Late in 2011, I had my first cycling experience–and have never looked back. I’d never have tried it if not for celebrated Olympian and humanitarian Clara Hughes. The first day, I didn’t change a gear for 20k…and on day two, hills  just about beat me. I’ve come a long way since then, clocking a few thousand kilometres and a bunch of charity rides. It’s an amazing thing… trying something new, and seeing where it goes. Highly recommended!
