Video: An Ode To Fall with Jo Peters in Kelowna, BC

Sep 30, 2020
by Norco Bicycles  

Anyone who rides knows how, at any given moment on a ride, a sound, a smell, even a taste can carry you off to another time and place. You’re still riding in the moment – but your subconscious is diving deep in the background, celebrating victories, lamenting regrets, and re-tracing the tracks that have brought you to where you are and who you’ve become.

No other time of year has a sensory connection as poignant as Autumn. The symbolic cascade and decay of the Summer’s leaves, the dark, damp trails, the mud splattering up your back and in your face – it binds you to rides gone by. Every Fall, you’re drawn back to your favourite trails again and again before the weather turns, because you’re afraid it could be the year’s last ride.

Jo Peters, Norco Women’s Ambassador and ever-present member of the Sea to Sky riding community, muses on her life’s journey while communing with Kelowna trails aboard her Optic.

 Lovely to see Jo Peters creative skills meet her bike skills on camera. I can relate to the sentiment for sure. Fall always takes me back to the sheer joy of riding my bike, well said Jo!
