Tuesday Night Road Rides!

TAWS Bike Garage Tuesday Night Road Ride starts this spring! Ride leaves from the shop at 5:45pm, route will change each week, but expect 30km or so of riding, with an average speed of approximately 25km/hour. There will some some climbing, with regroup points after each climb. Rides will finish at the shop, and many of us will hit Monks on Marine after the ride. Please reach out if you have any questions about the ride, or requirements. 

    • Requirements/expectations
      • Comfortable riding in a group. We will be riding in pairs along road ways during this ride. You'll get more comfortable with more practice. 
      • Drop style handle bars only please! This is a safety requirement. Wide, flat handlebars take extra space and precautions when riding in a group. 
      • Insurance - we have created a club, with CyclingBC insurance that is required to attend our rides. Club registration is $10 for youth, and $20 for adults. Insurance is through CyclingBC, most of us will be covered under the 'Cycling for All' License ($80.00) for group rides, and most grass routes races (Island Cup MTB, Cross on the Rock etc). If you're unsure, and want to check it out before registering. We can have you sign a wavier, and allow you to participate in 1 'test ride'. Link below to register for the club. Please reach out if you have questions regarding insurance.
