120.9km bike ride from University of Alberta to Elk Island Park

How far can you bike ride in a single day? If you spent your entire day on a bike, filled your bag full of energy-rich food, and the conditions were perfect? If the road was flat, and almost entirely empty? If your gears and brakes were perfectly tuned, your muscles were stretched, and your glasses were polished clean on a cotton shirt?

Turns out that distance for me was 120.9 km. Todd, Kevin and I jump on the bikes after a morning tune-up, fill up and went hard east… all the way to beautiful Astotin Lake Area at Elk Island Park.

RunKeeper unfortunately crashed on my Google Nexus halfway through the trip back, but luckily Kevin’s kept on trucking and managed to capture our entire trip out and the trip back. Pretty incredible.
