That time of year in Rossland to get active

Being in recovery from an injury, I just got out for my first mountain bike ride yesterday.

Being in recovery from an injury, I just got out for my first mountain bike ride yesterday. It has been really hard listening to everyone talk about being out on their bikes when I could not. I felt like I was not part of the cool club and I was missing out.

Talking with a friend just the other day she mentioned off hand that she had been out mountain biking, this particular friend does not bike a lot and it made me think of how we humans work.  Isn’t it great to be part of something, be able to participate in conversations with others, whether it is the latest tv commercial or the most popular trail in town.

The best thing is that you only have to do it or see it once to be part of the conversation. The payoff to participation is the feeling of confidence that you did it and knowledge that you can do it.

BettyGoHard is all about getting people active; we wanted to create a place where females of all levels could safely step out of their comfort zones and have the confidence to get moving. As our programs have grown we have acknowledged that it is not just the ladies looking for inspiration and confidence.

So this year we have expanded offering our programs to the guys and also the up and coming pros of the next generation.

BettyGoHard is for you.  If you are looking to start biking for the first time, learn new trails, find others to bike with or just a good excuse to go for a weekly ride we have something for you.

Our introduction clinics start with the basics of your bike and work into your fundamental skills, perfect if you have not ridden off road before or are looking for skills to have more fun on the trails.  The beginner biking and chocolate will help you work on your skills, get more confidence and wind down with chocolate at the end of the trail.

In addition check out our Intermediate Downhill Biking and Chocolate series, co-ed Cross Country rides for beginners & intermediate riders.

Additionally, we are offering Progression Sessions to get you confident hitting the features in the park and out on the trail.  Not to mention all of our kids after school programs and summer camps.

Not into biking? Check out our Hiking and Yoga series; join us for a Sunday afternoon that will leave you refreshed, limber and ready to take on your week.  We will head up a favorite local trail with Kerry Yoga leading us through a 30 min yoga session at the top and meandering back down for après at the bottom.

For all our programs please check out the website at www.bettygohard.com.

Be part of the action this summer, get the skills you need to be confident and have fun.
