BIKE DOCTOR DETOURS

ADVENTURE CYCLING CLUB

 

We are a community of people inspired to adventure and explore life on a bicycle.

We are a non-profit volunteer-run club that operates with the assistance of our sponsor, the Bike Doctor. We seek out adventure and build community through adventure riding on gravel and trails and by organizing a women’s road riding club. We also organize a fun triathlon and a crazy night time cycle-cross race. Whether it's on a gravel road or a single-track trail, our organized rides are built for fun and fitness - and we always take the detour.

Adventure and community await!

 
 

Types of events

We offer a twice monthly schedule of volunteer lead Gravel Rides (see explanation below) for fast, and for moderate, riders in the spring and again in the fall.

#BeLikebruce triathlon

BD Detours organizes the BeLikeBruce Triathlon June 10, 2018 (See page link below) This triathlon is a memorial to a community hero, Bruce Gordon and his family, and is a fund raiser for Pancreatic cancer research.


Pedal wenches

We run an all-women, non-competitive road cycling club called Pedal Wenches. (See page link below) This highly successful club was started by Reagan Wildeman to smash barriers for women in cycling, and is now managed by Bike Doctor Detours and supported by the Bike Doctor.

HOW DO I SIGN UP? 

Go to https://ccnbikes.com and search for Bike Doctor Detours on the first page. You will be lead through the process. 


DO I NEED TO BE SUPERFAST?

No, but you need to be able to ride approximately 20 kilometres in an hour. This means you have a moderate fitness level, and that you have some experience on a bicycle. Our organized Gravel Rides do attract some very fit people, but we will always try to have enough volunteer leaders to accommodate a quick and a moderate group. Adventure is the goal.  In the well established Pedal Wench group there will be several groups of varying speeds, all lead by volunteer leaders


ARE ALL THE RIDES GUIDED?

No. We have a combination of “events,” with leaders, which will be advertised on this site and our facebook page, and we also use the facebook page to promote less formal rides which will usually have a leader.
