  • Please review  basic group riding skills required  below

While we aim to accommodate all cyclists, we want you to be comfortable and safe riding in our groups. Some basic group riding skills are mandatory, and you will develop more with us, but we ask all riders have a basic level of proficiency. All riders should be able to:

  • Feel comfortable riding at an average speed of 23-25 kilometres per hour, for a distance of 60km
  • Ride one handed and be able to signal with right/left hand while maintaining control of your bike
  • Ride in a straight line and not deviate while shoulder checking right or left
  • Maintain a steady and even riding pace, comfortable drafting behind other riders . Proximity to others will vary with the groups, capability to ride one bike length behind would be a guideline for the less experienced groups
  • Anyone without these skills should inquire about a Join the Peloton Introductory clinics

You must have a road bike, and we strongly recommend clipless  pedals to ride efficiently with the group. If you have any questions about your current ability and whether our club may be right for you, please contact TaG Cycling.

TaG Club – 2020  Updates

Nov 24, 2020  – Check the TaG Club Strava page for new Wayfinding points

TaG Gravel Wayfinding Challenge
Since we are restricted again with organizing group rides, we came up with another Strava Challenge to get our club members motivated to ride, this time on gravel. This challenge is more about having an adventure than speed and endurance.How it works:
Each week we’ll post the coordinates of 3 waypoints, located on some gravel section on TaG’s Strava Club page. The challenge is to connect the points in a most creative way in one ride, by yourself or in your family/friends team. Take a picture at each waypoint of your team. Save your ride on Strava with the tag: ’TaG Gravel Wayfinding’
Most creative route and best pictures will be awarded.Get out there and have some fun! …..Marcel
