In the spring of 2010 a teacher-friend sent me a link to a documentary called Ride the Divide. It was available for viewing on YouTube as part of its release promotion. Out of curiosity, I clicked on the link while enjoying my morning coffee. And found myself in the same position, glued to the computer screen just under an hour and a half later, completely in awe of the people I met throughout. 

Destination of the Month - Swine Flu          
Distance: Approx. 6km
Time: 1-1.5 hr
Difficulty: Blue

Spring is a great time to get out for a hike or trail run. Please be mindful of potentially wet trails. A classic Fernie trail that tends to dry out early is Swine Flu. Many will be “green” with envy of the views you can take in at the top.

The Fernie Trails Alliance continually works to adapt to the changes that the trail users we represent desire and here are some of the examples, of the changes they have made of late.

Day two of the Furious3 three day stage mountain bike race in Fernie, BC!

A few years ago Nic Genovese filmed this video for Tourism Fernie, providing a perfect glimpse of what biking in Fernie means to those that live and visit this community.

Bike season is upon us, and regardless of the time you’ve put in on your trainer or in spin class you will likely experience tight and sore muscles. Here is a list of stretches you can do before and/or after your bike ride to help you prevent injury and recover faster.

These incorporate the use of a bike to aid the stretch, so make sure it is secured against something so it will not fall over. And remember to take your time and that stretching should never hurt.

Spring has sprung in full force the last few weeks, and riding has begun to take shape. When the wet weather hit hard, I had to be creative to get my rides in (I am definitely learning the pros and cons of a mid-May race) and as some of you may know, I am not a fan of roads. Even double track sends me for a loop, so I've been on the hunt for dry singletrack.
