Bike Rally Expo! @ PWA
Apr 14 @ 10:30 am – 3:00 pm

A one day event to check off some of those required seminars: the First Year Orientation and the Flat Fix Seminar. There will also be a speaker from HEAL Nutrition to talk about how you should manage your diet as you increase your training, as well as what to eat and drink on the bike. The First Year Orientation and Flat Fix Seminars will be run twice each, at 10:45 and 12:30, and the Nutrition Seminar at 2pm. This will also be an opportunity for riders to try on the jerseys to make sure you get the sizing right. This all goes down at PWA at 200 Gerrard Street East on Saturday, April 14.

Convo with a Chiro @ Toronto PWA Foundation
May 30 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

6:30pm – 8:00pm

Endurance training is a vital aspect of your Bike Rally preparation, as well as a great way to stay active. But sometimes it can cause muscular imbalances that may lead to aches and pains, or worse, a full-blown injury. During this interactive session, Dr. Donald Littlewood will speak to the common issues he’s treated on the Bike Rally, and offer some great suggestions for injury prevention and conditioning.

Proactive injury prevention is a commonly overlooked aspect of training, and it applies equally to first-time participants and veterans. Be sure to attend this valuable seminar as a way to support and enhance your Bike Rally training!

Dr. Donald is a chiropractor and acupuncturist practicing in downtown Toronto. He has been a Bike Rally Wellness Crew volunteer twice (2016 and 2017), the first time as a member of the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College Team (CMCC) providing care to riders and crew.
