New bike season has started!

Our legs are getting use to indoor cycling on the trainer, and our arms are getting used to uphill motion for skiing and snowshoeing propulsion. Speaking of winter propulsion... the winter season for quebec outdoor fun has begun.

This is NOT the off-season! This is the season of plenty of super fun outdoor activities involving snow and ice.

Winter fun activities include:
  • Skiing cross country
  • Skiing downhill
  • Snowshoeing
  • Ice skating - outdoor rink
  • Ice skating - on lake/river
  • Ice climbing
  • Alpine snowboard
  • Regular snowboard
  • Ski jumping
  • Ice fishing
  • Sliding and sledding downhill

If you never skied or skated or snowshoes before, try snowshoeing first, and do it with poles for balance and propulsion. It's easy to do and the uphill direction on Mont Royal is a great place to do it.

Especially in a snow storm.

And there's curling on TV for when you are inside.
