- Beautiful Way to Move - Miriam Hak
One of the coaches described speed skating as “a beautiful way to move”. It truly is. And it is extremely exhilarating – someone recently told me it’s the fastest human-propelled sport in existence today!
- Canada Day Criterium - Canada Day Criterium
Host of the Canada Day Criterium, the Edmonton Juventus Cycling Club offers great riding and racing opportunities to all age groups. Members are beginner to national team level cyclists who enjoy track cycling, mountain biking, and cycle cross and road racing.

I really began to understand Edmonton when I started cycling through it. About 4 years ago I adopted the bicycle as my primary, and favourite, mode of transportation.
- Enduring an Edmonton Winter: Curling - Eric O'Brien
There are 2 types of curlers: one half conferences around the TSN curling broadcast and makes comments like, “Boy, that yellow rock is sure buried deep”; the other half watches a game out on the ice and strategizes, “If it were me, I’d have Linda peel that guard so that Terry doesn’t have a chance to score 2 and take it into extras.”
- Lottery Winners with Winter-Cold Noses - Bev Betkowski
As the human plaything of 3 cats myself, my heart warms when I see a news story about a rescued scrap of fur, and how the offers of a forever home pour in over the next few days.
- Natural Bodybuilding - Aman Takhar
The event was exciting, very nerve-wracking. The training itself up to the competition is quite intense. It takes a lot out of a person. It involves a strict diet and a rigorous workout schedule.
- Our Picturesque Valley - Lori Frank
Every morning I pinch myself with the beautiful view of our river valley and Victoria golf course. It is like going on a holiday every day.

Edmonton is a vibrant community with many hidden treasures. I find my peace at a local dog park. Mill Woods is a south-side neighborhood with great restaurants and walking trails.
- The Years at TELUS Field - Alex Karen
Got my Sprite. Got my soft pretzel. And one of my favorite players, Valentino Pascucchi, is up to bat. This...this is the life.
- Things I Must Do - Sandy Mowat
Sandy moved to Edmonton with her husband. She is getting to know Edmonton with new friends and getting involved in the community by volunteering.
- Why I Love Edmonton: A Poem - Dan Lokhorst
But if I had to choose a single spot to call my own, Then I'd have to say it's Edmonton, my river city home.

I promised myself that I wouldn’t work in food service for the rest of my life.
