Sheryl’s Birkie

February 27, 2007 · Print This Article

Well, Barb, the Prez has asked for an update on what the “Snow Bellas” did over Birkie weekend. HAD A GREAT TIME! That’s all. They ended up shortening the course to less than half the distance- and only timed the Elite racers. Surprisingly, Velo Bella Maria Stewart was not allowed to compete in the elite wave (she was very magnanimous about it, considering it was really unjust- as she has been skiing SO WELL lately and on the podium so many times!) So she skied out there with the masses- which includes the rest of us, like Lori D., Laurel S. (were you out there?) and myself. Hope I didn’t forget anyone!
As you can well imagine, I myself spent most of my time chatting during the “tour” and getting to know some Birchwood gals who ski, and inflicting “Ole and Lena” jokes to anyone who tried to pass me on the hills. I do think I was successful in communicating to the Birchwood Betties that Velo Bella is THE PLACE to be and we are always welcoming here in the pink and electric blue. So, stay tuned… 😉

Otherwise, we are just so happy to have snow and good health! See attached photo of Birkie finish line smile….
Until the trainer ride then! Allez allez!

This fabulous post was written by one of our awesome bella volunteers ~ Sabine is the cofounder of Velo Bella and if you like this report, you can thank her with brownies and beer.

    I’ve seen those Birchwood girls out skiing. How come they can have a ski team and we don’t?

Got something to say?
