Transrockies

Just finishing up the last minute packing of all the gear needed for a seven day mountain bike ride through the Canadian Rockies. This year the Transrockies covers about 550km and rumored over 12000m of climbing (ouch...). Starting in Panorama, we'll make our way south and eventually end up in Fernie. Along the way we'll be making stops at the K2 Ranch in Invermere, two nights at the Nipika, the very remote Whiteswan Lakes, Elkford and the Crowsnest Pass.

Dallas and I are competing in a pretty stacked co-ed field and I hope our bodies and bikes hold out for the journey....as well as the good weather.

Hi Mical & Dallas
Up against stacked team's? Wait till they see the "Beauty & the Beast" out there! Ride safe, enjoy the course, have fun with each other, & relax with your friends. Really wish I was there.
Luv & hug's

Mical - glad to see you found a way to make it through without a total strikeout... those first few days you looked pretty hurting. Must have felt good to at least get some of the racing in.

There's many more to come!
