About Nuovo Nord Cycling Club

Nuovo Nord is an inclusive social & recreational cycling club in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

We like to ride fast, but not too hard. We may be a little vain about how our bikes look, as well as what we wear while riding them, but we try not to take ourselves, or each other, too seriously.

We follow “the rules”, but not too intently. We ride to justify eating a lot, and drinking good local beer. Sharing the beauty of the ride is our mandate, and we thank the local friends & businesses that help us to do so through fuel, word-of-mouth, or just a place to hang.

Weekly Rides (2021)

Sunday mornings
Longer group rides outside city limits starting at 9 or 10am. Open to everyone with no dropping of riders. Pace will be steady but dictated by the group. 

Tuesday Night Social Ride
Our early week rides have a long(ish) history of being an entry point to group/social cycling. We meet up around 6pm depending on the time of year at Ezio Faraone Park for an hour or two of riding in the city on quiet roads or trails, and frequently finish with a brew and/or a bite. The pace is social and this ride is open to any, including new, cyclists.

Midweek Hustle 
A 60-90 minute ride tailored to attendance. Often a good time to work on your fitness or another part of your riding, or just another excuse to fit a ride in.

Ride scheduling and attendance will be coordinated via our Strava club. Please email us if you have any questions or concerns about that.

As of March 13, 2021, current Alberta Health guidelines and our club policy will direct us to continue with our club rides in the same fashion as last year:

  • Rides are limited to 10 participants
  • No one with symptoms of illness will be allowed to participate
  • All riders from different households must maintain 2m of physical distancing at all times (moving or stopped)
