I am riding the STP this weekend. Basically it is going to be a public display of embarasment. I am stoked but a wee bit scared… 210 miles!

Is anyone else there partaking in the ride?

Are you doing the 1 or 2 day STP?

Either way, good luck and have fun!

This trip to Kelowna was definately an undertaking - Liam and I had been planning this project for 24 hours. We worked really hard to pull out all the stops in this video. We had slo-mo goggle shots; time lapses; pedal flips; outrageous product shots; unloading and loading the bike; walking through the field with your hand in wheat. At the end of the day this trip was all about just getting out and riding with all my friends.

I did it yesterday… 1 day… 204 miles… 10 hours and 56 minutes… 30 km/h average speed.

Today I am trying to locate my legs! One of the best things that I have ever done!

I rode in a group of 3… but you end up in groups much larger when you are drafting.

My girlfriend drove me to Seattle and thats where I met Chris and Paul. Got dropped off at the start and then she drove to Portland with my buddies girlfriend to volunteer for Whole Foods at the finish line.

Then we drove back!

One of the best experiences of my life!

The traffic from the stp is horrible though :)

It runs through the back roads… around 10,000 people!

It was killer… about only a 1/4 finish the first day with the remainder finishing the second day!
