It’s official – spring is here! Yes, it’s April 1, but I’m not fooling around.
Now that temperatures are rising, I’m excited about the months ahead – and exploring The Great Trail of Canada on two wheels! This month, I’m reading about a cross-Canada cyclist who discovered some much-needed peace along the Trail in Ontario. I’m also looking west to Saskatoon’s beautiful Meewasin Trail for vacation ideas.
I’m including some inspiring words from Indigenous athlete and cyclist Adrian Alphonso, a Trails Manitoba board member and passionate advocate for inclusivity and “getting everyone to the trailhead”.
