The Triple Crown, Vancouver BC
Everyone thought we were crazy. “You’re attempting the Triple Crown? The day before the Fondo?”
“Sure” we replied, a bit cavalier but completely out of ignorance. How hard could it be?
It was hard.
The Triple Crown is loosely defined as the summiting of Vancouver’s Seymour, Grouse and Cypress mountains in one effort. There’s no rule regarding in what order the climbs must be done, only that they have to be completed in one day. Apparently this was no easy task on rested legs and we were coming off two rides the day prior. Throw in Grouse’s gravel road and maybe we were crazy after all.
