Kit review and fit guide
New Winter items
Jupiter long sleeve jersey
The Jupiter LS jersey is an impressive piece of wet weather kit. It’s warm, comfortable when wet, and water repellent. It also has a large “butt flap” to protect you from wheelspray in the rain. It’s race fit, and less stretchy than the summer jerseys so consider sizing up if you’re between sizes.
Epic Pro wind vest
This vest has a windproof fabric on the front, reminiscent of a softshell but much lighter weight, with a breathable mesh fabric on the back. The two pockets offer some serious carrying capacity, and the fit offers room to layer underneath.
Vuelta Pro long sleeve jersey
A cozy warm layer for cool and cold days. The fabric is fleecy, stretchy and soft, and the taller collar will block out the breeze nicely. It’s not waterproof, but will keep you warm under a rain shell or on dry days.
The Basics of Burnaby Mountain
An Intro to Gravel in Vancouver
Where: Lakewood and Adanac
When: Saturday, October 26, 2019
Time: 9:00 am
Join us and discover the most accessible (and steep) gravel loops in Vancouver. We will break down some essential gravel skills.
Get tips on how to handle steep, slippery terrain, technical descents, root-hopping, rock-garden-navigating and receive real time feedback on your walking technique, a key part of any successful gravel outing.
Delta Gravel Grind
Where: South Side of Cambie Street Skytrain Bridge
When: Saturday, November 9, 2019
Time: 9:00 am
Join us for a big day of riding and exploring some of the local gravel routes! We will be heading through Richmond, over to Delta to explore some beautiful trails and waterfront dykes. Check out the map for our route.
If you ride from Vancouver, expect a 110-120km ride, and 4h30-5h ride time. The route is flat, but the combination of gravel and wind make for a long day out on the bike. You can expect a B2 level ride, but longer than our typical Richmond loop.
The paths are not technical, making it the perfect intro to gravel route for roadies curious about getting off road. Off-road tyres mandatory!
