The very first CYKL Experience up at Blue Mountain happened this past weekend, and it was a hit! 8 riders, plus 3 CYKL staff (Kim, Jen and Jess) spent 3 days, two nights at a lovely chalet in the heart of Blue Mountain! Words can not describe how much fun we had, and how epic the riding was for all of us!

The weekend was filled with awesome homemade meals and snacks, followed by some intense and challenging riding around the Grey Highlands (big hills and high winds pushed our limits!). After the riding was done, Jess took us through a relaxing, and much needed, yoga class, then a few of us went over to the Scandinave Spa for further R&R! We want to THANK everyone for coming out and riding like champions! We created some wonderful memories and new friendships this weekend!

Our next CYKL Experience is NOW ON SALE! We’ll be heading back to Blue Mountain July 19th to 21st – for Hill Sizzling Session. Sign up now!

Check out some of the pictures here and on facebook!
