Your last chance for bike romance! As the outdoor cycling season comes to an end, CYKL invites you to join us in Picton, Ontario for an amazing end of season weekend cycling retreat!

CYKL Experience
CYKL invites you to stay with us at Blossom Ridge Farms, a beautiful farmhouse, for 3 days and 2 nights on Friday October 19th to 21st. The weekend will be centered on cycling throughout Prince Edward County, while taking some time to see some of the sights (and tastes) of the region along the way. All meals and snacks will be prepared for you. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements. Cycling snacks and electrolytes are provided for you as well.

The Rides
Rides will be 60km to 80km a day. Riders will be provided maps, but the intention is try and stay together as a group. There will be a designated half way point for people to re-fuel, get water, go to the bathroom etc. All riders must be self sufficient, meaning you know how and have the gear to change a flat (just in case). It might be chilly or rainy, please check the forecast and come prepared with the proper gear. We ride rain or shine.

There will also be daily yoga and stretching sessions taught by the fabulous Jess Bowman, a pool (yes, it’s outdoors, and yes let’s hope for a hot Fall so we can use it!) to swim in, and a relaxing hot tube to enjoy.

The End of Season Workshop
Included in the weekend will be an “end of season” bike workshop. This workshop will teach you how to properly clean and maintain your bike, as well as teach you about wear and tear on your bike, so you have a smooth start to the 2013 cycling season.

Cost: $365 + hst

(non-refundable)

*** Cost includes everything listed above (accommodation, food, cycling, yoga, and workshop). Transportation not included. Riders must provide their own transportation and bikes. This retreat has a maximum of 10 participants and it will sell out! Sign up today!
