  • Missed GRX shifting issues solved

    My legs were smashed from a 23km run on Friday so I took it easy on Saturday riding around the dyke system in Chilliwack looking for a Christmas tree a friend took a picture of. No tree, but I had a muffin and figured out why I was missing some shifts on my GRX setup. […]

  • Lost and Maybe Trespassing on Vedder Mountain

    I wanted to investigate a new trail on Vedder Mountain that took my back down into Columbia Valley. Instead I ended up on the Race Around the Lake course and then came back up the trail I wanted to hit. Lots of tough descending and creek crossings. Hard day and much fun was had.

  • Last Gravel Ride on my MEC Cote

    Since I had a new Felt Broam coming, I decided to enjoy one last fall day on the older gravel bike. I may still ride it, but likely not on any bigger gravel rides. Enjoy the last day where I cheer on friends in a race, ride, then cheer another friend on in the same […]

  • Low Visibility Archibald and West Cheam Ridge

    Sept 18 my wonderful mother-in-law agreed to watch the kids so that Cynthia and I could have a date night. While some couples grab a coffee and take a walk, we decided to head up Mt Archibald and connect it into the summit of Mt Cheam via the west ridge trail. While this trail has […]

  • Mount Frosty via the PCT in Manning Park

    September 21 2019 I have my big goal race of the year. Yes, it’s a low key race. No, I won’t be in contention for a top 10 spot even. I’m hoping to not be the last person in. Every year my biggest concern is making the cut-off for the first 27km, which is 5 […]

  • Stein Valley – Quest For 10 #3

    We’re a one car family, which means despite my best planning I don’t always have access to our car on a Monday. That was the case this Monday. My wife had skate camp to teach which meant she needed the car to get my oldest daughter and herself there and back. That means no Monday […]

  • Elk, Thurston and Mercer

    In my continued quest to complete the Quest for 10 from Mt Waddington’s I tackled another route today. This is one I’ve done a few times, but it’s always been delightful. While you can head to Mercer from one of the 4WD roads and get within a few kilometres, I much prefer to head up […]

  • Monument 78 and Windy Joe

    Around this time of year for the last number of years our local outdoor shop, Mt Waddington’s runs a contest called the Quest for 10. Well, it’s sort of a contest. Mostly it’s a list of 10 hikes in the area that aren’t the main ones and you do them to get a chance to […]

  • Gloria Lookout to Thurston Connector

    In 2016 I had a brilliant idea, why on earth do I need to work Monday? Why can’t I go skiing with my daughter every Monday in the winter? So, as soon has her Sunday ski lessons ended in January, I didn’t work a Monday until after Spring Break. Fast forward to 2019 and I’m […]
