How about that snow, eh? Â About time.
We’ll be having an earlybird draw for a fantastic lightweight insulated jacket donated by our friends at Mountain Equipment Co-op on January 20th. Â If you’re intending on taking part in the bike race but haven’t registered yet, maybe this will motivate you: Â the MEC Uplink Pullover is aÂ stylish super-light technical jacket. The close cut is enhanced by elasticized quilt lines to optimize fit, eliminate air spaces, and allow dynamic motion and long reaches. The DWR-treated shell and PrimaLoftÂ® insulation cope well with mildly damp conditions.
Not only would this jacket fulfill one of the items of mandatory gear for the bike challenge, we suspect having it stowed in your backpack or pannier on a long ride would bring some peace of mind – if the weather turns, you’re ready. That kind of confidence is almost like having an extra gear on your bike.
Sound good? Â If your registration is received before January 20th you have a chance to win this great prize.
A big thank you to MEC for their support of Actif Epica. Â In addition to donating some great prizes, MEC is also providing some treats for your race bags and helping with our course markers. Â If you’re in MEC, please pass on a word of thanks.
