What's On, June?
Don't let winter derail your fitness: Vaikobi free shipping till 10 June!
Well, our extended Indian summer seems to have come to an abrupt end, and it's now time to steel ourselves for cold-weather training. At Peak Adventure, we pride ourselves on running sessions all year-round, come rain, hail or shine, and believe that the winter months are actually invaluable for laying down a solid fitness base. Just think, while all the fair-weather paddlers and runners are hitting snooze and sinking beneath the doona, you could be adding those crucial one percenters that make all the difference come race day.
The key, of course, is preparation, and by that we mean good gear. As the saying goes, there is no such thing as poor weather, just poor clothing!
To this end, we are excited to offer FREE SHIPPING on latest cold-weather performance paddling gear from Vaikobi. Just order by 10 June using the code: PEA123 to take advantage of this offer. Vaikobi V Cold Storm Paddle Top, $179.95:
