You know, come to think of it, #QueensCX was a lot less wet this year. There wasn’t even any running water down this run up. Bit of mud though. #mudsweatandsprinkles 📷:?

Still flashing back to one of my favourite rides of 2017-a gravel grind through Fisherman’s Trail in North Van. I resolve to ride more gravel epics in 2018. Once the roads start to dry out for Spring, the knobbies are going back on. 📷: @djgillam #fromwhereiride

Previously buried in a set from CX Provincials, I’m sharing this photo by the famous @jeannineavelino again, because it might be my favourite racing pic from last year. Not just for the look of determination on the climb, but I mean LOOK at how well the socks and shoes go with the bike. This was my best day of racing ever in terms of personal performance, and it has to be at least in the top 10 in terms of sock game. #sockdoping #rule29 #tcxadvancedpro2 #ridelife

Put to the test. . . . . My first time testing with the team @CSIPacific today. Combination of nerves and excitement for sure. For (just like all the other athletes who have been in that room) there’ll always be something inside – curious to find that edge – can’t help but get as close as I can to lean in and peer down… but man it’s tough that progress requires pain, and pain demands to be felt. But #hot damn if you don’t catch me smiling in the end (just after I catch my breath 🤤). . . . . #limitless #dowhatyoulove #gritandgrace #cycling #cyclingbc #cyclinglife #bikelove #lifeofadventure #radgirlslife #swimbikerun #finditliveit #instagood #photooftheday #icaniwill #thisgirlcan #wymtm #andshesdopetoo #sportsphotography

Today was the last day of the @cyc@cyclingbc Athlete and Coach Conference. From Louis Passfield to Dave Freeze to Jenn Turner to an amazing athletes panel with @tristenchernove @haleyhuntersmith @felixburke.1 @rileypickrell @sara.h_vd @andrewpinfold @ben_chaddock and @bstorey. I am still overwhelmed with their passion in talking about moving from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, being true to yourself, the “word vomit” technique, and giving back to your community. The room was filled with all ages... Photos from the conference are available through my profile link courtesy of @cyclingbc.

Today was the @cyclingbc Athletes Conference and it was pretty amazing...and even I was learning lots. We covered sponsorship with @power2max_na , goal setting with Richard Wooles, anti-doping with Tara Mowat, recovery tips from Jenn Turner and mental training with Dave Freeze. Then I had the pleasure of capturing these smiles.

Got a little mud on the tires. . .🤠🤙 . . . . Always pleasantly humbled by the first Oak Bay ride of the year. And solid timing for the blue sky to turn grey, windy and raining—I would’ve recognized this loop in January without looking through muddy lens and (not really) braking with frozen fingers. Just burning off the crazy I guess. . . . . #cycling #cyclingbc #fromwhereiride #yyj #instacycling #mudding #wetnwild #limitless #dowhatyoulove #gritandgrace #lifeofadventure #radgirlslife #swimbikerun #finditliveit #instagood #photooftheday #thisgirlcan #andshesdopetoo

First ride with the #GoPro in my pocket. Get ready for the a lot more #bikeselfie action as I get used to using it, and start buying various mounts. This was a test to see if I could get the Lion’s Gate Bridge into frame. It worked. #fromwhereiride

Put the clips back on my bike. My goal this year is to keep them there... no taking them off. As a newer cyclist they scare me, especially for cyclocross!

It’s been a very busy couple of weeks, with very little time for riding outside, or for much of anything outside of work. I’m happy to be busy, but it helps to reflect back on great gravel rides like this one. #gravelgrinder 📷: @djgillam

Can’t ride outside today, so it’s another day on the trainer. The question is, which socks should I wear? When my soigneuse organized my riding kit into baskets, she thought there would be more socks. But there’s a perfectly reasonable amount. #sockdoping #socksofinstagram

As winter bikes go, I could do a lot worse. The new year begins with me getting destroyed by my teammates in our first training rides of the year, so about the only thing that’s different is this terrific bike. She looks a bit funny with 25mm tires, but rides just great. #ridelife #tcxadvancedpro2

Naturally, after I posted a pic of my living room, I got a bunch of questions about... my trainer setup. It’s low cost and high tech, and worth taking a look at in detail. First, yes I put my race bike on the trainer. I’m using an old tire and old skewer, but nothing different otherwise. That’s an old @cycleops flywheel trainer, that I stole from my dad. Those can be had for as little as $100 these days. Aside from that, I have the @4iiiicom PRECISION powermeter, a Garmin HRM, and a @suunto Ant+ dongle in my MacBook Air, with an HDMI cable to the 55” display. The sum total of those parts gives me an accurate power readout in #Zwift that I can use to follow prescribed workouts, or even race if I’m so inclined. Sometimes, on descents I even get vertigo. That’s a cell phone holder on the handlebar, for tunes to drown out the trainer noise, which drowns out the Zwift sounds. The towels (I also keep one on the bar in addition to the one on the rug) and fan are the most important hardware in the whole setup. #paincave #poweredby4iiii

What makes cycling Lake2Lake a great New Year’s goal? Because it’s a 2-day ride! Lake2Lake requires endurance training. Anyone can ride for one day, but getting back in the saddle on day #2 is a challenge for even the most seasoned riders. But the amazing support and camaraderie makes it possible and so very rewarding! Join us September 15-16 to accomplish your goal!! #lake2lake #cycling #cyclingbc #rideforrwanda #roadcycling #newyearsresolution #newyearsgoal #2018 #2018goals

Here’s another #topnine - from our club @glotmansimpsoncycling. #Cyclocross pics feature prominently, in large part due to the top notch curation and creativity of @chriswillbeerbike, the wizard behind the curtain of our Instagram feed over Fall and Winter. Fittingly, even all of my aggressive hashtagging couldn’t get me featured in this collage, but I can be seen: where I belong, in the distant background of a pic of @bunjiford, who I expect will continue to finish ahead of me for years to come. Huge thanks to all of my teammates and club members for a fantastic year, and already a hot start to 2018. #gscycling #mudsweatandsprinkles
