About This Novice Road Cyclist
Hello World 🙂
I started this blog to chronicle my journey towards an epic charitable event – the 2012 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer! The event entailed cycling from Vancouver to Seattle over the course of 2 days – a total of 250km. I was so nervous & excited, as this was the toughest physical challenge I had ever set myself up for. But I made it and fell in love with cycling in the process!
On June 16 – 17, 2012 I was part of the 3,011 cyclists who raised over $11 million for the BC Cancer Foundation. I had set up a corporate cycling team at my work place – and between the 8 of us, we managed to raise just over $25,000.
So I am road cycling newbie – with a passion for learning more about this sport, cycling farther distances and meeting more fellow cyclists.
I cycle as often as I can because I love it …. and of course I do other sports too – hiking, skiing, tennis. I am lucky enough to live in Vancouver, B.C. which is one of the BEST places on earth to be active.
So many options & one big beautiful backyard full of beaches, trails, mountains, rivers and more! 🙂
