Ride Report: Ride4UnitedWay 60K, 2019

I’m started to like non-race events. I get to practice some road handling skills, meet like-minded people, and simply have fun. 

Ride4UnitedWay took place in Durham, ON. A place I haven’t been since graduating from UOIT! 

Initially, I was going to do the 100K route, but there was a severe thunderstorm warning. So I switched to the 60K to be on the safe side. But in a strange turn of events, there wasn’t a drop of rain. We had some gusts and a very welcomed overcast. 

My cycling has improved significantly. I am now comfortable and can pass people on steep climbs, and am confident on thrilling descents.

To-do: I still really need to learn to grab my water bottle, and eat while riding.

This was a fun event because my friend Randall came along. His longest ride was 40K, so this was a big event for him, and I’m so proud of his fast progress!

At the end of the ride, we feasted on a free lunch. We had a veggie burger with quinoa salad. Good times!


Winter is Coming: Indoor Training

What do you do on a Sunday morning when some of your buddies and idols are racing @nycmarathon? You watch the livestream while you ride of course! Intense & sweaty 66KM grind in 3hours on @gozwift @gozwifttriathlon. Got some work done on it too hehe. Love riding my @trekbikes #trekdomane Domane on the @wahoofitnessofficial KICKR core ????? I was starving after toasted up sourdough rye and layer those mofos with peanut butter, berry spread, bananas, and eggs ?????. Good times #hardworkpaysoff #nolimits#zwift #betterwithbikes #gozwift#FindFaster #wahooligan #THISIS30#paincave


New Bike Day: TREK Domane SL5

#NewBikeDay – Say hello to Diana. After many months of research, conversations with friends and cyclists, I finally picked up my first road bike (or any bike for that matter)! Thanks to Dan and the experts at @trekbikes / @trekstoreaurora for setting me up the the #Trek #DomaneSL5. She’s a true carbon beauty ?????. I’m absolutely sure she’s going to whip my ass into shape and give me bruises and scratches ?. Can’t wait to give her a full ride! #BetterWithBikes #ShowYourStripes#Trek #TrekBikes #THISIS30
