I’m not sure exactly when I started drinking coffee outside with these crazy humans but I started marking it on my calendar in April/2015. I was a summer cyclist at that time and I was just starting to heal from my second fracture out of 3 in 10 months. I was curious about meeting other cyclists to drink coffee outside. Being part of this little community has changed my life for the better in so many ways! Sometimes I’m alone in the dark but sometimes, I’m almost crying with laughter!
Sometimes, we meet for a Friday beer and a lot of laughter.
Doc Darren got a pizza oven that he could bring by bicycle so we had breakfast pizza outside one wintry morning!
Sometimes, we meet on the southside to accommodate cyclists from the other side of the North Saskatchewan.
This community has so much diversity and zest for life. Once two or more of us are gathered, the passionate discussions begin. It’s astonishing how much ground you can cover in a half hour or so, early Friday morning. Hanging out with our crazy bike gang has motivated me to become a winter cyclist on all but the very worst days. Various members have enjoyed winter and summer bike races of various kinds. A couple of us share a canoe. Our age and career range is pretty wide. If you have the opportunity to join a magical little community like this, grab it with both hands!!
If you are taking the academic IELTS exam, one of your writing tasks involves interpreting information on a table, a chart, or a graph. If you don’t have experience with this, it can be quite difficult. I recommend that you look at charts or graphs every few days, about subjects that interest you, in order to practice this writing exercise. This page has a lot of information from research, and some of it is presented in graph form. See what you learn by looking it over.
