About the One Aim Cycling Club
8As the One Aim Team has grown, we realized that we needed a mechanism to administer the many tasks and functions associated with coordinating an increasingly large team. We have always believed in finding a way for everyone in the team to be able to apply their particular strengths to the benefit of the team as a whole. Some are strong riders but struggle with fundraising; others have no problem raising the funds but need help with other aspects. Establishing the One Aim Cycling Club provides the infrastructure to support all the activities of the team.
The One Aim Team: The One Aim Team will be in its 8th year for The Ride in 2017. Our team grew out of a training group that we established for the first Ride in Alberta, in 2009. We have grown from 18 members in 2010 to over 100 since 2014! For the last few years, we have been the second largest team in The Ride (only Enbridge is bigger)!
The One Aim Team is a team for all shapes, all sizes and all ages; the best demonstration of this is that, over the past 5 years, One Aim team members have been in the first group of riders into Camp on Day 1 and some of the last riders into the finish on Day 2. We have a very welcoming group who help each other with all aspects of The Ride from the actual riding/training to bike-maintenance and fundraising…and we also have a strict “no drop” rule on our training rides. We also arrange ad hoc rides that are typically longer and faster for the more ambitious riders.
