Bike Tip #7 - Pedal Stroke & Body Position

Lesley Tomlinson and Gina Grain from TaG Cycling really know their stuff. With many years of competitive cycling between them, these past Olympians explain what you can achieve with a great pedal stroke and a good upper body position. I’m in training for GearUp4CF, a charity bike ride from Vancouver to Banff. If you’d like to contribute to my efforts and cystic fibrosis research, you can do that here. It’s very much appreciated. And many thanks to Lesley and Gina for their time and expertise, and thanks also to the excellent demonstration cyclists who rode with them. Find Lesley and Gina at

A Conversation with George Keulen

George Keulen has set a lofty goal for himself. He will attempt to cycle 1200 km in 9 days over mountainous terrain from Vancouver to Banff on the GearUp4CF ride. Despite having cystic fibrosis, diabetes, and now being immune suppressed because of a double lung transplant, George is determined to live life to the fullest and pursue a monumental challenge. If able, please support George’s ride or my ride. All money raised by GearUp4CF riders goes to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and supports research towards finding a cure for CF. For transplant information and to register to become an organ donor: BC Transplant.

Bike Tip #6 - Cadence

Here’s more from Andrew Powell and Andrea Taylor. This time they explain “cadence.” Cadence refers to the revolutions of the bike pedals and is an integral part of cycling efficiency. Thanks to West Point Cycles in Vancouver. All funds raised from my GearUp4CF ride goes to Cystic Fibrosis research. Check out Andrew’s triathlete blog here.
