Epic Bike Ride

No, this hasn't happened yet, but it's in the works!
I went for a ride yesterday as the clocks have changed and there's more daylight after I finish at school/placement. It wasn't too cold so I only went out in a hoodie, without gloves. It turned out to be a bit colder than I was dressed for. I did a decent half-hour ride through an area I don't go through often. It was super nice!! The knee doesn't bother me while cycling, so it's a lot better than just sitting on the couch 'resting' it, I think. ACTIVE recovery ftw :D

This is from a month ago - you won't see any icicles now! :)
Since the weather is getting nicer and I found a helmet to wear, I have decided to plan an epic bike ride for next weekend. I am looking for a cycle partner that will embark on this adventure with me :)
I was thinking of finding a camping site about 30k away and biking there to see it. I've never been camping in Canada before (I hope it'll happen this summer) so it would be a nice destination and mid-point to a ride. I think my longest ride has been about 25k, so it would be nice to set aside a whole morning and make it a big deal.

Has anyone else done any long bike rides? Do you have any tips for me?


  1. Wow, that sounds like crazy fun! Hope it all works out! = )

  2. YES! gotta love those epic rides. I've never done one with a group - I like the time to get into my own head and knock out some of the cob webs.
