Cycling events all over the world are being cancelled.
Every year for the past decade, I have completed the Pacific Populaire, a 100 km ride organized by the B.C. Randonneurs Cycling Club. It has kept me motivated over the winter months, and since it starts and ends just a few blocks from home, there i have no excuse. This year, even before its cancellation, I decided not to do it.
I was preparing to peak this week after carefully progressing through a base, build, and peak blocks for the past 5 months.
What do I do now?
I have picked another century event scheduled for the first week of July. That may be optimistic. Maybe not. It will at least keep me focused as I cycle back through another set, albeit shorter, of base, build, and peak phases.
The weather is improving so it should be easier to get out on the bikes, the perfect physical distancing machines 😂👍
