We need people just like you to keep this initiative moving. We are looking for capable people to peddle our clients around and help them feel the wind in their hair again. You don’t have to be a high performance athlete, but ready to have fun with all kinds of people.


Let’s go for a ride! If you’re finding it tricky to get outside in the Fernie area, contact us! You are able to go alone, or bring a friend or care-giver along, we want to hear from you!
