The Trans BC Enduro
Cashion Smith and Eva Surls from The Bike Farm at the Trans BC Enduro powered by Stage Cycling
As we recover from the Inaugural Trans BC Enduro powered byStages Cycling we reflect on a week of great times and some of the steepest and rowdiest terrain we’ve ever ridden. We are both super grateful to have finished in one piece and had as much fun as we did along the way. A week spent pushing ourselves physically and mentally, laughing with old friends and making new friends along the way. It was a week we’ll not soon forget.
Cashion learned a lesson in poor tire choice on day two when he brought a carrot to a gun fight which led to three flats. Otherwise his bike held up to the punishment all week long.
While I wasn’t racing I was able to ride every stage but 2 (timing didn’t allow for riding them all) and had a blast helping out with the event. The other volunteers were hilarious and acting as a course marshall allowed me to speak with every rider as they stood at my post. There was a part of me that was bummed I wasn’t racing, but in the end the volunteer group was so much fun that I was happy riding the course and enjoying their company.
We HIGHLY recommend signing up for the 2017 Trans BC if you like riding technical trails in beautiful places with awesome people.
