Coached sessions tailored to your fitness level and cycling ability.
Kits Energy has a group for you!
Our focus is on building a community of cyclists who have the technical expertise and confidence to enjoy any type of ride; whether it is a Saturday morning social, a charity event, or a long-distance fondo. We are not a racing club but through our progressive training program and weekly coached workouts, you are sure to get faster and stronger.
We meet and ride in the UBC area. The start location will change each week depending on the workout. You will be notified of the exact location a month in advance of the workout.
All Intermediate and Advanced groups ride from April to September. Registration opens on January 1st and closes when it is full. If a group is not full, late registrants may join up until July 15th.
The Intro to Riding group rides from June to August. Registration opens on February 1st and closes two weeks after the start date or on an individual case by case basis.
Please check back in January to register. If you are unsure which group is right for you, please email Kristina.
