Last weekend myself and 2509 other cyclists lined up to ride the Valley First GranFondo Axel Merckx in Penticton B.C. The cyclists were spread out between three different distances. 1,590 rode the 160km GranFondo. 785 rode the 92km Medio Fondo and 135 rode the 50km CortoFondo. Although each cyclist, in each category, rode the same route, in the same conditions and on the same day, nobody will have the same story. Here is my story.

You never know where life is going to take you or what will happen. It's been the most stressful two and a half years I've ever had due to a wide variety of reasons. The positive side is some resolution for the physical difficulties I have had. I fell in January and two months later discovered I broke it. Well...technically, I broke a 2" extra bone that I had in the ankle. In April I had the bone removed and I am doing amazingly well. Unfortunately I have the same extra 2" bone on my right…Continue
