Happy birthday to my girl! The most driven, talented, and easygoing person I know. May you be less afraid of spiders this year ❤️
A little bummed that I missed all the crits in August and now racing season is over 😢 still, this summer of racing was filled with wonderful memories, and tons of learning from many talented and seasoned local racers. Looking forward to next season! This shot was from Ladner Crit in July. Thanks @tlbvelo and @boxcar16 for capturing this event! #roadcycling #roadracing #roadbikes #critracing #critlife #criterium #crit #gofastturnleft #fromwhereiride #shouldveriddeninthedrops
My first DNF! (in my case- did not see fence). I was going well at the provincial crit last weekend, feeling good, and going on a solo break for a few laps. Tried to pick the smallest line around the course and at some point as I looked down briefly and was expecting to ride close to the curb, what I found instead was the start of a barrier fence. The crash looked bad and the cut above my brow was a proper bleeder. I got wheeled away in an ambulance and that was my race. I was extremely disappointed- in my mind I had plans of sitting in the sun after, beer in hand, with a few friends who had come to watch. I guess that’s not how things always go. In any case I’m extremely fortunate to have escaped with only scrapes, bruises, and a few stitches. Thanks to all the fine men and women who came to my aid. I’m also very very moved by all the well wishes that have been flooding in from friends, teammates and “rivals” alike. Lesson learned and looking forward to my next race!

Last weekend I was surprised to find myself fourth overall at the Escape Velocity stage race. Racing has been a humbling experience, being surrounded by guys who are stronger and smarter racers. But it’s been pushing me to be a better cyclist. A few crashes happened last week and I hope that all involved are healing up well. It reminds me that to be riding at all is a privilege, one that I should not take for granted. #roadcycling #roadracing #stagerace #timetrial #ridejahbike
First road race ever yesterday. Great learning experience and stoked about all the Gastown victories! And if you can’t win, you can just hope that @tlbvelo took a good photo of you!
