And the Wheels Just Keep on Spinning

Share |
Juin, 2007

The Rocky Mountain and Sunshine Coast Tour are on the loose and this group of super fit, high-spirited bikers are rocking BC to its core with the hope-filled goodness of Otesha. With both tours blasting up hills, summits, jamming out in pink momma earth dresses and producing stylin’ workout videos, there’s nothing Otesha can’t do! These two awesome tours are almost over, but do not fear all you hopeful Otesha enthusiasts. The East Coast and Maritimes Tour will soon be here! 30 passion filled youth from all over Canada and Australia will be packing their panniers and heading for Halifax to begin Otesha’s first ever car-free tours. And the craziness does not stop there! Here at Otesha Central, we’ve finally built the first ever, highly anticipated Otesha Solar Oven. And with Otesha UK starting up and the Lake Superior Tour still to come, the wheels of this Otesha revolution just won’t stop spinning!
