Club Rides – Week of Sept 26th

Time to get the lights charged. Wednesday Nighter will require lights to see the trail and to be seen. Night riding is an absolute blast and with there are great light options available in the local bike shops to extend your riding season! A headlight for the handlebars and a taillight work well. Add an extra light to your helmet and you are well on your way to some night riding joy!

Wednesday Night MTB Ride – Wednesday, September 28th – meet at the 7th Avenue Bridge and be ready to ride at 6:15 pm. This will be a 90-minute ride through Wakamow Valley. The trails are in fantastic shape and expect to ride the singletrack and have fun on the trails. Any mountain bike is the most suitable bike for this ride. Bring lights, water and wear a helmet. 

Sunday Morning Gravel Ride – October 2nd – meet at the Safeway patio and be ready to ride at 10:00am. The ride will be about 90 minutes long and may break into a couple groups based on pace. The route will be based on the weather (wind) conditions.

What to bring to a club ride?

  • 2022 Moose Jaw Pavers Cycling Club membership along with a 2022 SCA membership (available here)
  • Helmet – mandatory to be worn during all club rides. Not only is this an insurance requirement it just makes sense!

Weekend Rides – Sept 24 + 25th

Saturday September 24th – Prairie Pedals Ride: This is the year-end ride for the group. Meet at the Lower Chalet parking at 10:00 am Saturday, Sept. 24th for an introduction to the Buffalo Pound Trails. It’s a 30-minute drive to get there plus a 90-minute ride. So give yourself plenty of time Saturday morning. Bring water and helmet. Dress according to the weather – gloves, layers, ear band/buff. You will need to purchase a day Park Pass if you don’t have one. I have room for some of you and your bikes to come out there with me. Please RSVP asap if you’ll be there and let me know if you’d like a ride. We will also draw for some prizes! Hope to see you all there!
