Winter rides take place every Saturday afternoon, from the beginning of November until the end of March. So the first ride for the 2021/2022 winter ride season will be Saturday, November 6th, 2021. Rides will be cancelled if the temperature is lower than -20C or lower than -30C with the wind chill.
Riders meet at 1:00PM in the parking lot of the Saskatoon Civic Conservatory, at 950 Spadina Crescent East (this is the former Mendel Art Gallery). The route will vary depending on the wind and the preference of the riders taking part. Rides will typically last about 2 hours but may run a little longer.
In order to participate, riders must have either a FAT bike or a mountain bike with studded tires. Riders are also required to have a helmet. This year we are running these rides jointly with the Saskatoon Cycling Club, so any member of either the Horizon 100 Cycling Club or the Saskatoon Cycling Club is welcome to participate.
