Since I was headed over to Vancouver for the 2013 Vancouver Bike Show, I took the opportunity to pay our friends at Mountain Equipment Co-op head office a visit.

Like many of our partners we spend most of our time exchanging emails and chatting over conference calls, but it’s great to be able to meet face to face over lunch or coffee and talk about adventures and topics not laid out in advance.

A big thank you to MEC’s staff Andrew, Community Program Coordinator and Senja, Community and Envoy Program Coordinator for their tremendous help with Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day, and the Your Vote, Your Cause campaign.
