Trish, Pat and I had a nice afternoon of lounging and eating, then got geared up for the banquet. It was good, bunch of awards and speeches, the videos are always great, then it was time to get the party going. Trish and I had a great time after Pat dropped us off, I think I sweat more/burned more calories than during the race. Good times.
Riding home on the bus the next day, I thought to how BC Bike Race always brings good experiences. Ride bikes on awesome trails, eat great food, sleep well, meet great people, and just enjoy life. That's a recipe I can't go wrong with. It's the most fun race I've ever participated in for its mix of trails, sensible riding quantity, and then just the overall atmosphere.
