The first Sunday club ride was a great success despite early wet conditions in Whistler. Nine riders headed nth to dryer roads and partial sun starting the days ride from the Pemberton Info centre. The group headed to Mt Currie via a long consistent climb up Xit Olacw Rd to the First Nations Grocery store prior to heading towards Gates Lake. A total of 70 km and fine riding was enjoyed by all.

The next scheduled Sunday ride will be May 24th starting at WVS.

WCC seeks Ironman Volleys for July 26th '15

Ironman Volleys Required for July 26, 2015 For the past few years Whistler Cycling Club have been volunteering for the Bike Transition T2 . Ironman Canada, in appreciation for our efforts, has given us a grant which allows us to develop youth programs, keep our membership fees very low, helps us to train leaders for the rides and gives us room to hold social functions. The Bike Handlers T2 is where the athletes drop off their bikes (eye candy for sure), we rack them and watch the athletes head off on their run. It is a fun day, we are a necessary part in the success of the triathlon.
