As this unforgettable year draws to a close, I would like to thank each and every one of you whom I met this year or with whom I reconnected after a few years absent from this community.
It’s been a challenging year for all of us.
Having spent the first few months of this year working at the front lines of a pandemic and living and working in the communities affected by the tragedy in April, being welcomed back into this vibrant community of active and fun-loving people made an indescribably significant difference in my life. I hope the enthusiasm you witness each time I see you all can make up for the words which are insufficient.
Each ride or event this year was memorable, from my reintroduction at the Railyard on June 13th, to the first group ride at Empire, to the valley rides, the cottage event, the corn maze (who could forget!), to the Be Rad and Meridian PEI extravaganza and Strathganza, Tour de Gore, the Fitz ride in a heat warning, the clinic then very special day at Keppoch (also not to be soon forgotten!), to every group ride (small or rather large!)
Wishing you all the happiest of holiday seasons and extending a virtual toast to the new adventures awaiting us in 2021.
All the best,
@SQUATCH, @smithers, @plushrush, @JeffV, @Jetter, @Rolls, @darkmyth, @riderx, @tommyboy, @Pepperjester, @Stumpjumper, @IanMHFX, @TamBan, @Nicole, @MTBA, @MikeRobertson, @murrdogg, @tossedsalad, @dbar, @D_King, @caustin, @camurray, @sheldonmcq, @Joanna, @Rockhopper
