To wrap up an incredible summer of bike-capades in Europe, I signed up for a 24-hour time trial in the 6-12-24 World Time Trial Championships taking place October 25-26, 2018, in Borrego Springs, California. Some friends in Sunny San Diego invited me to turn their home into a training camp, so here I am: cruising the shores of Encinitas and eating tacos.
Why did I sign up? The opportunity to rub shoulders with RAAM legend and ultra-badass Seana Hogan, for one, but also because I’m looking for a final opportunity to test my limits before the 2018 season is over. I want to know:
- How many miles I can pack into a 24-hour period?
- Am I able to ride through the night without stopping?
- Will I survive the desert heat once the mercury starts to rise on day two?
- What crazy places will my mind go when there’s nothing left to do but pedal?
Now is my chance to find out.
FitSpeek—the Fraser Valley’s Wellness, Fitness, and Endurance Sports Podcast-—invited me to chat about my summer of cycling as well as training for the upcoming 24-hour time trial. Listen to our conversation on Episode 47.
Feeling the stoke! Ready to roll out for a morning interval ride.
