Heads up chicks we’re off to Crawford leaving Fresh Air at 5:30 and trail head @ 6pm. Notice for next weeks ride we will car pool to Smith Creek for a trek up Holy Pale trail aka smith creek. Meet @ Fresh Air to depart promptly @5:30.
I’m super excited to have our ambassador Cory back for the season, she’s been traveling the past month, so welcome back Cory! We’ll lose Sheila now that the toonie rides have started every other Wednesday she will be volunteering her great organizational skills on the west side. We’ll still have Sheila alternate Wednesdays though. thanks Sheila for all your help this month, we so appreciate all you have done.
Kari and Nadia will be out with Cory and Liz and we’re sure to have a stellar pedal! Liz will be riding much lighter tonight since she has dropped the masters burden. Her thesis was accepted and her masters in Counselling Psychology is now complete! Woot Woot!
We’ll have a few new trek bikes out on the trails from our sponsors Fresh Air Experience. Remember if you want to try out one of their models, we have complimentary demo cards for you to try one out on Wednesday for free! Thanks Fresh Air!
Look forward to catching up on the trails! See you soon!

I would rather not be overweight than have that second helping, or I would like to keep my shape more than I want to skip my exercise today.
The healthy choice
Although exercising with others is motivating, it does not guarantee success. Success comes from Read the rest of this entry »
