Since a big part of Dean’s adventures are about cycling, I though I’d create a post about bikes and cycling. Are there any other members here that are cyclists, be it commuters, road cyclists, mountain bikers? I myself love to road cycle and I commute to work on my folding bike.
I have a Trek bike myself, like Dean, which I love. I think Trek makes fantastic bikes and I will always stick with them, although I do find myself drooling over Cervélos 🙂
I train every spring/summer to take part in the the yearly GranFondo bike ride. It’s a 122km (1900m elevation) ride from Vancouver, BC, Canada to Whistler, BC, Canada. I’ve been doing it for many years now and love it. I also took part last year in the “Ride to Conquer Cancer”, which is a 2 day over 200km bike ride, to raise money for the BC Cancer Agency. I signed up again this year but it got postponed to next year due to the pandemic.
I enjoy riding my Brompton folding bike, which I named “Bromhilde” to work every day, rain or shine. In the fall/winter I find myself on more wet commutes than dry, as we get a lot of rain in Vancouver!!! I don’t mind it too much though.
One of my dreams would be to do some cycling in Europe as well, especially through Switzerland, my country of origin, and then down the coast of Italy.
i’m a casual cyclist going on 5 years now. started with YSC TourdePink attempting 200 miles over 3 days. most i’ve done is 157 miles.
i was gifted a Liv Avail for my first ride along with a helmet, shoes and clips since i’m a young breast cancer survivor. at the time i signed up for the ride to celebrate 10 years and because some survivor-sisters peer pressured me. love them to pieces!
last year i acquired a second liv bike for casual rides and when i don’t feel like clipping in or when we are down by the water.
our team wasn’t able to ride this year due to covid-19 but we are still trying to fundraise and we all rode where we lived…florida, texas, colorado and california.
