Welcome to the Arrowsmith Cycling Club
The Arrowsmith Cycling Club originally started up in 2000 with approximately 65 members. We have regular meetings to discuss club programs and issues and welcome any volunteer assistance and interest. The Club’s focus is on promoting the sport, providing social riding opportunities, trail building and maintenance, getting out there and riding! Arrowsmith Cycling Club is an affiliated club with Cycling BC (CBC).
Join us for a ride...new riders are always welcome!
For 2018, the race course designer is mixing it up, maybe not in the true XC definition but fun and challenging nonetheless. The standard course is 10km long; Beginners will ride 1 loop and the Intermediates will ride 2 loops. Experts will start on the standard course but then veer off onto a section that involves more climbing and descending on this 1 loop circuit.
The race will start in the Englishman River Falls Park and follow some great trails before starting the inevitable climb. All riders will follow the same course until the top of the Temple Dogs trail. At this point, the Expert riders will turn right and continue the climb while Beginner and Intermediate riders will turn left to start the descent.
The full Expert loop will also be about 20km with plenty of ascending and descending that will eventually lead them down to the Englishman River. For the Expert riders there will be an extra water station along the way.
There is also a special course designed for 12 and under, Youth riders that will be 5 km long and free for all U12 riders. Parents are encouraged to ride with their racers.
AJ’s Island Grill food truck will be in the Park to greet you after the race so bring some cash for a tasty snack.
