Program-x

X-tend the season

Upcoming Rides

Think outside of the Road bike and Spandex box

Think of winter sports and what you wear for skiing.

Think of summer days free of forecasted thunder storms.

Do you have a ride you want to lead? Perhaps you were planning on doing the ride on your own, or with a small number of TBN friends. Contact program-x@tbn.ca and we'll fit it on the calendar. This will be a "Leader's Choice" ride. A distance of, say, 50 to 70 km might be best. In the email, include the following information:

  • Date/Time (Give at least 48 hour lead time)
  • TBN or Wednesday Wheelie Club RideWithGPS Event/Route(s) to be used. Note what distances will be ridden.
  • Group size limit you are comfortable (less than or equal to current provincial Covid-19 limits)
  • Any specific text you want to see in the Event Details (e.g. rest stops, route notes, etc).

For Tourist-class rides: Since we do not ride with a "sag-wagon" or a "sweep", riders should be prepared to keep a reasonable pace (upwards of 20 kph) so as not to fall behind. Although we usually ride in groups, this doesn't always happen and so we ask that all riders come prepared to be self-sufficient. As a minimum, this means you should be able to read maps and fix a flat tire on the side of the road.

Riders need to print and bring a map and cue sheet for the route, or download the route to their Garmin or smartphone device. Cycling helmets are required for all riders. For more information, please contact the Program-X coordinator, at program-x@tbn.ca.


Today added the program-X, Hamilton's hill bike ride, the longest and highest winding uphill ride. Only 3 people registered in total. All are Wednesday Wheelie riders. At break time, the oldest, 80 years old, asked, John, are you retired? I smiled, I'm 71. The third person said, I wish I am back 71. He was 77. The winding mountain road, the quick photo shots, tell much more about my two dear friends.
