New Years Day Rides

CrankMaster Club - Calgary, Alberta

The twenty four CrankMaster riders that assembled at North Glenmore Park in Calgary on New Years Day certainly know the benefits of a good old Alberta Chinook. At ride time the temperature was +7 Deg C and the wind was fairly light by Calgary standards at 10-15 kph from the WSW. Actually better conditions than we raced in last May if the truth were known.

As the attached photo shows the roads were mostly bare and there was no lack of enthusiasm shown by all. Most riders completed three laps of the park (5 kms per lap) with a couple of keeners doing five. Even though the weather was warm for this time of year a warm beverage at the local coffee shop certainly hit the spot at the end of the ride. This was a perfect start to the 2007 cycling season.

Happy New Years to all.

Blizzard Bike Club - Fort St. John, BC

Seven Blizzard Bike Club riders came out under fairly warm (+4) degree conditions for the club's New Years Day Ride.

After a 15 km windy cycle, the group retired for food and refreshments at the Lowry Estate.

This famous event was first started in 1985 as a way to give an early start to the cycling season. The coldest was the 1992 edition at -39 C and warmest was a balmy +14 in 1986.
