A Group for Every Skill Level

Our 2015 Cyclocross season is from October to first snowfall. As with all of our rides, please be respectful of the shared nature of the trails.

Here are the details:

 

Tuesday Night Rides

Nothing planned until November after the cross race series are over. There will be an update on this in the next few weeks.
 

Thursday Night Rides

Our Thursday night rides will begin on October 8, 2015 at Lions Valley Park in Oakville with a start time of 8:00 pm which will shift to a 7:00 pm start as darkness permits.  This ride is usually about 1 hour in length covering two laps of the park and involves quite a few steep climbs and descents, giving riders a great workout.  Given the start time and the lack of lighting on the trails, strong lights are required to be able to see the trail suitably.  It is recommended that participants have a light that is a minimum of 600 lumens which is attached to your helmet to help navigate the twisty nature of the trails.  A second, powerful, handlebar mounted light is strongly recommended as a backup, along with a blinking red light on the back of your bike.  Parking is available at the south east corner of Neyagawa and River Glen.
  • Schedule: Start time initially will be 8 pm.  As days get cooler/shorter and pedestrian traffic drops off, we'll move the start time up. 
  • Meeting Location: The meeting point is the little strip mall on the North-East side of the intersection of Neyagawa Blvd & River Glen Blvd (South of Dundas St). Parking is best done in the lot across the street on the south side of River Glen Blvd. See map below:
 
 

Sunday Rides

Sunday morning rides will start on October 18, 2015 with a start time of 9:00 am.  The rides will typically be between 1.5 - 2 hours in duration and will start at the Ancaster Community Centre - for those who are familiar with the Paris-Ancaster event, we meet at the top of the final climb up Martin Rd by the baseball fields.  These rides are held on a combination of single track and rail trail.  

  • Schedule: Sundays at 9:00 am
  • Location: The meeting place is behind the Ancaster Community Centre. Directions to the Ancaster (Sunday) location:
    • take Hwy 403  to Ancaster
    • exit at Wilson St and turn right
    • go through the roundabout and exit left onto Meadowbrook Dr.
    • take Meadowbrook until it ends at Jerseyville Rd W.
    • Turn left on Jerseyville and immediately turn right onto Martin Rd.
    • Take Martin Rd and park at the lot on the right at the end of the large field. (if you go down the hill you've gone too far)
