ABOUT THE OLD SPOKES CYCLING CLUB:

We offer non-competitive rides for pleasure and socializing while exploring our city and environs.

  • A variety of rides are offered each week from April to October.
  • Cyclists are responsible for getting to variable start locations.
  • Annual registration with a nominal fee is required.

We have 3 levels of cycling so all can choose the level that suits their ability:

    • Level 1 – Cycle a minimum of 18 km on Tuesdays at a slower pace with fewer hills and more water breaks. Shorter rides of 10 km are available the first three weeks of the season for those of us wishing some preparation.
    • Level 2 – Cycle a minimum of 30 km on Tuesdays and Thursdays at a moderate pace with some hills and breaks as needed.
    • Level 3 – Cycle in smaller groups a minimum of 35 km on Wednesdays, and Saturdays at a somewhat faster pace on routes that may include hills. We regroup and stop for breaks as needed.
    • All Levels - Pedal assist E-Bikes are welcome.
    • Watch for ride postings on days of the week beyond those designated.

You must be a member of the FLC Seniors Club
and also the FLC Cycling Club to join a Club Ride.
