a surprise snowfall overnight and through the day. it was supposed to miss the city, but wound up catching us after all. unfortunately for me, this means the bike will be parked in the garage for the rest of the week, and then I’m on vacation until after new year’s, so I’m likely done riding for the year…

hill training


I took a detour on the ride home today to add some big hills to start training for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. I wound up almost all the way down to the Bow River, at the Stoney Trail bridge, and climbed up almost to Crowchild Trail. The hill here is at the south entrance of Tuscany – it doesn’t look like much of a hill from here, but it’s a whopper. I’ll be trying to do this a few times a week, in addition to longer rides to build endurance.
