The name "Tree Huggers" describes our team's
single track biking technique. You'll recognize us on the trail when
you see Richard's Recumbent
Mountain Bike- one of the few in existence.
We're a group of
longtime friends, including a married couple - weekend warriors who
share a sense of humour and an amazing natural talent for purchasing
outdoor gear. When asked about our athletic experience, we tend to
change the subject.
It's been five
years now since we were wandering in swampy circles at our first race
(dnf @ ARC Muskoka), but we've improved since then and have been
on the podium regularly.
