First-annual Wild Goose Chase Mountain Bike Race this Sunday in Gooseberry Park

Besides its natural beauty, there is something perfect and primal about the woods. Many of us spent hours there as kids on our bikes, growing up, risking (and sustaining) injuries. It was a private world that generations of kids blazed through and wore down.

“When I was a kid, it was just us on our BMX bikes,” said Patrick Crary, a board member of Fargo-Moorhead Trailbuilders and a key personality who made…

Manage your stress

In its most instinctual sense the stress response is a way to deal with immediate or pre-imminent danger.

Let’s say a building nearby were about to collapse. The nervous system would respond by dilating the pupils, increasing heart rate and respirations, and shunting blood to the muscles.

The activated hormone system also deals with this immediate stress, pumping cortisol, epinephrine and other hormones into the bloodstream.

How many times in a year do we see that type of imminent…

Feet Wanted: Fargo Streets Come Alive

by Taylor Blumer | .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) | June 3rd, 2015


How do we build a healthier, happier community? Finding an answer to that question is the “high-level” purpose behind Fargo-Moorhead’s annual StreetsAlive! events. The other, perhaps simpler purpose? Giving people a good reason to get outside and have fun.

StreetsAlive! will be held three days this summer – June 14, July 12 and August 30 – and its premise is pretty straightforward: close off a three-mile loop of city streets in Fargo-Moorhead from motorized traffic and…

With just a few days left in the merry month of May (aka National Bike Month), let’s delve into a few specifics of commuting by bicycle.

I’ve chatted with many folks that would love to commute by bike, but often they don’t know where to start. Starting something new means forming a new habit, and that can be tricky. Trial periods are dotted with success and unforeseen challenges. Sometimes harsh judgement from others (or even yourself) can keep you from having the behavior…

Keep rolling: ​Celebrate National Bike Month

by Sara Watson Curry | .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) | May 13th, 2015

By Sara Watson Curry

Since 1956, National Bike Month has had the simple goal of encouraging more Americans to put the fun between their legs. Or, more formally, the goal is to celebrate the unique power of the bicycle and the many reasons we ride.

There certainly is a diverse attraction to the bicycle. People come to them for fitness, recreation, transportation, environmental concerns, affordability, love of the mechanics and more. Regardless of why you choose to pedal, consider marking…

​Nourishment for the body

We've all heard that old saying "you are what you eat.” In the case withthis story, I wanted to talk about the food for the body we call "massage.”

On my last trip to Winnipeg, I was spoiled by having a massage known as hammam.

But first I want to back up and give credit where credit is due. I never heard of this hammam until I met a lady by the name of Beth at a dinner party. She was talking about this specific massage therapy.

I wasn't very interested because I'm not a big massage…
