Cowichan Challenge Triathlon: So this would be fun... head out and cheer... or better yet participate, in the Cowichan Challenge Triathlon on July 14th. This much anticipated yearly grassroots event inspires people from all over the valley to get up off their couches and swim, cycle and run for months ahead of the big day. Often doing all three on the same training day... crazy people you say? Nay say I. They're athletes and they're awesome.
Here's a smart law. Wearing a helmet is mandatory while riding a bicycle in British Columbia. In 1996, BC became the first province or state in North America to make the wearing of certified helmets mandatory for all riders.
