Wheels Up! Next Stop, Vancouver

"Have I done enough?" I asked Gerhard yesterday. "Just the right amount," he said. And with that, we have arrived on the eve of the long-awaited, much-anticipated 2014 BC Bike Race. Bucket list item, gnarly bike event and my first stage race. 

Home Sweet Home!
This is a quick post to say I'm packed and on my way. I can't thank everyone enough for their support, especially my PIT CREW EXTRAORDINAIRE, Mom, Dad and Gerhard in the RV with Mama Bear and Papa Bear Gross heading up our satellite operations in Cumberland. 

We're looking forward to seeing as many of our friends and family in BC as possible so be sure to get in touch if we haven't tracked you down yet. 

And if you can't be in BC but want to get in on the action, here is a quick run down of how you can "follow" us:

Because my mom is awesome, she went all out and made this logo into T-shirts for us all to sport. I couldn't get everyone a T-shirt but if you want to show your support during the race, here are some options!
