Plan B: Adventures with Sandra Walter
Cycling BC’s 2020 Community Award Winner for Adventure Rider of the Year, Sandra Walter, talks to us about her bikepacking adventures and how 2020 reminded her the value of having a plan B and maybe even a plan C when plan A gets thrown off track. With her race schedule sidelined in 2020, she opted to take the summer to explore many parts of the province by bike. She spent 10 days riding from Penticton to Harrison Hot Springs via Lillooet and the infamous Hurley road. She also hit the BC trail headed in the opposite direction riding from the Okanagan to Fernie, BC. In between her bike adventures she taught Cyclo-cross clinics and also founded the Girls Ride Club, a grassroots initiative to get more young women riding mountain bikes.
