Ride With Us!

Welcome to Western Cycle Rides, where the love for cycling meets the fun of group rides in Regina and its surrounding areas!

At Western Cycle Rides, we're not just a cycling club; we're a community of riders passionate about exploring the great outdoors on two wheels. Whether you're a seasoned gravel grinder, a mountain biking enthusiast, just getting started in all this, or looking for family-friendly adventures, we have something for you.

Our weekly rides cater to all skill levels, from beginners to advanced riders. We believe in the joy of the ride and the camaraderie that comes with it. In the winter months, when the snow blankets the ground, we don't hibernate - we embrace the cold with our Fatbike Rides, carving our way through the winter wonderland.

More than just a cycling club, we're a social hub where friendships are forged and memories are made. Our environment is inclusive, non-competitive, and above all, fun. Whether you're tackling challenging trails or enjoying a leisurely ride with your family, you'll always find a warm welcome and a supportive community at Western Cycle Rides.

Join us for an adventure-filled journey through the picturesque landscapes of Regina and beyond. Whether you're seeking adrenaline-pumping thrills or peaceful moments in nature, we invite you to pedal with us and experience the magic of cycling together.

Our aim is to encourage as many riders as possible to find more ways to explore and enjoy cycling, and in that spirit we have no fees, but we do ask a few things to make sure that everyone is safe and welcome on our rides. 

  1. Wear your helmet when riding your bike.
  2. When riding on road ways, a rear light is required. A front light is recommended.
  3. Sign our liability waiver.
  4. Keep the necessary items with you for light mechanical repairs. ( Spare Tube, Plug Kit, Mini Pump, Tire Levers, Multi-Tool, etc.)
  5. Our rides are inclusive and safe spaces for all. Treat other riders accordingly.

Our rides cater to all skill levels, from beginners looking to hone their skills to experienced riders seeking new challenges. With a variety of trails to explore, you'll never have a dull moment as you navigate through rugged terrain and take in the natural beauty around you. 

New to the sport? Want a little refresher before hitting the trails? To start the season this year, Bert will be hosting a 4 week "Learn to MTB" series at Douglas Park. 

Join us for an unforgettable experience filled with adrenaline, camaraderie, and the sheer joy of mountain biking.

Gravel

Take a ride with us through the picturesque countryside every Monday evening. Explore the area's vast network of scenic gravel roads, where the beauty of nature unfolds at every turn.

Join us as we pedal through river valleys, seas of golden wheat, and charming rural landscapes, immersing ourselves in the tranquility of the countryside while enjoying the camaraderie of the group. 

Our gravel rides cater to all levels of rider, offering two distinct groups with different total distances and paces. Whether you're seeking a leisurely exploration or a more challenging outing, there's a perfect route for you. 

Taco Ride

Join us every other Wednesday for our beloved Family-Friendly Taco Ride, a social and casual lap around Wascana Lake that promises fun for riders of all ages! 

We'll make a pit stop at the ice cream truck to indulge in some sweet treats, say hello to the goats when they are in town grazing on Douglas Park Hill, and showcase our cycling prowess at "Trick Alley"!

After working up an appetite, we'll conclude our excursion at Bar Willow, where mouthwatering tacos, refreshing drinks, and lively camaraderie await. It's the perfect blend of family-friendly fun and mid-week Tacos, creating cherished memories with every pedal stroke.

Special Events

Whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a novice enthusiast, these events provide camaraderie, adventure, and a chance to explore the beauty of Saskatchewan.


The Gravelista

In Support of SickKids Canada

The Gravelista Series embodies the spirit of adventure and philanthropy on two wheels, offering cyclists a trio of bike events within the Great Cycle Challenge (GCC) framework, all aimed at supporting the noble cause of the SickKids foundation in Canada. 

Conceived by our ride ambassador, Michelle Dominey, in 2023, the Gravelista Series offers two gravel rides each with two distance options, and one family-friendly Wascana Park ride. Riders can expect beautiful scenery, great company, and great memories, all while making a tangible difference in children's healthcare. 

At Western Cycle, our commitment to the GCC runs deep, with our team members actively participating in the challenge for years. Embracing the ethos of community and compassion, we proudly adopted the Gravelista as an Official WCR ride series this year, further amplifying our dedication to pedal for a purpose and champion the health and well-being of future generations.

There and back Again.

A Bikepacking Adventure.

We're gearing up for an exciting bikepacking adventure in September! 

While the date and route are still up in the air, we're planning an out-and-back journey, with a memorable overnight camping experience at one of the area's picturesque parks. 

This new venture has us bubbling with excitement, and we can't wait to share more details as our plans solidify. Keep your eyes peeled for updates on what promises to be an unforgettable trip!

The SAnta Ride

Each December, the spirit of giving takes to the snowy trails of Wascana Park as riders don their festive attire for the annual Santa Ride. This cherished fat-bike event not only celebrates the joy of the season but also serves as a beacon of support for the Regina Foodbank and Carmichael Outreach. 

Amidst the winter wonderland, participants pedal through the park's scenic paths, spreading goodwill with each turn of the wheel. Post-ride, laughter and camaraderie fill the air as riders gather to share sausages, holiday cheer, and good company. 

Yet, the true heart of the Santa Ride lies in its charitable mission. Every rider contributes to the cause by bringing donations of food or warm clothing, ensuring that the spirit of giving extends far beyond the ride itself. 

With each donation, we strive to bring warmth and happiness to those in need, illuminating our community with the light of compassion and generosity.

Our Ride Ambassadors

None of these events happen without the time, energy, and dedication of our volunteer ride ambassadors. Some of our ambassadors are bike shop employees, some previously were employees, and some are customers who have become part of the Western Cycle family. Read on to meet your ride's hosts below.

Bert is not only the leader of the Tuesday night MTB ride and Wednesday night Taco ride, but also makes sure that this Western Cycle Rides thing happens year after year.

Stephanie Bank

Stephanie, a Western Cycle Ride Ambassador for 6 years, hosts the Monday evening gravel rides. Steph has a knack for choosing routes that both showcase the beauty that surrounds our city, and can be enjoyed by riders of all levels.

He lead the Regina Multisport Club's Thursday night road ride with Tara, the two of them deciding to step back from that role after 10 years of service. Although he is not heading up a ride of his own this season, expect to find Louis helping out on Monday nights and causing trouble at the Taco Ride.

Tara Gillies

Tara is a former bike shop staffer, and lead the Western Cycle sponsored RMC Thursday night ride with Louis for 10 years before taking a step back after finishing last Autumn. Much like Louis, you can look forward to seeing Tara out on our group rides in a supporting role, or just for the fun of it.
