Ride Club 2016
RIDE CLUB IS FINISHED FOR 2016. COME BACK IN FEB 2017 FOR A FULL UPDATE AND REGISTRATION. STARTS APRIL 2017.
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! 2016 will mark the fifth 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 and Sunday morning) led by a dedicated Steed Cycles Ride Leader. Things are changing for 2015 following feedback from our members. There will be three groups once again but we will be dividing them by “Average Speeds”.
A Group: Avg. 30+ Kph in a group
B Group: Avg. 25-30 Kph in a group
C Group: Avg. 20-25 Kph in a group
These rides offer a great opportunity to learn about group riding etiquette and technique in order to be courteous and safe.
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 $120 with the Steed Cycles Club Sugoi Gobi 3 Jersey ($139.99 value). The club will have active rides from April 3rd through September 14th, 2016.
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!
