…and so the season winds down

….although it doesn’t need to stop for you. Fall weather brings tacky trails and great opportunity to build strength in skills and fitness that will believe it or not help your spring riding. The longer you an stay on your ride through the fall the shorter the time between your first spring ride!

 

Our facebook page is a great way to check in for rides going into the fall. If you are heading out and want company post an invitation!

 

Roadies have a big ride this weekend to Osoyoos! We wish them a safe and splendid experience and look forward to the tales of the road on your return.

Empowered to Lead

It always astounds us ambassadors to see the progress women make in fitness, skill and confidence in this program. A veteran crew of riders trailed to Lost Lake with a decent down Piper to Bailout and what started at the trail head as a suggested cruiser ride in plus 30 degree heat, transcended to a strong ascent which was truly awesome in of itself let alone comparatively to the first year of riding with the chicks!

 

Firstly, it is an honour to see so many first time chicks, sticking with the sport of mountain biking. Additionally, your fitness levels have surpassed the ordinary as you climbed like pack horses and descended like bulls. How great it is to see strong road riders feel comfortable with this program to challenge their limitations on the trails when they feel the need for a change.

Super Fun times were had by the crew that travelled to Silver Star Bike Park last week! The night was a perfect temperature. Although the nerves were sketchy to start, we found some great comfortable, yet challenging runs to make for an all round great adventure! Thanks for experiencing your limitations and stepping outside the box chicks!

 

Ambassador Cory led the Crawford crew on a great ride in town. Great to see Jen back on the mountain saddle….any reason is a good one. Hope you got your roadie replaced!

 

A gentle reminder to dress for the weather but a light shell is great to pack for the descent as the sun goes down. Hydrate well today and we’ll see you all up at Crawford for tonight’s trek! 6pm departure from trail head!
