This Weekend’s Events

The riding season is off to a great start here in New Brunswick. The Victoria Day weekend saw many people out riding, and now the Velodrome NB events begin. We hope you all have your legs in shape, and are ready to tackle some great challenges this year.

We start the season with the great “Ellen’s Tour de Sussex”. An event to honour Ellen Watters, and a chance to show off the great riding of Kings County where Ellen learned to ride, and ride strong. Funds raised from the ride will be used to promote cycling in Sussex, riding camps for kids, and also to provide a scholarship to a female athlete from SRHS. The ride is SOLD OUT, however if you are not a part of the event, volunteers are still needed. Visit www.ellenstour.ca/volunteers for more information.

A ride to honour Ellen will certainly involve good food, and good coffee.

On Saturday the Wild & Wooly Junior XCO takes place at Woolastook Park just outside of Fredericton. The race course is designed with youth racers in mind, and so are the categories. U19, U17, U15, U13, and U11 racers are invited to experience racing for their first time, or to challenge themselves against some of the best junior racers in the province. Pre-Registration is available, so sign up today.

On Sunday is the second running of the Fitworks Active Club Prison Break. A dirt and gravel road experience unlike any other, with two different distances to choose from. Information on registration, route, pricing, and all you’ll need is located here.

We hope you get out and #BEONYOURBIKE this weekend wherever you are.

Rockwood Challenge Race Report

Wet conditions could not dampen the fun of the 2016 Rockwood Challenge. Under dark skies racers from around the province gathered for the annual event in Saint John. This event was hosted by the Saint John Cycling Club, and The Bike Guyz @ Alternatives, with support from Bike Works, the SJCC Trail Miners, Real Food Connections Saint John, . Without these awesome organizations, events around the province wouldn’t happen.
