Welcome to Bromont in the beautiful Eastern Townships of Quebec, where the National Capital Region Chapter is planning a H&S from May 24, 2020 until May 30, 2020. Bromont is well known for winter sport activities as well as summer time activities. It is home to the Bromont Velodrome, a 250 meter outdoor cycling track, as well as the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park.
Explore the lesser-known eastern half of the Lower Fraser Valley with both short and long rides: to Harrison Hot Springs, the amazing Quintette Tunnels at Othello (remote start), Chilliwack wet lands, Clayburn Village, Bridal Veil Falls, Silver Lake in Whatcom County (bring passport/Nexus) and more. We’ll have likely four rides per day, led by cyclists to be selected from the group of participants. The event will feature a welcoming dinner (not included in fee) on Monday, three full riding days Tuesday through Thursday, each with a happy hour social gathering, and a short ride on Friday morning.
Welcome to the beautiful and diverse landscapes of the Shuswap – North Okanagan! Enjoy the sights, sounds and smells of nature as you explore on your bike some of over 1500 kilometers of paved back roads in the area. Along each day’s cycling route we can enjoy short walks, visits to local wineries, swimming beaches, bird watching “hot spots”, scenic view points and cycle-friendly local cafes. Our hub for the week’s rides will be at Sorrento Centre on Shuswap Lake, 35K northwest of Salmon Arm via Highway 1.
The Southern Gulf Islands are perhaps best known for their artists, wineries, fromageries and farms, as well as for their natural beauty. The islands and surrounding ocean are rich with ecologically diverse plants and sea life including Garry oaks, wild lilies, kelp beds and Orcas. We’ll explore Pender Island (our hub), Mayne Island and Galiano Island: cycling and walking “on island time”.
Greater Victoria offers something for everyone. The four days of rides vary widely in distance, difficulty and diversity and are sure to satisfy all. Each day will offer distances from fewer than 40 km to perhaps 100 km. Each ride will have a leader & a sweep. Day rides will include the famous Galloping Goose and Lochside Trails plus others, as well as mostly low-traffic roads with good shoulders. Along the way, there will be water vistas and accesses, forests & fields, historical and contemporary points of interest.
Extend your 2020 biking season with a week of cycling on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast! This hub and spoke will take place in November and will be based out of St. Pete Beach, known for its sunshine, soft sand beaches and dedicated bike trails. We will explore the Pinellas Trail and other bike trails and roads in the Tampa/Sarasota/St. Petersburg area, with stops along the way to explore the sites and sample the seafood.
