Last night Vanessa, her two daughters Sarah and Emily, Rich and I went to Rip N Richards for Sarah's 7th birthday. We had finished the Fernie Fix - Winter Guide just hours beforehand, and were ready for a little celebration.
The TransRockies. A race I fell for long ago at my first finisher's banquet in 2006. Boy those "recap" videos are a great marketing tactic! I had been biking for just one season and was adamant about taking on this challenge. Of course I was talked out of it by friends and family, and myself once discovering the daily average of hours on the bike and the technical difficulty. I was in serious need of more time in the saddle.
