About Nuovo Nord Cycling Club

Nuovo Nord is a fully 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 (2020)

Saturday mornings
Longer group rides outside city limits starting at 9am, or sunrise, whichever is later. Open to all cyclists with no dropped riders. Pace will be steady but dictated by the group. 

Thursday Stammtisch Ride *currently suspended*
A stammtisch is a regular group meeting around what’s typically a large table. We meet up at 6 at Ezio Faraone Park for an hour or two of riding in the city on quiet roads or trails, and finish with a brew and a bite. The pace is social and the stammtisch is open to any, including new, cyclists.

Monday Night Hustle 
A 60-90 minute ride tailored to attendance.

2020 Ride Guidelines

Effective June 3, 2020, Alberta Health Services and the Alberta Bicycle Association has allowed the return to cycling club activities, with some guidelines for the safety of our members and the general public.

  • 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)
  • All members of a club must sign a COVID exemption waiver relieving the club and ABA of responsibility if there is a COVID-19 transfer during a club activity
  • Ride leaders must be prepared to provide first aid or mechanical assistance and carry the PPE necessary to do so safely

Given this situation, Nuovo Nord has decided to implement further policies to further mitigate risk:

  • All cyclists on group rides must be active members of Nuovo Nord or another ABA affiliated club (no guest/one-day trial riders), with a signed COVID exemption waiver
  • Thursday rides will be suspended until AHS has approved the full opening of café/bar patios
