Words and pictures by Melanie Chambers - Liv Ambassador
Driving into downtown Winnipeg is a labyrinth of one way streets and construction detours – I swear we passed the same building three times before reaching our final destination. Pulling into Sergeant Taco Shop, the line-up goes outside the door and around the corner—must be good. We scoffed down pre-ride tacos (Hmm, refried beans... maybe not the best cuisine choice before riding?) and made our way to the ‘mountain.’
I emailed Emily from the Bikes and Beyond shop weeks ago. A fellow Liv ambassador, she created a beautiful poster for my arrival and rounded up some ladies of all levels. In the parking lot, Emily gravitated toward my pup Farley immediately; rolling around on the pavement with him, the two of them play like best friends. Emily is a gem--no wonder she can round up such a diverse group of riders. She exudes warmth.
