Are you looking to put in some kilometers on your bike during the week?

MEC hosts a free group ride every Monday night. Join our experienced cycling staff as they lead you and a group on a tour of the surrounding area. A great opportunity to get out, find some new riding partners and maybe pick-up some tips on technique and gear.

The ride will average between 20 and 50kms each week. Participants should be able to ride at a minimum of 20km/h for 1.5hrs.

It’s a no-drop ride, so no riders get left behind.
