Bateman's Cycling Club is a community based mountain, road and cyclocross cycling club. We focus on bringing together enthusiastic cyclists who want to participate in organized, safe group rides. The hope is to ensure that members have memorable experiences and inspire each other to improve their abilities.
Originally named The Shack Pack Cycling Club, it grew out of our Spin Shack. The Spin Shack is an indoor training facility at Bateman's Bicycle Company where cyclists and others train through the winter. Athletes who trained there were looking for a club to ride with outside, so once the weather got warmer the Shack Pack was born in the Spring of 2016!
Now with ALMOST a dozen weekly group rides on the road and trails, the Bateman's Cycling Club's main goals remain to be safe and have fun.
We have rides almost every day of the week from March until October and they all leave from the Bateman’s Bicycle Company location at 960 Bathurst Street, unless otherwise noted. Our Google calendar (below) provides details on every ride including expected pace and what to bring. A weekly email beginning in March provides a glance of what's ahead so you can plan your rides. Our Facebook page and Instagram feed often show the fun of where we went, what we saw or who came along. Our ride leaders ensure that no one is left behind and again the focus is having fun, riding fast at times but not racing through every ride!
