The PeΓ±on de Ifach looms over the Spanish town of Calpe, on the Costa Blanca. It is a beacon of home when returning from long training rides, and a wonderful backdrop against which to watch the sun rise and set. After staring at it now from the ground during every training camp in this coastal town, I started walking and found myself at the top. Nice to see things from another perspective after all these years! πŸ˜‰β›°

Back in Spain & finally made it to one of my favourite coffee roasters in the area, @dorigencoffee! πŸ˜Šβ˜• No photos from riding as 🍁@gabpilote, @anesantesteban & myself were to busy doing intervals, avoiding forest firesπŸ”₯, and battling the crazy winds🌬 out there today. Still not bad ride conditions compared to the snowy alternative up north! . . . #coffee #happinesswatts #adventureriding #caffeine #carrotcake #cycling #spain #bothhandsonthebars #albir #creatingmemories #keepchallenging

Solid mountain miles today in Mallorca with @corynrivera πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ. Rode the famous Sa Calobra, famous for it's full 360 degree bend in the road. Nearly hit an energetic bounding goat on the way down, but thankfully us and the goat lived to see another day🐐 My favourite rides so far on the island lead to the coast. I'm blown away by the brilliant blue Mediterranean colours!❀πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ . . . #mountainmiles #climbingfordays #mallorca #sacalobra #happinesswatts #mediterranean #cycling #creatingmemories #keepchallenging

Last month, I was approached by @freskincare to test and review one of their products. I was intrigued as their products are geared towards active individuals who sweat a lot, that's me!πŸƒβ€β™€οΈ . Several workouts a day & spending all day in the elements while wearing a helmet can be tough on your skin, so I wanted to give it a shotβ˜€οΈ . 'Detox me' is meant to be used after exercise to help cleanse and prevent post workout breakouts. I added this product to my current skincare routine and was happy with the results. It has a slightly gritty texture, so this helps to exfoliate and cleanse one's skin after working out. The Argan oil did help keep my skin hydrated and soft, even as I've trained in different climates from Canada to Spain. . The biggest appeal of the company for me is that their products are 100% cruelty free🐭, and they help offset their environmental impact by planting an Argan tree in Morocco for every product sold, also empowering the community of women who harvest Argan in the process🌱 .

"There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing"❄ . Thanks @lilscrapperschapp for my first fat biking experience today on the trails at Birdshill park🌲 I had so much fun playing in the snow, and now understand why so many people are jumping on their bikes and emracing winter across Canada! 😊 . . . #winterpeg #hoponcanada #nobadweatherjustbadclothing #fatbiking #embracewinter #happinesswatts #wintercycling #outsideisfree #birdshillpark #cycling #creatingmemories #keepchallenging
