Life works in mysterious ways! I had every intention of infusing lot's of energy into transforming my mountain bike school into a marathon speed skating and skate skiing school this winter, but my plans were de-routed by an offer I could not resist: coordinate the winter trail patrol team in the Gatineau Park for Services récréatifs Demsis.
After 6 solid year on the canal, leading the skate patrol, I felt ready for the challenge. The Gatineau park is a vast territory compared to the 7.8 km length of the skateway. So, on this note, I am still available for coaching, but on a smaller scale. An email or a call is the best way to reach me: 819.230.8906 as the Centre's telephone number gets temporary suspended in the winter.
As for 2017, my creative wheels have been spinning madly yet again as I really want to complete the therapy trail on the land. Stay tune for special projects that I will be needing assistance with. I can promise you one hell of a great workout...LaRoccaXC will be celebrating its 20th anniversary, along with Canada's 150th...so, I intend to put this year on the map.
Note that Joanne and I are working a simplifying the website and turning to Facebook offerings to keep everyone informed. Trust me, I don't have any intention of tweeting, texting, hash tagging, instagramming anytime soon, but, Facebook has its advantages in the building of communities.
