It’s the end of the season and many of us are heading off for our summer jobs, spring vacations or new adventures. I find at this time of the year I am always amazed at how fast the season fly’s by. One day I am saying hi to old friends in Ferraros the next I am saying goodbyes. Some will come back and others won’t, such are the hazards of living in a town like Rossland. In the past few years Ian and I have headed off to the USA Snowboard Association nationals, however due to Ian’s recent injury while competing at the X Games we are staying put this spring and I am reminiscing over last year’s trip. It was one of the best trips I have ever had; my girlfriend and I headed down to Moab, Utah in her Westfalia Camper for some biking. I spent my days riding with old friends and making new ones, enjoying every moment of girl energy on and off the trails. Moab is a beautiful place to bike, hike and be outside. It was three weeks of biking, with a couple of days of snowboarding in the middle to mix it up, all my favorite things in one trip. It was a great way to kick start my biking season. I learnt that’s what I need; puts me in shape, and gets my head in the game as well as my body and gets me so amped I have to go every day for the rest of summer!
Now the bike season is here it is time to step it up a notch and I have started to see the pleasure and benefits in a good spin class. Nothing can beat the real thing though, even if I can’t get out on the trails just being on a real bike outside is invaluable. For the past few years BettyGoHard has been offering a strengthening and conditioning ride series, we are doing the same again this year so check out the schedule online or get in touch with us to find out more.
