FOR THE LOVE OF CYCLING

Founded in 1994, Atomic Racing is one of the longest running clubs in Vancouver.

We love to cycle, whether an epic ride over mountains in preparation for a fondo, or a cruise through flat lands with a coffee stop in the back of our minds. In every instance, we think it’s better with friends. We ride year round and we’d be delighted if you joined us.

RIDING

We ride when it’s sunny, we ride when it rains. (Exceptions are snow/ice on the roads.)

Some of us race. Some of us ride for fun and fitness only. No one is required to race. However, we do encourage regular participation in Saturday rides.

Saturday club ride

From Musette Café: we ride where wind and weather directs us. Richmond, Belcarra, North Shore Mountains...average distance is 75km—100km.

Mid-week training

Spring/Summer: Tuesday Hills and Thursday Morning Park Loops

Fall: Tuesday Night Flats and Thursday Morning Park Loops

Winter: Tuesday and Thursday Morning Park Loops

We also organize yearly training camps and trips to farther away places such as Mt Rainer, RAMROD, the Sunshine Coast and the Pyrenees. Where next? Join us and make a suggestion.

Penticton Training Camp

Each spring, we rent a house and ride for three days through scenic backroads and rolling country in the Okanagan. The weather is usually good and the food even better.

OFF THE BIKE

Social get-togethers are scheduled throughout the year to give members a chance to meet when they're not cycling.
