QMFM Wine Tour, trail building, triathalons and other spring news!!
Well its been a busy May so far with a lot of exciting things going on around Osoyoos and Oliver. I had the great fortune to take Arran Henn from QMFM and Global News and her boyfriend Mark out on the beautiful tour offered by us here at Heatstroke Cycle, the GOLDEN MILE WINE COUNTRY TOUR. They had an amazing time and Heatstroke Cycle is being profiled on QMFM with the Watermark Beach Resort as the South Okanagan Wine Country biking destination.
Great news on the local downhill trail. The boys have been hard at work all spring and now it host a plethora of jumps and bridges to add to its fast and hairy rock sections. Big props to Matt Williams for head-manning this project. We all owe you one buddy!! I'll be posting some video on the site once I get my video player uploaded. There is a couple small clips on pinkbike already. Looks like we are going to do shuttle runs on Thursday after the shop closes. If anyone is interested please call Heatstroke Cycle 778 437 2453
Also don't forget about the two local triathlons coming up. The first is the 10th annual Eastlink Half Iron in Oliver BC on June 2nd 2013. Its a great local triathlon that is professionally run by Outback Events out of Vancouver. Make sure to come out and support all the athletes! The second is the Desert Half Iron in Osoyoos also sponsored by Eastlink. This runs on July 7th 2013 and is another wonderful triathlon put on by Outback Events. If you would like more information please go to www.outbackevents.ca and look up both events.
Well that's it for now. Get out there and ride your bike!!!
