2012 Joyride 150 Women’s Weekend Feb 4 & 5, 2012
Over 130 women took part in the 2012 Womens Weekend (Feb 4th and 5th, 2012) presented by Joyride 150 Bikepark and the OCA. The weekend targeted women from Ontario who wanted to ride in a fun and relaxed environment.
And fun is what was had by all. The weekend started with some fantastic coach introductions and also a tour of the facility by resident Womens Head Coach, Shannon Bentley. The camp had a number of stations for the ladies to hone in some skills and learn some new techniques, even a station to work on changing a flat tire.. courtesy of Jeff Faulds at Norco bikes.
After a tough morning session the women enjoyed a nice tasty lunch followed by some treats supplied by PowerBar and Clif Bar. PowerBar was in attendance and was fueling the ladies all weekend long. After lunch the camp went into high gear as the speed and fun increased..one of the campers was quoted as saying “I am having so much fun but I am going a bit fast, I am getting dizzy!” – Unknown
After a big Saturday night many of the ladies were a little slow to get moving on Sunday; but after a good warm up and some instructor demonstrations, it was time to improve on what had been taught on Day 1.
Day 2 was a huge success as was the whole weekend. This camp wouldn’t have been possible without the support from the CCA, OCA and especially the Joyride 150 crew for hosting this awesome event.
