Best time EVER with these beauties at my first ever Women's Road Cycling Getaway in Muskoka!
There are ‘almost’ no words for all of what I had the pleasure and honour of witnessing. Truly. ❤️
The camaraderie, support, uplifting moments, words of encouragement, laughter, hilarious and deep and meaningful conversations between these amazing women was beautiful.
We got to share our stories over delicious food, bike rides, swimming in the lake (both days – brrrrr), hanging out on the dock all while overlooking the picturesque Muskoka Bay.
We had ALL the Fall weather extremes with thunderstorms, gail force winds, trees down, heat, humidity and threats of thunderstorms one day to being a tad on the chilly side the next day.
We even lost power and Ashleigh, being the resourceful and awesome chef that she is, found a way to finish our delicious dinner.
The food was off the hook. Like I'm talking ... OFF. THE. DAMN. HOOK. as was the yoga, spa treatments and cycling.
AND might I remind you ladies of Judy’s instructions on how to apply chamois cream and Corrina’s oops of a moment … hahaha!
I have so much to be grateful for and so many people to thank!
Thank you to Ashleigh for your insanely delicious creations, Andrew for your awesome mechanical support, getting bikes ready and following us on our routes plus your photography, Ashley for your amazing and thought provoking yoga, Jenn for your incredibly relaxing spa treatments performed right at our lakehouse, Melinda of Stamped Frosting Custom Hand Stamped Jewelry for the beautiful personalized handmade bracelets I gifted to all of the women, Jeremy of Trek Bicycle Store Barrie for the Trek Bicycle, Bontrager, CLIF Barand Chamois Butt'r swag, Riverwalk Restaurant for a delicious post-ride lunch, Ecclestone Cycle for your knowledge and great service as the women shopped to prepare for a chilly ride AND …
To all of you gorgeous women that participated in the Getaway. I'm so grateful to have spent so much quality time and making memories with each and every one of you. Thank you! I will cherish this for forever.
When to change your tires
There's no better time to do a once over on your bike and check a few things out than the present.
It might be that you live in the Great White North like me where our season is winding down and you're about to spend some serious time riding indoors OR you could be living somewhere that you can ride year round.
Either way this video is for YOU.
In my video this week, I ask a few pertinent questions like:
✨ When was the last time you changed your tires?
✨ Do you remember the last time you changed your tires?
✨ Have you EVER changed them?
✨ Did you buy your bike used so not sure when they were last changed?
✨ AND do you know how to recognize whether it's time to get some new ones?
I go over all of this in my video including the general rule of thumb AND there are a couple of funny stories on what happened to me when I was a rookie-ish rider.
When I tell ya I had no one to show me the ropes, I'm totally not kidding!
OH AND IT'S BACK!
The best coached indoor virtual cycling program EVER with me as your coach and new this year are TWO LEVELS, all done from the comfort of your home.
So I want you to...
Imagine riding your bike up hills on your first ride of the season and not having jelly legs after. Win!
Imagine being so far ahead of your goals that your strength, speed and skills on the bike are at a new all time high.
Imagine knowing what it's like to fuel and recover like an athlete and feel endless amounts of energy both on the bike and in life.
You MUST be training and cross training those cycling specific muscles.

YOU CANNOT OUT TRAIN A BAD DIET.
