Crankmasters currently has riders active in track and road events and we conduct club races regularly in the season. We are always welcoming anyone interested in joining a competitive team in the Masters categories. We also have many cyclists in all age groups who just come out to cycle for fitness. In either case, anyone is welcome to come out and join with us for a ride, and learn about cycling in groups or practice riding in groups for competitive events. Crankmasters is active in promoting cycling and is involved with developing training and coaching with the Alberta Bicycle Association. We have members available to offer advice and ideas on fitness and competitive cycling who have many years of experience in cycling.
Road Race this week is out in Bragg Creek. We will follow the usual Route 66 out and back. A's and B's to summit and back. C's to base of climb and back.
We had 9 members of the Crankmasters competing at this year's Tour de Bowness Stage Race. Congratulations to all who entered and competed in mostly sunny weather.
The highlight of the weekend was a win by Dylan Hughes in the Cat 4 Road Race, which combined with his 4th place in the Criterium on Monday was enough to get him second overall for the weekend. Great job Dylan! For those counting that's Dylan's second win of the season (he previously won the ITT at the Jason Lapierre Stage Race) and his 9th and 10th top ten placings on the year.
Not to be out done, our resident Criterium expert Daniel Boileau beat Dylan to the line for 3rd in the Criterium, his third top 4 Criterium finish of the year.
Dawn Heinemeyer picked up one last top 10 results in the Women's 3/4/5 Road Race, and we had several other finishes just outside of the top 10, to give us a strong finish to the season of road racing. Great work everyone!
Next up is TT season with our own upcoming ITT/TTT weekend on Aug 13/14. This is the warm up for the provincial championships ITT/TTT help near Edmonton on Aug 27/28.
Dawn will be competing at the World Championships in Perth, Australia in September 2016.

Welcome to Edison School. Welcome to a centre for learning where children are encouraged to reach and grow within an emotionally supportive community. Welcome to a school that pushes students academically but never forgets to nurture creativity, curiosity, social development, and physical well-being. We welcome you to join us as we celebrate achievement and imbue a lifelong passion for learning, exploration and self-improvement.
At Edison we place an emphasis on the attitudes of our students. Developing a positive attitude towards learning, teamwork, and setting and achieving personal goals is crucial to fostering happy, well-adjusted children that will grow to become positive contributors to society. While each member of our faculty believes in our core values of academics, community and leadership, we are aware that the foundational development of positive attitude starts in the home. The Edison community works in partnership with the parents and caregivers of our students to provide support and guidance to each family.
Our rigorous academic program is complimented by strong athletics, a broad arts program, and social development through community involvement. Students from across all grades interact often, through whole-school events and inter-classroom volunteerism. A philanthropic mind-set is encouraged from a young age, and our Upper School students are required to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh program. By graduation, most of our students have completed at least one Advanced Placement course, with many high school graduates entering university with nearly a full semester of university credit (some of our past graduates have successfully completed a full year of university credit).
Our curriculum has been refined through years of experience, and we are constantly striving to improve upon our strong foundations. National core requirements are fulfilled and built upon; we currently teach the Singapore Math Programme and our Language Arts program is comprehensive and expansive. Vocabulary, reading comprehension and writing are taught from kindergarten through grade twelve, and language development is further supported through other core courses such as Social Studies. A broad and growing range of elective courses are offered, and students’ individual interests are fostered and developed.
Edison was founded in 1993 by parents who were concerned with the development of their children as whole people. Today, we still work to achieve this goal. Every aspect of a child’s development is considered and respected, and we support our students to grow into confident, motivated leaders who will always respect the value of learning and community.
