Group Training Road Rides.

Group Training Road Rides. 

Starting Saturday April 26 and Sunday April 27 we are adding an additional ride time to the weekend schedule. (hoping by then the roads will clean up and the weather be nicer)
There will now be an 8:00am (Group B) ride Saturday and Sunday mornings for the duration of the summer, from the Sheraton parking lot. 

This 08:00am ride will be ideal for riders who are new to road riding, junior riders and for those that prefer a lower intensity and shorter distance than might normally occur with the 09:30 group ride.  The 09:30 ride will continue as normal

As with both ride times, there is a “no drop” policy, no one is left behind. Riding in a group is safer than by yourself,  flat tyre and mechanical issues can be fixed within the group. There will be experienced riders with the group to offer tips and advice for road and group riding. 

We enjoy coffee and snacks at “Joe’s Cafe’ in the sheraton hotel after the rides.  

Helmets are mandatory. 

Look forward to seeing you out for the ride.

Fernie Poker ride

High Rollers play when the stakes are high

HighRollerwebDSCN9087.jpg 
Cyclists braved the rainy elements during the High Roller Poker run mountain bike ride organized by the Fernie Mountain Bike Club (FMBC). Mud splattered riders rode Fernie trails to collect stickers at five stations throughout biking trails around Fernie today.
“It’s a fun ride every year,” said Angela Etheridge, organizer and FMBC president. “Some people will ride this event even if it’s snowing.”
Mud caked riders protected their hard earned stickers in Ziploc bags and made good use of GearHubs bike wash after completing the High Roller poker run bike ride. Two teeter-totters were fun features at the finish line beside the Royal. Riders will get their cards tonight during dinner at the Royal when they trade in their stickers for a poker hand.
