LiveSplendidly! Where Princess Pedal comes to roost.


I don’t know where the summer is going but it’s almost September and I simply can’t believe it.  I hope your summer is going well and you’re enjoying some terrific activity in the great outdoors.

Princess Pedal Camps went very well again this year.  We tested a new route or two and with Penticton and area having seen some new pavement – the rides were all spectacular.  The 2019 dates have been set, the house is booked and it’s time to commit if you have been thinking about coming to Princess Pedal Camp.  I understand that there are many past Princesses planning to attend – so spots are limited.

These camps are a terrific way to get some early season rides into your schedule – whether you’re planning a summer in Europe on a bike tour or, simply looking for a super-active retreat.  They are non-competitive and a wonderful way to enjoy a week with a bunch of gals.

Camp #1 May 26 – June 1st.                         Camp #2 June 2 – June 8th.

Six nights; 5 riders; coaching and guided rides; delicious home cooked food; 2 private yoga sessions; lots of rides… plenty of laughs.  Register early and I’ll send you winter workouts as part of your registration – to help you get ready for the week. The info sheet with more detail is on my website.

Investment: $1999 + GST.  A $525 deposit secures your spot.  Full payment due April 1, 2019.  A wonderful Christmas (birthday, Mother’s day) Gift (for someone special – just sayin’).

Princess Pedal Team events

We had quite a crew at the Badlands Gran Fondo in Drumheller this year.  The weather looked like it might not cooperate but in the end, 20 minutes before start time, the rain stopped and we couldn’t have asked for a better day.  The Event Directors did a wonderful job of pulling together another terrific event and a good time was had by all.

Group rides are being posted approximately 2 weekends per month.  Join us for a Sunday ride if it works for you.  We encourage you to bring your friends and family (boys are welcome) for these.  The pace is reasonable and we do our best to not ‘lose’ anyone along the way.  All rides will be posted on Team Snap – so let me know if you would like your name to be added to the list.

Other events coming up

Revive Wellness Retreat will be hosted at Camp Kindle in Water Valley again this year and registrations are rolling in. This event is in support of You, Kids Cancer Care and Camp Kindle.  Join us for the most fun you’ve had – being a kid – in years.

Picture this: 25 ladies, private and shared dorm rooms (to share with your bestie, mom or daughter), campfire songs, hiking, high ropes, an escape room, time to relax, time to have fun.  Arrive Friday, leave Sunday.  All meals included but there’s room to bring your favourite snacks and big-girl beverages.  Bring your sleeping bag, pillow, favourite camping ‘outfits’ and join us for a great getaway weekend.
