Anabel Meade

abc

Anabel Meade goes by Anabel but those who ride with her have nicknamed her ‘Velcro-girl’. If it looks like she’s about to get dropped, she will work really hard to latch onto your back wheel and hold on for dear life!

Her love for cycling began as a young girl. Her favourite bike was her brother’s hand-me-down, bright yellow ccm 10 speed. It was her first road bike, she loved the thrill of the speed and the freedom she felt while cycling. She also soon discovered that lots of boys like bikes too. It was a no brainer, she was hooked.

Fast forward – to a husband, career and 3 children later she rediscovered her love for cycling 8 years ago. Her kids were at an age where she could leave them for a couple of hours at a time. So she bought a road bike and joined a cycling club and woohoo!

For her cycling is about 3 things: 1) the people – she has met the most amazing people through cycling. She love, love, loves club and group rides. She loves the comraderie. 2) The physical challenge – she really enjoys the work out, on and off season. She is also a bit of a data junkie! 3) The adventure – she loves discovering new routes, country rides and the occasional race as a ‘serious rider’.

Favourites: Cheat food – white wine and green tea ice cream Snack while riding – banana, dates, or fig newtons Workout music – nothing depressing please! Her music choices are pretty eclectic but it has to be loud, have a beat, and an attitude. 50 cent, Usher, AC/DC, Jay Z, Nicki Minaj, The Cure, The National just to name a few. Quote – “If it’s important to you, you’ll find a way. If its not, you’ll find an excuse.” #ComeRideWithUs

He’s also a certified personal trainer and was a pro MTB mechanic on the NORBA circuit in 1998 and 1999.

Hélène Barrette

Read this and tell me you aren’t inspired to jump on a bike! Hélène Barrette goes by “Helen”, not “Heleeen”, or “Elaine She’s a huge cycling fan who began as an armchair cyclist watching the Tour De France, then became “someone who rides a bike”, and finally joined the ranks of “cyclists” a couple of years ago. Her encouraging words are “Believe me: if I can do it, anyone can!” She loves to travel – the greater the adventure the better. If she can ride her bike, ski, hike, scuba dive or climb mountains (on wheels or two feet!) on a trip, it’s a great trip. If she can do any of those things while practicing a foreign language, eating exotic foods, and learning about other cultures, it’s an AMAZING trip. Riding her bike over some famous climbs of the Dolomites and the Alps in 2013 was a dream come true, and she plan on doing that again in the future. For non-racers like her, having a goal such as training for a challenging cycling trip is a wonderful motivator to get on the bike and get some miles into your legs. No need to go so far for beautiful rides, though: Muskoka, the Niagara wine region, the Collingwood area, and Milton and the Escarpment certainly serve up beautiful scenery, great roads, and challenging climbs. Time on the trainer is best spent in the company of good friends at Gears RDP. Failing that, listening to audiobooks is a good way to keep her brain from focusing on the pain. And the occasional loud rendition of “This Girl is on Fire!!!” never fails to make her pedal with more energy. Finally, her favourite quote, from Jim Whittaker (first American to summit Everest): "If you aren't living on the edge, you're taking up too much space. It has nothing to do with thrill-seeking. It's about making the most of every moment, about stretching your own boundaries, about being willing to learn constantly…” See you on the bike! #ComeRideWithUs helen
