My 2020 Cycling Goal …

I said earlier that I was encouraged with my result in the Kawartha Lakes Classic. A personal best time for the distance. Imagine that, at my age.

So, what’s next?

In 2017, I completed the Whistler Gran Fondo, a 122 km race from Vancouver to the Whistler ski resort on the scenic Sea-to-Sky highway. The thing is, I was disappointed with my time. I was still recovering from a concussion from a high speed crash on a long descent.

Do you remember that?

I was symptom free, but overly cautious on descents, of which there were many.

And, I was ill prepared for the cold, and rain that day. Expecting sun, I wore the wrong kit, and subsequently froze. At the finish, I was hypothermic, and couldn’t stop shaking.

I could have done better.

I can to do better.

So, my 2020 cycling goal is to finish in the top 3 of my age bracket in the Whistler Gran Fondo.

I’d say win my age group, but that’s not realistic. In my experience, there is always someone faster.

There, I’ve said it. I can’t change my mind now. You will keep me to it.

Now I can work on an appropriate training plan. I’m going to tweak how I train, and pimp my ride.
