It's that time of year again. The Blizzard Bike Club has released it's official 2013 schedule, and it all starts with at 16-km road race at Baldonnel School this Sunday, Mar. 3.
The club is in its 31st year operating in Fort St. John, and founder Pat Ferris is hoping to see some new faces out hitting the roads this spring.
"Riding in the snows of March is mostly for the 'hardcore' experienced riders in the club, but you'd be surprised who tries it and finds it a lot of fun," Ferris said. "Most riders will start with mid-April and early May events when the weather is much better and we have better daylight."
"We seem to have this fearsome reputation for some unknown reason," he added. "None of us are headed for the Tour de France any time soon, but you'll find out we are a fun group of cyclists of all abilities."
The club's season runs from March to October every year and races tend to have shorter distance options for newer cyclists.
"The sooner you star, the sooner you will find out how much fun club cycling is," Ferris said.
Sunday's road race will begin at 2 p.m. at Baldonnel School and turbo training will continue until the Spring Stage Races start on March 29.
