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 in June, and the Kettle Mettle in September. The weather … Continue reading Gracias Golden Ears Fondo

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 4 days before the race, most of the conversation about … Continue reading Up next..Gravel Fondo?

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 inspiration has been waning lately. Not for lack of opportunity … Continue reading New Inspirations

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 has been tuned up and is feeling good. Likely will … Continue reading Training season has started

Polarizing tides of Solo Travel

I woke up yesterday morning with this memory from my solo cycling trip in the summer of 2016. Going from Calgary to Vancouver. I was outside of a gas station on the outskirts of Kamloops BC. It was hot. That muggy kind of hot you can’t shake even in the shade of a tree. I was frustrated because I had to get off the main … Continue reading Polarizing tides of Solo Travel

Rear View Mirror 2016

Its 1130am on the last day of the year. I have spent much of the last month grinding it out at work and fighting off a bit of a cold. Classic way to end the year. As it is for most folks, I too, find myself in reflection of the last 12 months. It has been a fairly busy year. Full of some fantastic highlights. … Continue reading Rear View Mirror 2016

Sunshine Coast Cycling

Hey folks. Last summer I cycled an amazing route along the Sunshine Coast. Rolling hills, some big climbs and some cold beers. I was asked recently if I could put together an article for folks looking to go cycle touring in that region. If you ever venture out this way it is a fantastic ride. Check out the article here: Cheers. http://www.explore-mag.com/Langdale-to-Lund-the-Sunshine-Coast-Cycling-Route-you-Need-to-Pedal     Continue reading Sunshine Coast Cycling

Big trips and the future.

And with that summer looks like it is getting ready to pack it in. The last few months have been a whirlwind for me. Some big trips, some small ones. Weddings and BBQ’s. Leading into fall feels a bit different this year. With our family getting a little bigger in the upcoming year, I am excited at the whole new world of adventure that lies ahead. As for the … Continue reading Big trips and the future.

Cycle Touring Across BC

I had an opportunity this summer to tackle an Epic “Bucket list” type trip. Cycling from Calgary Alberta to Richmond BC. 11 days, 1100kms, and a few big hills to climb.
