Get Cam to pronounce the name of the ride for you sometime ...
How long is the climb? FOREVER
So, our epic ride during training camp was the Ironman Canada Course plus. We added the climb to the Anarchist Lookout in Osoyoos, skipped the out-and-back in Cawston, and went back to Penticton via Green Mountain Road. Then, a quick spin out to Skaha Bluffs to secure the first 200 km ride of the season (and for me, ever).

And of course we took the requisite stop at the Bear. Why don't they have any energy bars? Brian, you should work on that
The pump that is not a pump
Great ride with some great friends.
