Dear Friends:

I've decided to do it for a 3rd year in a row! I'm going to strip down and shed some light on things!That's right. I'm going to help uncover something big: a cure for cancers below the waist. Cancers 'down there' don't get enough attention. Prostate cancer, ovarian cancer, colon cancer... we need to do something big so that we can kick these diseases to the curb!

That's why I'm running 10kms in BC Cancer Foundation's The Underwear Affair! Thousands of excited people are going to go the distance in whatever state of dress or undress they want, in either the 10K run or the 5K walk. It's going to be a lot of fun, and it all benefits a great cause. With all of us dedicated to this purpose, we'll put cancers below the waist on the run!I've agreed to raise at least $300, so I need your help! Would you please consider making a donation of $20?

Use the link at the bottom of this post, and go visit my site -- and please take the time to support me. Cancers below the waist can affect all of us, and they'll continue affecting future generations unless we do this now.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Pave Culture Cycliste - Barcelona Bike Shop

In March we took a family trip to Spain for spring break.  The primary reason for this trip was to attend football (soccer) matches in Madrid and Barcelona.  As a family, we researched this trip A LOT and found A LOT of very cool things to do in the cities we visited (Madrid, Valencia and Barcelona).  One of those cool things was a destination bike shop in Barcelona.

We set aside one afternoon to head out to the shop.  Not having rented a car, we studied the train routes and schedules and determined it was about 30 mins outside of Barcelona in El Prat del Llobergat.  

After missing our first train by about 2 minutes, we had to wait another 30 minutes for the next train.  This was the first of our missed connections and confusion for this journey.  Once we arrived at the train station closest to the shop, we still had about a 20 minute walk to the shop.  It is an industrial area so there were no taxis to be found.  The whole time we were travelling to the shop, I was secretly worried tha…

In early February, I bought a season's pass to Grouse Mountain.  I have owned a pass in the past but not in for a few years.  My main goal was to get up on Monday and/or Wednesday nights for the Social Snowshoe.  90 minutes snowshoeing up the Snowshoe Grind and over the back side of Dam Mountain.  Headlamps required.

Yes, these are terrible photos.  I only took photos this one time.  I realized that the iPhone will not take good photos in these conditions and you miss the actual moment trying to get a good photo.
In addition to Grouse, I have been up to Cypress Mountain Nordic area two times this season
