Tour de Whistler

Epic Day!

Jason, Taylor, Mike, Roman and I took off to find bears. That was the goal. If I didn’t deliver, I was pretty much off the team. After a nice coffee stop at Alpine, we took off for Callaghan. Four bears later and a lap of the Olympic 5km Nordic course in WOP and I was still on the team! Good stuff.

Then it was off to Kadenwood for some climbing. A brief stop at the boneyard in the village to show Mike and Taylor just how crazy downhill mountain bikers really are (and what the best downhill mountain biking in the world looks like) and then it was off to the top of the bobsled track. Steep ass! Another bear at the top, sandwiches at Portbello and a gander at Lost Lake topped of the Tour de Whistler.
Then of course it was up to the lake. Good times.
