WWR: April 15th

Here’s a look at all of the helmeted and highly visible riders who arrived at HQ last week. After not riding outside all winter–I still had fun getting back on the bike–especially with above zero temps, lingering daylight and dry streets. Looks like we’ll have two out of three of those tempting conditions this Tuesday, so why not put some air in your tires, charge up your batteries, and join us for the WWR!

I’m gonna go out on a limb and state that Spring has arrived!

Time to get outdoors on a bike. What time?  8 p.m. at HQ of course.

Lovin’  the longer hours of daylight, but let’s not get crazy–you still need to ride with lights.

WWR: March 25th

Will there be women riding outside in Altona tonight?

Could these kind of activities take place tonight?  What’s the plan, Cheryl?

Who’s up for a ride tonight?

Indoor/Outdoor

Here’s another way to make cycling an indoor activity: wear your best sweater to the curling rink. I’m quite into curling this year–especially because it’s a winter sport that manages to avoid strong headwinds. I’ve completely given up on trying to cycle outside this winter…I admit, I have been beaten down by the polar vortex. In fact, the last time I ventured outside on my bike was February 4th when Cindy invited WWR participants to come in from the cold and watch cycling–indoors.

We watched cyclocross, we ate chips, we sampled Joanne’s homemade salsa but left her gluten-free beer alone, and Cindy taught me a lot about European geography. Warm good times. Many thanks to Cheryl, Cindy, BikeJo and anyone else who has been keeping the WWR alive on the streets of Altona, even as Manitoba experiences our 2nd coldest winter in 120 years.

No doubt those keeners will be riding outdoors again this Tuesday night (Feb.25th) — meet at HQ at 8 p.m.   … right Cheryl?
