I feel like like a cyclist again!

I feel like like a cyclist again!

So with the King Ridge Granfondo a month away, I went to camp for 10 days and didn’t ride. Prior to being away I was getting pretty strong. But with little more than indulging on buffets and too much beer, my first rides after camp was like I was riding in a sumo wrestler suit. I gained 6lb and it took more than few rides to shed the pounds and gain some form back.

Fast forward to today. My dad brought a couple of deep dish carbon wheelsets back from China and I finally put wheels together today. Man, these wheels are the steroid-like injection I needed to improve my game. They are so noticeably faster that I set personal bests on 4 out of 5 hills on my training route! These wheels are the single best upgrade to my cycling that I can think of.

King Ridge GF is looming!

King Ridge GF is looming!

It’s just little over 2 weeks before the 160km King Ridge Granfondo and I’m alittle under-trained not riding from a couple of weeks.  But in the 10 days off from riding, I wanted to share with you a place that I visited while working.  Highway 37 from Kitwanga to Bell 2.  I saw many cyclists completing this part of the journey where they flew to Alaska and spent months riding back to Vancouver.  Hwy 37 is one of the most underutilized highway in BC.  Hwy 37 is definitely on my bucket list!
