Femme Sportif Ride Captain
Club Sportif Ride Captain
Cycling has been the story of my life. Growing up in a family business that revolves around the sport, has allowed me the opportunity to meet some great people, and see the world at a pace that only two wheels, your feet and a heart beat can provide. I’ve been riding a bike for as long as I can remember. Having ridden all disciplines of cycling, by far my favourite is road cycling. It’s fast, and provides endless options of where you can ride. No trails required, just the open road.
Born into it! Fortunate that I was !
Cycling is boundless, and is appealing to all. Whether you want to be competitive, have a means of getting around, or relieving stress. Cycling has something for all.
For myself, I love cycling for it’s stress relieving powers. In season, it is not uncommon to find me in the wee hours of the morning out on my bike before heading into the shop. I always fee better when my day starts out on my bike.
I’ve ridden many beautiful places in Europe, Japan, etc.. My most memorable experience on a bike is when I competed in Race Across America in 2008. That race took me right across the United States in under a week. Riding virtually night and day, to see how quickly I could get across the entire country.
Short (But not bootie short).
I don’t know about cutest, but my favourite cyclist has to be Phillipe Gilbert. Super classy rider. Strong all around, and is what I would like to be in terms of a rider.
(Vino, Cake?…) Definitely Vino. Nothing better than a couple glasses of red wine on a Sunday night. Especially after a hard Sunday ride. Amarone on special occasions
The Gruppetto ride captain
I was in my late 20’s when I got the ‘fitness bug’. I started swimming, but I was never much of a runner. I got into cycling initially for the exercise and soon found I enjoyed long rides. I started training to ride across Canada.
I enjoy being out on the road, especially on a long ride.
I like the opportunity it provides to challenge myself and physically push myself to succeed. It’s also a great stress reliever.
I cycled, solo, unsupported, from Vancouver to Ottawa in 1984. That’s before cell phones! So you’re really out there! I cycled through the Rockies; on four-lane highways through Edmonton; over the Arrowhead Bridge, at the time, the world’s longest wooden bridge in Superior Wisconsin; played tag with tornadoes across the mid-west and Michigan. The journey was full of adventures.
Short and preferably two mismatched colours!
Can’t really say anymore. All my heroes are as old as I am!
When I was a lot younger, I had a reputation as the pie man! And I sampled pies from Vancouver to Ottawa on my trip. But nowadays, a really cold, thick, dark stout really hits the spot!
