Spring & Summer Rides

Sunday

Gastown's bread and butter, weekly Sunday rides start in March and typically run until the end of September/October. Throughout the summer season, we start rolling at 8am and tackle anywhere from 75 – 120km. In 2021, a full ride calendar will be made available to members, allowing individuals to anticipate a weekly experience that corresponds with their relative speeds and appetite for distance. All routes celebrate the diversity of scenery available in the lower mainland.

More particulars about each ride will appear each week on our club’s TeamSnap page.

Fall & Winter Training

Track Cycling

You don't have to race in order to enjoy the velodrome! The Burnaby Velodrome Club offers year-round coached workouts for people of all abilities; from the weekend warrior and GranFondo junkie to the seasoned veteran, there's something for everyone at the track.

 

The workouts focuses on anything from bike handling skills and race tactics to threshold intervals and all-out sprints. And, because you're not held in place, you're always working on core stability and balance. Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter...it's always the right season for track cycling.

 

To get started, please visit the Burnaby Velodrome Club's website.

Cyclocross

CX

Typically takes place outdoors in the fall & winter months. Courses consist of many laps featuring gravel, mud, wooded trails, grass, steep hills and obstacles, and require quick dismounting plus carrying the bike. The emphasis is on aerobic endurance and bike-handling skills.
