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.
OurFernie.com’s buy and sell section is not as cheap as I’d expect/like it to be. It feels like it’s getting harder and harder to find good deals in there…used beds for 500 dollars? bike rack for $150? It’s probably my own fault, thinking these pages of items for sale should be more like a yard sale…
“$0.50 for this book? I’ll give you $0.25.”…. “sold.”
I’m looking forward to summer yard sales.
Deal of the week today is the “Cheap bike“, without a picture, for $20.
“I’ll give you $10.”
A race that’s half on foot (12.5 km) and half on a bike (13.5 km). WOAH. I, personally, need about a year to prepare for this but you probably don’t. Go to www.fernietearsandgears.com to sign up or offer some of your time to help at the event. The 1st Tears and Gears will take place on September 12th, 2010.
It feels early but F.A.R.’s official last day is August 29th with a bonus weekend on September 4th to 6th.
The Fernie & District Historical Society and the Fernie Mountain Bike Club are doing a bicycle exhibit to be displayed in conjunction with the Trans Rockies this year. We are looking for artifacts to display… See the rest.
