Sea to Sea Bike Tour 2017

The views have been fantastic and the riding has sometimes been challenging,” said one bicyclist. “On our toughest day, we climbed 2,200 meters in near 90-degree heat. The elevation, the heat, and the hilly terrain were rough, but the riders worked together to encourage each other and we all made it safely to Calgary by the end of the day.”

Sea to Sea: Stretched to the Limits

It was another long distance traveling from Chaplin to Regina, Saskatchewan: about 161 kms. The wind was mostly north-east which means it was blowing against us at about 25 km / hour. I started the day by leading the group with a prayer focused on Deuteronomy 8:10-18 and Philippians 4:13, where we are reminded not to put our trust or pride in our own strength but in God, who gives us the ability to do all things through Christ, who gives us the strength. We sure did need God's strength to make it through the day.

Feet for Peace

Now that the snow has finally melted, I am back on track with cycling on a more regular basis. Today, I managed to do about 35 kms. It felt like I was flying for the first half of the ride but the way back was tough going with a head-strong wind blowing at 32 km/h. My feet felt frozen after cycling for over an hour since the temperature was still only about 4 C and reaching home, they took about an hour to thaw. No wonder I’ve been thinking a lot about feet a lot lately!

Gearing Up!

Do you know what it’s like to be part of a cyclist’s culture? I had no idea until I recently registered for the Sea to Sea ride. In about three months, from June to August, there will be about a hundred riders who will participate in cycling a portion or the entire route from Vancouver to Halifax. Imagine the spirit it takes to cycle day after day for about 100 to 150 kms each day!

On August 8, Betty Adam woke up knowing that it was going to be a day that she put herself to the test. She planned to cycle 100 kilometers (62 miles) and climb 2,025 meters (6,646 feet) to the summit of Going to the Sun Road in Montana as the last challenge of a summer committed to helping people in poverty.
