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

MEC hosts a free group ride every Sunday morning. 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.

As of Sunday, October 29th the ride will be hitting the rail trail for the remainder of the season. Please ensure that you have an appropriate bike.

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.
