Every September, Horizon 100 conducts the Founders Ride to celebrate the founding members of the club.
Held in mid-September, Horizon 100 club members gather to ride through the Prince Albert National Park. Starting in Waskesiu, riders head south along route 263.
The longer ride goes to Christopher Lake, where riders stop for lunch before coming back. This makes a 127km loop. A shorter option has riders turn around at the park gate, making the total ride about 80km.
The dates and details for the 2019 ride will be available in the coming weeks.
About Horizon 100 founders:
- Horizon 100 was started by 5 Saskatoon cycling enthusiasts in 1991.
- The founding members were: Ray Wight, Howard Lowe, Sam Hamilton, Brian Franc, and Richard Kolen.
- Horizon 100 had only 9 member’s in it’s inaugural season. Today the club boasts more than 280 members, making it the largest cycling club in Saskatchewan!
- The club is called “Horizon 100” as the founding members imagined that “if someone can ride 100KM then their abilities are only limited by the horizon”.
- Yellow is the club colour because of the founder’s affection and passion for the Le Tour de France.
