Vancouver primarily with a good dose of the Pacific North West.
We’re lucky here in Vancouver in we have a backyard of ocean roads, climbing mountains and forested trails.The selection I chose highlights some of those rides, all within in hours ride of Vancouver. Nothing beats watching the sun rise along the ocean before heading into the forest and watching that same sunburn the morning fog off through the trees.
I’ve been interested in both for a long time, and it wasn't until a trip to the states that the two passions came together. With cycling you're always seeing something new, so capturing those moments with a camera was a surprisingly simple intersection of passions. Now, the two are inseparable.
On the bike front I have three, two fixed gear bikes and my road bike. For fixed I have a Leader Renovatio track bike thats my pride and joy, and a older State Bicycle Contender which is fendered for those rainy days. My road bike is a Cannondale CAAD 10 road bike which is the adventure bike. It takes a beating on those gravel rides I’ve put it through but hasn’t let me down yet. For cameras, I have a Sony RX100M3 and a Fuji X-T1. Both have their strong suits so it depends on the ride which I take.
Typically I use a sling so that I can shoot while riding, although with the Sony it can be put in a jersey pocket on those rainy rides. I hardly ever stage a shot so being able to capture it while on the move is crucial.
Beer! Coffee before and during, but beer always after.
Wax at the start of the season, shave after that. Can’t let the hair grow back until the fall.
Garmin, although I don't post everything I record. Usually I record for personal statistics and to keep a record of where I've been, but I’m definitely more into the ride than the KOM’s.
