Meadows Dr. SE.

    We’ll head south through Fish Creek along the Bow R. to LaFarge then west, around Chaparral Valley, past Annie’s, up the ridge on the south end of Parkland, then a slight jog through Canyon Meadows, west through Fish Creek to Bebo Grove. 

    There's only 1 big hill going up to Parkland where we'll stop and catch our breath.  Most will have to walk the last 25m. 

    We’ll return staying in the park all the way but stopping off at Annie's if it's open, then back to Mallard Point.  99% of this ride will be on pathways.

    Approx. distance: 40km
