Ride For A Reason
We sell more Encompass Nutrients in our office than any other product. We love their products and how much they benefit our customers, but we also love their mission of giving hope to orphans by giving 80% of their profits! This past weekend, they sponsored a big bike ride. Not big in number of participants, but in how many miles they rode. Read more about it here!
Big Ride Recap
Sometime in early July, Doc brought up the idea of riding our bikes from Shipshewana, IN to Fremont, OH; the town we both grew up in. At first, I thought he was a little crazy and there was no way we’d actually do it. However, there are those who dream big and never follow through with those dreams, and then there are your Terrance Waggoners of the world. So, after looking at our calendars, we decided on a date; August 9th.
As the theme song from Nacho Libre rang out from my phone (my alarm ring tone), I rolled out of bed and glanced at the clock. 5:20 am. My parents had spent the night as well, and I wasn’t surprised at all that my father (Doc’s brother) was already awake and getting things around. It can get a little confusing trying to figure out what to pack and where to put it when all you have are three pockets on the back of your shirt, a
vehicle that will be stopping to check on you several hours down the road, and then a separate vehicle bringing you back. So, I threw a few Clif Bars in my Jersey, a zip lock bag in case it rained (for keeping my phone dry), and a few rubber bands. You never know when you might need them. I meant to put a fresh change of bike clothes in my mom’s van so I could change if the day wound up getting hotter than expected. Unfortunately, I forgot and it ended up at my office instead. With the bikes loaded and our minds wondering what we may have forgotten (you know the feeling), we took off for Community Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Shipshewana, IN; the official start of our journey. Doc was already there getting his water bottles filled, tires pumped up, and Continue Reading »
Cycling Club 1st Ride This Saturday!
If you recall, back in early April we announced that we’d be starting a cycling club here at Community Chiropractic. Our purpose is to promote healthy living through exercise, and provide an opportunity for cycling enthusiasts, hobbyists, and newcomers alike to get out and ride together. Dr. Waggoner and I have been biking all around the Shipshewana, Middlebury, Bristol, and Lagrange areas, and there is a lot of beauty to take in here in Northern Indiana. The structure of the rides will be somewhat dependent upon who shows up. Eventually, we may get up to 2 or 3 rides per week, depending on the level of interest.
We are happy to announce that the wait is over, and we’ll be having our first Community Chiropractic Cycling Club (CCCC) ride out of Shipshewana this Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. Please make sure to bring a helmet, and a water bottle so you can stay hydrated. We’ll meet right here at the Community Chiropractic office in Shipshe. The address 660A South Van Buren St. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 260-894-1739 to speak with me (Aaron). We’ll look forward to seeing you Saturday morning! Have a great week!

Get Ready to Ride!
We are proud to announce the formation of the CCWC cycling club! We will meet several times a week (weather permitting)! We will post the week’s ride times and routes on our Face Book page, so make sure you check in often. Watch our Facebook page for announcements on when the first ride will be. Tell your friends!
We will have group rides with different levels of riders. The rule will be no one person will ride alone at the back of the pack. So, we will always have someone riding with you. If you go out in front and we can’t hang with you, that’s ok too. You will have the route.
CCWC cycling club jerseys will be available for $50 to anyone who wants one! The first few have been ordered. Once we get them in, we’ll get some photos up of what they look like, and start taking orders! More information to follow!
Looking forward to enjoying the country side of northern Indiana and Southern Michigan with you,
