The Victoria Cycling Academy gathered outside Trek Bike Shop last week before a morning ride to accept half of the total $1,179.77 raised at the local film premiere of Life Cycles at Parkside in January.
The Victoria Cycling Academy is a junior-specific training centre for young up-and-coming cyclists. Head coach Steve Lund and team members helped run the sold-out fundraiser held at Parkside's HD movie theatre, taking tickets and ushering guests.
February 14th doesn't have to be about cards, flowers and chocolate—in the traditional sense, anyway.
Why not spend this Valentine's Day connecting with a loved one (or just yourself—"me" time is just as important!) in pure bliss at the spa?
AquaTerre Spa at Parkside is offering up a selection of Valentine's Day packages for both couples and singles alike. So instead of giving a traditional card and a box of chocolates this Valentine's Day, why not buy your sweetheart (or yourself) a gift card at AquaTerre for a Chocolate Massage? It's just as divine—and calorie-free!
