I received this video in an email this morning and wanted to share it with you.  I have always loved bikes, however I have always taken them for granted.  Over the past few years I have caught the bug - bikes are magical.

Pro Energy Towels - Have you heard of them?  I was introduced to the concept while working the Loeka booth at Interbike; a friend of mine came up and asked me to take a sniff of what looked like a wet wipe.  Intrigued (and possibly a little hungover looking for a pick me up) I did.

Flew into Vegas on Tuesday night for the Interbike show.  Unfortunately I couldn't get off the island earlier to get to the dirt demo to try out the new Rocky Mountain bikes,but even checking them out at the show is great I think the bike for Rossland is the Altitude now its just about figuring out the details.

Been super busy at the Loeka clothing booth and have not had a chance to really get out and see what is new this year, stay tuned.  Loeka have a great new line up for next season; bright colors, new technical features and as always the gear is getting more comfortable and the function is incredible!!!  Not to mention their recycling program.  Closing the loop Loeka have created a program which enables you to upgrade your gear every year without sending your old gear to the landfill.  The concept is simple, bring your old gear back to the store and get a 10% discount to upgrade to the latest style, the store will send your gear back to Loeka to be made into something new.  Here are the first two products in the line.

Every year the number of women at the show has increased and the number of companies that are making gear for the ladies is amazing.  From clothes to bags, bikes to helmets, and everything and anything you can imagine.  Stay tuned for a full review of the Loeka 2013 lineup this week plus an overview of all things Interbike!

With the increase of women in the Industry Spokeswomen has been formed.  An organization for the ladies in the industry to work together to grow our presence in the sport and support the individual endeavors of each and every female working in the industry.  From shop owners to radio stations, clothing companies to racing teams, coaches and so much more.  Last night was the official launch of the organization and it went great.  The women's lounge was packed with ladies inspired to get more women out and having fun on bikes.

Looking for a nice side dish for Ian's stuffed chicken breast I came across the idea for this tasty recipe on the Martha Stuart website of all places .  She was cooking for a large crowd and did not have gluten intolerance issues to deal with so i took a yummy sounding recipe and made a few changes.

Serves 4
Ingredients

1/3 cup gluten free four mix (I used approx two tablespoons of rice flour,1 tablespoon tapioca starch and 1 tablespoon soy flour)
1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 medium zucchini
1/4 medium onion
1 tablespoon Greek-style plain full-fat yogurt (I put in two by mistake, very tasty but required a little added flour)
1 egg, lightly beaten
coconut oil / olive oil for cooking

Directions

In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and 1/8 teaspoon salt; set aside.
Grate onion on the large holes of a box grater into a medium bowl. Transfer grated onion to a piece of cheese cloth. Squeeze excess liquid from onion and discard. Transfer onion to a clean medium bowl. Grate zucchini into bowl with onion on the large holes of a box grater.

Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and toss to combine; let stand 30 seconds.

Transfer zucchini and onion mixture to a clean piece of cheesecloth and cover. Squeeze out as much liquid as possible and discard. Transfer zucchini and onion to a large bowl. Add yogurt and egg; season with salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.
Slowly add 3/4 cup of the flour mixture, while folding it into the zucchini mixture. If mixture seems too wet, fold in 1/4 cup more.
Heat olive oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Working in batches, using about 3 tablespoons of the zucchini mixture, gently form a patty and place in skillet. Cook until fritters are firm and begin to turn golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn fritters and continue to cook about 2 minutes more. Turn fritters again and cook for 30 seconds; transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Repeat process with remaining zucchini mixture, adding more oil as necessary.
Season fritters with salt and serve immediately with yogurt-dill sauce.

I just received an email from Red Bull looking for ladies to step up and conquer the Red Bull Crashed Ice this 2012/2013 season.  They are on the search for fearless female athletes.   Have you heard of Red Bull Crashed Ice?  Check out this video for a crash course!  It is the ultimate in Winter sports and is right up there with crazy things Canadians do with snow and ice:)  I used to think it was crazy!  but after watching it last year it looks like a lot of fun, I just can't skate that well. (that's my excuse anyway).

Women across Canada have braved the monolithic urban ice track since 2010, so we are calling all Betties - are you up to the Challenge?  BettyGoHard would like to sponsor an athlete in the event, so sign up and send us your resume!  Registration is open until September 30th at www.redbullcrashedice.com.
This year’s competition is BIGGER than ever, with two Canadian Final stops! The series will kick off in Niagara Falls, ON on December 1, 2012 against the breathtaking backdrop of one of the world’s largest waterfalls.  Then, the heart-pumping season will come to an epic season finale at the sport’s most iconic stop in the heart of Quebec City, QC on March 16, 2012.
Keen to see more action-packed images and videos? Visit the Red Bull Crashed Ice Newsroom for some great content to get you amped.
