Dear Cycling Enthusiast:
Welcome to the Cycling PEI web site. The volunteers and staff who comprise CPEI are skilled, enthusiastic and friendly. If you are looking for PEI cycling information, you will either find it here, or we'll help you to get it. Cycling PEI programs include beginner, intermediate and advanced road rides, mountain bike training, bicycle rodeos and safe riding courses, promotion of active transporation infrastructure, training of instructors, coaches and race officials, and high level competitive events. For people who are not so interested in competitive riding, prefering recreational riding, please ask about our Monday night road rides and Confederation Trail ride options.
September, 2013 - The 2013 riding season thus far has been excellent. We still have three more months of potential riding in 2013, so lets not call it over. Our summer programs are now complete, but that won't stop you and me from riding. The year featured a successful Red Isle Relay, Tour de Cabot and Gran Fondo. Our mountain and road programs are growing in numbers and strengths of riders. Athletes performed well at Canada Games. Our next big event is Volunteer Recognition Night on October 2. If you have volunteered to assist Cycling PEI in some manner this year, and have not been notified of our Recognition Night, please contact us.
If you are resident of Charlottetown or Summerside, please visit www.fixmystreet.ca when you encounter bad riding surfaces. Does the bike lane need to be cleaned? Pot hole problems? These are fair game.
If you drive your child to school, you decrease your child's ability to learn the rest of the school day. On the flip side, when children walk or bike to school, instead of being driven in a bus or car, they concentrate much better and the effects last. This is one of the main conclusions of a study (http://www.foodoflife.dk/
