Watersprite Lake Peak Bagging Adventure

So about a month ago and I was scrolling through the likes of Instagram one evening and came across some popular shots of Watersprite Lake BC. A very iconic looking scene. Crystal clear blue water, with a mountainous backdrop of rocky peaks just begging to be climbed. I was drawn in. I assembled a team….

35 hours and 42 minutes of Epicness

1168 kilometers, 2 states, 1 mountain, 35 hours and 42 minutes of epicness. The objective was simple enough. Drive from Vancouver, BC to Government Camp, Oregon and summit Mount Hood via the Hogsback/ Southside route, and drive home. With our lack of time away this trip was all business for my friend Tristan and I….

When you are short on time

So when your short on time but still have that hunger to climb to new heights, what do you do? Well me and my friend Tristan have found ourselves in that very predicament. Both having young kids at home, and busy work schedules, it isn’t always as easy to regularly get out and tackle some…

Bikes,Beers,and the Boys

So last weekend was our Annual “Guys Trip”. A standing tradition that me and a few friends have been keeping alive for a number of years now. It usually takes the form of some physical discipline and camping. Not always the same folks make it out, and not always the same activities year after year….

Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

So last Saturday, my mate Seb and I go rolling in to Peace park at the southern tip of Coast Meridian road on the banks of the the Pitt River. We were there to attend the inaugural Golden Ears Fondo. Race 1 in a triple crown race series. The other 2 being The Cowichan Crusher…

Up next..Gravel Fondo?

So you know when you sign up for a race on a whim. You know you really don’t have any expectations on the outcome, or even what you might be getting yourself into. That would be me with the current race on my plate. The Golden Ears Gravel Fondo. It is it’s inaugural race and…

New Inspirations

So addimittedly I have been pretty non-existent lately though not completely off the radar. I have kept myself busy with an early April Trail race under my belt for the year and am switching gears into training for my upcoming 100+km Golden Ears Fondo (cycling) in just over a month. But… Truth be told, my…

Training season has started

Well I feel it’s officially time. Training season has started. A few races lined up so far. Both running and cycling. I managed to get out for a 80km ride yesterday with my brother which was good. We don’t often have too much time these days to put in a long ride together. The bike…

As it goes…

So as it goes. Our attempt at the Neve Traverse was halted by poor weather and high avi conditions. The weather pattern we had hoped for delayed itself a few days and the end result being that our window of opportunity closed for the time frame we had committed to the project. We will be…

Spaces in between

We are 3 days out from our next trip. A 50km journey over the Garibaldi Neve Traverse. My gear is in piles on the balcony. Lists half made of what I need to bring on my coffee table. I sometimes wonder. Am I the only one who packs like this? I find myself at this…
