Alberni cyclists excel with single gear bikes

Hard work produced hardware at a bike competition in Cumberland for the Alberni Single Speeders club.

The Alberni Single Speeders are

Alberni Valley cyclists came away with some honours from the eighth annual 12 Hours of Cumberland event last month.

It was the second time attending this event for the Alberni Valley Riders and Team Ozzies-sponsored Alberni Single Speeders “and one of our very favourites,” cyclist Lee Blais said.

Alberni single speeders ride with one gear to make it simple, It’s really not ever the perfect gear, too easy or too hard, he explained.

Highlights from the Cumberland event saw Seana Wright come in first in solo women, completing 20 laps in 11:49. Blais came in fourth with 20 laps in 11:31. Both were achieved on single speed bikes.
