Please arrive by 11:45 to prepare, as the wheels hit the road at 12:00pm

We will wait at intersections, but NO Sweep!

We will ride from West Side Kings Church to Lower Springbank road, turn right at Horizon View to access Escarpment View hill, down Springbank Road to sports ples x (bathrooms anyone?), north past Calaway Park to Springbank Airport Road, take a 6.5km detour to descend to the river, back up the hill, then up Banff Coach Road, down 101 back to Lower Springbank Road to close the loop. 

Please bring your PPE (facemasks) 

This is not a hammer fest. Goal is to ride at a steady pace. Lots of hills, both up and down, to challenge yourself. 

  • Point out and call out road obstacles
  • Signal, call out "stopping" and pull OFF the road if and when you stop, for any reason (don't have to pull off road at red lights)
  • Ride single file, except when passing
  • Call out when you pass, only on the left and at not within an arms length
  • If you want to pace-line, NO crossing wheels
  • If you take the lead, hold the pace, don't increase it or decrease it
  • If you are leading and your pace drops or you get tired, wave the group by on you left and take a break at back
  • If you can't hold a steady line, don't pace line
  • And smile, this is supposed to be FUN!
