    It wil cover the following skills and individual feedback will be provided on: 

    - Body position when both climbing and descending - upright versus low active stance

    - Pedal stroke when climbing - different cadences and how they feel

    - Use of brakes when descending

    Road Ride: Intermediate

    Coordinator: Lyle Opseth

    Distance: 62 km

    Elevation: 570 m

    Pace: 22-25 km/h 

    Enjoy the foothills west of Calgary. This is mixed farming and ranching country as the higher elevations and shorter summer forces a switch from grain farming to the east to ranching in the foothills along the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains. There are impressive valley views west of highway 22, particularly near Jumping Pound gas plant and great views of the mountains to the west. We will have a snack stop at the picnic tables at the turn around point.

    This is an intermediate level ride from Springbank to the Jumping Pound gas plant. This ride is a bit longer with a bit more elevation, than previous versions of this ride this year (which were meant as intro to road riding rides). We will do this in the reverse direction to the usual ride at an intermediate pace. There are four climbs of significance. You want the view, you need the climb!

    We will start a bit earlier (9 am) to avoid the worst of the summer vacation traffic on the short stretch of highway 22. Otherwise, traffic is quiet along most of the route.

    There are a few things of which to be aware. We exit 22 with a left turn. There are two places with gravel, the longest being five km of gravel on Springbank Road west of highway 22; the other is short (100m) on Hackamore Trail. Finally, at the bottom of the hill before the gas plant there is a narrow bridge with a wood base so watch for traffic and damaged planks.

    Bring sufficient  food and water since there is no opportunity to purchase these on the ride. The snack stop is at the gas plant. There is also a tailgate party at the end.

    Park at the west end of Springbank for all Seasons parking lot, next to range road 33. (Springbank for all Seasons is also Springbank High School.)

    Coordinator: Colleen Gagnon

    Distance: 74km  

    Elevation:  600m

    Pace:  18-20kpm - relaxed touring pace.  I will sweep.   I'd like a faster rider to volunteer to navigate off the front.  I'm estimating 5 and a half hours total for this ride.

    Meet at the Station Flats Parking lot at 5:30. Trails to be determined but I am thinking about Sulphur Springs, Pnumo, 727.  This is a moderate pace ride and we re-group at each trail intersection. 

    If https://braggcreektrails.org/all-season-trail-conditions-report/ shows the trails as wet, we may change the event location.

    Bear spray and clear lenses would be good things to bring as well as the usual tools, tube, pump, first aid kit.

    Try to park near the picnic tables before and across from bathroom for tailgating convenience. I will be in a grey Honda Accord, riding a big orange Ibis.

    Bring lots of water. Chair and bevvies for Apres are optional.

    Elevation Gain: 851 m

    Ride format: No sweep, limited stops

    Parking and Meeting Place: We start at the library/community centre in Turner Valley

    Route description:

    A hilly and scenic ride in the beautiful Sheep River Valley. We ride up the Sheep River Road (Hwy 546) to the end where we loop through the day use area and parking at the end of the road and return. On the way back, we stop at the Sheep River Falls viewpoint (see map; approximately 41.5 km) for a lunch break.

    As this is an out-and-back ride with an obvious route, there will be no sweep.  Be prepared to be self-sufficient, with enough food and water, and equipped and able to change your own flat tire if needed. This is bear country and consider carrying bear spray.

    The main road (Sunset Blvd/546) through Turner Valley is closed for construction this summer. We will detour via Edgar Ave and Windsor Ave to exit and return through Turner Valley. This is not shown on the map.

    Social elements:

    • Longer stop to snack and soak up the atmosphere at Sheep Falls on the return.
    • Tailgate party at Turner Valley following our ride.

    Safety:

    • Ensure your emergency contact info is up to date. 
    • Some parts of the route do not have cell service.
    • Bring your own tools, spare tubes, etc.
    • Consider bringing bear spray.
    • We need to cross cattle guards several times.

    This meeting is for current mountain bike coordinators or folks who are planning to become mtn bike coordinators in the near future.  Please note that if you are already a road coordinator and you are also a mountain biker, you automatically qualify as a mtb bike coordinator as long as you know some routes.

    Road Ride:    Pace: 18-22, easy

    Distance:  33 km

    Elevation:  294 m

    The intermediate and advanced riders in the club love Springbank Heights for the hill workouts and because the route has interesting and scenic views of the mountains, Bow River valley and acreages. Join me for an easier version of the area where we will experience some of the highlights without the distance or pace and without all the elevation. There is still almost 300 metres of climbing however.

    I have kept this ride to about 30 km and avoided some difficult climbs so we won't get to view the Bow River valley from Emerald Bay, for example, though it is worth a visit. Other places to visit include Idylwyld acreages and Glenbow Lake (Harmony) and they are definitely worth the visit for the more adventurous or perhaps on a future easy ride.

    We will start and finish at Springbank for all Seasons (also known as Springbank High School). Park at the west side of the parking lot, next to Range Road 33. Don't forget about the tailgate party afterwards.

             Symons Valley Ranch to Madden loop counterclockwise

             Coordinator: Lyle Opseth

    Distance: 84 Km

    Pace: 22-25 kph

    Difficulty: Intermediate

    Elevation Gain: 742 m

    Route description:

    Where the prairies and foothills meet, we will enjoy the grain fields (barley, wheat, canola, etc.) and the rolling hills of the eastern edge of the foothills. The canola will have long finished flowering and the other grains will not yet be turning golden. We will get views of the mountains to the west. We will cycle past a saskatoon berry farm on 766--yumm! There are many u-pick farms in this region.

    A variation of the Symons Valley/Madden loop, we will go counterclockwise. We start on 766 but we will avoid the big climb up on 766 and use Mountain View Road and 566 instead. Mountain View Rd is the first right on 766, then left on 566 and right back onto 766 at the top of the hill. This route is less steep and avoids the busy part of 766. 766 rapidly becomes much quieter past this point. Regroup at Goldenrod Community Centre (hwy 766 and hwy 567). Continue onto Madden for a lunch stop.

    We then continue briefly north of Madden to Township Rd 290 and turn left, continuing west onto 766. 766 goes west then south as Lochend Rd for about 28 km when we turn left (east) onto Township 262, right (south) on Bearspaw Rd, left (east) on Burma Rd (144 Ave), returning to the start. Be familiar with the route or load the map onto your GPS if you plan to ride ahead.

    Time:

    • Arrive at least 15 minutes early
    • Wheels rolling at 10:00 a.m.  
    • Out of respect for those who arrive on time, we won't wait for latecomers.

    Social elements:

    • Longer stop to snack at Madden. Food and water are available at the golf course.
    • Tailgate party following the ride.

    MTB Multi Day: All Levels

    Coordinator:  Mike Sekella

    Distance:  As little or as much as you want in a day.

    Pace:  Any

    Elevation Gain:   +/- 300m to the top of the Plateau. Repeat as desired.


    Hopefully by the date of the event we can allow more people to join. For now we are still limited to 10 people.

     As registration is limited, please be planning on mountain biking with us if you sign up -


    This posting is mainly for information only - You are responsible for your own camp site / accommodations, food, etc. There is a small store there with basic supplies. (yes, and ice)

     Come for any or all the days, or whatever. I generally go a couple times a year to ride the trails in the Cypress Hills. (At Elkwater - Alberta Side)


     There are lots of campgrounds there. I believe there is only one hotel, though there are some B&B's also. Lots of other activities to do before or after  mountain biking too. If it is hot, a swim in the lake is great. If you have a boat, you can do that too. There are activities put on through the Visitor Center also. Hiking is an option too, though it is on all the same trails you can ride your mtb on.


    There are lots of trails there and often, for the last few years, there has been some new trail building going on. Last I saw, at least most of the trails are on Trailforks.


    https://www.trailforks.com/region/elkwater/?activitytype=1&z=11.7&lat=49.65240&lon=-110.28855


    Some people have inquired about campgrounds - I am in Firerock. (but not the farthest loops - C, D, and E)

    Those loops are up a pretty good sized hill. As well, the Ferguson Hill and Lodgepole campgrounds are halfway up to the top of the Plateau. Means you have to ride up to your site after as most rides end up at the bottom.


     If you are camping, you can check your campground here:

             ROAD RIDE - INTERMEDIATE+/ADVANCED (DISTANCE AND CLIMBING)

             Coordinator: Lyle Opseth

    Distance: 88 Km

    Pace: 22-25 kph

    Elevation Gain: 990 m

    Ride format: No sweep, limited stops

    NOTE: Banff NP is scheduling the Bow Summit day use area (Peyto Lake viewpoint) to open July 31. The day use area has been closed since the fall of 2019 for reconstruction. Should the reopening be delayed, this ride may be rescheduled or cancelled. However, I'm posting it now so you can plan.

    Alternate parking from that described below is at the Lake Louise ski resort. Last year's experience is that the public parking described in the townsite doesn't fill quickly.

    Route description:

    Enjoy the newly renovated day use area at Bow Summit with great views of Peyto Lake.

    With the Peyto Lake Viewpoint opening July 31st, we will make a journey along highway 93 to Bow Summit and then to the Peyto Lake Viewpoint. We will also see what improvements have been made at the viewpoint. We can also stop at Bow Lake and other spots with great vistas to enjoy the views.

    Leaving and returning Lake Louise, we will use Village Road to the western end and following the bike path that goes over highway 1 and runs beside highway 1 and highway 93 to the park pass checkstop. This route avoids riding on highway 1 or going over the overpass and it's cattle guards on the way out.

    We will then follow highway 93 to/from Bow Summit and make the final steep climb up to the Peyto Lake Viewpoint.

    This is an intermediate+/advanced ride due to a combination of distance and climbing.

    Parking and meeting spot:

    There is a lesser known public parking lot behind the Husky gas bar and the nearby restaurant, across Village Road from the information centre. Do not use the Sampson Mall parking lot due to parking time limits. We will meet at the information centre to begin the ride.

    Wheels roll at 8:30 am. The early start helps ensure we have plenty of parking.

    • Safety:
    • Please ensure your contact info is up to date in the system before the ride -- including your cell phone number and emergency contact. 
    • Most of the route does not have cell service.
    • Be self-sufficient: bring your own tools, spare tubes, etc
    • This is bear country: consider bringing bear spray

    Join us for a loop tour of southeast Vancouver Island including the Gulf Islands.  September is traditionally dry time of year in these parts and dissipating holiday traffic will leave the winding, scenic roads to cyclists.

    This is an ebike friendly event with shared hotels (2/room), luggage shuttle, ferries, and water taxis included in the registration fee.  Daily distances vary between 40-70 km per day with an option to pedal further if desired.  The roads include some short, steep hills so low gears will be appreciated by most.  

    We depart Victoria Airport (Sidney) on Vancouver Island, taking the Mill Bay ferry the first day and end the ride at “Cow Bay”. On a hill behind our motel overlooking the wharf of the picturesque seaside village of Cowichan Bay, sits a grove of tall, willowy alder trees. Atop of those trees are 93 large nests that seem to defy gravity. The nests are home to endangered great blue herons making this rookery the most successful one on Vancouver Island.

    The village is also home to the Cowichan Bay Maritime Centre, which is a museum on a wharf (and very educational).  It’s next door to the Rock Cod Café, a must visit for seafood aficionados.

    After day trip to loop Shawnigan Lake and cross the Kinsol Trestle, we depart Cowichan Bay and head for Duncan, exploring the Mt Tzouhalem area including the remains of the Butter Church, the village of Maple Bay and perhaps the Northwest Raptor Centre en route.       


    While in Duncan, the planned outing is a day trip up to Cowichan Lake to visit the western terminus of the Trans Canada Trail and back.  Several restored trestles are accessible along the Trans Canada Trail from the lake, though riding the TCT for any distance requires sturdy tires due to the large gravel used to construct the trail.

    Leaving Duncan, we visit the town of Chemainus, the town of murals on our way to Crofton and the ferry to Saltspring Island.  We cycle across the island to the town of Ganges where we stay for the next 5 nights.  April-October, Ganges hosts the Saturday Market—a farmers market and craft fair.  

    We’ll use Ganges as home base for a series of island hops via water taxi to explore, Galiano, North and South Pender, Saltspring and Mayne Islands.  

    On the last day of the tour, we depart Ganges and ride to Fulford Harbour for the last ferry ride back to Swartz Bay followed by a ride around the north end of Saanich Peninsula, arriving back at the airport by 3 PM.

    All participants will need to show evidence of their second vaccination 2 weeks before Sept 10.  While area restaurants and accommodations have had to close during the pandemic due to staff shortages etc, I’m told that many are now open and eager to get back to business. 

    All of EVCC’s Covid 19 procedures will be in effect and may include wearing masks while on the water taxi and on ferries (subject to B.C. regulations).

    The tour departs mid-day from Victoria Airport (Sidney) on Friday Sept 10 and arrives back in time to prep bikes for a late afternoon flight back to Calgary Sunday September 19. Participants are responsible for their own travel to and from Victoria.

    A gear shuttle van will carry baggage between airport and from one accommodation to the next. A bike shuttle from Calgary to Victoria (return) is available for those who would like to fly. Lockers are available at Victoria Airport to stow bicycle airline shipping cases.

    A solo accommodation rate is available for those singles desiring their own rooms. 

    If you’d like more details, please phone or email Don Hollingshead 403-289-7061. donhol at nucleus dot com.

             ROAD RIDE: Advanced distance, hills and pace

             Coordinator: Heather Opseth

    Distance: 94 Km

    Pace: 25-28 kph

    Elevation Gain: 1,200 m

    Description:

    You've done Highwood Pass in spring and summer... have you ever done it in the fall? In the third week of September, we hope to see the golden hues of the larches in full "bloom" with their fall colours. 

    This is a variant of "Highwood Pass from the South". In any season, this is a classic mountain ride with spectacular scenery. Fun facts: This is the highest paved pass in Canada, reaching a height of 2,206 m. Our parking spot is at a bend on the Highwood River, which originates from the pass. 

    Parking and meeting spot: Highwood River Provincial Recreation Day Use Area, located on Highway 541, SW of Longview. 

    Wheels rolling @ 10 a.m. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early so we can start on time. 

    Social elements:

    • Longer snack stop and photo op at the top, weather permitting!
    • Apres-ride social in the day use area following our ride. BYO lawn chairs and refreshments - there are no cafes in sight!

    Safety:

    • At this time of year, we can expect variable mountain weather. It can be very chilly descending from the pass. Please come prepared with appropriate warm clothing - mitts, jackets, hats, and booties may be needed!
    • Bears may be active in this area preparing for their hibernation. Please bring bear spray.
    • Part (most?) of the route is out of cellular service. As a group we will collectively ensure no one is left to ride alone.
