July Heat Wave!

July Heat Wave!

Welcome to summer!

Summer is officially here! Though we haven't got the 40+ degree temps that some parts of the province have, it has been incredibly humid and HOT. It's always important to drink lots of water when doing any physical activity, but with the heat wave we're currently experiencing it is especially important to stay hydrated! Water is critical, but electrolytes are important too! Check out this great video that the folks over at the Global Cycling Network youtube channel put out a couple of years ago for some good tips on hydration!


We finished up with Sprockids since the last newsletter, and, wow, did the time ever fly! It was such a rewarding experience for the leaders to see the kids grow in their self confidence and riding skills. 

The feedback from participants and parents was great! If interest is high, we will look to do another session in the fall to coincide with the kids going back to school and the cyclocross race season! What is cyclocross?! Check out this GCN video for an outline of what professional cyclocross looks like! The GCN guys don't talk about it, but you don't have to have a cyclocross bike to participate and have fun in local events. Any bike will do, and everyone is encouraged to participate. The shorter time length means its accessible to everyone, any bike, and all fitness levels. Even if you don't race, make sure you come spectate and experience the camaraderie!


With the fine weather we've been having folks have been out and about riding. Check out some pictures from clients recent adventures from Shediac to Fundy National Park!


The trail miners have been hard at work all year! They appreciate all forms of help including shovel time and monetary donations. Check out their work on the saint john cycling face book page here and see some recent work in the following pictures. Consider joining them for a trail build. All are welcome, and families are encouraged to attend together!



The Saint John Cycling short track adult and youth race series are going strong! Both series are seeing some good attendance, but there is always room for more!

Check out some pics from yesterday's events below, and click here and here to see a bunch of pics from yesterday's youth race!

It's not too late for you and/or your little one to participate! Sign yourself up here! Check out this link to register your little one for one or both of the remaining races!

Coming up this weekend on the Velo NB calendar is the Whiterock XCO in the Hillsborough recreation area. A ton of climbing means a ton of descending! So make sure you sign up today.
