september highwood pass ride

easily the hardest bike ride I’ve ever done. Not the longest, but over 1000m of climbing, with constant headwinds. Awesome. So much fun. And ouch. We started 25km further out (from Boundary Ranch) than our usual Highwood Pass route (starting at the North Gate), so the ride was about 50km longer than usual. I wound up snapping a spoke and getting a flat less than 3km from the cars. And Anthony got 2 flats within 1km of each other, near the summit....

2012 Banff Gran Fondo

What an awesome ride. 1500 riders, with highways through the Rockies reserved for bikes. Epic. a few more photos and the Strava page for the ride.
