Healthy Riding

columnist David PocockWe, as a community, will talk endlessly about our bikes and how we keep then running and or improve the way they handle / run / perform . . . but how often do we do the same for ourselves?  How often, as we go on this or that run, do we really look at what we do for ourselves?  Think about it, do we always make sure we get enough sleep before we head out on a long ride to, or from a given event?  Do we make sure we eat enough to balance out against the rigours of the ride, do we take in enough fluids (not beer / whiskey / wine)?  Many of us are now, I’m sorry to point it out, no longer under 30 or even 40 and all of this will and does take it’s toll.

On June 23, 2013 the Canadian Oilfield Rider’s held the 25th anniversary ride in support of the Children’s Wish foundation – which brought out almost 200 riders. The day started with registration and a pancake breakfast at Chestermere Lake – followed by a ride through scenic east central Alberta and ending at the Wayne Community Campground in the beautiful badlands east of Drumheller.

Nothing happens for no reason

Columnist David PocockThe saying goes that, “Nothing happens for no reason.”  I had a real life example of this I’d like to share with you folk.  As some of you know, Southern Alberta is coming out of winter in fits and starts, and today was warm enough that the ice in the ally behind my garage had melted enough that I could safely ride out to the street.

David PocockTouring / travelling / camping season is coming!!  Are you ready?  What do you take with you to eat, how do you cook it?  How much and what to pack, has always got to be weighed against concerns of how much space we have and the kinds of facilities we will be using.  If you’re going to be using motels, then packing food might be limited to snack foods for the occasional rest stop. If you are going to be camping, then decide how much and what you carry, based on where you will camp and if there are known facilities for buying food or other supplies.
