It's mostly flat road. There are two hills that are a decent climb.

I wouldn't pay $200 to ride the valley...

But, I did pay $200 to ride Vancouver to whistler. At least the whistler fondo ends somewhere cool with a party zone lol

3:42 is pretty good in my eyes! I started this year just over the 4:00 mark. getting closer and closer to 3:00 every time now!

Although that 93km/h max speed is crazy

Just gonna throw it out there for you guys...

I picked up two 3T Ergonova Pro handlebars (alloy - NOT carbon) but I'm having a slight change of heart on them. I still prefer my 3T Ergosum Pro bars. I can either return them (and take a hit on shipping) or sell them at cost for what I got them for @ $70 each. Both bars are a 44cm, centre to centre. (I will not be listing them on Craigslist or Pinkbike.)

3T Cycling - ERGONOVA

Lemme know if interested!

A friend of mine has a Madone that would fit him, it's posted on Craigslist right now, for $1350. Decent deal.

I went for a quick spin with a lady friend today, and we did the Stanley Park loop as well. No, I'm not on Strava, but wanted to see what the fuss was all about on Prospect Point. Did it in under 3. But only because the lady friend wanted to race me up.

I did an evening loop out to Stanley Park with a buddy last night. It's been a while, and I too wanted to see the whole fuss about the hill climb, ended up at 3:39. I didn't realize where the start end points were exactly so I burned up a bunch of energy prior to the left turn, and eased up too early just after Prospect Point. I'm thinking 3:30 should be a good time once I get familiar with the turns and where I can give 'er a bit, maybe aim to 3:15 by end of the summer. Just need to plan the attack and strategize better

Whoa that's a good deal! I gotta say I really like the egg shaped tops on those bars... makes climbing so much more.. enjoyable?? And the drops aren't too aggressive.

Anyways... I think I paid quite a bit more for mine online and I had to wait for a long time.

Happened on my ride yesterday to Iona Beach and Steveston. Stopped by my co-worker's house (full of glass) and speed spiked up to 97km/h. I was so happy for a second but I knew it was too good to be true.
