Winter Riding

Posted by Sheila Joy on November 13, 2013

So I thought riding season was over! But I guess some of you would say “no” you just have to be prepared. I found a couple of interesting articles on the topic I wanted to share. The first one is from BikeRadar.

Prepare a road bike for winter riding

This next article is from Forbes and is just a fun thought on a Christmas gift!

Cyclists & Winter Make ‘Snow Bike’ The Perfect Holiday Gift

The last article I am sharing goes to show you that you can bike in the winter if you want to…people are biking during the winter in Minnesota!

You CAN bike in the winter

If you choose to ride or do an indoor spin class…have fun and stay in shape…spring is coming!! 🙂

Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation

Posted by Sheila Joy on August 5, 2013

My name is Ryan Cotton and I want to raise awareness of our event scheduled for August 11th. We are staging a charity Bike Tour consisting on a 62 mile and 15 mile loop in aid of the JDRF. The JDRF is the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation works towards supporting families living with type 1 diabetes and also helping to find a cure. We hope to be able to provide a useful sum, generated from registration fees and pledged donations collected by riders, to help aid the JDRF in their continuing work.
This is a charity event that serves the needs of people in your clubs. The route can be found here:
Please feel free to give us any feedback and advice. Contact us as a reply to this email or visit us at:

Thank you,

Ryan Cotton
