- The BC Ride to Conquer Cancer 2019 was as moving and humbling as 2017.
- So many survivors.
- So many lost.
- So many stories. Hope lives!
- I couldn’t really look at the photos that people attached to their the bicycles as they rode. Too teary!
- I felt healthier and the fact that I could ride the challenge route of 150km so fast and the normal route on day 2 of 105km so fast is a testament to the training that I did and the amazing advice and coaching from (not in order)
- Coach J (maple syrup and so many tips)
- Brite Coaching (without Zach’s krazy training ride up Tolmie think I would have been walking up the super steep hill on day 1! The Spanish Bank repeats made the rest of the RCC hills a breeze not to mention riding the UBC crit course)
- the amazing Lotus bicycle club (I have learned so much from riding with the peeps at Lotus; the atmosphere of friendliness and learning together is infectious and without the Brite Coaching training arranged by Lotus, my riding would be so much less efficient and more tiring.
- electrolytes from Precision Hydration (no cramps! no achey feeling two days after! again arranged by Lotus).
- And of course hats off to “fastest bicyclist uphill” Andy :-) for waiting for me and pushing me to do the challenge route!
- Biggest thanks to my life, my support, my anchor: my fantastic partner Barb! Thanks for putting up with me being absent all those training hours.
- Mega thanks to all my donors! Thank you thank you thank you! Please donate in 2020 again if you can
- Maybe next year I’ll decorate the 1946 Schwinn and ride the “normal” route for a different kind of challenge :-) ?!?! Who needs more than 8 gears!?!?
Day 1 Strava - RTCC 2019 Day 1 Challenge Route
- heart rate is wrong on the high boundary; 99% sure my heart rate didn’t go above 180bpm
Day 1 Strava - RTCC 2019 Day 2
- the calories is wrong :-) Maybe Strava thought I was riding the much heavier Schwinn :-) ?
