Hi Noelle, I just wanted you to know that Heidi McKee and I both won our age categories at the Horseshoe Valley Centurion 50km yesterday despite and rain and near zero visibility at times. Thanks for all your support and coaching. I was thinking of you yesterday as I made my way through the course-shift early and shift often! And to think that a year ago I couldn’t event make it up Pretty River Road!  I couldn’t have done this without your coaching! Cheryl Sproule

I particpated in a large ride last wknd in a group of 10 riders. I was the only female and felt initially very intimidated but quickly realized the diva clinic had provided me the tools/knowledge to ride safely in a group. I rode with the group both days and suprised the riders (most of them experienced) and myself. I manged to respect the rules of riding in a group (single and double pace line). Thank you for helping me gain confidence with my riding! Johanne Seguin

I  just wanted to say thank you so much for Saturday. Your knowledge and professinalism was outstanding but it was your patience and encouragement that really made the difference. It was truly worth every minute. I learned so much and it has had a real impact on my riding confidence already. Lesley Young
