The 45NRTH Fat Bike Triple Crown presented by Winter City Edmonton will scratch your itch for racing during the winter. Canadians are accustomed to surviving the winter and many take to any sport that gets them outside.  For the cyclist who enjoys ripping their local trail in the summertime, the Fat Bike now enhances the ability to gain the same pleasure of trail riding in the winter.  Creating a sense of enjoyment, Fat Biking improves winter riding and allows people to embrace getting outside to combat the winter blaws.

Alfred H. Savage Centre

The Alfred H. Savage Centre in Whitemud Park makes it easier for Edmontonians to pursue nature-related activities in the river valley. The building is named after Alfred Savage, Commissioner of Public Affairs for the City of Edmonton between 1974 and 1981. He was a driving force behind City facilities such as the Muttart Conservatory and the John Janzen Nature Centre.

The centre is built to LEED Silver standards (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). Achieving this standard reflects the City of Edmonton’s The Way We Green strategy.

The building uses:

Geothermal heating

Water use reduction methods

Reflective roofing

Exterior light fixtures that point downward for less light pollution

And during construction 84% of waste was diverted away from the landfill mainly by recycling material.

License information

All participating riders must be members of an affiliated club, or holders of a UCI license. If you are not a member of an ABA affiliated club, you may use a “One Day Tryout” for your first race. Any other events you wish to participate in for the rest of season will require a club membership.
