Prairie Pedals – Ladies Only Recreation Trail Ride

Prairie Pedals

Moose Jaw Pavers is now hosting a recreation ride for fitness, education, community, nature appreciation, and just plain fun. The weekly trail ride, led by an experienced rider, is offered in and around Wakamow Valley with the chance to do occasional rides at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park Trails. The 60-90 minute ride takes place in the Spring, Summer, and Fall and is focused on the beginner rider, but suitable for all levels with options to shorten or lengthen the ride depending on fitness. All ride participants are required to wear a helmet, bring water, snacks, and a bike in good working order. A mountain bike is ideal for the ride but a hybrid will also be suitable.

All ability and fitness levels are invited to come out to discover trails, learn biking tips, and have fun. If you aren’t sure if you fit in, come out and try a ride. While this is a club ride and the insurance requires the majority of the participants be members,, we can accommodate some non-members each ride to try it out. Simply complete the non-member waiver and bring it with you. You can participate in up to 3 club rides per year. We are sure you will be hooked and will want to join the Pavers.

The first ride will be on Monday April 15th @ 915. Meeting at the bottom of 7th Avenue. If you have any questions please contact us by email.

New Ride Group

This year there will be a women’s only recreational trail ride. The ride will be lead by women and is for all abilities and fitness level and will provide an opportunity to get outside, learn something new and have some fun. Details to follow soon…

Tuesday Night Ride

April 2, 2019

6:15 pm Start Time

Leaving from DQ on Caribou St W between 4th and 5th Avenue.

Spring in Saskatchewan is a period of transition. We get days that feel like summer, days that feel like winter, and everything in between.

TNR is 90 minutes, so you need to dress for that time period only. Check the weather before the ride and dress accordingly.

In order to have sustainable trails that can be ridden most of the year, we need to be cautious in the Spring.

It is easy to ride trails too early and leave a deep track that remains until late summer.

TNR will let the trails dry-up and harden before being ridden.

Tonight’s ride will be similar to the last few weeks:

Quiet residential streets that receive only local traffic.

Paved trails and some fast-drying gravel trails.

Valley trails will be scouted to observe conditions.

Tonight’s ride should be considered to be "easy", any bike with a selection of gearing will work.

"Easy" also means that this is the ride to introduce someone to riding in Moose Jaw, bring a friend.

It is also a great ride to build-up strength, stamina, and stability for when we hit the trails.

Come out now, so you can perform better later.

Do an ABC-Quick check of your bike.

Wear a helmet.

Bring something to drink.

Sunset is at 7:35pm

Civil Twilight ends at 8:09pm

See you at DQ,
