Mandy at the MS Society’s Active Living Workshop
September 19, 2014 | By Nadia
Attention BC Urban Polers! Any plans for your Saturday? Join Mandy tomorrow as she gives a talk at the MS Society’s Active Living Workshop at the Pinetree Community Centre in Coquitlam! Mandy will be presenting on the ACTIVATOR poles and Urban Poling for those living with MS. Hope to see you there!
For moderately steep slopes, simply decrease the pressure on the base of the handles or drag your poles behind you. For steep slopes, keep your poles upright and in front and out to the side slightly, so if you do fall you won’t land on your poles. Bend your knees and elbows, and slow down any momentum. For long descents, it may be helpful to lengthen the poles.
