Thursday Night Cyclocross Training

Come out and enjoy fall with like-minded cyclists! Cyclocross is a great way to stay in shape in the fall because you are working at a higher intensity for a shorter time period. You stay warm in colder weather because you're burning more calories!

FAQ 2017

What is it?
Practices take place from 6PM until dusk each Thursday from Aug 31 until October 12th at Lakewood Park (just east of Lakewood Civic Centre)

What do I need?
You need a mountain bike or cyclocross bike, a helmet, an SCA membership, and a willingness to have fun.

Who?
We have ability groups for all ages. We even have a kids group, so mom and dad can participate while the kids are having fun too. Note: children must be able to ride on a two wheeled bike without training wheels.

How much?

The 17 Weeks to Spring winter training program is a training program where you ride your bike indoors on a wind trainer with a group of like-minded individuals. The group follows a training program designed by a certified cycling coach. A typical session includes about an hour on the bike structured as a warm up, a set of intervals based on heart rate or power and a cool down, followed by core strength and stretching exercises.

What do I need?
You need a bike in good working order, a wind trainer (we have 4 available for rent), a heart rate monitor and/or power meter (we have 4 heart rate monitors available for rent), a membership in the Saskatchewan Cycling Association and an interest in improving your fitness and cycling over the winter.

FOG&G Tuesday and Friday Morning Road Rides

We meet at 9:30 AM on Tuesday and Friday at the German Club (160 Cartwright Avenue) for an approximately two hour ride. What does FOG&G stand for? Fast Old Guys & Gals of course!

The goal of this ride is to allow club members to get out and work on intensity or ride for pleasure while in the company of other club members on a set route. Therefore, it's likely that riders will be strung out along the route possibly in groups of 1 - 7 people. The goal is to keep the groups smaller than 8 people as the intensity may be a bit higher, so the risk of injury increases.

The focus of the ride is fitness and/or pleasure. It is suitable for anyone, of any speed, on any style of bike. It is a timed ride (1.75 hours) which means riders ride out and back at a pace they find comfortable and finish at approximately the same time. Speeds will vary greatly, so if you are not sure you will be able to ride as fast as some of the riders, bring a friend to ride with. Some riders prefer to ride solo which is totally acceptable. After the ride we go to a coffee shop so plan to stick around and visit.

The following rules exist for your safety and enjoyment:

  • you must be a 2017 registered BCW member.
  • must have a bike in good working order, no aerobars are allowed.
  • must have a helmet and wear it.
  • No overlapping of wheels.
  • Do not cross the white shoulder line unless you intend on turning left.
  • Take care of each other. Welcome new riders and have a great time!
