Since January I have been spending a lot of time outside working and riding the Fat tired trike. This year I decided I wanted some challenge in my life and decided to do the Actif Epica Race. I have been pre-riding the race route in parts to learn it. I knew what to expect so I thought. There was almost 70 people who were starting this race on bikes and 20 runners. Yes, as you read this you are thinking who would ride a bike 135 km though the snow, never mind who would be crazy enough to run it. Some of the riders came from far away, from the US and other provinces in Canada. All the runners were local.

One of people who helped out is making a video of the race. Here is a trailer he made. The full video will come later. Actif Epica Race trailer.
Only 33 cyclists finished out of 69. Only 5 runners out of 20 finished. It was the toughest year so far they said about this race. The important thing to me is I stuck to my plan, ate well, and drank well and came home warm and in good shape. I met some great people and had lots of FUN....
