Mostly retired physiotherapist who is interested in a safe cycling infrastructure in Saskatoon for my grandchildren and other vulnerable cyclists in a city that has the potential to be the best year round cycling city in the world! My bike is an agent of social change. I love travels near and far cycling with my husband. The Trans Canada Trail is my passion for connecting Canadians by active transportation.
Eric is a year-round commuter cyclist, a summer mountain-biker, and summer road-biker. Born and raised in Europe, Eric calls Saskatoon his home since 1993. He considers Saskatoon is the perfect city for biking, but wishes cycling infrastructure would be more developed to the image of some other Canadian or European cities. He is a strong promoter of all cycling activities among his family and friends. Eric believes that a bicycle is a therapy device, a stress control tool, a social life enhancer, as well as an efficient means of locomotion. On a professional level, Eric is a consultant in Community Development, and believes he could bring some of his skills to help promote cycling in Saskatoon. Eric and his wife Laurette are the lucky parents of a 5-boy team, and they host a flock of velocipedes in their garage.
Tania is a relatively new member of the community. Her family moved to Saskatoon in the Fall of 2011 after living in Yellowknife, NT for 6 years. She worked as an engineer in the north before starting her family, and she is currently at home with 3 young children. Limiting the use of their family vehicle is a family value, and walking and biking are always the preferred method to transport her family around the city. She is excited to be involved with Saskatoon Cycle.
My return to Saskatoon two years ago has coincided with a renewed interest in cycling out of sheer enjoyment and the physical fitness that cycling promotes as well as an environmentally friendly means of transportation. I have enjoyed cycling in the city and would like to see if there are ways that I can help others enjoy the same experience.
Originally from Amherstburg, Ontario, with a background in Architectural Design, Ted has relocated to Saskatoon following a suspended career in the automotive industry. During his time in Ontario Ted has served on the local Heritage Planning Committee as well as the Parks Committee. One highlight of this involvement was his initiative of a Bike-to-Work-Month. Along with biking, additional outdoor activities included sailing, rowing and skiing. Now, calling Saskatoon home, Ted is forging ahead on bicycle alone and no longer owns a car. Quality of life, community and the built environment are the main factors that keeps his interest and are all things that are also supported by Saskatoon Cycles.
