the Original Bike Club 2017


We’ve created a very different kind of bike club. We’ve created a novice/intermediate cycling club to help you start or progress your cycling ability while having a fantastic riding experience. Our club is the ultimate introduction to the world of cycling; our leaders will help guide you on your way to becoming a more confident and capable cyclist. 

This year we have added two additional factions which are available to all club members: the Original Triathlon Club and the Original Adventure Club. 

  • the Triathlon Training Club is not an official provincial tri club but provides new and aspiring beginner/intermediate triathletes meetup opportunities to train together. We will also be hosting 5 events, partnering with coaches who will isolate each of the 3 sports involved: swim, bike and run.

  • the Adventure Club shares the ethos of our ride club. Our goal is to help people who have aspirations to go on cycling adventures but who may lack off-road touring knowledge, experience, confidence or companions to do it. We will be organising 7 adventure trips throughout 2017. 

To join is easy!
