the Original Bike Club 2018

We’ve created a very different kind of road and mountain bike club: a novice/intermediate cycling club to help you 

start or progress your cycling ability while having a fantastic riding experience. Our 

club is the ultimate introduction to the world of cycling; our leaders will help guide you on your way to becoming a more confident and capa

ble cyclist.

Also, NEW for 2018 is our mountain bike rides. We cater to the beginner and intermediate mountain biker and rides will be led by Ryan, our General Manager,  NCCP Level 2 coach and Muddbunnies Founder, on Burnaby Mountain and Eagle Mountain in Port Moody. All trails are mountain or cyclocross bike friendly and will last approx 2 hours. Young rippers welcome!

Additional Clubs:

We have added two additional factions which are available to all club members: the Original Triathlon Club and the Original Adventure Club. 

  • the Triathlon Training Club is not an official provincial tri club but provides new and aspiring beginner/intermediate triathletes meetup opportunities to train together. We will also be hosting 3 events, partnering with coaches who will isolate each of the 3 sports involved: swim, bike and run.

  • the Adventure Club shares the ethos of our ride club. Our goal is to help people who have aspirations to go on cycling adventures but who may lack off-road touring knowledge, experience, confidence or companions to do it. We will be organising 4 adventure trips throughout 2018.
