Poker Ride

Headwinds Poker Ride

This past weekend was a great one to get out and contemplate the bigger things in why are the coulees so brown? Is rain water falling down or the earth falling up? And how long you can keep the fat bike hidden from your significant other?

The ride was a huge success with loads of local riders out enjoying the coulees. Thanks to all that attended and to our sponsors.

Poker Mountain Bike Ride

October 08, 1:00 pm

Lethbridge Headwinds Cycling Club is hosting a mountain bike poker ride. Meet up behind Lethbridge College (on the red shale track).

The Ride

Riders will meet at the college and ride 15-20km. The ride will include some of Lethbridge’s top trails and funnest descents. The best part is that you don’t have to be fast to finish first. The day is a fun social ride and not a race. At the bottom of four of the descents there will be playing cards. The best poker hand made of your four cards plus the one flipped over at the end of the ride will determine placing and prizes.
You just have to finish the ride to potentially be number 1!

The Course

The course will not be flagged, however there will be markers at the top of each descent and marking where the cards are. The map can be found here

How to Join the Ride 

The ride is free to Lethbridge Headwinds members. Not a Member? There will be a $10 fee to participate and you will need to fill out a Headwinds waiver before riding. Waivers will be provided on-site on the day of the ride, come a bit early to complete a

FunDough was a Go!


Yesterday,14 members rode the Bakery FunDough (aka Bakery WINDDough). The pastries were fantastic, the tailwind was awesome and the headwind helped to burn off the calories. Overall the official first Bakery Fundough was a huge success and I think everyone enjoyed the event. Thanks to everyone who came out and braved the breeze yesterday. If anyone has more pictures please send them to me.
