Spring Bike Ride

Roxbury Rides & YP Fit

Roxbury Rides first ride of the season in collaboration with YPFit. I always stress over my events, did I do this, did I do that? This event stressed me out for various reasons, but once we took off and rode, seeing the fun everyone had, the smiles and the sense of accomplishment from our riders immediately wiped away any stress that was there.

I appreciated everyone who comes out and rides!!!
THIS is why I do what I do!

You can't be sad when riding a bicycle!
Season Opening Hike with Hike4Life & YPFit!
Tired and Speechless but I have so much to say about today's Season Opening Hike! We had a great turn out (37) and yeah, we hiked, a lot! Thank you to YPFIT, thank you to everyone that came out to support Hike4Life today. Great to meet new people and spend time with some really strong young little people! 
Shout out to my fellow YPFit Leaders, Michelle Cook of Roxbury Rides and Elizabeth Syndey-Walker (YP Fit Zumba). I am so proud of the effort and hard work that everyone put in on the trail today. We really kicked off the season!!!

2018 Warm Up Hike w/ Hike4Life

The Hike4Life Warm up Hike was so awesome! We had a wonderful group of 15 excited, fun and adventurous hikers that pushed us to see the snow-covered Arboretum in all of its winter beauty! We walked up Bussey Hill and took in the view of the Blue Hills & trudged up Peter's Hill in the snow! Everyone enjoyed themselves and we met some awesome new people. Thanks for coming out today and spending time with us.
