~~This section exists as a courtesy to our friends up north, to help promote the wonderful sport of skibiking in the second largest country in the world. ~~We would highly encourage the formation of a separate Canadian organization, logistics dictate that it would be the most efficient and effective way to propagate the sport. ~~ Canadian riders, this page belongs to you. I'm willing to put in the time and effort to publish materials here, but you are the prime source. Please submit testimonials, articles, personal stories, correspondence, links, skibike items for sale, editorials, reviews, photos etc for publication on this site.. A major priority is any information regarding ski area access!! ~~"Profiles" of Canadian riders will be published here as well as in the main "Profiles" pages. I would highly encourage the inclusion of your e-mail address, networking requires communication, and grass-roots networking is key to advancing the sport. If necessary, I will forward addresses upon request.
