Ride with Me Series – Beginner to Intermediate Bike Ride w/Stephanie Chow


Stephanie is the Sustainability Coordinator at the Forks on Treaty One Land, the junction of the two rivers and a meeting place of cultures and economies for over 6,000 years.  I love riding bikes in beautiful spaces to connect with nature and the history of a region.  I worked as a Trek Travel guide where I led cycling experiences all over the world, so it’s fun to bring that same passion to the place I work.  Join me on a bike ride in around the Forks site, learn about the pathways, their contribution to Target Zero and the stories they share.
Let’s do the Tache Loop with some stopping points, then through Niizhoziibean –  all protected pathways (mostly shared with pedestrians).  Some small hills included along the river paths.

These rides are for everyone and are particularly well suited for the beginner rider who may benefit from a bit of coaching. Along with a special guest and destination, each ride will include a cycling instructor to offer tips and tricks and make sure you are comfortable. Not sure the rules of the road? Wanna learn more about a kind of riding? Don’t know the best routes? Join us for a fun way to get familiar. If you can pedal and stop, why not take it to the next level and go for a ride?

Consider this an intermediate bicycle lesson disguised in a little adventure.

Q. I don’t have a bicycle, can I participate?

A. Yes please! We have bicycles, cargo trikes, tandems, and handcycles available at the starting location for rent by donation.

Q. I can pedal but not confidently. Can I participate?

A. Yes! We will go slow and make sure everyone is comfortable. We will take breaks and keep the distances short. A coach will be along for the ride to offer tips. This is how you can learn.

Q. I have a bike but it needs minor repair/adjustment.

A. Bring it to us, if it is a simple repair/adjustment we will help you on the spot, if a major adjustment we can take a look at it but bring it in early or rent one of ours while your bike gets looked at.
