GSX is heating up the cyclocross season

It's hard to believe, but we're already half way through the cyclocross season. The GS Cycling cyclocross crew (GSX) have been smashing the competition with podium results each weekend.

But even better than the results, we've been having a blast watching our men's and women's riders from novice to elite taking aim at personal bests, improving their technique, and most importantly enjoying the rides and having lots of fun. Check out our latest photo galleries to catch a glimpse of the GSX crew in action.


Fall discounted membership now available

Our Fall season membership is now available for those who would like to race with the cyclocross team or ride with the club this fall/winter season. Fall membership includes Cycling BC Insurance, but does not include a free jersey or other clothing. This membership is for those not already members for 2015. Valid through the end of December 2015.


Don't forget your winter bike

It's officially bring-your-fenders-from-now-on season. Fenders are mandatory on Saturdaygroup rides. Let's be honest, we don't care if your bum gets wet or not. But we do care when your bike is spraying water, dirt and grime all over other riders in the pack. Please note riders who are not properly equipped with fenders will be asked to leave the group ride.

Ride time starts at 9 AM, and will follow the Richmond route. During the winter there are no scheduled ride leaders. Rides meet at the upper parking level above No Frills and Cuppa Joy Coffee House on West 4th Ave at Alma St. So come on out, we'd love to for you to join us and stay fit this winter season!
