Meet the Club – Danielle Anstess

Meet Danielle! She’s a Director at Large for the SCC and does amazing work sharing her passion for cycling in our community. She’s gotten so many women of all ages and skill levels out riding the trails! 👏🏻

Thank you for all of the hard work and time you dedicate to doing this!!

Name: Danielle Anstess
Position: Director at Large

I have been involved with the Sault Cycling Club for two years as a Director at Large.

I am a cycling advocate and I enjoy sharing my passion for bikes with anyone who will listen. I coach women of all ages and backgrounds at the Titty Tuesday mountain bike rides along with at the Copper Harbor women’s weekend. I recently became a women’s ambassador for Norco.

I ride my bike for transportation as well as for pleasure. Riding a bike has built both my confidence and fitness. I like to ride trail, gravel, and maybe even a little road to get somewhere.

I look forward to seeing you out there!

Trail Maintenance Day!

Thanks to many eager volunteers, a lot of great things have been going on this year!!! If you are interested in volunteering to help out this weekend, here are the details:

‪DATE: Saturday, August 1st ‬
‪TIME: ‬8 AM to 12 PM
WHERE: Work area is a walk in off the end of Fish Hatchery Road (head up the trail and the work will be taking place just past the start of Rabbit Run). If you’re unsure of where this is and want to help out, send us a message!

Our Trail Director (Peter Henry), will be on site coordinating things! We’ll be building a berm leading into the new alignment and digging up/revegetating the old alignment. If you have a spade handy, bring one with you to help transplant some trees!

Social distancing rules will be followed during the work!

Meet the Club – Communications Director, Cindy Pruce

Hi! I’m Cindy 🙂 I took over as the SCC’s Communications Director this past spring. I look forward to continually providing you with updates and information on what’s going on in our cycling community.

Born and raised in SSM, I moved away for a short period of time for my education returning in 2007. The Sault has everything an outdoor enthusiast could want within a short drive, so I knew I wouldn’t stay away long.

I work at our local utility, PUC Services Inc. as the Operations Assistant and am the chair of our Employees Association and Safety Awareness Team. I love organizing events and getting people involved.

I’m the mom of an amazing 2.5 year old girl and am working hard to share my passion of cycling with her. (She’s loving it so far!)

I started biking in my early twenties when I was looking for a new summer outdoor activity. Biking has made a big impact on my life and changed who I am for the better. It made me a more confident and strong person. I’ve met so many amazing people along the way that I never would have crossed paths with otherwise.

My favourite type of biking is Mountain biking! I love the thrill of going fast, winding through the trees along flow trails and riding downhill.

I joined the Sault Cycling Club Executive earlier this year. I’m excited to help spread my love for biking and get more people of all ages and skill levels out riding the trails! Not only is it fun, you get to explore the outdoors, it’s great exercise, good for your mental health and can lead to building confidence that you never knew you had.

See you on the trails! ❤️🙌🏻

Meet the Club! Touring Director, Dave Kochanowski

Meet Dave! He’s the club’s new touring director and we’re happy to have him as part of the team!🙌🏻

Name: Dave Kochanowski
Position Title: Touring Director

I ventured into the bike world a few years ago as it fit well with a 2 child, 2 shift worker house. I found I could ride day or night, weekday or weekend, solo or not. The Sault offers many different types of riding right in our own backyard.

I joined the Sault Cycling Club Executive to gain a better understanding of cycling in our community and what the vision for the future was. I strongly believe that getting both the young and old involved in cycling will have a great positive impact on the individual and on our community.

I hope to share the touring world with people from all skill levels and help them enjoy it!
