RIDE CLUB 2017 IS NOW OPEN FOR REGISTRATION
Road riding is an excellent way to get outdoors and have fun. Rides can vary from a Sunday afternoon ‘cruise’ around the local park, to an all day effort in preparation for a Gran Fondo. In every instance, we think it’s always better with friends! 2017 will mark the sixth year of the Steed Cycles Ride Club, and we’d be thrilled if you joined us.
As a member of the club, we will have planned weekly group rides (Wednesday evening 6pm and Sunday morning 8am) led by a dedicated Steed Cycles Ride Leader. Things are changing for 2017 following feedback from our members with an increased focus on Rider safety and improving the riding experience for all.
This year we will have more groups (A,2,3,4,5)
Speeds ranging from 20kph – 30+kph
Smaller Groups with Additional Leaders
These rides offer a great opportunity to learn about group riding etiquette and technique in order to be courteous and safe.
New for 2017 we will be planning a supported destination ride for our members. More information to follow.
Club membership will also entitle you to a 15% discount on all regular priced parts and accessories**, and a 25% discount on all Steed Cycles branded clothing. To help keep you looking and feeling great on the road, your first “Steed Cycles” branded riding jersey is free when you sign up.
Cost and Requirements:
The annual cost is $130 which includes the newly designed Steed Cycles Ride Club Jersey ($139.99 value). The club will have active rides from April 9th through September 13th, 2017.
While our rides will be ‘no drop’ (meaning no one is left behind), we ask that you be able to ride for a few hours at a speed averaging around 20km/h. We will do our very best to provide different paced groups.
It will be mandatory to ride with an adequate helmet, and it’s also expected that you carry a spare tube, tire levers and pump, even if you’re not sure on how to use them (don’t worry, we’ll help you). The staff at Steed will be more than happy to give you a demo during a ‘tech night’, so please come by and ask!
