Nine of us traveled to Whitefish for a biking bachelorette weekend this past weekend and I was the only one who didn’t bike. It wasn’t a hard decision for me as I still have no feeling in most of my foot and if I do too much my leg gets super achy and I’m just a little tired of achy. So I stayed back and did some swimming and hot tubbing and a bit of walking, which was really good because I’m supposed to be walking on an incline, good for the stiffness, and I haven’t been.
I’m okay with being the oddball in a group. I’m getting good at being that person. I like that everyone has accepted this part of me. I had no grief for it, although I had a great excuse, but I feel as though if I had not broken my leg this wonderful group of bike crazy women would have been very cool with me not participating (to my face). I love that.

(from 2014’s Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam)
The Wam Bam Dirt Jump Jam is an exciting event to see, especially for my little ones who are just starting to play at the bike park. On top of the big Saturday event there’s also a Qualifying/causal jam on Friday night from 7-9. Saturday night kicks off around 5 pm and goes on until after 10.
From the ferniebike.ca website:
“Jump off the Fernie Dirt Jump Park, a ton of crazy bikers on jump bikes with big lights, big sounds and lots of excitement!
The WAM BAM dirt jump jam is an FMB (Freeride Mountain Biking) World Tour bronze event hosted by the FMBC (Fernie Mountain Bike Club). Look out for big air, crazy stunts, twists, turns and wipeouts! It’s a day and night of great entertainment and competition at the Dirt Jump Park next to the Fernie Aquatic Centre.
Kids and novice welcome for daytime fun and competition. Pro comps are under the evening lights!
