Recreational cycling at KES is a fun and physical Fall sport. We go on road and trail rides with enough bikes to outfit 10-12 students. Of course bike maintenance is a must each and every day. We have a bit of a hard-core attitude (see video) and those who are new to cycling, learn quickly to keep up in a low gear on some of the rugged trails at the Fisherman’s Road trails, for example, and they learn to pedal hard on the Falmouth Flyer route on the Back Dyke Road.
Staying straight against the white line on a municipal road on a road bike requires balance and kinetic momentum which is fundamental to good biking and physical fitness. We have a dedicated group of students who like nothing more than to get outside in the sun, wind, rain or cold and pedal around Lake Pisiquid, Fort Edward, Haliburton House or the Sangster Bridge road.
We have a great community for biking!
