'A Purpose Ridden'
Ryan speaks about finding purpose through the world's toughest cycling challenges. His passion on two wheels began at the age of 13, when he and his father embarked on a series of cross-country tours around North America. The Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership valedictorian has since cycled 25,000 km from Alaska to Argentina, become the youngest Canadian to complete the grueling Race Across America, raced 4,418 km of remote mountain terrain on the Tour Divide (twice), and nearly crippled himself on 6 day 20 hour stationary cycling record attempt.
Copies of his new book 'A Purpose Ridden' will be available for signing afterward.

Nutrition Essentials for the Long Ride
Having a nutrition strategy when you’re doing any endurance activity is important. When you’re cycling, it could be life-saving. When you ride, you need to be thinking about you, your fellow riders and the vehicles you’re sharing the road with. There’s really not a lot of room for mistakes and poor fueling can be a hazard. This session will focus on the long ride and some strategies to keep you performing well, and staying safe.
Colleen Parsons has been coaching human beings since 1989. She has helped hundreds of athletes navigate the endless barrage of information around nutrition, training and performance. She is currently guiding women towards cycling with confidence through Princess Pedal Cycling Clinics and Camps. Her background as an IOC Sport Nutritionist, Certified Exercise Physiologist, 14 time marathoner and 6 time Ironman finisher make her a credible consultant in this arena.

The Joys of Winter Cycling
There was a time when cycling in the winter was a pastime reserved for masochists and crazy people. At least, that was the perception. But in recent years, the development of our bikes, our cities and our attitudes has changed all of that. Today, winter cycling holds huge potential for the bike industry and our daily lives, as long as we learn to embrace it.
Tom Babin spent years learning about the developing world of winter cycling as part of the Calgary Herald's Pedal, one of Canada's most popular blogs about cycling. The result of all that work is his book Frostbike: The Joy, Pain and Numbness of Winter Cycling, in which he explores all aspects of year-round cycling, from the types of bikes to our approach to winter to the most bike-friendly winter cities in the world.
Today, Babin speaks about winter cycling all over the world, and will bring his inspiring message to the Calgary Bike Show.
