I had registered for the Highwood Pass Gran Fondo which looked quite challenging as it would take us over the highest paved road in Alberta. Unfortunately, a good portion of the road was damaged during the floods so we were re-routed from Cline River to Rocky Mountain House. I was bummed to miss out on a lot of climbing as I know I need this training for Ironman, but was happy to still have a route to ride nonetheless.
With our stops included, we finished the ride in five hours and forty-five minutes. With this being my second-longest ride ever (Banff-Jasper being my longest yet) I was quite pleased with my efforts and happy to get in the mileage.
