  • Winter group ride time is 9 AM, and will follow the Richmond route.

  • During the winter there are no scheduled ride leaders. There are no designated women's group rides.

VCXC Season Finale

Blink, and you will have missed it. That is how fast cyclocross season flies by. Glotman Simpson Cyclocross is proud to cohost the season finale, at Queens Park in New Westminster, on November 11.

If you are still interested in experiencing the thrill of cyclocross racing, or the pleasure of heckling the racers while they suffer in the knee deep mud, come by to show your support. We have extra bikes you can try if you want to ride, and we have treats for you to hand up if you wish to spectate only.


Gravel Grind Remembrance Day Long Weekend

Date: November 12, 2018
Time: 9:00am
Where: South side of the Cambie St. bridge

Join us for a big day of riding and exploring some of the local gravel routes! We’ll be heading through Richmond, over to Delta to explore some beautiful trails and waterfront dykes. Check out the map below 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 are recommended!


Tag Spin Classes

Date: November 12, 2018
