I’m very much a ‘cat’s KAT’. Rather than travelling in a pack, I have found that I prefer practising the art of ‘solitary refinement’ and riding on my own. Although I do appreciate the pleasures of joining in a charity ride or occasionally travelling with a group, I pretty much keep to myself when it comes to my time on the road.
With that being said, this particular adventure was too good of an opportunity to pass up. After all, how can you turn down something with the word ‘wicked’ in the title?
Cathy Bieman, Perth County diva extraordinaire and General Manager of the Perth County Visitors Association, has an enthusiasm that is infectious and a love of both riding and of Perth County. Put all three together and you get The Wicked Ride, a ladies only event and brainchild of Cathy’s that celebrated its fifth anniversary this summer. “It keeps getting bigger as women spread the word about what a blast it is to share the experience,” Cathy volunteered as she surveyed the registration area on the day of the event in August. “This is one ride that is going to have a long history and a wonderful legacy.”
