WEDNESDAY NIGHT GROUP RIDE
Pedalhead's Wednesday Night Group Ride is a weekly mountain bike group ride that explores Edmonton's best singletrack trails. No membership is required -- we just ask that you consider us for your next purchase. This page is updated when the ride status changes.
Group rides are currently cancelled until AHS moves past Phase 3, so we can gather in groups of larger than 10. Check back for updates soon.
- This is an off-road mountain bike ride. No hybrids or cyclocross bikes.
- Choose a group that suits your level of ability and fitness: Novice, Intermediate, Advanced or Expert.
- All groups except Expert will wait for slower riders, but please know how to get back to the shop in case you actually get lost.
- If you suffer a mechanical and it can be fixed within 5 minutes, the group will wait for you.
