Lisa Willemse is a writer and com­mu­ni­ca­tions strate­gist who is never far from the out­doors. She spent more than a dozen years liv­ing in Al­berta’s Bow Val­ley, where she first be­gan moun­tain bik­ing as a rest-day ac­tiv­ity from var­i­ous climb­ing pur­suits. In 2008, Willemse moved to the Ot­tawa, Ont. area, hung up the chalk bag and be­gan ex­plor­ing the sin­gle­track net­works in the city’s big back­yard. She’s turned her love of wooded trails into a busy vol­un­teer job, serv­ing on the board of the Ot­tawa Moun­tain Bike As­so­ci­a­tion and work­ing with land man­agers in a pro­gram to in­te­grate 100+ kilo­me­tres of new sin­gle­track into Gatineau Park.
