Welcome To The Grande Prairie Wheelers Cycle Club Homepage: Ride or Die!!

The goal of the Grande Prairie Wheelers Cycle Club is to promote the use of the cycle for sportin', recreatin', and transportin', and as one of the best ways to have fun. The club offers a wide variety of activities to its members and encourages all ridin' enthusiasts to join them. The Wheelers are affiliated with the Alberta Cycle Association.
(There are days we just hate to ride alone.)


Club News

This year's keg party was a huge success with local biker band Ken and the Chainsuckers providin' the tunes. Just a note to all you Wheelers who "borrowed" kegs from the party that Snake would like the empties back to collect his deposit.

Happy April Fools.

The snow is melting and it is time for the Wheelers annual general meeting. The meeting will be held on April 9 at the Muskoseepi Park pavillion and starts at 7:00 PM.

Required Equipment
--Cycling helmet (ANSI, Snell or CSA approved) At light speed a skid lid holds your hair in place.
--Bicycle in good working order You can ride further in a day then you'd ever care to walk. Don't get stranded with mechanical failure.
--Cycling gloves and shorts (Recommended)

Remember
• Wear your helmet every time you ride.
  “Don’t leave home without it.”
• Wear bright colored clothing and ride defensively.
   See and be seen.
• Keep your bike in good working order.
• Carry a small tool kit and patch kit on your bike at all times.
   A quick fix beats walking.
• Always take food and water with you on long rides.
   A few loonies are also useful.
• Dress for the weather and be prepared for weather changes
   during your ride.
• It’s also a good idea to let someone know where you plan to
   ride and when you expect to be back.
